Listing Broker Sam Sanders, based in Salt Lake City represented the Seller of Thompson Ranch, a beautiful recreational and agricultural Utah ranch.  Located four miles north of the historic town of Boulder, Utah, this small cattle Ranch offers captivating vistas in every direction. This undisturbed beauty will remain intact as it is bounded on three sides by the immense Dixie National Forest. This 165-acre showplace offers immaculate landscaping surrounding the main residence, guest house, spa building and outbuildings.  Although the Ranch is uniquely functional as a summer cattle operation, its natural serenity and beauty provides a perfect haven for all who visit this ideal retreat.

The Ranch is one of a handful of large privately-owned holdings in the immediate Boulder area.  The vast expanse of the 1.9 million-acre Grand Staircase – Escalante National Monument dominates the south, and the massive and heavily-forested Aquarius Plateau – the highest plateau in North America – looms large to the north.  This unusual land form is completely encompassed by the Dixie National Forest.
