Description

In size, scale, and quality this meticulously maintained Pine River Valley ranch is a rare opportunity for lovers of horses, cattle and wildlife. A veritable playground for children of all ages. The 100 acres contains 5 acres for the house, barns, a huge riding/roping arena and separate corral; 40 acres is cross fenced into separate mechanically irrigated hay meadows; 15 acres of interlinked mechanically irrigated pastures allow livestock to graze shaded by old growth pine trees without interfering with the hay meadows. Water rights for irrigation are more than sufficient even in dry years. The back 40 acres is rolling treed acreage interspersed with meadows and trails for riding, hiking and exploring. It is also habitat for deer, elk, wild turkeys and even a rare peacock. The 3,300 SF ranch house is shaded by a century old willow tree and old growth pine trees. A massive deck overlooks a large park like yard shaded by apple and maple trees. The deck and yard are a perfect entertainment venue with plenty of room for croquet, badminton, horse shoes and other family activities. The ground floor contains a greatroom, library, dining area with entertainment bar, kitchen and the master bedroom. Two guest suites are on the upper level. The main barn has a bunk room, 9 stalls, wash rack, tack room and a feed room. On the upper level there is a game room and a two-bedroom guest apartment. This property has the perfect mix of amenities on the right amount of acreage to make it very manageable while providing for maximum privacy and enjoyment.
