This vacant, level residential building lot is nestled between modern new construction and the traditional historic charm of downtown Steamboat Springs. Surrounded by natural beauty, the lot is just over .11 acres with views of the Steamboat ski area. Expansion at the ski mountain began in the summer of 2022 and when complete, Steamboat will be the second largest ski resort in Colorado. The Butcherknife Creek trail, Spring Creek trail, and Stehley Park are a stone's throw from the lot and access to great mountain hiking is just steps away. Downtown Steamboat, with its impressive variety of restaurants and boutique shops, is just a few blocks. K-12 public schools, ranked among the top 5% in the state, and a highly rated K-12 private school are all within a small radius of the property.


The lot is being platted now and will have Old Town Residential zoning and water, sewer, and underground electric ready for a new single-family home. Vacant lots downtown are very rare; take advantage of the opportunity to build soon in one of Colorado’s best resort towns!

Recreational Amenities

This part of northwest Colorado is known for its outstanding recreational amenities.  Fifty percent of the land in Routt County is public land, providing a lifetime of exploring and enjoying the great outdoors.  Several forest access points and fishing along the Elk and Yampa Rivers are just a couple of miles from the vibrant downtown corridor.  The core trail parallels the Yampa River and stretches for miles from one end of town to the other.  Expansion is underway at the Steamboat ski area; when complete, Steamboat will be the second larget ski resort in Colorado!  


Steamboat Springs is located approximately 160 miles northwest of Denver and 180 miles northeast of Grand Junction.  Steamboat is the county seat and largest community in northwest Colorado.  Yampa Valley Regional Airport provides excellent commercial air service to the area, connecting it with direct flights to 16 cities around the nation.  The area is low in elevation; it is just under 7,000 feet and when compared to other ski towns, acclimation is easy and the weather is mild.  

Brokers Comments

Old town Steamboat’s charming neighborhoods have long been sought after by year-round residents, second homeowners, and visitors alike.  Because most of Steamboat’s downtown area is built out, there is limited inventory for vacant lots.  The prime location near schools, trails, and downtown plus the ease of construction make this a very attractive parcel for a new construction project.
