Of all the mountain valleys in Boulder County the road to Gold Lake Ranch is my favorite. Lightly traveled and off the beaten path it holds a special magic and hearkens to what things must have been like 100 years ago. At a certain place the road opens up to vast meadows with aspen groves, and eyepopping views to the east across the great plains, a humbling sight. Looking to the west you see the majestic Indian Peaks wilderness and Rocky Mountain National Park (together one of the largest roadless areas in the US) rising up in snowy splendor. You can almost reach out and touch them. This is where the property at 1386 Gold Lake Rd is located. Rarely do properties like this come on the market. Walk out the front door and hike anywhere. You'll probably be the only one there. The vast meadows nearby become lush in spring and the ponds attract migratory birds returning to their nesting grounds. There is abundant wildlife including elk, moose, bear, mountain lion, and more. The artistic spiral cabin has tremendous character plus there is a separate 2 story 900 sq ft studio/office bedroom with a 3/4 bath. 200 yards from the cabin on the property there is an observation deck with giant views in every direction. Previous owners contemplated putting a yurt structure up there) to house their telescope. The night sky is beyond thrilling. When you want some "people action" its a scenic easy ride to Boulder down Lefthand Canyon. This is a "must see" Call me, lets go take a look
