Exquisite Home & Equestrian Facilities on Premier Trout Water

Augusta, Montana

  • $9,250,000
  • Approximately 3,050± Total Acres
  • Located in Lewis & Clark and Teton Counties

The Sun River Ranch, adjacent to Montana’s majestic Rocky Mountain Front – one of the most stunning geological thrust-belt formations in North America, contains approximately 3,050± total acres straddling the Sun River.  The Ranch is set in the dramatic intersection between the striking Rocky Mountains to the west and the vast grassy prairies to the east.  The tranquility and privacy of the surreal setting represent an attractive opportunity to own a remarkable “turn-key” fly-fishing and equestrian property on renowned trout water.  The Ranch is conveniently located about 17 miles west of Augusta and a comfortable 1¼-hour drive from the commercial and private airport services in Great Falls. 

The architecturally-designed main compound is a tasteful combination of log and stone sited above the Sun River providing commanding vistas of the River and The Front’s Sawtooth Ridge and Castle Reef.  It is easy to appreciate the thought and effort put into the placement and design of each structure on the Ranch.  Too often the process of placing improvements in an inimitable landscape is hastily done.  The owner of the Sun River Ranch spent nearly a year carefully evaluating and assessing locations for views, weather and sunshine.

Attention to every detail is evident in this masterfully-crafted and architecturally-correct home. The state-of-the-art technology, supreme quality and unsurpassed style that is boasted throughout the home make the Sun River Ranch the ultimate Montana retreat.  Complementing the home is a carefully designed equestrian barn, complete with attendant’s quarters, tack room, wash bay and grooming station.  The helipad and hangar located near the compound provide for ease of travel for those who take advantage of private-air travel.  The Ranch must be personally experienced to appreciate the extraordinary care and detail that have been put into the design, construction and final finish. 

The Sun River courses through the Ranch for over three miles and is a tributary of the Missouri River – a relatively unknown tail-water fishery created by Gibson Dam.  The deep holes, frequent riffles, runs and glides of this scenic section of the Sun offer boundless fishing.  The riparian corridor along the Sun River is graced by large stands of cottonwood trees, aspens and willows. 

A five-acre stocked pond has been meticulously enhanced to create an ideal environment for prolific rainbows.  Devoted anglers will also appreciate that the famed tail-water stretch of the Missouri River below Holter Dam is a comfortable hour’s drive from the Ranch.  The wildlife on the Ranch is abundant and is further enhanced by the adjoining 19,000-acre Sun River Game Range and immediate access to the Bob Marshall Wilderness and Scapegoat Wilderness areas. 

The recreational opportunities that the Ranch offers to the next fortunate owner are unique and abundant.  Individuals desirous of escaping to the cool summer evenings and temperate summer days to enjoy horseback riding, fishing and hunting in a premier location will appreciate the opportunity the Sun River Ranch provides.

The Seller owns an additional 1,341± deed acres located southeast of the Sun River Ranch.  This additional acreage can be purchased in conjunction with the Sun River Ranch and would provide a nice irrigated base and additional pasture if a new owner was desirous of expanding the agricultural component of the Sun River Ranch.  Additional details of this parcel are described in the Physical Description section of the Offering Brochure, or feel free to contact our Bozeman office for price, maps, water rights and acreage classification.
