Executive Summary

A well-recognized property in the Sun Valley area, the 176± acre Timmerman Ranch lies along State Highway 75 on the northwest side of Timmerman Hill 15 miles south of the airport in Hailey. The property is utilized as part of a local ranching operation and features 55± acres of sprinkler irrigated cropland and an additional four acres of irrigated land managed as a tree farm planted with conifers. A 55± acre dry pasture with a seasonal spring and stock pond is located west of the irrigated lands and used for seasonal grazing. The ranch also encompasses an older set of buildings that evolved from the original stage stop developed by John Timmerman in the late 19th century. Located in a grove of cottonwoods at the northeast corner of the property, structures include a 1984 manufactured home, two older frame homes, and several storage/shop buildings. The ranch offers excellent building locations with elevated views north across the Wood River Valley to Bald Mountain, Kelly Mountain, and the peaks of the Pioneer Range. Boating, waterskiing, and fishing are nearby on Magic Reservoir, and the area is home to a number of destination trout streams as well as excellent big game hunting for elk, mule deer, and antelope.
