Land Description

Price Reduced.

Location, location, location. Situated just 12 miles east of Montrose and the MTJ airport, and exactly 1.5 hours from both Telluride and Crested Butte, the Gulch offers easy access to your home away from home. This turnkey western Colorado ranch has it all.

This amazing 1,760-Acre ranch borders over 800 acres of BLM ground. With elevations ranging from 7,100 feet at the home site to 9,000 feet at the top, you feel like you are hunting on a much larger property. It boasts multiple types of mule deer and elk habitat, from pinion juniper, large oak brush patches and big sagebrush flats to pine and aspen at the top elevation. A canal runs the entire width of the property and provides live water from spring through late fall. With the region's fantastic mule deer genetics, hunters have taken mule deer that score in the mid-190s B&C as well as elk and black bears annually.

The current owner has just completed miles of new roads and fencing, making this move-in ready property far more huntable. The improvements provide easy access to hunt the property from many different directions and access points.

The property's traditional 2,100 sq. foot. 3-bedroom, 2-bath all-log home with log trusses and hardwood floors was built to impress, offering natural warmth and comfort in a stress-free atmosphere. Tap into the home's picturesque mountain setting after skiing, hunting, golfing, hiking, fishing, boating or enjoying any of the other year-round outdoor recreation opportunities Colorado's Western Slope provides. The owner just completed a major renovation of the house including all new furniture, creating a space ready for enjoyment and entertaining.

Main floor focal points include a living room with a stone gas fireplace topped with a wall-mounted big-screen TV and a kitchen with granite countertops, granite breakfast bar, gas stove and high-end appliances. Off the kitchen is the dining room and a butler's pantry/coffee bar, laundry room, bathroom and two bedrooms situated away from the common areas for utmost privacy. The upstairs is designed as a private master suite with a large bedroom, bathroom, sitting area and private deck.

A breezeway complete with skylights connects the home to the matching log garage. The walkway and patio are marked by concrete squares laid in diamond shapes. A mud room at the back of the home opens to the concrete patio with an iron firepit, grill, hot tub and seating area including custom Adirondack chairs and rockers and a log picnic table and benches. Venture about 100 yards from the main home down a private driveway to a one-bedroom, one-bath upscale bunk house offering two bunk beds with a kitchenette featuring a gas stove, refrigerator and even a built-in desk. The bunkhouse is perfect for extra guests or your hunting buddies that won't be staying at the main house and could be an ideal Air B&B.

The ranch is set up for horse lovers, hunters or anyone who just enjoys a beautiful outdoor setting. Included is a 3,000-Sq. ft. barn/shop with a built-in loft hay loft or as a storage area adjoining large the horse corrals.

Enjoy the benefits of privacy while being so close to the beautiful town of Montrose, named one of Outdoor Life's Top 200 Towns for Outdoorsmen, offering incredible golf courses, museums and an amazing recreation center with ample shopping and dining options. The ranch is also only 8 miles from the famous Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park which known for its deep canyon and some of the best Gold Medal water in the state for trout fishing. The Blue Mesa Reservoir, Colorado's largest reservoir, is only 30 miles away and offers great trout and kokanee salmon fishing and holds the state lake trout record at over 50 pounds. Just 45 minutes away is the Ridgway Reservoir, which has great browns and some smallmouth bass. And for ski and snowboard enthusiasts, the ranch is centrally located with Telluride and Crested Butte both 1.5 hours away. Imagine hunting in the morning and being on the slopes that afternoon. If you love snowmobiling, the valleys and mountains of Montrose offer hundreds of miles of excellent snowmobile trails.

Imagine sitting in your hot tub right off the patio or grilling your fresh elk backstrap and soaking in the incredible views as you watch mule deer graze in the meadow. Come see this dream retreat and turnkey hunting ranch surrounded by nature and mountains as far as the eye can see.
