This beautiful 490+ acre ranch situated along the banks of the Elk River is an eco-system of its own. Just 5 minutes to Steamboat Springs and conveniently located a short drive to the Yampa Valley Regional Airport. Careful consideration was put into the construction of the ranch providing a fabulous ranching compound. Numerous residences blend old and new allowing for multi-generations to have their own space to enjoy the western experience. The large enclosed multi-stall barn provides turnouts to the many corrals and includes a caretakers apt and an office. The 2 incredible garages are large enough to accommodate a motor home or a full sized tractor trailer. The irrigated meadows are perfect for grazing with abundant hay production. Significant water rights date back to 1888. The ranch is fenced for cattle and horses with several new loafing sheds. Abundant wildlife and an anglers paradise with professionally enhanced stretch of river to improve the fishing and river habitat.
