*Sanctity. Rocky Mountain high views. Life infused by nature. LIV Elevated at Peregrine Ranch.*
Peregrine Ranch is an unrivaled and rare 559-acre piece of land minutes from the town of Golden. Experience unparalleled mountain living without the hassle of commuting up the busy I-70 corridor. Nestled in the foothills between expansive Open Space and exclusive luxury home developments, this heavily sought-after land is the only such large parcel of undeveloped land this close to Boulder and Denver, and an hour to the nearest ski resort. The land offers a blank slate for residential development, a spiritual retreat or a private mountain ranch. Breathtaking city and mountain views, rambling peaks, captivating rock formations, a meandering stream and abundant wildlife make this ranch land picture-perfect place. Rugged and gentle terrain, forested foothills, vistas and watersheds create dramatic elevation changes. The land is well-suited for outdoor adventures like horse-back riding, hunting, rock-climbing, camping, hiking, meditation, nature watching, and ranching.
WILDLIFE EXPERIENCE: Named for its soaring peregrine falcons, Peregrine Ranch is home to abundant wildlife. With critical biological resources like the habitat for Preble’s Jumping Mouse, an elk/deer migration corridor down Ralston Creek, moose, and bear and raptor habitats, nature abounds at every bend and peak.
MINING HISTORY/RESTORATION: Peregrine Ranch was once part of a larger property that included underground pitchblende ore and aggregate mines - a part of Colorado’s rich mining history. Closed in 1995, the 1000’ ft deep mines offer little evidence of the historical importance they once played. A small mine water treatment plant operates on the property. The stream that runs through the property has been re-constructed to follow a sinuous path, include wetland areas, and restore the natural beauty of the valley and critical wildlife habitat.
