Description

On January 22nd, 1920, the General Land Office issued Patent #729553 by the testimony and authority of President Woodrow Wilson. The recipient of said patent (deed) was William R. Kettle, the son of English immigrants John and Mary Kettle. The Kettle family had settled in Pleasant Valley (west of modern Ridgway) and established The Historic Kettle Ranch in 1891. Brothers William and Jess then went on to found two adjoining homesteads near the genesis of Dallas Creek's East Fork, roughly six miles south of their family's ranch. Now, 103 years after the ink had dried on William's patent, it is our honor to present the W.R. Homestead to the general market, for the first time. This beautiful property is bisected by a gentle ridge, which provides unobstructed views of Mount Sneffels, the Cimarrons, the West Elks, the Rugged Mountains, alongside the Grand Mesa and Miller Mesa. Because the homestead is only half a mile from the Mount Sneffels Wilderness Area (4.33 mi from the summit of Mount Sneffels), it provides one of the most commanding and spectacular vistas in all of Ouray County. Yet, despite its secluded locale, the W.R. Homestead has direct access to County Road 7 and is only a 25-minute drive from downtown Ridgway. Properties of this caliber rarely reach the open market, but when they do, it is a century-long wait! Call Eagle Land Brokerage, Western Colorado's Premier Real-Estate Professionals . 970.249.4300
