For those in the market, large mountain ranch properties – that are available for sale — are a rarity. Properties with more than 3,000 acres of land, in prime Colorado locations, are hard to find, and yet a 6,200 acre ranch has recently become available for sale in central Grand County. Williams Peak Ranch, priced at $41 million, is approximately half the cost per acre of other smaller Colorado ranch properties in other Colorado counties, while offering all that is expected of a trophy mountain property.
“The competition is fierce to find and acquire large Colorado ranch properties, especially as investors continue to realize the tangible and intangible value of owning a Colorado mountain property,” said Sonia Chritton of Fuller Sotheby’s International Realty, a specialist in the sale of ranch properties around the world. “The current and long term value of the land itself is hard to argue, and the truly ‘priceless’ aspects of owning a large Colorado ranch — in a gorgeous and incredibly private mountain setting — can’t be denied. There aren’t many ranches of this size available in Colorado, in fact the vast majority are under 2,800 acres, which is another reason why this is such a rare opportunity.”
Williams Peak Ranch has distinguished itself as the largest private landholding in central Grand County, and abuts thousands of acres of National Forest property. Located in the pristine Williams Fork Valley, the ranch is rich with water rights, awe inspiring mountain views, the very best hunting and fishing, pine and aspen forests, numerous ponds and lakes, grassy meadows and all of the sights, sounds and smells that make a mountain property so desirable.
While the ranch is highly secluded, it isn’t so remote that the owners and their guests can’t leave the ranch and enjoy some of Colorado’s popular destinations. Grand Lake and Winter Park are only 45 minutes away and Steamboat Springs, Breckenridge and Copper Mountain are also nearby. These world renown ski and summertime resorts provide the opportunity to experience all of the great things Colorado has to offer whenever a person wishes to venture off of Williams Peak Ranch. The property is also near Kremling Airport, which is rated for 727s, providing immediate access for private flights to the property.
The 6,000-plus acres of Williams Peak Ranch provide all of the hunting, fishing, horseback riding, snowmobiling and backcountry excursions the ranch’s owners and their guests could possibly hope for. The property includes five existing structures: a four-bedroom ranch style home, a furnished and renovated cabin, a five-bedroom cabin and another, newly renovated cabin. The property is also a working cattle ranch, which provides distinct and unique opportunities to the new owner.
