GLENWOOD SPRINGS HISTORY
Originally inhabited by nomadic Ute Indian tribes, this area of bubbling hot springs has long been a destination for the health seeker. In the early 1880's, James Landis homesteaded the confluence of the Roaring Fork and Grand Rivers that would become Glenwood Springs.
Early settlers Isaac Cooper and Walter Devereux saw the potential for Glenwood Springs to become a highly regarded destination and developed these amenities into a world class resort. The arrival of the railroads in 1887 brought the first trainloads of tourists to enjoy all that Glenwood had to offer. The addition of the Vapor Caves, Hotel Colorado and Fairy Caves provided a total package for travelers. The local economy was not only fueled by tourism but also by coal mining, farming and ranching, commerce and outdoor recreation. A visit to historic Glenwood Springs will take guests back in time to enjoy all of the amenities that were formerly reserved for the well-to-do.

A note to caution you:*"Why this property might not be for you."* If you like the ability to nestle several miles from any traffic or the city, then this lot will not be remote enough for you. Go buy one of those from an association for $350K+, conform to their rules and lifestyle, or you might find a lower priced 30+ acreage parcel with difficult or no road access from an individual seller. There's a few of those around, even on my "Sold or For Sale"- Comparative Properties List- See Pictures 22 and 23 for a Detailed Summary Overview that supports the Current Market Value of this property to be $204K.
Although there is a steep grade on the front half of this property near the road, the land is more level on the NW corner of the upper back half, which, if you built a house there or brought in your "tiny house," you would have about ¼ mile of vegetation and distance to ensure your privacy from the nearest road. Another possible spot for a house is on the lower SE corner nearer to Midland Ave. Any road access will require ingenuity and construction or road building experience.
There are no immediate neighbors on the privately owned parcels N or S of this property. The western border lies adjacent to 600 acres of BLM owned public land to the West, Northwest and Southwest in essence giving you a huge wilderness to potentially bike, hike, camp, fish, hunt or fly a kite in...if the 30+ acres that you own isn't large enough to satisfy your appetite for exploring, adventure or just to help you feel the freedom in enjoying the pristine colors and natural habitat surrounding you in all four seasons; Spring, Summer, Fall and especially WINTER. Brrr!
Those who savor more independence and freedom in their lifestyle with food, animals or Nature's awesome (sometimes fragile, sometimes harsh or unpredictable) personality, will be a good fit for this ample 31.58 acre mountainside. Maybe do something innovative like create a "EARTH BERMED HOUSE" nestled into the hillside as good as any HOBBIT SHIRE. Forget living crammed in a house on a 6000 sq. ft. lot, where anyone bumps into each other or can inspect most everything about you just by looking over the fence or in your windows. That's not country living. AND...Why pay the same or more for a fraction of an acre, than you will be paying for over 30 acres here in this opportunity. You won't find another parcel this size, to comfortably exercise your freedoms in, and still be close to the city; for anywhere near our asking price.
