5392 Nelson Road [Boulder Notable Sale]

5392 Nelson Road | $1.9M

35 acres of land and 63 shares of Left Hand Ditch, plus a custom mid-90’s sprawling ranch. The interior was yawn inducing and ready for a gut remodel, but the land and water rights alone were compelling. Adjacent open space to the south is owned by the City of Boulder. Expect to see the new owner invest significant post-acquisition capital remaking the bones of this structure into their dream home. 

Deal Notes: I wrote about this property when it first hit the market last April, noting that the listing information was incorrect. At first, the information on the MLS didn’t actually include the water rights. This could have been why it sat for four full months during one of the most active summer real estate markets in memory. At some point the listing was corrected but still, no takers. By the fall, the seller began cutting the price. Finally this January, a buyer successfully negotiated a contract with the seller. It closed last week for $1.9M, or $350K below the original list - a spectacular and rare acquisition.
