Gateway Riverfront Ranch, +/- 42 acres, Gunnison County, Colorado
And a river runs through it!
Water, water, water! Positioned on the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River, approximately seven-tenths of a mile of your very own manicured trout water plus 2 miles of a Class A river out the front door for your family’s legacy river ranch enjoyment! 100% inholding within thousands of acres of BLM ensures total privacy, with vast acres of public land available for hiking and hunting trophy class mule deer, elk, bear, lion, turkey, grouse and small game.
Adding to your 100% BLM protected sportsman’s paradise just minutes away begins the additional 955,000 acres of the Uncompahgre National Forest with OTC elk tags for both archery and 2 rifle seasons, providing hundreds of miles of 4-wheeling, camping, hiking, hunting & fishing. In addition, senior water rights totaling 2.5 cfs from The Lake Fork and Trout Creek keep two well-stocked lakes free flowing year-round to round out your private fishing options for kids, grandkids and family guests.
This turn key recreational and fly fishing mecca is accented with an incredible custom home designed and built in 2010 to maximize this incredible riverfront property. You will not have to take a year or two out of your life to oversee building your dream riverfront home that you’ve envisioned your whole life. This 3,126 sq. ft. open floor plan retreat is the perfect size but not overbuilt. The first floor is complete with a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, custom-milled reclaimed Douglas fir wood floors, doors and cabinets, gourmet kitchen, master suite & bath, guest bedroom & bath and separate laundry room. The screened-in porch overlooks the river and includes another outside deck. Upstairs features another open living room with an additional bedroom, bath and private deck overlooking the river. Panoramic mountain and river views drove the placement of the numerous decks that abound.
And, for family and friends, nearby is a 2 bedroom/2 bath guest house overlooking the river with open living/dining floor plan with an incredible stone fireplace and a large deck cantilevered over the river. The guest house may offer some income with VRBO guest rentals, should that be desired.
One can look from Mexico to Canada and be hard pressed to find a comparable to the Gateway Riverfront Ranch. Originally the headquarters of the +/- 5000 acre Tommy Thompson Gateway Ranch and sold to the BLM in 1962, the family kept the original homestead headquarters, ponds and horse facilities which has become the incomparable Gateway Riverfront Ranch! The ranch is conveniently located +/- 40 miles to the Gunnison Airport and +/- 70 miles to the Montrose Regional Airport.
