LAND: Perhaps one of the greatest features of ElkCreek Ranch is its unparalleled views and diverse landscape. A unique combination of lush mountain meadows, rolling hills, dense pine and aspen trees and seasonal springs make up the distinct landscape of this property. Owned by the same family for over 40 years, the land has been well-maintained with excellent grazing and hay production in place. The Elk Creeks flows across the Northeast corner of the property, offering great year-round water; while good perimeter fencing and various enclosed pastures make the ranch well-suited for a large number of livestock and horses. There are also numerous income-opportunities for a farm and/or grazing lease on the ranch, in addition to development or conservation easement potential.
WATER RIGHTS: Another great benefit of ElkCreek Ranch is its premier water rights. Water rights transferring with the sale of the ranch include: 3 wells and shares of the Green Water System which contain 2 active Springs on the property.
HOMES & OUTBUILDINGS: There are two historic homes built on the ranch. The main home is a beautiful 1,609 SF. ranch style house featuring 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, with a large living room area, great natural lighting, a small kitchen, pellet stove and gorgeous hardwood floors. The second residence, just adjacent to the main home, is a unique 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom house that was originally constructed in the early 1900s, and has been updated and improved throughout the years. This incredible 1, 519 SF. home boasts a large stone chimney fireplace with a grand wrought iron chandelier hanging above. The home also features a nice covered patio area, large kitchen and spacious loft overlooking the living room.
