View to the east from deep in the nine acres, near its western border.  One could build here; a driveway is roughed in to the land's southwest corner.
The nine acres runs along the right hand side of the lily ponds and includes only a portion of the lily ponds. The ponds are mostly on Recreation District
land that runs for a mile almost to the north. Scroll down for maps and more views of the land.

9.3 acres west of Shadow Mountain Lake and bordering the southern reach of 500 acres of dog-friendly
Recreation District land. Perched on a somewhat level mesa with curious lily ponds and a variety of aspen,
pine and grasses. Ready to build on with a long driveway set and many trees removed.  $199,900
#480 Road 466 (Kokanee).  Shadow West 40 Lot: 4.  R181840

One has a view towards the Never Summer Mountains as one first pulls into a long and private driveway.

One could choose to build near here and perhaps build a gazebo at the far end.  Have your own private hiking, ATV, snowmobile trails
in this unique saddle of land with pools of water that attract and create diversity of species.
Scroll down to turn around and see the mountain view.

Views into Rocky Mountain National Park.  A portion of land to the right has been excavated for a new home that will appear as surely as a late fall mushroom.
If one were to build back from here a bit, one may have peek-a-boo views of Shadow Mountain Lake through the trees.
The lake view one may have in 2017 may not be the same as that for 2020.  Trees grow and their branches fill in all the space they can.

Scroll down for a wider map of the setting.  The photo at the top of this presentation if from the somewhat barren portion of the land at its west end.
The long driveway leads to an large place to build.  The next property over to the west has a home on it that one can see as shown below.
If one added onto the land the home, one could start enjoying the whole grand spread right away with all of the conveniences of a year-round home with an extra large garage.
Click here for a details about the home as seen below from the western edge of the nine acres.

Nearest home to the west as seen from near the western edge of the nine acres.
Consider buying the home and using it while new construction proceeds over several years on the nine acres.
Then sell the home to help pay for the new construction. It has 4 acres and excellent access from Road 46.

Scroll up for scenes from the 9 acres highlighted on the map. The Colorado River runs to the far left of the nine acres highlighted on the map.
The 500 Acres of Rec District land includes most of the large blocks above the shaded property. To the right is Grand Lake; Shadow Mountain Lake sits in the middle.
Beyond the map in each direction but south, the Continental Divide wraps around on three sides as a high ridge connecting peaks in Rocky Mountain National Park and Arapaho National Forest. 
This is what makes this region a world class watershed. Recreation District trails run all the way to the Colorado River beyond the map to the northwest.
Scroll down to see flowering lilies along the northern reaches of the 9 acres highlighted in blue.

The land runs along an edge of prime wildlife habitat with plenty of room to build away from the wettest parts.
