By Colorado Living, Owning a Home, Specialty Homes

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to own a piece of Colorado? With new and unusual listings popping up on real estate websites, Colorado home buyers can find interesting properties to fit their lifestyle. 2017 has seen some remarkable properties for sale so far – here are some of the most extreme property sales we’ve seen this year:

Own a Mountain

In August of this year, someone actually purchased Culebra Peak, a 14er located on private property in southern Colorado. Cielo Vista Ranch was listed for $105 million. For Coloradans setting out to hike all the 14ers in the state, they’ll have to get permission from the new owner to bag the 14,049′ peak of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains located within this extreme property.

Live inside a National Park

Some of the most majestic land in Colorado is within the state’s national parks. If you’ve ever dreamed about living among untouched forest and in prestine natue, you have a chance… Black Canyon Reserve is on the market for $5.5 million. 33 acres of private land is tucked away inside the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park.

Buy 200,000 Acres (for $100 million)

One of the largest ranches in the country is on the market – Cross Mountain Ranch. Near Steamboat Springs, this expansive property includes several homes and a hunting lodge. Conservationists are drawn to the natural environment, frequently visited by sage grouse and elk herds. Portions of the property can be purchased separately, noted Mirr Ranch Group in the details about this extreme property.

Purchase an entire Colorado Ghost Town

What is it like to buy a Colorado Town? NPR featured the story of Cabin Creek, a Colorado ghost town that was sold in January 2017. The prior owners advertised the sale of this extreme property on Craigslist. The town sale included a gas station, motel, cafe, RV park, and shooting range – a unique business opportunity for the new owner.
