Description for Nhn Running Elk Darby, MT 59829
This offer now includes cattle and equipment! The Running Elk Ranch is arguably the most beautiful ranch in the Bitterroot Valley. The gently sloping hills and draws of the ranch are blended with lush aspen groves, old growth and productive irrigated hay fields creating the idyllic western setting. As you look West your eyes are immediately drawn to the jagged peaks of the Bitteroot National Forest and the Selway Bitterroot Wilderness, literally a playground right out your back door providing millions of acres of some of the most wild and beautiful National Forest land to explore and enjoy. Just five minutes from the gate of the ranch flows the Bitterroot River, providing some of the finest angling for wild trout in the lower 48 states. Privacy and seclusion, is within minutes of good restaurants and boutique shopping. A 15 minute drive from the ranch will land you in the notoriously attractive town of Hamilton, full of fine restaurants, historic buildings and a variety of shops and galleries. Outstanding beauty, breathtaking views and functionality give this elite property incredible diversity. At approximately 150' above the valley floor, the 847 acre ranch is a blend of pristine meadows and mature forests that intertwine resulting in an ideal setting. Roughly half of the property is wooded sanctuary with the other half being productive hay ground utilizing the excellent and established water rights. Large areas of irrigated open grasslands cover the benches. A fabulous layout for raising stock provides a series of cross-fenced pastures that are extremely well irrigated and laced with ponds and seasonal streams. The pine and fir covered hillsides reach in excess of 4500' and gradually flow down providing riparian corridors and ponds for both irrigation and wildlife habitat. The timbered ridges lead to miles of adjacent back country. The Running Elk Ranch is surrounded by Bitterroot National Forest and private ranch lands that enhance the spectacular panoramic views of Shook Mountain, the Sapphire range and the rugged Como peaks. A portion of the ranch has been placed into a conservation easement designed to keep the property intact, but allowing for expansive improvements. With a log lodge, foreman's home and guest cabin already in place, the ranch is in operating form. The residences vary in age from a 2800+/- square foot 1900 Victorian with five bedrooms; to a 25 year old log lodge reminiscent of old Montana featuring more than 3000 square feet over two levels with massive rock fireplace and five bedrooms; and a one bedroom/one bathroom log guest cottage. There are also two apartments with kitchenettes associated with two of the garages. It is apparent from their excellent state that these improvements have been well maintained and cared for over the years. The combination of these existing homes creates varying opportunities for housing and or entertaining. The outbuildings are plentiful and practical. A total of nine structures include a horse barn, standard hay barns, numerous equipment and storage facilities, and garages. The drive through horse barn is exceptional with paver stone flooring, 12 spacious lighted stalls, tack room and skylights to let the natural light in, and is attached to an extensive corral system. Roadways about the premises are lined with miles of meticulous post and rail fencing. In field lean-to sheds provide shelter for stock. Power for improvements is underground and two propane generators are used for backup. The dream of large working ranch ownership in Montana's Bitterroot Valley is realized in this very unique offering. Seldom does the market get to see a property as diversified and special as this come available. The ability to run stock, yield agricultural product, and attain some of the best region-wide wildlife habitat culminate on the Running Elk Ranch. Combine these attributes with phenomenal views of the timbered Bitterroot Mountain Range, containing the rugged Como Peaks and the open beauty of the Sapphire Mountains........ ...certainly one of the best kept secrets in Montana is now out!
