The property originates on a beautiful, elevated escarpment with San Juan Mountain views, and gently rolls down to the lush valley hay fields below. It is located at the end of the road and borders 1,000 acres of the Billy Creek State Wildlife Area, which greatly expands the scope of available recreation and wildlife viewing opportunities. The property has a beautiful pond, fire pit, gardens, and fruit trees, and is tastefully landscaped with ease of ownership in mind.

Approximately 95 acres of the property are established in timothy, alfalfa, and clover that are irrigated with historic water rights that are delivered through an engineered gated pipe delivery system. The owner winters approximately 250 cow/calf pairs, several bulls, and around a dozen horses on the ranch. There are no covenants or conservation easements on the property, and future development potential is very good.


The 3,248 square foot main home boasts a beautiful open split floorplan all on one level. It features 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, chef’s kitchen, bonus room, loft, and a fantastic open entertainment area with a fireplace and a full wet bar. The 900 square foot guest home features 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, full kitchen, and a living room. There is also a vintage tiny home on the property which would be great for additional guests or staff.

Other improvements include a 2,000 square foot oversized garage/RV storage with workshop, 30’ x 96’ three-sided barn with a heated tack/vet room, loafing sheds, hay stackyard, round pen, and very well done cattle handling facilities. The property is perimeter and cross-fenced, and boasts a 150’ x 230’ outdoor roping arena, complete with first-class calf roping facilities and a vintage grain bin gathering area!


The ranch is located in the Uncompahgre River Valley on the Western Slope of Colorado between Montrose and Telluride at an elevation of 6,300 feet. This area offers a true four-season climate with mild temperatures and 300+ days per year of sunshine. The town of Montrose is only 10 minutes away and offers great commercial air service, health care, shopping, and dining, and is just down the road from the Black Canyon National Park. The town of Ouray, with its renowned hot springs, hiking, and ice climbing is about 30 minutes away.
