KINDRED RANCH | Sold
Augusta, Montana | Lewis and Clark County
- 635± Deeded Acres
- Live water and majestic views
SOLD - The Kindred Ranch, named in honor of the generations of family that have lived on the Ranch since its homestead claim in 1908, is set in the dramatic intersection between the striking Rocky Mountain Front to the west and the vast grassy prairies rolling to the eastern horizon. The tranquility and dramatic views from this 635± deeded-acre ranch represent an opportunity to own a recreation, agricultural or equestrian property in a very desirable Montana locale. Elk Creek, a healthy private trout stream, flows through the Ranch for about ¼ mile with mature stands of cottonwood, aspen and willow trees that create a wildlife-rich riparian corridor.
The improvements on the Kindred Ranch have been completely updated and capture the spectacular views of Haystack Butte, Steamboat Peak and the Front Range, yet maintain the connection of over a century of family history on the Ranch. The original 1908 homestead cabin still stands in the Ranch headquarters as a quiet sentinel to the family anthology. This impeccably maintained Ranch offers the opportunity for comfortable year-round living or as a seasonal escape to enjoy the cool evenings and long temperate summer days that are perfect for horseback riding, fishing and hunting in this premier Rocky Mountain location.
Devoted anglers will appreciate that the famed tail-water stretch of the Missouri River below Holter Dam is a comfortable hour’s drive from the Ranch – within easy striking distance when one of the legendary hatches are coming off the river. The wildlife and recreation opportunities on the Ranch are further enhanced by the adjoining 6,400± acre parcel of State Land and the millions of acres of nearby Forest Service and Wilderness lands.
The Ranch is ideally suited for a gentlemen’s ranch or a nice-sized horse operation. Several attractive locations exist to construct a small set of working corrals and riding arena. The lush native pastures are well suited for maintaining several saddle horses or a small herd of cattle for the summer months. With limitless trail riding opportunities out your back door, the next owner could enjoy years of exploring the back country of The Bob Marshall Wilderness Area and the thousands of acres of public land that border the Ranch.
The Kindred Ranch compound is easily accessible and conveniently located off of Elk Creek Road about 7 miles southwest of the small agricultural community of Augusta – locally known as the Gateway to the Bob Marshall Wilderness. Great Falls, the closest urban center, is a comfortable hour drive from the Ranch and provides commercial and private airport services.
