40 Acre Turn-Key Ranch with Main Home & Accessory Buildings.
So green it hurts your eyes. Thats how the current owner described this pristine ranch when he bought it years ago. Now, this meticulously designed turn-key ranch is primed and waiting for you with the chance to steward some of Idaho's most flourishing terrain.
Immerse yourself in the Gem States breathtaking landscape. This scenic homestead stretches across 40 acres of rolling pastureland with panoramic mountain views. Just a few miles away, Caribou Mountain towers in the background as the crown jewel of this masterpiece. In fact, you can traverse the well-maintain trails from the property up to the summit in any season via UTV or snowmobile.
Mature trees frame the homesite, providing privacy and shade. Outside the home, a lush backyard and garden oasis give way to the grasslands beyond. The well-maintained fenced pastureland has sustained 50 steers and 8 horses, with plenty of room to roam and graze.
Livestock aren't the only ones who love this mild climate and fertile land, hundreds of elk and established herds graze over the pasture year-round. Watch in awe as majestic sandhill cranes swoop low over the hills.
Ranch Features & Utilities
No matter your style of ranch or recreational living, this fully equipped homestead has you covered. The ranch comes installed with:
1,000-gallon propane tank (typically only needs an annual filling)
2 septic systems (one for the home, and one for barn and/or Rv)
Electricity wired separately for home and barn
Updated ~500-Foot water well for home (new electrical wire, well lining, and pvc piping in 2016)
Year-Round natural spring-fed livestock tanks
Direct spring-fed line to home with easy-access valve in basement (home has lines to both well and spring water)
Extra water spigots at the barn
At approximately 3,300 square feet, this custom-built home features 4 bedrooms and 1 full bathroom. The walls in the original 1950S home were stripped and sanded, replaced with fiberglass insulation, sheetrock, paint, wood paneling, and wallpaper.
Inside the home, a mudroom entry opens to a kitchen with island, breakfast nook, and pantry closet. The main living space features 2 oversized corner windows to showcase mountain views. A built-in stove provides added warmth during the winter months.
The primary bedroom features large windows and space for a desk, large dresser, or vanity area. Within the bedroom, a spacious bathroom invites you to enjoy the views and relax in the jetted soaking tub, large walk-in shower with tiled bench, and seated vanity.
The home includes downstairs workshop areas (or extra rooms) with an airtight stove and pegboard walls for storage and organization. The ample workspace can accommodate several desks, work benches, or tables.
The basement contains additional home furnaces and a discrete laundry area, plus extra pantry space and root cellar. The cellar is cool enough for canning, root vegetables, or a wine cellar, but it does not freeze so you can preserve goods year-round.
Upstairs, the spacious loft and bunk-room features open, versatile living space with high ceilings and a lighted nook with cabinets. The loft currently holds two full-sized log beds with room for several cozy seating areas. A separate office space features a built-in desk and custom-built cube shelves.
In the loft, large inset windows let in light and provide extra shelving space. The loft opens up to a wooden balcony with views of the rolling pastureland and mountains beyond.
Attached via covered walkway, you'll find a private, custom-built sauna. After a day of exploration or ranch work, relax in the multi-level, double lined, western cedar sauna. Dual-functioning wet/dry sauna and steam room.
Barn & Accessory Buildings
About 600 feet from the home, the property features several multipurpose accessory buildings. The metal barn built in 2012 is 42' x 48' with a 15 foot ceiling. There are removeable kennels. (The current owner trained livestock dogs & had a dog-sled team.) The high ceilings and open concept design make this space ideal for storing ranch equipment, hay and feed, utility vehicles, tractors & machinery, recreational sports equipment & supplies, and more. The barn has water, electricity, and septic access installed.
A second pre-existing storage and tack room has horse stalls and chain-rolled doors with well-preserved wood floors. Nearby, a brand-new, optimally designed shipping container provides additional airtight storage and protection. Added features include front and back double doors and end-to-end electricity with installed outlets. No holes were drilled in the container to keep it water-tight and pest-proof.
Additional feeding shelters, chicken coop/storage, gated pens, corals, and tying posts are strategically placed near the barn and tack room to provide shelter and protection in the winter months. Maintained gravel paths provide vehicle and trailer access. Typically, livestock only needs supplemented hay in winter and early spring.
Recreation & Hunting
Feel like a spontaneous adventure? Use the maintained trails to take a snowmobile or UTV to the top of Caribou Mountain and around the west-facing side to see the first gold mine in Idaho.
You can get to almost anywhere on ATV or snowmobile. This area is mapped with many groomed and maintained trails. You can access some of Idaho's natural hot springs and alpine ponds & rivers.
If you're an outdoor enthusiast, hunting opportunities abound. This area is known for its thriving elk population. However, you'll also find mule deer, moose, bear, and upland game like ruffled grouse and pine hen.
