The Little Thompson River Homestead (approximately 155 acres) is rich in history and a unique opportunity for some lucky buyer. Stretching beyond the banks of the Little Thompson River, with year- round access via Highway 36, it is conveniently located 15-20 minutes from Estes Park and Lyons, CO, and 35 minutes to Boulder, CO. This area is an excellent base for recreational opportunities. LandThe river meanders through the full length of the property, with a year-round flow that supports small trout and is a great water source for local wildlife. Several locations along the river make great camping sites. The property is comprised of a diverse landscape with a broad elevation range. The terrain includes north facing healthy pine, fir and aspen groves, river bottom, and south facing open hillsides, all of which are beneficial to wildlife. Remnants of the old historic road to Estes Park remain, providing access through the property and along the river. ImprovementsTwo old homestead outbuildings stand beside a primitive cabin, which could be updated and adapted to modern living. For those wanting to build your dream home, the river makes for a picturesque setting with multiple accessible building locations and electrical power is already at the property. A well and septic would be required. RecreationThe property is bordered by National Forest on three sides, so is surrounded by natural beauty. Elk, mule deer, bear, big horn sheep, and turkeys call this area home. Recreational activities are endless in this part of Colorado and include hiking, mountain biking, fishing, hunting, horseback riding, ATV riding, and so much more. LocationThis original homestead property, whose size and character are rarely found in this area, has never before been on the market. With easy proximity to Boulder, the quaint towns of Lyons and Estes Park, only about 1 1/2 hours to the Denver airport and with year-round accessibility, this type of property is a rare find in todays market.
