Arapaho Creek Retreat is a unique ranch offering that's located just southwest of Denver, Colorado. These 222 contiguous acres are surrounded by the Arapaho National Forest and provide a ton of future options, be it recreational, development, or conservation easement. This property provides the hard to come by combination of remote privacy yet quick access back to the conveniences and amenities that the front range has to offer. This ranch boasts a year-round flowing creek, newly remodeled ranch residence, and detached bunkhouse / studio.
Located about halfway between the foothill towns of Evergreen and Conifer, Arapaho Creek Retreat offers a great mix of trees, topography, wildlife, and water. Cub Creek runs the length of the property and provides a source of water for the abundant wildlife. Elk, Mule Deer, Black Bear, Fox, and a host of small game inhabit the property. Located in Game Management Unit 39, this is a limited draw unit and provides amazing Elk and Deer hunting opportunities. The mix of Aspen groves, Spruce, Evergreen, Pine and natural grasses create the perfect combination of food and security for the big game animals Colorado is famous for. While the 222 contiguous acres provide a ton of room to hike, hunt, camp, or build, the ranch is completely surrounded by the Arapaho National Forest. This provides thousands upon thousands of acres to continue your outdoor adventures on.
The ranch is unencumbered by covenants, by-laws, or conservation easements, leaving the next owners free to live and/or develop as they please. The property has a 1,200 sqft ranch home on it that has new floors, appliances, and furnace, In addition, there is a detached unfinished building that would work perfectly as a bunkhouse, art studio, or office.

Last but not least, the location! Forget about battling traffic on I-70 or driving 3-4 hours to get away from the crowds. This property is 15 minutes from Evergreen and another 15 minutes to Denver. But while you're here, you'll feel like your a hundred miles from anyone. No road noise, no neighbors, no HOA, no one else has access through the property! This is the rare private mountain ranch that you could still commute to downtown Denver for work if you wanted.
