One lucky millionaire has just snatched up a dream property in the San Juan Mountains of southwestern Colorado.
Sotheby’s describes the 305-acre property as a “historic masterpiece”.
You can read and learn more about the property in the video below:
“A unique opportunity to own a well maintained piece of Colorado’s mining heritage. This holding consists of 31 patented mining claims, 305.7153 acres and multiple historic mining buildings.
When you arrive on the property you can feel the history. Ore was originally found in the Carson Mining District in 1881, and countless people came to the area over the years in search of their fortune.
The remaining buildings are considered to be one of the most famous Colorado ghost towns. Possibilities are endless for this one of a kind property. Turn this historic masterpiece into a family retreat, hunting lodge, summer camp, back county ski outfit, or anything else you can imagine (of course anything you chose to do would need to be researched to be sure it is permitted).
The property has beaver ponds, creeks, access to the continental divide and views that seem never ending. Located in hunting unit 66 and very close to 76, the hunting access is incredible. Don’t miss out on the chance to own such a historic property.”
Here’s hoping whoever bought it will work to preserve it.
Maybe they’ll turn it into a backcountry skiing operation?
That would be cool.
