The ancient Roman architect and engineer, Vitruvius, postulated that a structure must have strength (firmitas), utility (utilitus), and beauty (venustas).

Vitruvius Properties is a mountain focused real estate firm that aligns with this principle through our unique structure of real estate services.

Vitruvius Properties exclusively represents Colorado Prospector Homes and secures the properties on which CPH develops, designs, and constructs. We select only special, stand alone properties that speak to what home should emerge from the forest. This alpine sensibility promotes health, sustainability, independence, contemplativeness, technology, and just enough ruggedness to be authentic.

Our portfolio of modern architecture on Alps Hill in Gilpin County, CO, is immediately inspired by Colorado's widely appreciated, gold belt vernacular. These homes are at the forefront of today's grid independent lifestyle that demands the latest in solar PV, lithium battery storage, and backup power technologies. All homes are sold, excluding at current the Delaware Mill.

A home is named after the gold mine lode claim or mill site on which it is built. Documentation on these historic properties (many worked before Colorado became a State) include 19th century hand written Patents and Field Notes and hand illustrated Plats archived at the United States Bureau of Land Management.

Vitruvius Properties is now pleased to represent Roworth Heights, a minor subdivision infill project currently under construction and located within the National Historic District of the City of Central, Colorado. We are excited to once again participate in bringing to market a rare and supremely unique lifestyle opportunity.

Additionally, Vitruvius Properties has brokered over the last 5 years the conveyance of 200 plus vacant land parcels throughout Gilpin and Clear Creek Counties, Colorado.

"I went to the woods because I wished to live front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived."
