Outdoor lovers will appreciate the recreational opportunities this ranch provides. For avid hunters, this property is a paradise. To the northwest of the homesite is over 746 acres which is used as pasture by an area rancher. Not only does this acreage provide extra revenue but it gives the owner an opportunity to obtain a Land Owner Appreciation Tag for deer and elk. The area is known for its abundant wildlife such as deer, turkey, and a variety of waterfowl and historically has produced trophy animals every year. The acreage adjoins and is accessed through public BLM land.
The +/- 62.04-acre homesite consists of an elegant log home that lies in a picturesque setting between 2 private ponds. The front pond can be enjoyed from spring until August or early September when it typically dries up. It has mostly been used for irrigation purposes. The year-round back pond is fed by a seasonal spring and can be stocked with trout, providing you with a private fishing hole.
The 5,108 sq ft house is characterized by rustic details throughout such as custom lighting fixtures, exquisite woodwork, hardwood floors, and the log trim. It was designed to showcase the magnificent views of the mountains and the surrounding countryside.
The vertical architecture of the main living area is stunning, especially when witnessed from the great room. This relaxing space is flooded with natural light from its large picture windows that reach all the way to the vaulted ceiling. The focal point of the room is a large slate fireplace, which has a circulating air system to provide supplemental heat to the home. The great room also provides access to the deck that overlooks the peaceful back pond.
If you enjoy entertaining, the residence can accommodate large groups with its two eating spaces. One is a formal dining room located between the great room and kitchen which highlights a custom antler chandelier. The other informal dining area is more intimate with its wood burning fireplace and bay window. Addition seating is available for guests at the breakfast bar in the adjoining kitchen, which also features beautiful knotty pine cabinets, an island, and a built-in desk.
The main level master bedroom suite is tucked away in a private corner of the house. It features an open-rafter ceiling, a walk-in closet with additional hideaway storage above, and its own outside porch with a hot tub. The adjoining master bathroom highlights a jetted tub, dual vanity, two lavatories, and a separate shower. Also on the first floor, is a laundry room with a utility sink, half bathroom, and a pantry area.
A beautifully crafted log staircase leads to the upstairs loft which overlooks the great room. There you will find a wall of built-in bookcases and a reading nook, making it an excellent space for a library or office. This level also features several hideaway storage cubicles and a bedroom which can be accessed through the oversized double car garage.
In the basement, you will discover two guest bedrooms, the larger of which has a separate entrance to the back pond. There is also a sizable walk-in cold room which is used primarily for the hanging wild game and additional storage. It has a separate outside entry and hooks in the ceiling, making it a convenient and useful amenity for hunters.
The exterior of the home showcases a covered patio and approximately 1 acre of lawn which is landscaped with mature locust trees. Ranchers will appreciate the multiple outbuildings that will assist in their daily farm operations. These include the original milk barn used for storing equipment and tools, a pump house, an open 4 bay livestock shed, and a small building that hosts as a tack room with racks for saddles. Additionally, there is a 40ft x60ft heated metal shop with a workroom, roll up door, and half bathroom. The surrounding acreage consists of 3 income producing alfalfa fields which are dry farmed under an agreement with an area rancher.
