If you're lucky, you might be able to purchase this unique estate just 15 minutes from the Colorado gambling towns of Blackhawk and Central City and less than an hour's drive from Denver proper.
Listed for $15 million, this 300-acre property on Mount Thomas boasts five buildings, approximately seven miles of private roads and trails and a direct private entrance to Golden Gate Canyon State Park.
The property's base is at 8,600 feet, where its pond house is located, and its peak at 9,325 feet above sea level is anchored by the estate's 11,300-square-foot summit house.
Inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright, architect Donald Ruggles, CEO of Denver-based Ruggles Mabe Studio, designed the 11,300-square-foot summit house to blend into the property's natural features while also paying respect to Gilpin County’s mining heyday in the 1800s, according to the home's listing website.
