"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
Colorado Prospector Homes specialize in the development, design, construction and sale of exclusive homes and retreats on stunning gold mine acreage 40 minutes west of Denver.
Our homes are designed to fit harmoniously into the landscape, blending our version of rustic timelessness with a contemporary sensibility. Sustainability, efficiency, employing local materials and artisans are paramount to our vision. Colorado Prospector Homes are custom designed to fit each site's topography and views, structurally engineered to sustain snow and wind loads for 10,000+ feet in elevation. We are also specialists in Solar PV, lithium ion battery systems and backup technology.
The Gold Mine Lodes on which each home is thoughtfully placed were patented out of the Louisiana Purchase by the President of the United States to 19th century gold prospectors. Historic hand drawn Plats, Field Notes and Patents to these properties are archived at the US Bureau of Land Management. Less than one hour's drive from DIA to the east and Summit County to the west, these extraordinary south facing properties offer solitude and exceptional views of Mt. Evans, Grays and Torres, St. Mary's Glacier, the Continental Divide, undeveloped Pewabic and Bellevue Mountains, Denver and the Great Plains.
We have assembled an integrated team of developers, architects, engineers, historians, craftspeople, land owners, and real estate professionals to ensure a turnkey solution for our clients. Our mission is to provide a unique experience when building your dream home on inspiring acreage that is fun, educational, and collaborative.
