Situated in eastern Utah and bordering Colorado, the 850 acre Picture Gallery Ranch offers a private sanctuary with 365-degree views of Utah’s iconic landscape, including the La Sal Mountains to the south. The ranch compound sits at the southern end of a spectacular 100 acre meadow which is ideal for early morning and late evening wildlife viewing. Populations of elk & mule deer visit the ranch which is surrounded by vast stretches of public land. The ranch is a 5-hour drive from Salt Lake City and approximately 45 minutes from Grand Junction. The tastefully designed homes, barn and outbuildings make up the ranch’s main compound and all are easily accessible from the gated entrance. The 3,000 sq ft main home includes a huge master suite with walkout patio, oversized living area with a wood burning fireplace plus a comfortable outdoor seating area. The charming hunter’s cabin boasts 4 bedrooms + 2 bathrooms, perfect for hosting additional family members or guests. A spectacular 2,600 sq ft lodge is ideal for large family gatherings and includes a 1 bedroom/1 bathroom accommodation for staff or guests. All of the homes have been updated and equipped with internet and satellite TV. A custom-built horse barn evokes an old-world style and contains 6 horse stalls, tack room, game processing room as well as plenty of additional storage for equipment and hay. Various corrals and working pens are included in the sale. A well maintained 40′ x 60′ insulated garage, with work benches, 220V electric plus a large equipment shed and various storage sheds offer plenty of room in which to store vehicles and farming equipment. Owners currently flood irrigate 90 acres on the ranch though a series of canals and diversion points. A mixture of grass hay is grown and baled by a neighboring contract farmer. Water associated with the ranch provides ample irrigation and stock watering and, if so desired, there is a potential for a new owner to improve grazing & hay production based on the existing irrigation infrastructure. The owners have added riding pens on the property and all corrals are in great condition. The original owners built a corral suitable for bison which currently serves as hay storage. Picture Gallery Ranch is located in the La Sal- Dolores Triangle hunting unit (www.wildlife.utah.gov) where Limited Entry & General Season hunts are options for mule deer & elk (rifle, archery & muzzleloader). The La Sal Dolores Triangle is a designated wintering range for elk and mule deer that provides fantastic wildlife viewing opportunities on the ranch and surrounding Public Lands. Prospective Buyers should check with the local field office of the Division of Wildlife Resources to confirm the availability for mule deer hunts on the ranch based on seasonal herd populations. The current owners have harvested elk on the ranch and depredation tags for elk have also been made available. In addition, healthy turkey populations frequent the ranch. The ranch has great direct access to the adjacent Colorado Unit 40 trophy elk hunting unit which provides for additional hunting opportunities and revenue potential. The entirety of the ranch is under a conservation easement an allows for agricultural, hunting & tourism related business. The property adjoins the Westwater Canyon Wilderness Study Area which spans the Westwater Canyon portion of the Colorado River. Major tributary canyons on the east side of the river include Little Dolores, Marble, and Star canyons. The ranch is a one-hour horseback ride through Marble Canyon to the river. A short box canyon, Little Hole, and small secluded valley (Big Hole) are the main features northwest of the river. Pinyon-juniper woodlands, sagebrush and blackbrush cover this region of Utah. Opportunities for whitewater boating and related camping and hiking in the area are outstanding.
