Here’s an Off-Grid Foothills Home With Continental Divide Views

This 7-acre, 3-bedroom, 2,072-sq.-ft. home at 1795 York Gulch Road is my favorite listing ever. I’d buy it myself if I didn’t need to be closer to my office and clients.  It is possibly the best engineered house I’ve ever listed — and it is completely self-sufficient regarding electricity and water! Solar panels feed a battery pack providing uninterrupted 220-Volt power, with two backup generators that are hardly ever needed. County maintained roads lead to it, and a firehouse is less than a mile away. It enjoys great cell service and internet too! At 9,250 feet elevation (with great views of the Continental Divide) it needs no A/C and has flexible heating options, including 2 wood stoves, a propane forced air furnace, and 2 wall heaters. The acreage is south facing, so snow melts readily, making this a rare year-round home, considering its elevation.

If you like the idea of being in the mountains but only 30 minutes from the metro area, watch the video tour at, then call your agent or me at 303-525-1851 for a private showing! This home is three miles from Exit 238 of  I-70 (Fall River Road). Pictured below is a pasture across York Gulch Road that is part of this parcel. An adjoining 5-acre buildable parcel is also available at a discount. The combined 12-acre property is bordered by National Forest.

Note: Seller will pay $6,000 of buyer’s closing costs or contribute that amount for other expenses.

Showings are granted only to buyers who have first watched the  video tour at

Then call your agent or Leo Swoyer at 720-933-1968 for a private showing.
