Privacy is everything at this newly renovated property accessed by a narrow canyon road opening onto the 530-acre ranch. Located just outside of Glenwood, Colorado, this western ranch (not far from the recently re-listed Kessler Canyon Ranch) includes a 2,000-square-foot bright modern home designed by Jack Snow of RKD Architects. The home uses a palette of metal, cut granite and cedar materials as well as a dramatic butterfly roof that opens to sweeping views of the pool and canyons. The current owners commissioned expansion plans for a 5,500-square-foot contemporary residence also from RKD Architects on an east-facing promontory, which are included in the sale.
Additional properties include two completely renovated historic creekside guest cabins as well as ranch outbuildings including a 5,000-square-foot equipment barn, heated shop and office building.
The ranch is protected by steep granite cliffs and is bordered on three sides by National Forest and BLM land. The vibrant water rich spread includes two miles of Canyon Creek flowing through the ranch providing water for nine acres of spring fed ponds teeming with three species of trout making for a fisherman's paradise. Additional wildlife include elk, bears, bobcats, mountain lions, turkeys and abundant waterfowl.
While private, the ranch is anything but remote, located 10 minutes from Rifle Garfield Airport and within an hour of the ski slopes, dining and entertainment of Aspen and Vail (where a a slopeside house recently listed for $30M). At an elevation of 6,200 to 6,350 feet, the ranch enjoys a mild western Colorado climate year-round.
