TWO CREEK RANCH
Mink Creek, Idaho
- Approximately 230 Deeded Acres
- Recreation & Production
This 233-acre showplace, located two and a half hours north of Salt Lake City and fifteen minutes north of Preston, Idaho, offers a magnificent 7,500 square-foot custom home, completed in 2011, surrounded by lush lawns and beautifully manicured landscaping overlooking a spring-fed trout pond. The improvements also include a second house, which is well suited as a manager’s home, and well-designed ranch outbuildings and barns.
The Ranch straddles a superior fishing stream – Mink Creek – which is supplemented by Strawberry Creek. Mink Creek enjoys one of the most reliable flows in the entire Intermountain West. Several large free-flowing springs located at the head of the Creek generate large volumes of high-quality water running at ideal cool temperatures for trout. Mink Creek, which flows through the Ranch for about a half mile, has had substantial stream restoration enhancing the trout habitat. The stream is completely fenced in order to prevent any damage from livestock. The Ranch also enjoys excellent proximity to the Caribou National Forest which lends a wonderful recreational aspect to this easily maintained ranch.
Over the past several years the Ranch has been dramatically and thoughtfully improved with the addition of the new owner’s home, a spring-fed fishing pond, stream restoration and new fencing.
Historically, Two Creek Ranch has been utilized as a gathering place for extended family recreation and as a Registered Angus Operation that will run about 40 head of mother cows. The Ranch could also be leased to local cattlemen or run as a quarter-horse showplace. With its solid crop production, this small outfit could be completely self-sufficient. The Ranch is well watered with 130 irrigated acres including 2 new center-pivot sprinklers which were recently installed.
Two Creek Ranch, situated in an ideal Idaho location with spectacular improvements and abundant recreation options, presents an opportunity to purchase a beautiful legacy property.
