Castle Rock Ranch

$1,875,000 Sun Valley, ID 80± Deeded Acres

Executive Summary

The 80± acre Castle Rock Ranch is located in a stunning mountain setting approximately 25 road miles northeast of the resort community of Ketchum/Sun Valley over Trail Creek Pass. The East Fork of the Big Lost River, a beautiful, mid-sized freestone stream, flows through the property for over a half mile providing outstanding trout fishing throughout its length. Starhope and Wildhorse Creeks (two of the East Fork's principle tributaries) along with the North Fork of the Big Lost and the main stem Big Lost are only a short distance away from the property and offer additional high-quality, easily accessible fishing opportunities. A very tasteful 2,054± sq. ft., 4-bedroom log fishing cabin (which is being offered furnished) is perched above the East Fork and offers enchanting views of the river and the surrounding Pioneer Mountains. The Salmon-Challis National Forest borders the ranch on three sides and provides miles of hiking, horseback riding, big game hunting, and other backcountry recreation. Wildlife in the East Fork Valley includes elk, mule deer, moose, and antelope. There are very few deeded properties situated along the East Fork, and it is rare for a property of this calibre in this location to come onto the market. Castle Rock Ranch is also available in two smaller configurations: 60± acres with the home for $1,750,000 and 20± acres that are undeveloped for $449,000. Both parcels have frontage on the East Fork of the Big Lost and border national forest lands.
