A Western Colorado paradise, this 300+ acre updated and fully-operational historic ranch strikes a rare balance between remote privacy and the amenities of nearby Montrose. A mere 16 miles from the conveniences of town, this fully irrigated and highly versatile 320 acre estate enjoys ample water rights, a historically sited ranch home, multiple outbuildings, horse stalls, fenced pastures and rolling hills within a private 16 square-mile valley – completely void of development or neighbors. Nestled in the foothills of the Cimarron Mountains, and directly South of the base of the South rim of the Black Canyon sits a charming 3-bedroom home with a rustic, mountain aesthetic, yet all the modern comforts of home.
Revel in an abundance of diverse wildlife right out the back door, as deer, elk, turkeys and more traverse between the property and the neighboring vacant parcels, including adjacent BLM land and a 1200 acre conservation easement. While the terrain is ideal for livestock and equestrian lifestyles, this property also represents an outdoorperson’s oasis. On-site and nearby hunting opportunities abound, while the Gunnison River as it flows through both Black Canyon National Park and the Gunnison Gorge offers some of the finest fly fishing in the lower 48. Additionally, Blue Mesa, Crystal, and Morrow Point Reservoirs represent world-class still-water fishing and boating right out the front door.”
