4245 N 119th Street, Lafayette, CO Gains Open Space

Wise Farm Preservation Creates Open Space

Information about our listing at 4245 N 119th Street in Lafayette, Colorado.

Over the past week, we’ve been following a story that has appeared in our local paper, the Daily Camera. Wise Farm, a 150 year-old farm was to be developed into more than 100 new homes. Our listing at 4245 N 119th Street backs up to this land (despite being in two different cities!). Erie recently put a halt to these plans–the town is poised to purchase 169 acres of the farm in a land preservation deal.

The $7.2 million deal will preserve the farmland as open space for years to come. The deal will also allow for officials to possibly add a trail or park in the coming years. This deal is the largest open space purchase in the history of the town.

The deal is a relief to neighboring property owners, including our listing off of N 119th Street, who have opposed the development plans.

Current owner Mat has always enjoyed the privacy of his backyard, “Our backyard is like an amazing park. Perfect to play with our son in.” This park-like setting will now be enjoyed by the future homeowners.

Privacy and views will carry on for years to come.
