Just over thirty-seven acres of an amazing part of Colorado Springs just went up for sale: you can own the incredible address of 1 Gold Camp Road for $1.75 million. If I were to describe my dream for the perfect place to build a home, this would be it:
This piece of land was originally owned by the founder of Colorado Springs, General William Jackson Palmer. He willed it to an administrative assistant and it was passed down from there until it was sold to Rare Properties, LLC for $900,000 in 2005. Rare, indeed! I doubt there’s any privately-owned land in Colorado Springs that’s as unique as this one. There’s even part of a cabin the general used remaining on the property.
Here’s one of our personal pictures of Helen Hunt Falls, the waterfall this property overlooks:
Gold Camp Road is one of our favorite easy drives in Colorado Springs, and the falls are really a beautiful spot – I hope whoever buys this treasure will preserve its natural beauty and serenity!
