L Quarter Circle

$7,750,000 Gypsum, CO 462± Deeded Acres

Executive Summary

Every once in a while, that perfect “gentleman’s” ranch comes to the market. Located in a tightly held valley, less than an hour from Vail and Beaver Creek, the landowner is putting their legacy holding on the market for the first time in over 50 years. The 462± acre, L Quarter Circle presents an extraordinary opportunity to acquire a true tailwater fishery, featuring both banks of Sweetwater Creek for approximately 5,640 feet of a high-grade brown trout fishery. Immediate access to thousands of acres of public land, adjacent to BLM, and in turn adjacent to the White River National Forest. The Eagle/Vail Jet Center is located less than 35 minutes from the property, while Vail and Beaver Creek are just under an hour, and Aspen is just over an hour and a half’s drive away. Tucked away in a grove of aspen trees overlooking an expansive irrigated meadow and mainstem of Sweetwater Creek, the primary residence is private and secluded, offering just under 5,000 square feet. Charming, well built, and privately located, the home offers a modern farmhouse feel further complementing the property. A functional caretaker home, barn, and turn of the century cabin round out the balance of the improvements. The land is a combination of irrigated meadow, bottomland surrounding the river, and the balance graduates in elevation transitioning from oak-covered hillsides into higher elevation heavy timber. Easily accessible and incredibly well located, this style of property is in demand, hard to find, and not easily replicated.
