This unique opportunity has appeal at both ends of the spectrum. An owner who desires the breathing room and exclusivity of a large private retreat on the doorstep of a vibrant Rocky Mountain city will find nothing else quite like this. Meanwhile, a developer will enjoy a blank canvas upon which a comprehensive development plan can be executed. This large property is available for purchase for the first time in decades. There are over 105 highly developable acres with a gentle topography and expansive views in all directions. It is adjacent to all services and is subject to an array of zoning including high density housing. Although it is offered for sale only as a single transaction, a new owner will have seven legal parcels with six zoning designations, providing immediate flexibility to use some of the property as a hideaway, while developing part or all of it. No matter how it is used, the property enjoys all the amenities of the city, plus easy access to recreation on the new Mt. Dean Stone recreational area established by Five Valleys Land Trust and partners.
