Colorado Prospector Homes develops, designs, and constructs unique lifestyles on historic gold mining acreage quietly nestled somewhere in between Denver and Summit County…

We represent an outstanding, rural mountain sensibility that promotes health, sustainability, independence, contemplativeness, and technology.

Our signature portfolio of contemporary architecture is inspired by Colorado's world renowned, gold belt vernacular. We are at the forefront of 'grid independent' lifestyles satisfied by the latest in solar PV, lithium battery storage, and backup power technology. This lifestyle is not for everyone.

Each home is unique and named after the gold mine lode (mineral rights included) or Mill Site on which it is built. Documentation of the historic properties, including 19th century hand drawn Patents, Plats, and Field notes are archived at the United States Bureau of Land Management.

Self-reliance. Abundant wildlife... and DIA is close enough...

"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately...to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."

Henry David Thoreau
