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

We represent an outstanding, rural mountain lifestyle that promotes health, sustainability, independence, a symbiotic relationship with nature, contemplativeness, and technology.

Our signature portfolio of contemporary architecture is inspired by and intentionally juxtoposed to Colorado's world renowned, gold belt vernacular. We are at the forefront of 'grid independant' lifestyles satisfied by the latest in solar PV, lithium ferrous phosphate battery storage,and backup technology. Our lifestyle isn't for everyone and we are careful to determine if it is a good fit for the inquisitive. We are proud that these homes are framed by Native American master carpenters.

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.

These homes are private, sleek and secluded, contemporary and beautiful. Striking glass and expansive decks overlook sweeping mountain valleys below and inspiring Continental Divide views beyond.

"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."
