Contiguous Deeded Ranch Land
Montana Ranch for Sale in a Premier Locale
Graced with stunning panoramas of Western Montana’s Crazy and Absaroka-Beartooth Mountain Ranges, this Montana ranch for sale holds a desirable location in Sweet Grass County – just twelve miles north of Big Timber and about 75 miles from Bozeman.
Situated in the foothills of the Crazy Mountains, the Ladder Ranch has a rare combination of precious live water, solitude and unsullied viewscapes. The Ranch consists of approximately 1,125 deeded acres of contiguous and blocked-up Montana land for sale.
A custom home, built in 1996, is masterfully situated to capitalize on uninterrupted views sweeping from a spring-fed trout pond to magnificent snowcapped peaks. The approximately 4,860 square-foot house is masterfully positioned with uninterrupted views which encompass the spring-fed pond to the snowcapped peaks of the Crazy Mountains to the west. The home has a very functional and well-designed open floor plan that would accommodate a variety of living styles. This split-level home has a daylight basement which opens up to a lower level patio overlooking the pond. Wrap-around decks on the southern and western exposures provide sweeping views of the Ranch and surrounding mountain ranges.
This Montana ranch is laced with perennial streams including mature stands of cottonwoods and willows providing good cover for wildlife. There are also two ponds holding good populations of trout which enhance the property both from an agricultural as well as a recreational aspect encouraging a variety of bird and wildlife habitats.
Approximately 80 acres of Sainfoin, a deep-rooted, drought-resistant, forage legume often preferred by livestock over alfalfa, is planted under pivot irrigation. An additional 80 acres planted to an alfalfa/grass mix has historically been irrigated with a gated pipe irrigation system. Neither irrigation system has been utilized for the past several years due to the high levels of precipitation in the area. The balance of the acreage has been restored to native Montana grasses and crested wheat grass plantings. The terrain is rolling hills with some deeper draws which provide habitat and cover for wildlife.
The Ladder Ranch is being offered in its entirety for $2,775,000. It is an attractive choice for buyers desirous of owning a low-maintenance, productive and easy-to-manage ranch. It is situated in one of Montana’s premier locales and can be purchased at the right price.
