Welcome to Silver Lode Ranch, where Colorado history meets fly fishing dreams. 36.91 acres with the world-class fishery of the Knight-Imler SWA & headwaters of the South Platte River, curving for a full 1/4 mile through this amazing site. The access is incredible: located on Hwy 285, you'll be just ten minutes south of Fairplay, for groceries, festivals, & supplies, and only 45 min. to the slopes of Breckenridge. It's 35min. to Buena Vista for shopping, dining, and 4-wheeling adventures, & a short 1.5 hr. drive to Denver or CO. Springs.
This property is ready for your dreams! The registered domestic well was inspected in the last 5 years, & found to be in exc. cond., with an exceptional flow rate. There is also a CDOT access permit for Hwy 285, that allows plenty of use! (The current owner planned a Bed & Breakfast, what will you dream of here?) There is access from Rogers Rd. to the east, if you prefer to wait a bit, before replacing the bridge over the river.
Did I mention history? The driveway is a natural extension of Weston Pass Road (to the west), and was a part of Colorado's Silver Boom, from 1873 to 1893. It was a toll-road from Denver and CO Springs to the Silver Lode in Leadville. The story goes: while most of the silver miners didn't make out too well, the toll-road builders made a fortune! When you begin to build your dream home, who knows what treasures you may find from those miners of old?
Building at Silver Lode Ranch will be a dream. The land is gentle & has a perfect building site above the river: not too steep, but well above the floodplain & perfect for a home with a walkout basement, where you can look over the water and the amazing views. From here you can see the amazing 13k ft Buffalo Peaks, & all the way to the snow capped peaks of Hoosier Pass. Behind you to the east, is enough land to build a barn, & have a few horses. Plant some pine trees along the western fence line, to soften the traffic. Welcome home.
