Situated within a functional compound, you'll find two ranch-style homes accompanied by several outbuildings. The main residence, spanning around 1600 square feet, is designed for practical living with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and spacious living areas including a large living room and family room. The remodeled home features a fireplace, woodstove, and easy-to-maintain laminate floors. The master bath is equipped with a tiled and glass walk-in shower, as well as a slipper-claw-foot tub, adding practical luxury to daily routines. Moving on to the second home, a guest-friendly space of approximately 1300 square feet with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a double car garage, this area is well-suited for accommodating guests or providing additional living space.  In essence, these homes are thoughtfully arranged to serve the practical needs of everyday life, offering functionality, convenience, and a straightforward layout that facilitates comfortable living.


Equipment for the ranch operations includes vehicles, a backhoe, mobile solar powered carts and platforms, sawmill, chippers, trailers and many other pieces of heavy-duty equipment, as well as metal and wood shop power equipment and hand tools.  All or some of the equipment is available for purchase separately.  List available upon request.


The ranch boasts a diverse array of structures catering to various functionalities. Enclosed within the compound are notable features such as a 3-bay equipment storage building sporting a durable metal roof, a food prep facility complete with a metal roof, a walk-in cooler, and conveniently adjacent cold and hot smokers. Additionally, the premises house a 2-bay storage building, a single carport, a double carport accompanied by storage space, a spacious woodshed, and a well-constructed large turkey and chicken coop.

Situated on the eastern side of the property is a substantial hay/animal barn, providing ample space for agricultural pursuits. Adding to the charm of the landscape is a 30-foot yurt featuring native blue pine tongue & groove flooring and a woodstove, complemented by a new log cabin and a 30' x 50' metal shop. The metal shop stands out with its concrete flooring and a generously sized 12' x 14' roll-up door, enhancing the functionality of the farm and catering to diverse operational needs.


Spanning the eastern mountainous expanse of the acreage, a network of natural springs graces the landscape. Among these, two springs have been strategically tapped into, serving as essential sources for both irrigation and potable water for the entire ranch. There are also several other springs that are natural and untapped. Beyond their role in sustaining the ranch's water needs, these springs contribute to the sub-irrigation of the meadow, ensuring the lush vitality of the vegetation. 

The integrity of the watershed is further fortified by the protective embrace of extensive neighboring tracts of timberland, safeguarding the natural flow and quality of the water resources. This symbiotic relationship between the springs and the surrounding timberland underscores the environmental resilience and resourcefulness inherent to the ranch's location.
