1117 5th Ave, Lyons


Here is a rare opportunity for a big real estate play. This 56-acre property is sandwiched between the Town of Lyons and Boulder County Open Space, contiguous with both in part. It was once a sandstone quarry and the extensive bare rock surfaces testify to that but decades of re-hab filling have rendered it into a stunning parcel that enjoys captivating views and an amphitheater centered around a pond. It is currently part of an IGA agreement between the two government entities, which agreement is under review. It is anticipated that annexation to the town is a medium term possibility; otherwise its potential as an executive, single-family home site is unique.

The site has some improvements in the lower reaches but nothing in the higher elevations. An easement for water and power for a future connection to the town’s reticulation is in place, along with a conduit for the power and a pipe for the water. The existing improvements are connected to an onsite wastewater treatment facility but any development would require an upgrade or a connection to the town’s sewer at the south end of the property. The ‘blueline’—the contour at which the town’s existing water supply could deliver water at pressure transects the lower third of the property in SSW direction.
