It is our great honor to offer The Historic Kettle Ranch to the general market, for the first time since 1891. This magnificent 136-acre ranch features 1,800 feet of Dallas Creek frontage and over 117 arable acres. The expansive hay pastures, irrigated with shares from the Hosner-Rowell, John Kettle, and Dallas ditches, are still used to feed Ouray County beef--- just as they did 132 years ago. Historic barns, loafing sheds, and out-buildings, built with hand-hewn timbers, adorn the ranch's western portion. Here also lie two small lots, each with a historic home, that provide the rare opportunity to have a small acreage homesite within the conservatively partitioned valley zone. On all sides, the ranch is flanked by the stunning views endemic to the Ridgway area - Miller Mesa and the San Juans to the south, the Cimarrons to the east, Log Hill to the north and the rolling meadows of Pleasant Valley to the west. From its central location, the ranch is only 5 minutes from downtown Ridgway, and 35 miles from Telluride (site of Butch Cassidy's first bank robbery in 1889). The Historic Kettle Ranch boasts a big history, big views, and big opportunity - a true piece of Western Slope heritage.
