White Pine / Double Heart Ranch

$36,500,000 Gunnison, CO 11,300± Deeded Acres

Executive Summary

White Pine Double Heart Ranch combines virtually every quality that one looks for in a mountain ranch. On the recreational side, it has outstanding wildlife viewing and big game hunting as well as nearly five miles of near blue ribbon quality fishing on Tomichi Creek. It also adjoins the national forest and ties together thousands of acres of leased public land. From the point of view of location, it is 26 miles east of Gunnison which offers a dynamic small Colorado mountain town plus commercial air service. The ranch is also an hours’ drive to Crested Butte which is a world-class destination ski resort and only ten miles from the Monarch ski area. Contrary to many mountain retreats in Colorado, it has a viable livestock operation estimated at 800 animal units which operates on 11,300± deeded acres and approximately 45,000 acres of state, BLM and USFS grazing leases and permits. Its land base offers an appealing mix of lush irrigated meadows with early water rights in excess of 100 CFS that produce around 2,500± tons of hay per year on 2,500± irrigated acres. Sagebrush uplands transition to timbered mountain pastures and heavily timbered areas at the upper elevations of the ranch. Improvements include a large lodge complex that sleeps up to 26 and offers the potential for a viable commercial guest/hunting operation or corporate retreat. It can also simply function as a base for a family. In addition, White Pine Double Heart has three “owner quality” homes, five manager and staff houses and good quality ranch operating facilities. The ranch controls 250 square miles with associated outfitting and guiding permits. The ranch also participates in Colorado’s Parks and Wildlife Landowner Preference Program (LLP) and is currently allocated 19 deer and 19 antelope tags. White Pine Double Heart Ranch is a scenic ranch with broad meadows and both open and timbered pastures. The towering Tomichi Dome rises right out of the middle of the property. In summary, this is a fully improved operating mountain ranch in a great location with a full complement of scenic and recreational amenities.
