Welcome to the Meadows Ranch, a private rural ranch and custom home across two lots with abundant water in the ponds and springs, equine facilities, and a second homesite. Located in a pastoral valley of towering conifers and sweeping pastures, this legacy property enjoys serenity and self-sufficiency on 160 acres brimming with opportunity.
The ranch features a valley setting that offers privacy, large open spaces, densely timbered sections, and room for a new owner to leave their mark. The current owners created the property as it is today from scratch - three wells were installed and underground power was delivered from miles away. Springs on the south 80 were developed and currently deliver gravity fed drinking and irrigation water to the homesites as well as the barn and pastures. Generator hookups allow for a buyer to enjoy the amenities even in the event of a power outage.
Built in 1990, the custom country home is backed to towering conifers and overlooks the equine facilities amongst pastures below. Ornate tongue & groove vaulted ceilings provide an airy feeling within the open living space and windows on each wall bring the beauty of the property inside. A wood stove sits on a floor to ceiling hearth built with stones collected on the property and a large island with a gas cooktop opens the kitchen to the living space with room for bar stools along the island. The wraparound deck with slider opening from the living room makes for easy barbecuing and a great place to view the property to the North.
The master suite at the rear of the house also enjoys large floor to ceiling windows and a glass door to the deck - the western aspect of the room provides for subdued morning sun and striking sunsets. An ensuite bath is host to double vanity with makeup station, shower, and private toiletry. The separate exterior entrance into this bath offers a private mudroom when done with a day's work. A walk-in closet provides ample space with both hanging rods and built in shelving.
A second bedroom and full bath round out the main level. An attached garage with laundry has been used as an extra space for storage and also houses a small bunk room with warm design including wainscotting.
The ranch has raised many horses and is well appointed with a large barn, equipment shed, and turnouts ranging from paddocks off the barn to expansive sprawling pastures. The infrastructure is extensive in nature and well designed.
The barn is home to six stalls including a large foaling stall and each of the stalls turn out to paddocks and pastures that include rain sheds, hot wire, and gated corridors to navigate equine efficiently. Additionally, the barn includes a tack room, 20 ton hay shelter, bunk house with full-bath and kitchenette, as well as a workshop with 220V power. Other improvements include miles of fencing, hotwalker, chicken coop, garden area with fruit trees, and a large equipment shed for trailers, trucks, and tractors,
The south 80 is the location of multiple springs and a pond and perched in the middle of the valley is the second homesite. With a septic system, electrical service, and well onsite, this space is ready for construction of another custom home tucked in the woods. This setting is more densely covered in tree canopy with large swaths of flat space ready to be opened up. There has been some logging in this section in the last decade but timber still remains to be harvested.
