MTX Ranch

$5,150,000 Virginia City, MT 5,246± Deeded Acres

Executive Summary

MTX Ranch is a 7,357± acre (5,246± deeded) mountain landscape located between the Ruby and Madison Valleys in southwest Montana near the historic community of Virginia City. The ranch rises above the valley floor expanding southerly into the north end of the Gravelly Mountain Range and adjacent BLM lands. The ranch is vastly timbered interspersed by grassy meadows and bifurcated by flowing springs which ultimately collect and flow into the Ruby River. Historically, MTX Ranch has been utilized as a summer grazing operation inclusive of the deeded and BLM permits with ancillary recreational interests including big game hunting for deer, elk and bear. The lands have been professionally managed over the years and the quality in operations is apparent. Dozens of miles of two-track roads make the ranch fully accessible. Southwest Montana and the Ruby Valley, in particular, has become very appealing in the overall western ranch market. It is proximal to multiple small colorful communities, convenient from Bozeman and its commercial airfield and is unencumbered by conservation easement. Steeped in rich history, the area was settled during the gold rush era of the 1860s and remnants of that era are still apparent. Given the mountain terrain that encompasses the MTX Ranch, it has a feel of being substantially larger than it is and represents strong value in this desirable region of Montana.
