Rio Meadows Ranch presents a sustainable working ranch that includes a beautiful house, a variety of improvements, and profitable farmland on 139 irrigated and sub-irrigated acres! Featuring excellent reliable Miller Creek Water, spring and wells making this a lush green private paradise! Located less than 10 minutes from Meeker, the panoramic views of the Flattop Mountain Range and the Meeker Valley are remarkable! ImprovementsThe immaculate residence is a single floor, nicely remodeled ranch style house that provides a western lifestyle feel and consists of 5 beds and 3 baths that spans throughout the approximate  2,820 +/- square-foot living area! The interior presents a spacious open-floor plan with a kitchen that features hickory wood cabinetry and GE Energy Star Certified Cafe appliances and connects to the open dining area that leads to a large deck with a dining area and a built-in hot tub. From the deck, a walkway directs you to a lounging area with a fire pit that is situated in a beautiful yard that nearly wraps around the house and also features a small pond. In addition to the house, there are a variety of adjacent quality improvements such as a greenhouse, multiple storage/utility sheds, a barn, lean-tos, and several sets of corrals for livestock operations and hay storage. Furthermore, the ranch is sustained by 3 wells and a freshwater spring. Various trees encompass the house and surrounding improvements which positively influence the aesthetics of the ranch! RecreationOutside the perimeters of the Rio Meadows Ranch, an abundance of recreational activities are accessible within close proximity! The ranch is located 4 miles from public access to the White River which is known for its rafting experiences and famed fishery featuring various species of trout such as Brook, Brown, Rainbow, and Cutthroat. Additionally, Lake Avery, the Flats Tops Wilderness Area, the White River National Forest, and additional public lands spanning well over 1 million acres are all accessible within 30 minutes of the ranch! Meeker and the White River Valley are well known for their quality elk, deer, antelope, and turkey hunting. Meeker is also an OHV friendly town, meaning OHV travel is permitted on city streets and designated county roads which provides for easier access to endless trails that depart directly from town. To Increase recreational opportunities throughout Rio Blanco County, the county created the “Wagon Wheel Trail System” which features over 250 miles of trails that vary in difficulty, and 16 interconnecting loops in the White River National Forest. This trail system offers outdoor enthusiasts unforgettable OHV experiences while providing unforgettable views of the surrounding mountains and wildlife in Northwest Colorado. In other words, not many places have direct access to such recreations directly from their driveway like Rio Meadows Ranch does!   AgricultureAs a result of the 10 shares of water out of the Miller Creek Ditch used for a large pivot irrigated field behind the house, and smaller flood irrigated fields along both sides of the driveway to the house, the current owners typically receive 150 ton of hay annually after one cutting from approximately 70 +/- acres. However, there is potential for more as it is possible to get a second cutting, but the owners use it for pasture. The ranch is also perimeter fenced with additional fencing dispersed throughout the ranch that features distinctive pipe fences, as well as barbed wire fencing. LocationRio Meadows Ranch is located less than 10 minutes outside of Meeker which has a grocery store, several gas stations, OHV rentals, a hospital that provides some of the best patient experience in the Western Slope, and more! Rangely is located approximately 1 hour west of the property, and Rifle is slightly under 1 hour south of the property. For many additional amenities, activities, and annual attractions, Grand Junction is just over 1 hour and 30 minutes from the ranch. Though Meeker Airport is available for business and private flights, the closest airports that provide commercial flights are all within 1 hour and 30 minutes to 2 hours from the ranch. Those airports include the Grand Junction Regional Airport, Yampa Valley Regional Airport located in Hayden, CO and Eagle County Regional Airport which is in Gypsum, CO.   Proof of Buyers financial capability must be provided and approved before all showings.
