"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 specializes in the development, design, construction and sales of exclusive homes and retreats on historic gold mining acreage less than one hour's drive from Denver, Colorado.
Our homes are custom designed to maximize Continental Divide views and harmoniously embrace each home site's unique topography. Rustic, gold mining era inspired exteriors blend into the landscape and are juxtaposed to contemporary, loft-like, expansive, and sophisticated interiors. Each home is structurally engineered to sustain wind and snow loads for 10,000+ feet in elevation. We are specialists in Solar PV, lithium ion battery and backup technologies (off-grid).
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. Mineral rights are included on all properties. Half way between DIA to the east and Summit County to the west, these extraordinary south facing properties offer solitude and exceptional views of the Continental Divide, Denver and the Great Plains.
We are an integrated team of developers, architects, engineers, historians, artisans, land owners, and real estate professionals that deliver a turnkey solution for our clients. We deliver a unique experience when building your dream home on inspiring acreage that is fun, educational, and collaborative.
