The Jones Farm is ideally located for residential development. And, it has been reported that the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad has purchased a substantial amount of land on the east side of I-76 for various types of development. In recent years the Brighton/Lochbuie area has been a hotbed for both residential and commercial development. The farm is located directly across I-76 (west side) from some of the land purchased by BNSF. Denver International Airport and downtown Denver are both within 30 minutes of the property. Brighton and the surrounding communities offer all of the necessary amenities.
The Jones Farm is located at approximately three miles east of the town of Lochbuie, Colorado. Hudson is approximately nine miles farther east of the farm.
