Teton Diablo Ranch

$16,000,000
Boulder, Wyoming

Teton Diablo is an excellent 350 plus AU operating ranch that runs on over 14,000 acres at the base of the Wind River Range, about 20 miles southeast of Pinedale near Boulder and its 8,000 foot jet capable airstrip. Its 4,600± deeded acres adjoin thousands of acres of State and BLM leased land that provide over eight miles of common boundary with the U.S. Forest Service. From its attractive remote hunting cabin, to the magnificent 6,200± sq. ft. owner’s residence, to the remodeled manager’s house and operating improvements, it is immaculate. Wildlife is extensive and this is a world-class hunting ranch. Good quality trout fishing in Silver Creek adds another dimension. This is a true end-of-the-road operating mountain ranch with every imaginable amenity and within an easy drive of Jackson.

Location: 

Located in Sublette County, 95 miles southeast of Jackson Hole, the Teton Diablo Ranch sits along the west slope of the famous Wind River Range and Bridger Wilderness Area, just outside the ranching town of Boulder, WY. The well-respected fishery of Silver Creek traverses the southern tip of the ranch for one mile, just upstream of its confluence with the East Fork River. The ranch entry gate lies just a quarter mile off paved County Road 353, and the magnificent residence sits on a bench overlooking Lovatt Creek and several beaver ponds.

The Sublette County Airport (Ralph Wenz Field- KPNA) handles most private aircraft on its 8,900’ x 100’ runway and is located just 10 miles to the west. Commercial airline service is available in Jackson which is serviced daily by Delta, United, American and SkyWest airlines.

Locale: 

The Teton Diablo Ranch is bordered on two sides by public lands and on the other two by large operating ranches. The owner’s residence and native hay meadows lie at 7,200 feet in the foothills of the western slope of the Wind River mountain range. With 48 summits higher than 12,500 feet and 19 of Wyoming’s 20 highest peaks, “The Winds” are one of the most rugged and acclaimed mountain ranges in the West. This is a true high mountain ranch, with upland sagebrush rangelands and low-lying native hay meadows. Rugged foothills rising to 8,400 feet dominate the eastern portion of the ranch. This mountainous area offers exceptional elk hunting from the convenience of a two-bedroom, well-built hunting cabin tucked into a south-facing hillside overlooking the upper reaches of Lovatt Creek. The ranch has sweeping views of the Green River Basin and the Sublette-Greenwood Cutoff to the Oregon Trail, the preferred route to Oregon and California for emigrants not needing to pass through Fort Bridger or Salt Lake City.

The cowboy town of Pinedale is 17 miles north of the ranch along a well-maintained state highway. Pinedale (population 2,000) has benefited from the rich mineral resources of the state with updated schools, an aquatic center and ice rink. With the tag line “all the civilization you need” this classic western town has hardware stores, grocery stores, banks and many restaurants, easily meeting a variety of basic town needs.

Jackson, an easy 95-mile drive from the ranch along scenic state highways, is a true world-class destination resort and the gateway to Teton National Park as well as the southern entrance to Yellowstone National Park. More commonly referred to as Jackson Hole, here you will find fine dining, five-star hotels, museums, art galleries, concerts, rodeos and recreational opportunities to rival anyplace in the west - not to mention one of the finest alpine ski mountains in the world. 

General Description: 

The Teton Diablo Ranch, located seven miles east of Boulder, WY, with easy year-round access from paved county roads, is tucked against the foothills of the Wind River Range and is almost completely surrounded by public lands, offering end-of-the-road privacy, superb elk hunting and a viable cow/calf operation. The ranch landscape is dominated by sage-covered rangelands and low-lying hay meadows, with rugged foothills and rocky outcroppings along the eastern boundary.  At the southern end of the ranch, below Lovatt Butte, is Silver Creek, a small but productive fishery whose confluence with the East Fork River is less than one mile downstream from the property. The owner’s home sits along the ranch’s eastern foothills overlooking several beaver ponds and productive hay meadows, providing sweeping views of the Green River Basin. For a high desert ranch, the Teton Diablo has an extraordinary amount of water resources. Three creeks traverse the ranch and provide irrigation for over 400 acres of native hay meadows. The waterways support a tremendous amount wildlife including elk, moose, deer, pronghorn, ducks, geese and sage grouse.

Acreage Breakdown: 
  • 4,638± acres of deeded land
  • 520± acres of Wyoming state lease
  • 9,277± acres of BLM lease
  • 14,435± acres total
Improvements: 

The owner’s residence sits on an elevated bench with commanding views across the irrigated hay meadows, beaver ponds and rangelands to the Green River drainage.The 6,200± sq. ft., 5-bedroom, 6½ bath home offers a Viking range and double ovens, two Sub-Zero refrigerators and freezer, double refrigerator drawers, two Bosch dishwashers, a sauna, theater room, wine cellar and an in-floor hydronic heating system. The custom office features hand-made cabinets and fine black walnut paneling. With multiple wood-burning fireplaces, covered porches, a bunk room and main-level master bedroom suite, the home is tastefully appointed with all the comforts one would expect in an exceptional mountain home.

Approximately one-and-one-half miles east of the main home, along Lovatt Creek and just outside the national forest boundary, is an absolutely exceptional two-bedroom rustic hunting cabin. This immaculate cabin, built in 2001, features a beautiful full rock fireplace, handsome great room, large windows and sleeping loft. This “off the grid” cabin has propane-powered heat, lighting, and cook stove.  It could well be the most luxurious hunting cabin in the West.

The operating portion of the ranch is headquartered along Lovatt Creek, well downstream of the hunting cabin and tucked into a small valley below the owner’s residence. The creek provides stock water for several paddocks and feeds two large ponds. The remodeled three-bedroom manager’s home sits adjacent to a 32’ x 65’ calving barn and a three-stall horse barn with an attached log cabin used for tack. A 2,400± sq. ft. heated shop with three large overhead doors provides ample storage and a comfortable place to work on equipment.

Climate: 

The Teton Diablo is a high desert ranch that receives just under 10 inches of rainfall each year. The growing season is short, but the daylight hours are long, with summer mornings averaging in the low-40s and daily highs in the upper-70s. With annual snowfall of 43 inches, and mid-winter high temperatures averaging below freezing, the ranch offers a full four seasons; with emerald green spring grass, bold fall colors and true mountain winters.

General Operations: 

While one of the greatest assets of the ranch is elk hunting, the operating component of the ranch is best suited for a cow/calf operation. Capable of running 200 mother cows and an additional 200 yearlings, the ranch is estimated to carry 350 animal units. The adjoining BLM grazing lands are exclusive to the Teton Diablo Ranch and provide out-the-gate access to summer grazing for the entire herd, without the requisite issues of a mixed herd allotment. 

Water Resources: 

The headwaters of Scab Creek and Lovatt Creek lay within the boundaries of Teton Diablo, as does a one-mile stretch of Silver Creek. Scab Creek begins in the northeast corner of the ranch, traverses the property from north to south, and becomes Spring Creek partway through the ranch, finally flowing into Silver Creek along the property’s southern border. Lovatt Creek begins just outside the ranch’s eastern boundary and flows due west into several scenic ponds before joining Spring Creek. Lovatt and Spring Creeks are primarily used for irrigation, while Silver Creek offers excellent fly-fishing opportunities for brook, rainbow and brown trout.

With priority dates as early as 1894, the ranch has 400± acres of irrigated native hay meadows. 

Wildlife Resources: 

The Teton Diablo Ranch offers superb hunting and wildlife-viewing opportunities. An estimated 75,000 elk populate the state of Wyoming, and a herd numbering in the hundreds routinely grazes on the ranch in early spring. Eleven elk winter-feeding grounds are located in Sublette County, one of which is just a few miles from the Teton Diablo. Mule deer are also very common on the ranch. The Red Desert-to-Hoback mule deer migration route traverses the area bringing hundreds, if not thousands, of mule deer through the region annually. Additionally, pronghorn live year around on the ranch and the foothills are known to support black bear and mountain lion. 

Taxes: 

Based upon past years, the real estate taxes assessments are estimated to be $12,740 per year. 

Mineral Rights: 

Sellers will convey 100% of the mineral rights that they own.

When you select a Real Estate Brokerage Firm, Broker or salesperson (all referred to as "Broker") to assist you in a real estate transaction, the Broker may do so in one of several capacities. In accordance with Wyoming's Brokerage Relationships Act, this notice discloses the types of working relationships that are available to you.

Seller's Agent. (Requires written agreement with Seller)

If a Seller signs a written listing agreement with a Broker and engages the Broker as a Seller's Agent, the broker represents the Seller. On properties listed with other brokerage companies, the Broker may work as an agent for the Seller if the Seller agrees to have the Broker work as a subagent. As an agent or subagent for the Seller, the Broker represents the Seller and owes the Seller a duty of utmost good faith, loyalty, and fidelity in addition to the obligations enumerated below for Intermediaries. Wyo. Stat. § 33-28-303(a). The Seller may be vicariously liable for the acts of the Seller's Agent or Seller's Subagent that are approved, directed or ratified by the Seller.

Customer. (No written agreement with Buyer or Seller)

A customer is a party to a real estate transaction who has established no intermediary or agency relationship with any Broker in that transaction. A Broker may work either as an agent for the Seller treating the Buyer as a customer or as an agent for the Buyer treating the Seller as a customer. Also when a Buyer or Seller is represented by another Broker, a Broker may work with the other Buyer or Seller as a customer, having no written agreement, agency or intermediary relationship with either party. A Broker working with a customer shall owe no duty of confidentiality to a customer. Any information shared with Broker may be shared with the other party to the transaction at customer's risk. The customer should not tell the broker any information which the customer does not want shared with the other party to the transaction. The Broker must treat the customer honestly and with fairness disclosing all material matters actually known by the Broker. The Broker owes the Customer the obligations enumerated below for Intermediaries which are marked with an asterisks. W.S. 33-28-310(a).

Buyer's Agent. (Requires written agreement with Buyer)

If a Buyer signs a written Buyer Agency Agreement with a Broker, the Broker will act as an agent for the Buyer. If so, the Broker represents the Buyer and owes the Buyer a duty of utmost good faith, loyalty and fidelity in addition to the obligations enumerated below for Intermediaries. The Buyer may be vicariously liable for the acts of the Buyer's Agent that are approved, directed or ratified by the Buyer. As a Buyer's Agent, Wyoming law requires the Broker to disclose to potential Sellers all adverse material facts, which may include material facts regarding the Buyer's financial ability to perform the terms of the transaction. Wyo. Stat. § 33-28-304(c). As a Buyer's Agent, Broker has duties to disclose to the Buyer certain information; therefore, the Seller should not tell Broker any information which the Seller does not want shared with the Buyer.

Intermediary. (Requires written agreement with Seller and/or Buyer)

The Intermediary relationship is a non-agency relationship which may be established between a Broker and a Seller and/or a Broker and a Buyer. A Seller may choose to engage a Broker as an Intermediary when listing a property. A Buyer may also choose to engage a Broker as an Intermediary. An Intermediary shall not act as an agent or advocate for any party and shall be limited to providing those services set forth below. Wyo. Stat.§ 33-28-305.

As an Intermediary (Non-Agent), Broker will not represent you or act as your agent. The parties to a transaction are not legally responsible for the actions of an Intermediary and an Intermediary does not owe the parties the duties of an agent, including the fiduciary duties of loyalty and fidelity. Broker will have the following obligations to you:

  • perform the terms of any written agreement made by the Intermediary with any party or parties to the transaction;
  • exercise reasonable skill and care; 
  • advise the parties to obtain expert advice as to material matters about which the Intermediary knows but the specifics of which are beyond the expertise of the Intermediary; 
  • present all offers and counteroffers in a timely manner; 
  • account promptly for all money and property Broker received; 
  • keep you fully informed regarding the transaction; 
  • obtain the written consent of the parties before assisting the Buyer and Seller in the same real estate transaction as an Intermediary to both parties to the transaction;
  • assist in complying with the terms and conditions of any contract and with the closing of the transaction;

  • disclose to the parties that an Intermediary owes no fiduciary duty either to Buyer or Seller, is not allowed to negotiate on behalf of the Buyer or Seller, and may be prohibited from disclosing information about the other party, which if known, could materially affect negotiations in the real estate transaction.
  • disclose Buyer's intent to occupy property as primary residency.

As Intermediary, Broker will disclose all information to each party, but will not disclose the following information without your informed consent:

  • that you may be willing to agree to a price different than the one offered;
  • the motivating factors for buying or selling the property;
  • that you will agree to financing terms other than those offered; or
  • any material information about you, unless disclosure is required by law or if lack of disclosure would constitute dishonest dealing or fraud.

Change From Agent to Intermediary -- In-House Transaction

If a Buyer who has signed a Buyer Agency Agreement with Broker wants to look at or submit an offer on property Broker has listed as an agent for the Seller, the Seller and the Buyer may consent in writing to allow Broker to change to an Intermediary (non-agency) relationship with both the Buyer and the Seller. Wyo. Stat. § 33-28-307.

An established relationship cannot be modified without the written consent of the Buyer or the Seller. The Buyer or Seller may, but are not required to, negotiate different commission fees as a condition to consenting to a change in relationship.

Designated Agent. (requires written designation by the brokerage firm and acknowledgement by the Buyer or Seller)

A designated agent means a licensee who is designated by a responsible broker to serve as an agent or intermediary for a Seller or Buyer in a real estate transaction. Wyo. Stat. § 33-28-301 (a)(x).

In order to facilitate a real estate transaction a Brokerage Firm may designate a licensee as your agent or intermediary. The Designated Agent will have the same duties to the Buyer and Seller as a Buyer's or Seller's Agent or Intermediary. The Broker or an appointed "transaction manager" will supervise the transaction and will not disclose to either party confidential information about the Buyer or Seller. The designation of agency may occur at the time the Buyer or Seller enters into an agency agreement with the Brokerage Firm or the designation of agency may occur later if an "in house" real estate transaction occurs. At that time, the Broker or "transaction manager" will immediately disclose to the Buyer and Seller that designated agency will occur.

Duties Owed by An Agent But Not Owed By An Intermediary.

When acting as the agent for one party (either buyer or seller), broker has fiduciary duties of utmost good faith, loyalty, and fidelity to that one party. A broker engaged as an intermediary does not represent the buyer or the seller and will not owe either party those fiduciary duties. However, the intermediary must exercise reasonable skill and care and must comply with Wyoming law. An intermediary is not an agent or advocate for either party. Seller and buyer shall not be liable for acts of an intermediary, so long as the intermediary complies with the requirements of Wyoming’s brokerage relationships act. Wyo. Stat. § 33-28-306(a)(iii).

This written disclosure and acknowledgment, by itself, shall not constitute a contract or agreement with the broker or his/her firm. Until the buyer or seller executes this disclosure and acknowledgment, no representation agreement shall be executed or valid. Wyo. Stat. § 33-28-306(b).

No matter which relationship is established, a real estate broker is not allowed to give legal advice. If you have questions about this notice or any document in a real estate transaction, consult legal counsel and other counsel before signing.

The amount or rate of a real estate commission for any brokerage relationship is not fixed by law. It is set by each Broker individually and may be negotiable between the Buyer or Seller and the Broker.
