This Wyoming Trophy Property is an exclusive opportunity to own an impressive furnished custom log home on 322 heavily timbered acres in the Snowy Range Mountains. This is the retreat of your dreams, living amongst majestic elk as your close neighbors, in a sanctuary with all that nature provides.
The Swedish cope construction uses massive hand hewn Englemann Spruce logs imported from Vancouver, British Columbia. The home boasts a sprawling 7800 finished sq ft that includes 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, oversized drive under two car garage, a full entertainment basement and a security vault. The loft has its own private deck and currently serves as additional bunk space but could be used as an office, den or private relaxing area. The spacious kitchen and dining offers granite tops, a large island with double ovens, and upgraded GE Monogram stainless appliances.
The architecture gives a generous open lodge feeling with soaring vaulted knotty pine ceilings, and a towering river rock fireplace that provides the perfect centerpiece for lounging and conversation. The open design and walls of windows allow for excellent natural lighting and magnificent distant views. The ash hardwood and custom tile floors have radiant heat that is fired from both a propane and electric boiler which keeps everything comfortable throughout the seasons. The huge walkout and wraparound deck leads to an enormous covered patio that offers endless opportunities for outdoor entertainment and large gatherings, all under cover of the cold style metal roof.
Surrounded by large private ranch’s and just North of the Medicine Bow National Forest, the Retreat currently qualifies for two Landowner Tags, with two more possible, and is located in the highly sought after and coveted Wyoming Elk Hunt Area 11. The Wick Wildlife Habitat Management Area is just a short bugle away and provides just under 20,000 acres of refuge to an estimated 600 Wyoming Wapiti.
There is an additional 160 acres of BLM land adjacent to the south border, and another 40 acres of Wyoming State Trust land adjacent to the north boundary, which provide even more trophy opportunities. The Medicine Bow River is an easy cast to the west with access for the Fly Fisherman and Anglers. The National Forest sits just an ATV or Snow Machine ride to the South with some of the best snow machine trails in the country, and the Snowy Range Ski Area is in Centennial for endless recreation.
A Piston Billy PB300 Snow Cat, Chevy Suburban with Mat Tracks, and two Honda ATVs will get you back in forth in no time at all, no matter what season of the year!
The small town of Elk Mountain is minutes to the North and the Hot Springs are a short drive back into the town of Saratoga.
An easy 2 hours gets you back into the hustle & bustle of the Colorado Front Range.
