$2,199,000 / 443 Acres / Available
This property has been in the family since 1891! What a unique piece of property!
This would make a stunning hunting packing destination with an abundance of big game and turkeys on the property. You will find elk, moose, bear and both white tail and mule deer to hunt. And it is â€œend of the roadâ€ quiet and secluded! Surrounding the ranch are four mountains: Black Hawk Mountain on the southwest, Island Mountain on the northwest, Silver Crown on the northeast, and Bodie Mountain on the southeast. From the higher elevations on the property one can see the snow-capped mountains of the Red Mountain ski resort in Canada! The Canadian border is only a few miles away to the north. The property was most recently farmed in meadow hay and then used for cattle grazing. Fences and natural terrain will handle about 50 +/- cow/calf pairs. Haying generally produces one generous cutting of about 2-3 tons per acre annually. According to the seller and recent cruise, there is approximately $660,000 worth of marketable timber on the property with the last selective harvest done about 20 years ago. This 1967-built home on the property is a raised rancher with three bedrooms, two bathrooms and an unfinished walk-out basement. Every room has a territorial view of some part of the ranch! The kitchen and living areas are all very generous in size. There is both a formal dining area and a breakfast area with a large farm kitchen. The fireplace in the living room is all-natural stone harvested and cut in the area. Unique to this home is the construction! The walls are solid with laminated 2/4's with no stud spacing in them. Windows on the living level have been upgraded to vinyl, while the basement has original aluminum framed windows. There is a natural artesian spring that provides water for the house, livestock and gardens. This spring flows directly out of the mountain into a pipe and cistern, then on to the homes. There is enough fall from the mouth of the spring (about 300 feet) to gravity flow with plenty of pressure to the home several hundred feet away. The barns are mostly original and show signs of vintage horse-drawn heritage! They are simple, but functional. The â€˜chicken house' was built to raise emus, but hasn't been used for several years. And if one chooses to make a hunting camp/resort on the property, there is a modern meat locker room that will hold 6-8 beef at any one time! here are trails that can take you up most areas of the property to the top of the mountains This property is a must see!
Dear Robert, I think you are one of the nicest people on the planet, and for sure the best realtor. Thank you for all your hard work, great advice, patience, and for sticking in there with me. You really went "above and beyond". The world is a better place with people like you in it and I feel really lucky to have crossed paths with you"

"We appreciated Tim's hard work. We had 2 different real estate companies prior to meeting you, over the time of a couple years they each brought us 1 prospective buyer. You in turn brought us numerous prospective buyers along with several offers, with a final close in under 2 years. We feel that you had a knowledge of where and how to market our business so it was marketed in the right places and to the right people. As you well know when the sale was finalized it was at our asking price with little or no haggling.
We appreciate the fact that you were available 7 days a week, and willing to show the business even on a Sunday with very little notice. Tim Thank you once again.

"We were referred to Jason a few years ago. We were looking for our dream rural property, however, competition was high and inventory was low. Jason found us a great starter home until the right property came along. He continued to keep looking for us; one day we received a phone call that he “thinks he found the one.” We drove out to that day, and we immediately knew Jason was right ~ This was the dream property we had been waiting for! Jason stayed on top of every detail, and we can't thank him enough for listening to all of our needs and wants and finding the perfect property for our family. His attention to detail, care for his customers, integrity, understanding of the market, and work ethic shined every step of the way!"
