Yeah, front yards are cool, but have you ever considered having your own airport instead?

Details: The 226-acre Platte Valley Airpark in Fort Lupton, about 45 minutes northeast of Denver, and its two-bedroom house are up for sale for $4.1 million.

  • It's located at 7507 County Road 39, Fort Lupton, CO 80621.

Zoom in: The privately owned and operated mini-airport can store 78 aircraft and dates back to the 1960s, according to a release from LIV Sotheby's International Realty. It's currently owned by 13 shareholders who are aviators themselves.

  • The airport has FAA approval to be used as a recreational facility and includes a three-story observation tower, a 6,000-square-foot main hangar, and its own radio frequency so pilots can call in to land.
  • It has two runways, including a 4,100-foot asphalt airstrip.

Of note: Hangars can be leased out for aircraft storage, and the airport comes with mineral rights, essentially giving the owner the ability to obtain minerals on the property.
