Property Description

Silver Mountain Ranch is a unique offering located near the base of St. Mary's Glacier in Clear Creek County, Colorado. This 35-acre lot encompasses a mix of pine and aspen trees and borders the Arapaho National Forest along the entire East boundary.  In addition, Fall Ridge Road runs along the West side of the property with the option to bring power off of the road. There are a variety of different building sites available to take advantage of the amazing views of the snow-capped mountains. As an added bonus, most of the Mineral Rights are owned by the Seller and will pass to the Buyer at closing! This mountainous property boasts a hard-to-find combination of privacy, views, and easy access and could be sub-divided. To cap it off, the property has its own natural ephemeral spring!

Did we mention location? Silver Mountain Ranch is located just 10 miles from Idaho Springs and I-70, making it the ideal halfway point between Denver and the world-famous ski areas of Breckenridge, Winter Park, Keystone, and Copper Mountain to the West. Yet this property makes you feel like you are 100 miles from anywhere with amazing views of the snow-capped mountains and endless recreational opportunities. For the outdoor enthusiast, this property provides the opportunity to hunt trophy Elk and Mule Deer, hike, camp, snowshoe, snowmobile, and ride horseback in the tens of thousands of acres of national forest that it borders. 

This diverse property also provides the opportunity to build your ideal mountain home or getaway cabin. Fall Ridge Road is a paved, well-maintained, county road that allows easy access and power to anywhere you pick to as your building envelope.  Additionally, the south-facing slope is ideal for snow-melt, solar panels, and driveways.  The area surrounding this property is unique and beautiful as well. Just a mile further up Fall Ridge Road is the base of the famous St. Mary's Glacier. The glacier itself is just a short hike from the parking areas at the end of Fall Ridge Road. The town of Idaho Springs boasts a number of restaurants, breweries, schools, and shops. The iconic gambling towns of Black Hawk and Central City are only 20 miles away as well. 

In summary, Silver Mountain Ranch is close, but not too close, to hundreds of attractions Colorado has to offer. All the while providing the classic Rocky Mountain experience that is so sought after. Call Mike Callan today to schedule a time to tour this property; 970-406-8335 or email:
