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 “end of the road” 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 ‘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!
