The southern portion of the historic Utterback ranch is only nine miles west of Steamboat Springs and is 421+/- acres. With year-round county road 50 access off of Hwy 40 the ranch is the perfect mix of qualities buyers look for in a mountain ranch – close proximity to a world-class ski resort, diverse and extensive topography, elevations from 6600’ to 7400’ consisting of 60+/- acres of dry-land hay meadows, aspen, fir, scrub oak forests, and riparian areas along the just under 1 mile of Tow Creek that traverses the property. Thanks to the diverse terrain, heavily wooded areas, and security that comes with larger acreages, there are significant wildlife and horse or livestock opportunity. Throughout the year, deer, elk, moose, bears, and mountain lions, eagles, hawks, and numerous bird and small animal species inhabit the ranch. Constructed in 2006, the improvements at Utterback Ranch consists of a modern ranch style 2600+/- sq/ft, three-bedroom, two- and one-half bath house with 2-car garage, 45’x60’ Morton equipment barn and 45’x60’ Morton hay storage barn and a historic log two story trapper and horse barn. Big game hunters will value the tremendous opportunities provided by the lower grass meadows for archery and black powder hunting seasons, and the vast areas of aspen and scrub oak forests are ideal for the fall rifle hunting seasons. The current Sellers are only the second owners in 116 years as the Utterback Ranch was homesteaded in 1906. When compared to other ranches, the level of stewardship is evident in the healthy grasslands, Aspen glades and forested acreages across the ranch. The acreage is unencumbered and presents a perfect opportunity for a family estate, further development, or the conservation-minded buyer to evaluate economic incentives of a conservation easement. The ranch boundary was completely fenced in 2015 with a big game friendly slick wire fence. The property includes adjudicated springs and two permitted wells. The ranch hasn’t been on the market since 1906.
