Real Estate Details
Every detail of Flying Buffalo Ranch holds the promise of productivity and a grand lifestyle on this 45+-acre equestrian ranch. Beginning with a 3,000+ SQ FT, 3-bedroom and 3.5-bath, quality-built dream home by Galbraith Builders, celebrating the Southwest style throughout with its design and textures. Built for quiet evenings alone or for a large gathering, the chef’s kitchen is ready for multiple cooks and guests. Extra storage is built into the dining room for easy access to table settings for every occasion. Sunsets are brought inside through floor-to-ceiling western facing windows into the spacious great room showcasing a six-foot wide stone fireplace. And every window enjoys expansive pastoral and mountain views, while passive heating and cooling are preserved by the perfect orientation of the home placement on the land. A large healthy pond is the center feature as you enter the grounds. Fresh water from the Thompson-Epperson Ditch provides a strong inlet to fill the lined pond while a stone waterfall empties into the irrigation lines beyond the yard. The landscaping is watered entirely by pond water and constant movement of the pond water keeps it fresh and sanitary. In addition to the main home there is a 1,700 SQ FT, 2 bedroom, 2-bath cottage and a perfectly organized, heated 3-room stable structure. The land is rich, the water plentiful and climate moderate here in the banana belt of Colorado. This farm/ranch would be ideal for an extended family desiring off the grid living for generations to come. Sufficient hay production to feed your own horses or cattle with enough to sell as well makes this an ideal spot for those wanting a family homestead. Forty-four+-acres of gravity-fed irrigation providing 1.4 shares of water rights from a new irrigation system maintains a luxurious green expanse beyond the mature landscaping by the home, pond, hot tub, cottage, stable and a detached 2-car garage, huge floored storage building and an equipment storage for farm. The acreage is mostly pasture with pipe fencing and gated pipe irrigation. There is a 1-acre landscaped area around the house with abundant perennial and rose gardens, including a separate vegetable and raspberry patch and tall mature trees for privacy and shade. This property offers the best of both worlds with the perfect mix of amenities on the right amount of acreage to make it very manageable, while providing maximum enjoyment and privacy.
