Kettle Creek Ranch is a historic 150 acre ranch located just South of Ridgway in the Uncompahgre Valley. Over 1/2 mile of the Uncompahgre River serves as the eastern boundary of the ranch. Senior water rights, springs, and year round creeks provide for an abundance of hay, pasture, as well as livestock water. An eight-tower pivot system supports irrigation of approximately 80 acres with the remainder approximately 50 acres being flood or sub-irrigated. With proper fertilization and irrigation practices the ranch can support as many as 100 head of cattle (assuming a summer high country lease is in place)with its 250 ton hay production. Game fencing protects the hay crop in two large hay yards complete with covered roofs.The ranch has welded pipe corrals including a bull pen, livestock chute, calving facilities, milking barn, loafing sheds, tack house and feed shed which all have electricity. The setup is complimented by a semi loading dock as well as a trailer access. The 1560 sq ft log home was milled on Loghill by the previous owner's family in the 1940's and consists of a master bedroom and bathroom upstairs, and a second bedroom and bathroom downstairs. The original hardwood floors downstairs tell a story all their own. The home was assembled with the logs in the vertical position which makes for unique character of the interior walls. The partially finished walk out basement serves as room for a pantry, washer and dryer and two bonus rooms.Overlooking the entire ranch and valley, a large deck also offers fabulous views of Mt Abrams. Adjacent to the home is an oversize 3 truck garage with carport, and a mini concrete basketball court. The 1000 sq ft shop has a concrete floor, shelves and a wood burning stove that is attached to another 1000 sq ft machinery shed. Elk, mule deer, black bear, eagles, and fox just to name a few frequent the ranch year round. Located in the Uncompahgre Valley 45 minutes from world class skiing in Telluride, 15 minutes from the relaxing hot spring pools of Ouray, the Switzerland of America, and ease of air travel and abundant shopping 30 minutes away in Montrose. The Ranch at Kettle Creek is being offered as an incredible opportunity to own one of Ouray County's historic ranches in the growth corridor of Ridgway.
