The solitude and the beauty of the 1,994± acres of Knapp Creek Basin Ranch is set in a basin with virtually nothing else visible except Cascade Butte, Mount Cecelia and the mountain vistas. Being located only 3.5 miles from Cascade and the mighty Missouri River, makes this an ideal location for a retreat while also serving as a productive grass ranch.
The 4,500 square-foot main residence was built in 1993-1994 by Dave Zion, a renowned builder, and the 2,000 square-foot art studio was built in 2013. The deluxe artist’s studio could easily be converted into a guest house. All of the improvements sit in the middle of the Ranch, creating a lovely compound, miles from anyone, or so it seems.
Cascade Butte, Mount Cecelia, Knapp Creek, which runs year round through the length of the Ranch, and Branch Creek and Antelope Creek, which are seasonal, all add to the serenity of this wonderful place. The abundance of grass and water creates an ideal habitat for the abundant wildlife and waterfowl.
This Ranch and the surrounding ranches are under conservation easements protecting the beauty of the area into perpetuity. The Sellers carefully assembled the Ranch starting in 1992, and over the years have created this extraordinary private-basin setting, which is now being offered for sale for the first time in 26 years.
