PRICE REDUCED! Red Canyon Ranch is that iconic Western Colorado ranch inspiring those who dream of lush green irrigated pastures towered by pinon pine and pierced by rock outcroppings of large canyon walls. Upon arrival, you have the feeling you are in big buck country, and that feeling is right on. The ranch is located just south of the county line between Montrose and Delta counties. Adjacent to tens of thousands of acres of BLM land, the ranch is the destination of herds of elk and deer making their way through multiple drainages that converge in the Son-of-a-Gun Gulch that opens in the middle of the ranch. A string of productive 177 irrigated acres all under sprinklers snake through the canyon for 3 miles! With power through the ranch even atop Flat Iron Mesa, the ranch is well equipped with utilities and roads to make this a full-time home or a great escape into the heart of Western Colorado. The ranch is fitted with the ranch foreman’s house (currently occupied), a historic turn of the century log home(remodeled in the 1940’s), multiple outbuildings, silos, and cattle handling facilities. All of this would not be possible without water – the ranch has a healthy amount of deeded water rights with 8,000 shares Fruit Land Mesa water rights, 2 non-restricted wells combined with a little over 1cfs, 3 domestic and stock water wells, two of which are under solar pumps with concrete tanks and one piped the length of property feeding 6 stock tanks. Along with 2 Cathedral Taps and 5 Fruitland Mesa Taps, a 14 center-pivot system is gravity-fed maintaining 80PSI + utilizing 4 pressure reducers from top to bottom, as well as 11 side rolls and 25 permanent big guns with individual valves. The ranch is very secluded in its own valley at the end of a private road and behind a locked gate. This 800-plus acre ranch captures the big mountain views of the West Elks, the private and secluded valley with year-round access, production ground under sprinklers, a charming farmhouse, trees and canyons, bordering public land – and for the hunter or wildlife enthusiast, hundreds of elk and big bucks that make this ranch home in late fall. The Red Canyon Ranch is one to see!
