Standing proudly in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains, welcome to this once in a lifetime opportunity to own an iconic feature of the Boulder County landscape, Haystack Mountain. Offered as a whole, this 105-acre parcel includes 31 shares of Left-Hand Ditch Water and Mineral Rights. The property also allows the new owner the option to create three 35-acre buildable parcels, all with no conservation easement(s). This property is a prime location to build a private residence with panoramic views of Longs Peak, the snowcapped back range, Boulder's Flatirons, and incredible long distance views overlooking Boulder County. Enjoy the peace and tranquility of country living along with convenient access to nearby amenities and easy commutes to downtown Boulder, Niwot, Longmont, and Denver International Airport. Once thought to be a volcano, its peak sits at an elevation of 5,579 FT, which claims to be the highest point from the Front Range all the way to North Carolina. Geologists now believe rivers and streams slowly eroded part of the Table Mountain Plateau creating Haystack Mountain as we know it today. The mountain and its environs have hosted elk, deer, mountain lions, black bears, coyotes, fox, bobcats, marmots, both bald and golden eagles, great horned owls along with many other raptors, and many fossils have been found on the mountain and its knolls. This land rich in history, can trace its roots from the early Native American tribes who used its peak as a buffalo herd lookout and the surrounding area was a wintering location for the Arapaho tribe led by chief Niwot. Haystack Mountain is said to have earned its name from early settlers and dairy farmers. Mary Elizabeth Bader Arbuthnot, the first pioneer to own Haystack Mountain, acquired the land from the U.S. Government in the 1800s. The property as it sits today has been with the current family for almost 60 years. Please contact Jeff Erickson or Ryan McIntosh for additional information and with any questions.
