Perhaps the largest privately owned holding bordering the City of Steamboat Springs, this 1,000+/- unencumbered recreation ranch shares nearly 2 miles of boundary with federal public land. The ranch is only a couple of minutes from downtown but supremely private in its valley setting. The headquarters area, with easy access from the county road, is a comfortable 6,800 feet in elevation while the upper reaches of the ranch and the adjacent public land top out at over 8,000 feet. The ranch has plenty of covered storage, barns, sheds, and corrals plus 3 residences. It is fenced and cross-fenced for cattle with water rights that irrigate the hay meadows. A brand new luxury cabin is tucked in an aspen grove near the national forest boundary; with a wrap-around porch and custom finishes, it gives a new meaning to "hunting cabin." The adjacent public land is located in an area that is difficult to reach without private land access, this ranch will deliver as a premier big game hunting ranch with the added bonus of being so close to town. Listed under $21,500/acre, this ranch represents a very good value: An unimproved ranch that corners sold in the fall of 2021 for $31,500/acre; a nearby encumbered ranch sold for $24,500/acre in the spring of 2021, and another close parcel slated for development sold in 2021 for over $44,000/acre. With the new developments underway at the Steamboat ski resort and the growth Colorado is experiencing, this ranch presents the buyer with a unique opportunity to own a very private ranch on the edge of one of the country's most desirable resort towns.
