Property Description

Running Horse Ranch, a 159-acre ranch rich in history located on Hastings Mesa with panoramic mountain views & year-round access. Unlike other ranch properties in the region, this unique property has several buildings, some dating back to the 1800's; an abundance of recreational activities; direct access to National Forest; engineered & totally reliable water rights including several ponds; corrals; two separate buildable lots in addition to the main tract; low taxes & overall low ownership costs enhanced by the income producing caretakers home. Your own private ranch resort offers family fun with year-round recreation such as snowmobiling on trails, cross country skiing, sledding, fishing in trout stocked ponds, zip-lining, canoeing, shooting, ATV/horse riding trails, swimming, gardening.

The 159 acres consists level to gently sloping open meadows, some irrigated to raise alfalfa/hay crops as well as grazing, along with stands of Aspen and Pine trees. Views capture the many surrounding mountain peaks and mountain ranges, even the La Sal Mountains in Utah.

The Main Home was originally built in 1997, then expanded in 2002 and further improved and upgraded in 2009. Thoroughly modern, 3,567 sq. ft. with 4-bedrooms and 4.5 baths, a loft, a large deck and an all-weather heated gazebo, both with spectacular views of the meadows and mountains and an occasional elk herd.

The Caretakers/Guest Home was built in the late 1800's or very early 1900's, and has been refurbished and remodeled probably dozens of times keeping it close to the original. The 1,465 sq. ft. home has 2-bedrooms/1.5 baths, and oversees the productive garden. It is the first building you will see as you enter the ranch.

The Recreation Log Cabin: Built in the 1950's or earlier, near Rico. In 1997 it was dis-assembled into its original logs with every piece numbered, carried out of the deep woods on foot, and then rebuilt on-site. It now sits ¼ mile from the Original Home, overlooking the trout ponds, and is nestled next to an aspen grove. A small stream babbles by in the early and middle summer month. The interior is "Ralph Lauren" style, and the Cabin is now accompanied by a decor-matching separate bathroom building, a large sandstone deck, a fire-pit and a little tot zip-line into the aspens. A great meeting place!

The Main Barn: Hand-hewn construction, this barn was originally built in the 1800's then moved to this site in the early 1900's. It houses the horses and has served as the birthplace for many colts.

Fall '15 property improvements done: Major fence repairs along the entire road leading up to the log cabin and in the meadow. Caretaker's house painted and looks great. Main house landscaping project completed. Main house posts have been stained. New wooden slate installed on the chairlift swing.

Only 20 minute drive to Telluride
