The Cold Smoke Ranch offers a very private, turnkey Hill Country ranch ready for the next steward to enjoy for hunting, wildlife viewing, star watching, hiking and other recreational pursuits! This ranch is accented by a custom home as well as a very nice managers home and a barn/shop. The ranch has both a high fenced pasture and a low fenced pasture. The high fenced pasture is managed for trophy white-tailed deer. Further enhancing the privacy of the ranch, several neighbors along the southern and eastern borders have restricted their lands and offer perpetual protection from extensive subdivision and development on those borders. Location: The ranch entrance is at the end of a well maintained easement road 2.85 miles east of FM 462. The turnoff on FM 462 is 7.9 driving miles from Tarpley and 18.3 driving miles from Hondo. The South Texas Regional Airport is located in Hondo. Also, the ranch is only 62 driving miles (1:10 hour drive time!) from San Antonio. Topography, Rangeland and Habitat: This scenic Hill Country ranch has approximately 300 feet of topographical relief with the highest point some 1,600 feet above sea level. The ranch benefits from 1.77 miles of the Twin Hollow wet weather creek and drainage plus 5 other unnamed drainages. While the ranch has plenty of topography, it is usable topography! The current owner has been strategically opening up areas of the ranch, creating edge and diversity benefitting wildlife. Typical of this part of the Hill Country, the habitat includes oak juniper woodlands with fantastic tree diversity including live oak, Spanish Oak, blue oak, cherry, cedar elms, walnut and Ashe juniper. Additionally, diverse brush species, succulents and native grasses also provide excellent habitat for wildlife. Wildlife and Hunting: The western 570+/- acres of the ranch are high fenced and are managed for trophy white-tailed deer. The owner took the native population down after his acquisition in 2014 and has been steadily developing the herd with periodic improved genetic releases, supplemental feeding, supplemental water and population management. The pasture is a movement qualified Class 1 Release site and the owner estimates the deer population in the high fence to be 75-80 animals at present. In the high fenced pasture there are 8 areas set up with a hunting blind, timed feeder and a protein feeder (and in most cases water). In addition to the white-tailed deer herd, the high fenced pasture is utilized or home to wild turkey, dove, feral hogs, a couple of Aoudad and other wildlife. The 380+/- acre low fence (note, the west and north perimeters are high fenced while the eastern and southern portions are low) pasture of the ranch is home to populations of white-tailed deer, turkey, dove, feral hogs, some additional free ranging exotics and other wildlife. This pasture has a couple of blinds and feeders as well. For the birders, this area is fantastic! Improvements: Situated overlooking Twin Hollow with protected views is the 4 bedroom, 4.5 bath custom home featuring an open floor plan kitchen/dining and living area with fireplace and custom interior rock work. The bedrooms are accessed via covered patios with 2 bedrooms on each side. Each bedroom has its own bath and HVAC unit for comfort. For entertaining and stargazing, there is a large patio off the back of the home with a fire pit; also perfect for morning coffee as the sun rises over the mountains. Views from the home are protected by virtue of the neighbors having placed conservation easements on their lands. A short distance away is the one bedroom (although currently used as an office a second room could be a bedroom as well) custom-built managers home and a nice equipment barn with shop and game cleaning area. In addition to the high fencing mentioned above (570+/- acres enclosed and two sides on 380+/- acres), there are good UTV roads throughout the ranch. On top of a high point on the ranch, the current owner has built a rock patio with a fire pit to enjoy sunsets with forever views of the surrounding countryside. Water: In addition to wet weather creek flows, the ranch has 3 operating water wells with one electric submersible (along with storage) servicing the improvements and a couple of troughs, a windmill providing water to several wildlife troughs and another submersible in the low fenced pasture used with a generator to fill a large pila that flows into a wildlife water feature. In addition, the owner maintains several other water stations throughout the high fenced pasture and there is one guzzler. History: In A.J. Sowells book from 1900, Early Settlers and Indian Fighters of Southwest Texas, which is a recommended read for anyone interested in first hand history of the broader area, he recounts the story of the Cow Camp Massacre that occurred near the Cold Smoke Ranch in 1866. Three boys were camping on a bluff over the Hondo Creek and gathering some stray livestock. An attack by a group of eight indians resulted in one death, one capture and one escapee, August Rothe. The Rothe family has deep roots in Medina County, dating back to their arrival in Castroville in 1854, and portions of the ranch were originally patented to Louis Rothe, August Rothes brother. Area Attractions: A quick drive from the ranch is the quaint community of Tarpley home to Mac and Ernies, known across Texas and beyond for serving up some of the finest gourmet cuisine to be foundon paper plates! A short distance to the south is Hondo, Texas, that has all the necessary supplies, groceries (including HEB) and restaurants, not to mention world famous dove hunting opportunities!

Overview: Walnut Creek Ranch is exclusively offered for sale for the first time in over 50 years! The 419+/- acre ranch resides just outside of Malakoff, in Henderson County which is one of the most desirable counties in Texas for DFW ranch owners. The ranch's namesake, Walnut Creek, serves as the Northern boundary of the ranch, running east to west for approximately 2.12 miles. The ranch's abundant water, lush pastures and mature hardwood forests provide the components that make for a great recreational and/or cattle ranch. The ranch is not only a prime example of a quintessential Post Oak Savannah region ranch, but it is a true combination ranch. Centrally located on the ranch, tucked away amongst towering hardwoods, is the main ranch home. The Satterwhite Log Cabin home was built in 2002 and is approximately ~5,129/sq. ft. The home is accessed by a gravel road that runs from the entrance up to the house for approximately 3,360' providing for optimal privacy. Location: Walnut Creek Ranch has exceptional proximity to the DFW Metroplex (Dallas, ~73.5 miles), Cedar Creek Lake (~4 miles), Athens (~12.5 miles) and Malakoff (~2.5 miles). The ranch is located off of FM 2636 on the East side of the road, just a short ~2.5 mile drive from Malakoff. Satterwhite Log Cabin - "Southern Comfort" Floor Plan: At the heart of the ranch resides the ~5,129/square foot Satterwhite Log Cabin home. Built in 2002, complete with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The Satterwhite floor plan is known as the "Southern Comfort", which has been the premier Satterwhite floorplan for many years. It complements the ranch perfectly and could make for an excellent primary residence and/or second home. The home is very spacious and is ideal for large families or family's hosting guests. They're two bedrooms and two bathrooms on each floor, with the master bedroom being located on the first floor. A new roof is in the process of being replaced (writing as of August 2021). A water well services the water to the log cabin and surrounding improvements. The house is accessed by a gravel road that runs from the entrance up to the house for approximately 3,360'. An attached 2-car garage is approximately 676/square feet. Additionally, there are two covered porches that are approximately 1,102/square feet and 766/square feet. A saltwater pool is just off the back porch offering a refuge from the Texas summer heat. During the colder months, the pool and hot tub can be heated to enjoy the pool throughout the year. Surface Water & Fisheries: A 2+/- acre pond is located near the western portion of the ranch. The pond is very deep and has good water clarity. It could easily be expanded upon to add to the size of it, with some manipulation of the spillway/water release pipes. In addition to the 2+/- acre pond, 4 other bodies of water, numerous wet weather drainages and Walnut Creek are present on Walnut Creek Ranch. A dynamic 10+/- acre lake site is located on the eastern portion of the ranch that is on an unnamed creek. See map for proposed lake site. Buyer is responsible for verifying the feasibility of any lake construction process and/or permitting. Wildlife & Hunting: Wildlife abounds at Walnut Creek Ranch. The ranch is somewhat of a wildlife sanctuary as it is not currently hunted by the owners, outside of an occasional feral hog thinning from time to time. Exceptional habitat, forage and water exist to support a healthy and thriving whitetail deer population. The ranch also resides in an area with bigger ranch owners which only helps add to that equation. Other wildlife consists of feral hogs, waterfowl, coyotes, and bobcats. Texas Parks and Wildlife and the National Wild Turkey Foundation teamed up to reintroduce the wild turkeys into a few different areas in Henderson and Anderson County. While it is still early on in the process, the results have been encouraging with numerous sightings being reported. Walnut Creek: Walnut Creek runs for approximately 2.12 miles and serves as the northern boundary line of the ranch. The sandy bottom creek provides a dependable water source to wildlife and livestock. The mature hardwood tree lined creek makes for exceptional wildlife habitat. Walnut Creek runs from east to west across the northern boundary, before meandering approximately 8 miles before emptying into Cedar Creek. Topography and Terrain: Walnut Creek Ranch has great rolling topography, with several wet weather creeks that cut through the numerous draws found on the ranch. The ranch has approximately 90' of elevation change, with the high point being 400' above sea level, down to the low point on Walnut Creek, being 310' above sea level. The ranch is located in the Post Oak Savannah Region of Texas and has beautiful hardwoods throughout the ranch and nice sandy loam soils. The ranch is made up of about 35% of pasture and 65% of hardwood timber. A portion of the ranch along Walnut Creek lies within the 100-year floodplain. The southern portion of the ranch has beautiful rolling topography with several draws created by the numerous creeks. The ranch is very well watered with Walnut Creek, a 2+/- acre pond, numerous stock tanks and the various other drainages. The ability to add additional water features along those drainages are certainly possible. The area receives approximately 42" of rain each year. Cattle: The ranch could conservatively support approximately 50 AUs. The perimeter fencing will hold cattle. The ranch could support a much higher head count with additional clearing and new cross fencing. Additional Structural Improvements: Small Cabin An approximately 800/square feet cabin of little to no value sits just east of the 2+/- acre pond. A second water well is located nearby. Horse Barn A ~1700/square foot horse barn with two rollup doors and two stalls sits just west of the log cabin home. It is currently being utilized as storage for the owners, however, it could easily be converted back into a horse barn and/or additional equipment space. Pool House Adjacent to the pool and log cabin home is a covered, open air Pool House. It is ~875/square feet and would make a great outdoor kitchen, hang out area, mother-in-law suite or smaller guest home. Pool Escape the heat in your own pool, complete with a rock slide and diving platform. The pool can be heated as well to enjoy the pool year-round. A hot tub is also connected to the pool as well. Two Pole Barns One covered pole barn is near the front entrance and front pasture. It is approximately 2,600/square feet. A second pole barn has not been completely finished out and lacks a roof and is located next to the horse barn.

Habitat: Bear Mans Bluff Ranch is place where multiple habitats converge; from longleaf pine forests, cypress filled bayous, and hardwood bottomlands.

Years of clearing and planting native trees and grasses and engineering the roads and water supplies around the ranch is truly unique and amazing. The surrounding properties are primarily large wooded tracts and no other structures are visible off of the property. Across the Neches river, the land is all part of thousands of acres of the Big Thicket National Preserve. A unique feature of this ranch is that during the winter, much of the property is surrounded by water among the cypress trees as it winds it way throughout the area. During the summer months, the water recedes and the understory becomes a beautiful grassland which is mowed and maintained. Approximately 180 acres of the ranch has had most of the understory removed to create a park like setting with large trees and good grasses. The northern half of the ranch has remained relatively untouched and is dominated by pines and thicker brush creating a privacy boundary and refuge for wildlife. Wildlife: White-tailed deer are abundant on the property and during the winter months, it is a haven for migrating ducks finding refuge amongst the flooded timber. Eagles and Ospreys are common in the area and a multitude of shore birds make their home here. Other wildlife includes hogs, predators, and many species of song birds. Improvements: The housing complex all includes top of the line appliances, custom furniture, high ceilings, AV systems that are the absolute best, flat screens televisions all over the improvements, HVAC system, and immaculate landscaping everywhere. All the attention to detail really has to be seen to be appreciated. The main lodge at Bear Man Bluff Ranch is a custom Western Heritage style lodge (approx. 6,000 S.F.), using large scale elements with expansive decks and cypress beams. The lodge is positioned on the bluff overlooking the river and forest. The great hall in the lodge is a combination of living room and dining room with towering ceilings and exposed beams and ducts creating a dramatic setting. The room includes a large custom dining table, large stone fireplace and unique wooden bar. Next to the great hall is a full kitchen with gas stove and island layout with fine granite table tops. Accessed from the outside are three spacious bedrooms with full baths that all lead out to outdoor porches. All the bedrooms are impeccably furnished and the bathrooms all have decorative sinks with fixtures. Note; the housing on the property did NOT flood during Harvey. Just next door to the main lodge is the similarly constructed two story Guest House (approx. 6,000 S.F.) . Upon entry downstairs is a spacious dining and living area connecting four downstair bedrooms each with their own full bath. A fully equipped kitchen includes all updated appliances and a breakfast bar. Just outside the living space is a covered porch which is the main entrance to the downstairs quarters. Upstairs is accessed by stairs on the outside of the building and includes two spacious bedrooms with full baths and is centered by a living area with a small kitchen. The grounds surrounding the two main structures is beautifully fenced and includes a 5,000 s.f. outdoor pavilion with a historic large fireplace (This restored fireplace was from an original structure that had been built on the property many years ago), built in grill, television and stereo system. A large dock overlooking the river has classic wooden furniture and a gas fire pit for romantic evenings on the water. There is also a two car garage with upstairs storage located just outside of the compound. Other improvements include; guest house/managers house separated from the main compound. full barn and shop with 200 amp service. skeet range with two Lincoln throwers on a tower. fenced in orchard with irrigation. three bay cedar constructed boat house. concrete boat ramp to the river and outdoor picnic pavilion overlooking the river. immaculate granite roads throughout the property.

The property also includes the requisite ranch toys such as golf carts, canoes, boats and other equipment to keep the entire family enjoying the great outdoors. Approximately 78 acres on the northern border is under a Conservation Easement for continued protection and privacy. Water: The property lies on the bank of the Neches River and a tributary known as Bear Man Lake. Running through the middle of the property is Little Black Creek forming the environment for the hundreds of large cypress trees on the property. The bridge running over the creek to access the lodge was engineered to create another lovely lake that contains catfish and crappie. A four acre trophy bass lake on the property includes a fishing dock, boat ramp and has been stocked with Coppernose Bluegill, Redear Sunfish and a mixture of pure strain Florida bass and F-1 hybrids. A 250’ deep water well provides all of the water for the irrigation and keeping the bass lake full. A smaller well is utilized for the homes. Electricity: Electric service is conveniently located on the property with many of the lines buried to retain the open feel of the ranch. History: Bear Mans Bluff is a known high point along the Neches River that was originally settled before the Civil War and was utilized as a harbor for trade with boats moving up and down the river. Steamboats would dock at the bluff to exchange fuel wood for various sundries and goods from traders who travelled the Old Spanish trail which crossed the river nearby. During the Civil War, the property was known to harbor mystery men who kept hidden but commonly left out bear meat for the steamboat captains who would leave bread, bacon and other staples. These men became known as the “bear men” and ultimately the area became Bear Mans Bluff. In the early 20th century, the property was used as a ferry point to cross the river and was a busy port until it was later moved further downstream. Afterwards it became a recreational property known for its high point off of the river and several old lodges were built for entertaining many guests.

The ranch is located between Sun Valley, Idaho and Jackson Hole, Wyoming, within easy reach of either community. Idaho Falls and its commercial airport lie less than two hours southeast of the property, while Salt Lake City is four hours to the south. Access to the property is from scenic Pass Creek Road, a seasonal gravel mountain road that links Mackay and the Big Lost Valley with the Little Lost Valley to the east. Originating in the 11,000-foot peaks of the Lost River Range, year-round Wet Creek meanders through the property for over a mile providing refuge for wild trout, including native bull trout, and other wildlife that take advantage of the stream’s lush bottomlands and riparian corridor. Wet Creek continues past the ranch on its way to the Little Lost River 15 miles downstream offering small stream trout fishing along its length and in its many associated beaver ponds.

The home is perched above Wet Creek in a secluded setting toward the west end the ranch and offers amazing views of the surrounding peaks.

Wildlife in this part of central Idaho is varied and abundant and includes elk, mule deer, mountain goat, moose, antelope, black bear, mountain lion, raptors, and upland game birds.

Perched in a secluded mountain bench overlooking the Eel River, sits one of Mendocino’s most spectacular private and self sufficient retreats - the Wind River Ranch. One approaches the Ranch through a river valley rich in pasture and fringed by towering stands of ancient firs. The road then ascends above the river floor as it winds through the forest to finally emerge at a manicured mountain meadow depositing you at the heart of the Ranch. The centerpiece of the Wind River Ranch is the Lodge - a sprawling 5500 Sq. Ft. cedar masterpiece that leaves nothing to imagination down. The Lodge epitomizes the perfect union between restrained elegance and function. Walking into the Living Room with its towering vaulted ceilings and its immense three cornered fireplace is reminiscent of entering a chalet in the Alps. The level of craftsmanship resonates throughout the Lodge. The chef’s kitchen is designed to accommodate the crowds the Ranch attracts while the three en suite bedrooms, impresses yet do not overwhelm their surroundings.  Opening the Lodge’s rear door one is met by the sight of a garden oasis with the sound of falling water and a Pavilion replete with an outdoor kitchen, fire pit, and an entertainment area complete with theater. It’s not hard to imagine why the Pavilion has been the focal point of gatherings in years past. On the far side of the Pavilion and opposite the Lodge sits the Game Room. Done in the same stylistic manner as the Lodge, the Game Room plays host to currents owner’s office as well as serves as an additional entertainment venue.  On a hill above the Lodge, but hidden from its view, is the Ranch’s Guest House. The Guest House was built anew using the timbers from the original homestead that was systematically dismantled and moved to this site and modernized to its new self. The Guest House exudes a rustic allure with its cedar interior, wood stove and cozy yet ample great room. From its spacious deck the house has commanding views to the west serving as the perfect perch to enjoy an evening sundowner as the sun sets on the Eel River Basin. Immediately behind the Guest House is the fenced vegetable and herb plot. Operations on the Ranch are supported by the Ranch Workshop and the Barn. Besides these buildings there are numerous outbuildings serving various purposes. On the far end of the Ranch is a professionally set up rifle range for the long distant marksman.  The Ranch encompasses approximately 121 acres of diverse topography ranging from the manicured grounds around the Lodge to beautiful mountain meadows to deep timber draws. There are miles of maintained roads and trails that meander throughout this well planned out retreat. Without a doubt the crown jewel of the Ranch is the Lookout above the Eel River with its jaw dropping views extending over this magnificent river in both directions. From the Lookout it is just a few minutes stroll down to the Ranch’s own private beach with its deep pools spiraling around giant rock outcroppings. Besides the Eel River there are a number of other water attributes including 2 ponds, numerous seasonal creeks and a multitude of springs. The Ranch is a literal wildlife sanctuary with Blacktail Deer, Black Bear, Wild Turkey, Wild Hog and numerous upland bird species occupying the land while Steelhead, Trout and Bass teem in the river and ponds. It’s hard to comprehend the Ranch without giving credence to the effort that has been invested to make this a truly a self sufficient enterprise though not wanting for comfort because of it. A reliable system of gravity fed spring water is stored and distributed throughout, while an updated solar system with an ample battery bank and a backup generator serves all the Ranch’s electrical demands. Wood sourced from the property provides the bulk of the heating demands.  The current owners have over the years maintained a vegetable and herb garden. There is certainly potential to greatly expand the food supply side of the equation.

Camera shots taken near the entrance to Snow Drift were selected to promote Colorado State University's on-line MBA program, featured in a pictorial display at Denver International Airport. Notwithstanding abundant options, Toyota, selected the top of Snow Drift on Dallas Divide to film a commercial when it debuted its Tacoma pick-up truck. Unsurpassed and unspoiled beauty abounds from this magnificent listing. Add this to the fact that the nearest full-time neighbor is miles away, guarantees that you can count on a gorgeous, pitch black night sky, free from any light pollution all year round. There are views of the Sneffels Range and Cimarron Ranges out every window in this over 250 foot long building complex. When touring the property It's as though you are flying in a helicopter taking a tour of the most beautiful place in North America. This beautiful home is easily accessible year round, as the driveway turns out onto HWY 62, yet far enough off the highway to offer total privacy, making it perfect for seclusion, family, friends, or company business. The home was built in three phases and is truly an engineering marvel! Built by one of the best engineers ever to graduate from MIT and Harvard, it surely couldn't be easily replicated. First of all the original home is built of hand hewn logs, and has the look and feel of an old world log home, accented with hand fabricated metal that adds both beauty and structure. The second and third phases of the home blend well and have modern amenities with high quality finishes. Overall, there are 4 plus bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and 2 full kitchens in the main house and additions, all of which offer individual privacy and uncommon comfort. There is a very large steam shower, and luxuriously finished handicap bathroom on the main level. There is even another luxurious steam shower off the current master bedroom. Offices are found at each wing of the home. There's a very large room on the top floor of the newest addition that would be great for large family gatherings, or could be used as a large conference room. There is also another conference room and library area on the main floor of this addition. It is directly adjacent to complete guest quarters located within the building, a sanctuary that offers a private living room, bathroom, steam room, wet bar, and bedroom with an astonishing view of Mount Sneffels right out of the south facing window. All of the interior is custom designed with the highest quality features. There are built-in wooden bookshelves, settings for multiple libraries and meeting areas. Bathroom and kitchen countertops are stone and granite. Kitchen sinks are copper, stainless and rugged polymer design, the latter in a private plant room off the master bedroom. Incredible views of the San Juans will greet you as you pot plants and flowers. Adjacent to the plant room is a remarkable sun room in which you can sit in your rocking chair, while reading a book in front of a custom moss rock wall at the west end of the room. There are three custom stone hearths in different rooms, including the master bedroom, the main guest room and one of the downstairs wood paneled offices. The main steam/shower room in the guest quarters can easily fit four people, with it's two shower heads and tiled seating and lounging area. This shower room is large enough for a wheelchair bound individual to wheel in and shower with room to spare. The closet space in this facility must be seen to be believed. All closets are lighted and the ones in the newest addition on the main floor take advantage of the nine foot ceilings to provide overhead storage for linens and/or blankets. There are hundreds of square feet of wooden decks and concrete patio areas. Four of the elevated decks face south with stunning views of the San Juan and Cimarron mountain ranges. The fifth elevated deck is special. It faces east toward the Cimarrons and offers the best view of one of the most highly photographed fences in North America as it meanders over a pastoral hillside toward Mt. Sneffels. This fence, on Ralph Lauren's Double RL Ranch is worthy of a scenic turnoff chosen by the Colorado Department of Highways, where motorists can stop to admire the view. The deck on the east end of Snow Drift is over a quarter of a mile away and over 200 feet higher than the highway and commands an unobstructed view of the classic scene. There is also a very large heated workshop, equipped with plumbing, satellite TV and 120/240 volt capacity that is connected to a two/three car heated garage with epoxy and urethane coated floors. Two remote controlled, commercial grade garage doors open this space to the concrete apron surrounding the entire building. The huge workshop, large enough for another vehicle, is separated from the main garages by an interior custom wooden garage door. Just to the east of the garage is a 38' X 19' X 17' high RV bay, protected by a remote controlled 16' X 14' commercial garage door. This space is large enough for a full sized RV and tall and wide enough to work on your RV, Bobcat or truck anytime you want, even in the middle of winter. If you need them, there are hot and cold water spigots everywhere, including four on the outside of the building. All of the interior walls in the garage and workshop areas are covered with exterior plywood over water resistant sheet rock, with numerous laminated studs to offer incredible engineering strength under all weather conditions. The whole home has four high efficiency HVAC forced hot air furnaces to control temperature in each part of the home, with a total of 14 computer controlled zones. There is a state of the art partitioned security system that can be armed or set off from anywhere in the house by remote control or three strategically located key pads. The third phase addition has a very large second floor office, including bathroom, shower, and kitchenette, that can be easily converted into a comfortable caretaker's quarters. Self sufficiency at it's best, there are also over a dozen 240 volt back up heaters, two hot water heaters (one propane and the other electric), along with two propane remote controlled luxury stoves and three wood burners to guarantee to keep you warm and cozy whatever the outside weather. If the grid goes down, there are two generators, a 6.5 KW Onan, and a 45 KW Generac that can run the entire complex; both fueled by 4000 gallons of propane, buried in four underground tanks. There are four solar panels that trickle charge 16 deep cycle batteries that make up the large 24 volt battery bank. The battery bank can also be trickle charged by the solar panels or fast charged by the generators or the grid. The entire home is always ON the grid with 400 amps of San Miguel Power electrical service; but it can go off the grid with the flip of a switch! Even more, the home has the infrastructure in place for a future solar hot water system that can be used to pre-heat the supply air for the two largest HVAC units. At dozens of locations throughout the homestead, there are back-up DC lights and AC plugs that operate off the central battery bank and inverter and can be used whether the house is on or off the grid. All HVAC units can bring in outside fresh air that can be filtered with HEPA or conventional filters - a great feature in the event of distant forest fires or other natural or man-made disasters. There is a great well and a 1500 gal cistern. Water has never been an issue on this property. You could probably live in this home for a year if stocked up properly, without ever leaving! It is perfect for anyone interested in maintaining comfort and security, whatever the outside world has to offer. This home has so many great features that it would take all day to explain everything. Breathtaking views, comfort and convenience in any event and accessible seclusion. It has everything! The overall property is made up of four separate lots (when including available additional acreage). The main Homestead is located on 32.5 acres. Three more additional lots are available (totaling an additional 106.35 acres) and two of them can be built on in the future, some may argue that the views from these lots are as good as or even better than the home site of the ranch. Unbelievably, lot 3 directly north of the homestead includes the very top of Dallas Divide, the site chosen in the past for filming a Toyota truck commercial. So if one wanted, they could develop this property in the future for at least two more residences with the available additional acreage (please inquire about this). The property is fully fenced and cross fenced. Currently the owners run about 10-15 cow/calf pairs annually on the available additional acreage. There's a nice deep stock pond that fills up with snow melt water each year located there, providing adequate water for cattle and wildlife located on lot 3. This pasture on top of Dallas Divide is wonderful land for summer/fall high country grazing. The high protein grasses found here give your cattle and elk excellent nutrition. Did I mention how good the elk hunting is?! Over the counter elk tags can be purchased annually. With the Double RL ranch across the highway allowing very limited elk hunting, the elk hunting on Snow Drift is unbelievably good! It's not uncommon to see many dozen elk every day from your living room window. The property is located in a prime elk and deer travel corridor between mountain ranges. The property hunts like a ranch that is much larger. Last but not least with zoning laws and building restrictions, homes in San Miguel County can currently never be built to break sky line. Except where "grandfathered in," this property does not break sky-line in San Miguel County; but being on a county line, its two story structure visible from Ouray County can never be duplicated in such an incredible location. Upon arriving at Snow Drift Ranch you realize quickly that the location of the home is perfect, facing two mountain ranges; with the San Juans, including the fourteener, Mt. Sneffels, right in your face, along with several other 13 thousand foot peaks. Directly east are the Cimarron Mountains with several other fourteeners to take your breath away. From the top of the property, a short hike up the hill, you can see two more mountain ranges; one to the north, the West Elk Range, near Black Canyon National Park, and another to the west, the LaSalle Mountains in Utah, sanctuary to Butch Cassidy, after he robbed his first bank in Telluride. If those were not enough, from this piece of heaven, you can add the 120 mile view of Grand Mesa west of Grand Junction; and to the southwest, you can also feast your eyes upon Lone Cone and Mt. Wilson near Telluride. This self-reliant home complex was built by one of the best engineers in the world today. It has all the luxury, convenient features of reliable on the grid living; with the reassurance that goes with back-up in the event of natural or man-made disasters. It is one of the best built homes in the Telluride area! Come find out for yourself! Showings are for qualified buyers only. Notice, coincidentally, the entrance to this property is under highway surveillance by CDOT at all times.CO-Brokers Welcome!
