The improvements on the King of Hearts Ranch are extensive, in good to excellent condition and totally appropriate for the current operation. They are briefly described as follows:
Completed about eight years ago by Yellowstone Traditions, this comfortable three-bedroom home measures just over 4,900 square feet including the attached three-car heated garage and the covered porch areas. The main living area is estimated to be around 3,500 square feet. There is a good-sized entrance hall that gives access to the large great room with a cozy fireplace anchoring a comfortable living room, dining room and expansive kitchen. A side door leads to a covered porch with an outdoor stone fireplace. Even though the house is nestled into the trees along the creek it still commands big views of the Bridger Mountains from the master bedroom and the living room. The master is good-sized with an enormous closet area, a yoga room, large bathroom with walk-in shower and a comfortable separated TV room. The other two bedrooms, one of which is used as an office, are expansive and comfortable with full bathrooms. There is a thoughtfully designed mud/laundry room that one enters off the garage. Landscaping is extremely attractive causing the home to be welcoming. This is a genuine ranch house with none of the soaring ceilings and two-story stone fireplaces that one has come to expect. However, it has all the features that one needs in a modern home.
Located a short walk and across the creek from the owner’s home, the guest house is a simple but very charming 1,300 square foot two bedroom house with a small kitchen, living room, dining room area and a bathroom for each bedroom. There is a detached two-car garage. This house features a lovely deck that overlooks a particularly appealing fishing hole on Flathead Creek.
Manager’s Hill House:
0n the road and overlooking the ranch with huge views of the Bridger Mountains, this one-story house with a full finished daylight basement includes a two-bedroom, one-bath apartment downstairs with a good-sized living room. There is also a one-car garage. The main floor upstairs has an extensive partially covered wrap around wooden deck. There is a large living room with fireplace, a dining area, and a kitchen with a sitting counter. There is also a master bedroom with bathroom and two additional bedrooms that share a bath. Electric heat and wood burning stoves provide heat. There is a large laundry room and office as well.
Assistant Manager’s Hill House:
Sited just around the corner from the manager’s house also above the road and overlooking the ranch with major big peak views, this smaller one-story home has a detached two-car garage. It was designed to be handicap accessible. An extensive patio dominates the front of the house. This is a more modern style home that features a kitchen, living room, dining room area and a hallway that services three-bedrooms with a three-way divided bathroom. There is also a half bath, recreation room, laundry room and office.
There is a fifth modest two-bedroom one-bath ranch home that is situated on the south end of the ranch and accessed by way of a private driveway. It is used seasonally for family and hired help. This was the second choice location for the owner’s home and the site is spectacular.
Located on Frazier Creek on the south end of the ranch and tucked into the trees, this one-room cabin is charmingly decorated and ideal for overnights, picnics, and as a hunting cabin.
Main Barn and Corrals:
This 100’ X 60’ foot steel building is truly multi-purpose. It offers stabling for the owners horses, a full tack room, a feed room, a heated vet complex and calving area, a one-bedroom apartment, and in the spring it is set up to tie into the corrals and is used for calving. The corrals are mostly steel portable panels or steel post and rail. They are set up to include a covered area with a hydraulic squeeze chute used for artificial insemination, embryo transplants and preg testing.
Roping Arena Equine Paddocks:
In the same area as the barn and corrals is a full outdoor roping arena. The ranch is fully set up for horse activities and offers some of the most beautiful riding trails to be found anywhere, both on the ranch and on the adjacent national forest. There is a series of grassy paddocks – many with loafing sheds - that surround the owner’s home and the barn area so the owner is able to have his or her horses close at hand in appealing post and rail enclosures.
This 30’ X 50’ steel building has a full concrete floor and has been utilized for wood working which is a hobby of the current owner. This structure could easily be converted to any number of other uses. It has two overhead doors, plenty of windows and is heated with a wood stove.
This 40’ X 60’ steel building has a full concrete floor, is heated and has a high overhead door ideal for working on ranch equipment.
