Engwis Ranch Montana v Sweet Grass County v Big Timber

Many know of Montana for its rich history, diverse landscape with unencumbered vistas and breathtaking beauty. Those who live in Montana are truly privileged.

Vast wide-open spaces still echo the hoof beats of wild buffalo that once roamed this expansive terrain. Captain William Clark traversed this very ranch on his return trip in July of 1806, as documented by the Lewis & Clark Heritage Foundation—an element difficult to record in words, but felt by those who touch ancient rock outcroppings, venture into verdant meadows and follow the everpresent heartbeat of the roaring Yellowstone to a place where nature still reigns.

Restored by the current and previous owner, its natural beauty and diverse history have been preserved. Once four separate properties, this now contiguous parcel offers a stunning masterpiece of approximately three and a half miles of the famous Yellowstone River, rustic-style residences, modern livestock operations and lush riparian areas all surrounded by the Absaroka/Beartooth Mountain Range and the Crazy Mountains.

Wired for high-speed Internet and satellite television, the newly built home offers three levels with spacious living areas, towering ceilings and stunning details, including “In Montana, there are ranches and farms, and then there’s the Engwis Ranch,” said Tom Morse, founder of Legacy Properties West, LLC, who represents the seller of Engwis Ranch. “Its historical significance, as well as the productivity, recreation and conservation opportunities are unmatched. The diversity—the ranching, farming, wildlife, the outdoor activities, the facilities and homes—is incredible. The possibilities here are why people come to Montana.” Inspired by Montana’s rustic beauty, the three-story main residence offers a place to work and entertain amidst Western architecture with modern influences. The stained redwood exterior and a heavy cedar shake-shingle roof are partnered with a solar system that assists hot water. A popup sprinkler system is pond-fed for yard irrigation. Built for storing everything from farm equipment to classic cars, the fully equipped, first-floor, 6,000-square-foot workshop features six overhead bay doors, in-floor radiant heat, a storage loft, kitchen, full bath and access to the second-floor office and bedroom area.

This fully finished and insulated, 82 by 150-square-foot area features over 30 windows for plentiful natural light during the day; in the evening, overhead lights illuminate the entire arena so activities can continue uninterrupted. Across the property, the ranch manager’s compound is the center of livestock operations, offering a complete set of cattle working facilities: a calving barn with new warming house, pastures and corrals, garages, grain bins, a Quonset, an old bunkhouse and two houses (one is currently livable).

A preserved habitat for a variety of migratory waterfowl and native wildlife, the river bottom is a true sanctuary—a spring refuge where eagle guard their eggs in the trees and deer watch fawns take their first steps in the riverside meadows. This tranquil area offers an array of natural formations such as ponds, sandstone cliffs and waterfalls—a lush riparian area where duck, songbirds, hawk, blue heron, owl, wild turkey, pelican, whitetail and mule deer, black bear, beaver and the occasional moose thrive in a river-made paradise. Fueled by the majestic Yellowstone and prequalified for a valuable conservation easement, the Engwis Ranch features approximately three and a half miles of blue ribbon fishery, home to large cutthroat, brown and rainbow trout and a perfect venue for wading, drift boating and enjoying the scenery. From the river, the diverse landscape rises over 600 feet to the north and extends into the foothills of the Crazy Mountains—a simple scene that deceives the eye. The diverse beauty unfolds through the lush oases of spring water, aspen groves and pockets of cottonwood, juniper and pine. Among the many coulees, trophy antelope wander among the grazing cattle along the coulees and six spring-fed pastures.

“Riding across the upper rangeland makes me burst into songs from the Sound of Music, but only if I’m alone,” said Karen Engwis, coowner of Engwis Ranch. For those desiring an agricultural venture, Engwis Ranch comes complete with all the necessary well-maintained equipment used on the ranch. Water rights (priority dates from the late-1800s and early 1900s) include 22.83 shares of Hunters Hot Springs Canal Company (over a third of 62.95 total shares) and 7.6 shares of Duck Creek water. Six pivots, wheel-lines, popup sprinklers and flooding provide water to 600 tillable acres with a wealth of crop potential, including grass, alfalfa hay, grain crops and potatoes, all produced with limited use of nitrate fertilizers—a choice that respects the river and wildlife that depend on it for survival. Described as “absolutely irreplaceable” by prominent real estate professionals, Engwis Ranch is more than just a property; it is a prom-

ise to the environment and future generations to uphold the superior level of stewardship that has made this an exquisite ranch. Much of what makes this ranch so remarkable is rapidly disappearing in a world quick to develop first and conserve later. Those who share in the conservation philosophy and appreciate the exceptional maintenance rare in a recreational/ranch property will see Engwis Ranch for what it is: a last stand in “the last best place.” v

Engwis Ranch is offered at $17,500,000 to a qualified buyer. For more information on Engwis Ranch or to schedule a private tour, please contact Tom Morse, seller representative, with Legacy Properties West, LLC at 970 375-3211 (office), 970 769-8989 (cell) or tom@ranchandrecreational. com.

New Mexico v San Miguel County v Tucumcari

nly three or four times in every century does one of America’s genuinely iconic cattle ranches become available for purchase. The magnificent

and absolutely singular Bell Ranch—encompassing 290,100 deeded acres—is such a holding and may very well be the only opportunity to purchase nearly 300,000 acres of land in one stroke for the balance of this century. The Bell was granted to Pablo Montoya by Mexico in 1824—almost 656,000 acres of vast, colorful and productive grassland in the desirable northeastern quadrant of New Mexico. The Montoya Grant was confirmed by a specific Act of Congress in 1869. The Bell’s renowned single-iron brand was recorded in 1875. This enormous block of land has successfully supported healthy cattle herds for 186 years. In 1947, the ranch was split into six huge tracts. An adventurous Mrs. Harriet E. Keeney from Connecticut

There are very few left, and even fewer of this caliber—the 3,016-acre Little Jennie Ranch in Sublette County, a short drive south of the resort community of Jackson Hole, personifies true Western culture. Nestled in the foothills of the snowcapped Gros Ventre Mountain Range, the ranch is surrounded and protected by Teton National Forest and three magnificent mountain

ranges. The surreal 360-degree view of mountainous landscapes and wide-open spaces make one feel as though on the set of a classic Western movie. Add miles of quality trout fishing streams and vast rolling meadows punctuated by aspen and fir stands, and you have all the ingredients for the perfect Rocky Mountain ranch. A top-notch cattle operation since the 1950s, the ranch is blessed with highly productive land, excellent water rights and valuable grazing allotments. Built by Jack Kranenberg in the mid 1950s, a classic two-story, 4,000-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-bath log residence sits at the heart of the ranch headquarters. An additional 12 cabins/houses are scattered throughout the ranch. Together, the ranch and its surroundings are a vast outdoor playground with seemingly endless recreational opportunities. Miles and miles of Dell Creek and Jack Creek flow through the Little Jennie and each are fantastic fisheries for native cutthroat trout. A hunter’s paradise, herds of elk, moose, Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep and mule deer call the ranch and it’s surrounding forest home. The magnificent and immediately adjacent national forest boasts some of the region’s best terrain for snowmobiling in winter and provides limitless opportunities for hiking, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Within comfortable reach lie two ski resorts: the world-famous Jackson Hole Mountain Resort in Teton Village and the intimate White Pine Resort in Pinedale. www.littlejennieranch.com.

Nestled in the foothills of the Coastal Mountains, Atwood Ranch provides a perfect setting where broodmares and foals enjoy life on 2,500 acres of native grasslands in the oak-studded, rolling hills of Northern California. Captivating views of snowcapped Mount Shasta, Mount Lassen, the Sierras and the Sacramento Valley create the backdrop for this premier breeding and training facility. The ranch is fully committed to its principles of breeding, raising and nurturing the finest Quarter Horses, bred for competition in cutting, cattle working events and reining, as well as recreational performance. The ranch specializes in extensive young horse development and educational programs, including the Parelli Pre-School Training program, but is equally suited for a first-class performance horse training operation or large-scale breeding establishment. Central to the success of the ranch programs are its impressive quality facilities; the large, freestanding 140' by 250' barn includes many amenities for the trainer and breeder with large office space, breeding shed with stocks and vet lab, tack and wash bays and foaling and stallion stalls. In addition, a 120' by 100' clear span riding arena, a 200' round training arena, 24-stall training barn, hay barn and three hot walkers accommodate most every facet of horse development necessary to this highly effective and successful breeding and training facility. Ranch fields are divided into many pastures, some with hundreds of acres, some smaller. Others are set up for special use like weaning, geriatrics or rehabilitation. Top-quality fences are built with woven wire, using steel pipe for brace posts and gates. Water is pumped from a 2,500 gpm well and circulated to the barns and most fields by miles of buried pipeline. The largest fields have big reservoirs with year-round water. Some pasture is leased to cattle operations. For additional details and photos, visit VanCleveRanches.com.

Spectacular Private Live Water Hunting Preserve Covering Two Counties in the Texas Hill Country 4 Aces is a recreational paradise on the western boundary of prime Texas Hill Country. Salmon Peak and Boiling Mountain are the two highest peaks in Uvalde and Kinney Counties, are both fully located on the property and provide a challenging day of hiking. 4 Aces Ranch has a wide array of beautiful trees and South Texas brush, attracting native wildlife and providing good ground cover; at the same time, the owner has cleared close to 10,000 acres of cedar without disrupting the land’s integrity. Throughout the project, long-buried, old homesteads were uncovered, dinosaur tracks discovered and early American cave art found, and there is still more to be explored and unearthed in 50 Indian mounds and countless caves. Miles and miles of paved and improved roads facilitate an extensive range of access to many corners of the property, although the entire property has only been seen from the air in helicopter passes. The entire perimeter of the ranch is completely high-fenced with close to 50 miles of state-of-the-art game fence. The ranch is a beautifully parked, rugged sanctuary, and the owner, along with a wildlife biologist, has created a highly efficient wildlife

game park with high-quality habitat and well-managed native and exotic wildlife populations, including whitetail deer, axis, elk, scimitar-horned oryx, red sheep and red stag, eland, zebras, black buck, Catalina goats, aoudad, gemsbok, fallow deer, Corsican sheep and turkey. A multitude of outbuilding and support structures facilitate the full function of the property, including a massive hay barn, several large covered shops to house equipment and complete metal fabrications. 15± spring-fed water wells provide natural observation points and 30±-ton bulk protein feeders are appropriately placed throughout the property, with hunting blinds and strategically placed game towers. Roughly one mile from ranch headquarters, a three-bedroom hunting cabin is comfortably situated in a shady, live oak grove. The big, gracious back patio is set with a fire pit and rocking chairs, and the retreat provides a welcome midday respite or trophy camp for special guests. Don’t miss this incredible game ranch opportunity with an amazing price of only $3,250. Reduced to $2,850 per acre. Owner would consider selling northern 10,000 acres of ranch by itself. v For more information, contact Howard Hood of Hood Real Estate Company at 830 896-0510, hhood@ bizstx.rr.com or visit www.hoodranchsales.com.
