Welcome to the incredible Scalp Butte Ranch located on the banks of the Mighty Missouri River just outside of Fairfax, South Dakota. The Scalp Butte Ranch consists of 1,570+/- Deeded Acres and over 3.5 miles of Missouri River frontage. The ranch boasts a beautiful newly constructed 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home, along with a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom guest cabin, large 40x60 heated shop, several ranch improvements, a diverse landscape and much more. LandIts unparalleled river frontage, multifaceted terrain and great location truly makes the Scalp Butte Ranch unique. The ranch borders over 1,000 acres of State Land, extending the property North and South down the banks over the Missouri River. The cottonwood and ash tree-lined river bottom provides exceptional protection and wildlife habitat, making for great recreational opportunities. In addition to 3.5 miles of river frontage, the Scalp Butte Ranch also has multiple year-round creeks, offering great water sources for livestock and wildlife. The ranch is fenced and cross fenced for rotational cattle grazing, along with an option for additional State Leased acres. The current owners have the ground leased for grazing and have been meticulous in not over grazing the pastures.
The careful cultivation, effort and commitment to building a true legacy property is easily seen in every aspect of the ranch. From its lush green pastures, well maintained ponds and creek bottoms, good road systems, diverse wildlife habitat and tremendous improvements, the Scalp Butte Ranch is truly one-of-a-kind.
ImprovementsThe main house on the ranch was built in 2018 and offers beautiful Soapstone and Carrera marble countertops, along with hand distressed maple wood floors throughout. No detail has been spared in this stunning 2 bedroom / 2 bathroom, 2,600 square-foot ranch style home. The kitchen boasts all high-end appliances and features spray foam insulation to keep it warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The house also has a propane back-up generator - giving the ranch owner piece of mind through the winter months.
The guest cabin situated just to the West of the main house offers 2 bedrooms and 2 newly remodeled bathrooms, along with a full kitchen and back patio overlooking the river.
The large, 40 60 heated shop offers a great space for equipment storage and work projects, and features thick 6 concrete, spray foam insulation throughout and a warm water well which provides additional heat.
RecreationPerhaps one of the greatest features of the ranch is its extraordinary hunting opportunities. Trophy Whitetail and Mule Deer call the ranch home and can be found in good numbers throughout the property, while turkey hunting on the ranch will rival that of any in the state of South Dakota. The ranch sits adjacent to the Scalp Creek Game Production Area which offers a boat ramp, fish cleaning station, camping spots and is just a short 3-minute drive from the house. The Walleye fishing on this stretch of the river is world-famous, yet with the amount of surface water - in part from Lake Francis Case - the fishing is not crowded.
The Scalp Butte Ranch is as unique as it is rare. From its incredible river frontage, great recreation, diverse land features and spectacular improvements, ranches of this size and caliber rarely become available. Come see for yourself.
