Gore Range Ranch

$4,750,000 Kremmling, CO 516± Deeded Acres

Executive Summary

Highlighted by stunning mountain scenery and prime big game habitat, this 516± acre ranch is located within Grand River Ranch, providing exclusive access to outstanding fishing, equestrian and lodging amenities. It is well-located just 10 minutes from a real town with a jet strip, and within 60-90 minutes of seven different top Colorado ski resorts.

General Description

From its elevated position about 1,800 feet above the valley floor, Gore Range Ranch showcases outstanding river valley and mountain range views in every direction. Scenic panoramas include the upper Colorado River and lower Blue River basins and surrounding mountain ranges, including Rocky Mountain National Park and the Indian Peaks Range to the east, the Rabbit Ears Range to the north, and the Gore Range to the south and west. One of the most impressive views is of the highest peaks of the Gores, including Mt. Powell, the Eagles Nest Wilderness and the landmark “Sleeping Indian.” Just a mile south of the property, the Colorado River cuts through the Gore Range, creating a deep canyon. The upper cliff walls of Gore Canyon are visible from the property, adding another dramatic element to the superb views to the south.  

Gore Range Ranch features a mix of aspen and conifer forests, balanced by open areas which enable the incredible views. Elevations range from 8,600 feet to 9,500 feet. The land is generally oriented to the east and southeast. Gentle slopes are punctuated by ridges and drainages, including multiple small ponds and wallows. The terrain and scenery make it an excellent property for hiking or riding. Much of the uppermost elevations were logged to mitigate for the mountain pine beetle outbreak in the 2000s, and now support a healthy and diverse blend of trees.  

The mosaic of forested areas and open hillsides results in prime habitat for elk and mule deer. The ranch borders BLM land to the west, which subsequently borders and provides access to Routt National Forest as well as State Wildlife Area lands. According to Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s Hunting Atlas, the property is located in a summer range area for both elk and mule deer, and within a mule deer migration corridor. 

Broker's Comments

The natural beauty of the land and scenery at Gore Range Ranch is readily apparent. The hidden beauty is that, by nature of the accompanying amenities of Grand River Ranch, it can be fully complete and ready to enjoy immediately. On the one hand, it is a blank canvas for an owner with plans to build an extraordinary new home. At the same time, it is turnkey for an owner who does not want to build, and simply wants to enjoy the land and utilize the amenities of Grand River Ranch without the need to do any projects or upkeep. The property has surprisingly easy access to town, the airport, Denver and many of the top resort towns in Colorado. It would take significantly more money and time to replicate what is encompassed by this offering.

Location

Gore Range Ranch lies on the east flank of the Gore Mountain Range in western Grand County. This is the heart of Colorado ski country – 60 to 90 minutes from seven major ski resorts – Steamboat, Winter Park, Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Keystone and Copper Mountain. Kremmling, a ranching and recreation-oriented mountain town situated at the confluence of the Colorado and Blue Rivers, is less than 10 minutes away. With around 1,500 residents, Kremmling is supported by most services, including a grocery, hardware store, restaurants, gas stations and a hospital. The more developed areas of Summit County and I-70 are just under an hour from the property, and the Denver metropolitan area is less than two hours.  


An attractive characteristic of Gore Range Ranch is that it is located only 10 minutes from a jet strip. The 5,540-foot runway at the general aviation airport in Kremmling accommodates private jets up to Global Express in size. Commercial air travelers can utilize Denver International Airport (2.5 hours) or the Yampa Valley Regional Airport serving Steamboat, or the Eagle County Regional Airport serving Vail (both 1.5 hours).


The property is easily accessed from Kremmling and US Highway 40. The property is 7 miles from town on paved and gravel roads maintained throughout the year. An electric gate controls access to the private road (also maintained year-round), which climbs to the upper elevations of the property.  

Locale

Gore Range Ranch is located within Grand River Ranch, which is one of Colorado’s most attractive shared amenity ranch communities. At most such developments, an individual parcel owner can purchase a small acreage lot, on which they may construct a home. At Grand River Ranch, the parcels are ranches themselves, with several hundred to several thousand acres of totally private land apiece. There are a total of only 17 parcels spread over 19,000± acres. The development was completed in the early 2000s, and all the parcels have been owned by private individuals for years, if not decades. Nearly all the other parcel owners have already constructed structural improvements. They range from small homes to grand lodges, but all are tasteful and of the highest quality. The Grand River Ranch community has been particularly successful, due to its natural beauty, convenient location, attractive amenities and quality staff. Please refer to the Recreational Amenities section and Grand River Ranch Amenities map for more details.
