This family property has operated as a working ranch for many years with livestock and hay production, but could easily be used as a recreational or retirement ranch, horse ranch, hunting ranch or a combination of uses. The ranch headquarters consists of a older ranch home and typical working facilities used in the operation of the ranch. The home includes 3 bedrooms and one bathroom and sits among the shade of the enormous cottonwood trees that line the river. Upgrades could be made to accommodate the buyer’s needs for ranch and residential use, guest home, or an on-site ranch manager. The ranch also includes numerous outbuildings used for cattle and hay production. There is a 50′ x 100′ steel frame building used as a workshop and to store equipment. In addition there are several hay barns, sheds, grain bins, paddocks, corrals and working chutes. There is also a classic antique barn that has unique restoration possibilities. The ranch boasts over 1.5 miles of Cucharas River frontage and bottom lands with abundant hunting and recreational opportunities.
