About this property

For the buyer who demands everything in a real estate investment, this farm/ranch is the qualified property. Cornering on County Roads 516 and 520, this rich farm ground has superior water rights for 45 acres of irrigation with a sophisticated gravity fed system in place, currently irrigating horse pastures and fields for grass hay and alfalfa production. Equine enthusiasts will value the fenced pastures, a four stall barn, separate loafing shed, hay storage and horse care facilities (even a wash area with hot and cold water). Is personal comfort and luxury a high priority? The 3 bedroom, 3 bath main house featuring a gourmet kitchen was carefully constructed by Mark Galbraith, a well respected local builder. It displays comfort and elegance and makes extensive use of views and passive and radiant heating. These photos replace a lengthy description of the home facilities, but only a personal tour can experience the charm and livability of this well built home. Outdoor enthusiasts will also appreciate the expansive decks, pond, glass doors, hot tub, aspens, evergreens, rolling lawns and beds of native flowers. Automatic, underground irrigation keep the house landscaping in shape for the season. Do you need room for extended family or several guests? There is a separate, very private 2 bedroom, 2 bath 1700 sq. ft. guesthouse with full kitchen, also built by Mark Gailbraith with his attention to detail. The location and exceptional privacy of the guesthouse allow it to double as a premium Airbnb or VRBO rental generating additional income when not in use by the homeowners personal guests. Three separate storage buildings complete the package allowing secure storage for equipment and toys and all of this is available at only a fraction of replacement cost.
