Welcome to Windy Hills Ranch, the next-door neighbor to the infamous Black Canyon National Park! Location can be everything when it comes to any form of real estate. However, with this 119-plusacre ranch location is just one of many features in this multifaceted property. The ranch is just east of Montrose, Colorado, up on the irrigated plateau known as Bostwick Park. This park's ecosystem is a perfect habitat for a multitude of wildlife that call it home, with the National Park acting as a preserve, limited public land, and a plateau of irrigated, productive pastures. Elk, deer, turkeys, bear, fox, bobcats - everything thrives in an abundance in and around the ranch. Within the ranch boundary is 72 irrigated acres under a new 120,000-dollar plus side-roll irrigation system. This lush, irrigated pasture is coupled with ample irrigation rights out of one of the best ditch companies in Western Colorado. The 72 acres from two cuttings produces 130 large square bales with 1,500-pound bales, producing 50/50 hay/alfalfa bales on first cutting and 60/40 alfalfa/hay bales on the second. The entire east boundary of the ranch is BLM land with hiking trails, UTV trails, hunting land covered in pinion and juniper pine. The ranch has its main home atop a hill in the trees with a commanding view of the park and the surrounding ranches. The ranch home has an attached 2 car garage, 5,337 square foot home that is 4 bed and 3 bath. Included in the price are multiple outbuildings with a 80 x 60 shop with 3 bays, concrete floors, woodworking shed and 220 volt service. Additionally, a 4,800 sq ft hay/ large equipment shed and cattle handling facilities with scales, headgate/squeeze, and loading chute. Located in Game-Management-Unit 64 that is over-the-counter for elk tags (2nd-3rd seasons). It is not uncommon to see 300 head of elk on the ranch along with a herd of mule deer and a flock of turkeys, all at the same time. For the hunter and/ or wildlife enthusiast this property will not only delight with its wildlife but with its stunning southern mountain views across the park right into the San Juan Mountains, and at your back the towering rock outcroppings of the Black Canyon. Quiet, private, and limited availability to this kind of location with year-round access off a maintained county road, this property will not last long! Come see your next Western Colorado legacy ranch that captures everything you want.
