The ranch offers an ideal set of improvements to take advantage of its key attributes. The lodge works well for owner and guests and there is adequate staff housing for any essential employees. The outbuildings and facilities are well suited for the cattle and horse operation. They can be briefly described as follows:
LODGE: Situated in the headquarters compound, this expansive 4,600± square foot log residence is unique in that it includes two master suites and a separate “bunkhouse” area with its own 800± square foot recreation area and two bunk rooms, each with its own bathroom. The main part of the house includes the two master suites and a large great room with vaulted ceiling and river rock stone fireplace that is welcoming on a cool evening. There is also a dining room, wet bar, and huge kitchen set up to cook for a full house. It is well thought out for entertaining larger groups of friends or family and, at the same time, comfortable for an owner and his or her immediate family. The extensive covered porches give it that classic look of an old ranch house.
MANAGER’S HOUSE: Originally built in 1912, this shake sided house with steel roof has a real sense of place in the compound. It has been remodeled many times over the years and contains around 1,850 square feet. It has a master bedroom with bathroom plus a walk-in closet and two bedrooms which share a bathroom. There is a large living room, kitchen, breakfast nook, laundry room and mudroom on the main floor along with a utility room and pantry in the basement.
CARETAKER’S HOUSE: Located on a separate four-acre parcel just below where the main ranch begins, is a 1,925± square foot two story, two-bedroom, one-bathroom residence. It is an older home that would be well suited for a second employee or seasonal employee.
BARN/SHOP: This 80’X22’ multi-purpose building includes four stalls for horses, tack room, feed storage area, vet room, and shop with concrete floor.
SHOP: This 80’X50’ heated and insulated structure with steel roof is also a multi-purpose building that includes a workout room, ammunition reloading room, woodworking shop, and a mechanical shop. It has two roll up doors, one of which is 14’X14’ and the other is 12’X10’.
STORAGE SHED : This 24’X36’ structure with a concrete floor is open-faced and used for equipment storage.
CORRALS AND ARENA: The working corrals are steel and tie into the barn. They include a squeeze chute and incorporate a 5,000 pound beam scale for weighing livestock.
The working arena is set up for roping and working horses. It is 200 feet long and is built of pipe and sucker rod with an elevated viewing stand.
AIRPORT: The ranch has a 2,000 foot long grass strip that is well suited for small propeller driven aircraft. There is also a 1,200 square foot metal hangar with large sliding doors and concrete floor.
