SIESTA RANCH - SOLD
North of Belgrade, Montana | Gallatin County
- Approximately 950 Deeded Acres
- Minutes from Belgrade and Bozeman
Noted philanthropist Ron Woods' Siesta Ranch contains approximately 950 deeded acres and represents an opportunity to own an attractive agricultural and recreation property in the highly desirable Gallatin Valley. The Ranch provides commanding views of the Bridger, Spanish Peak, Gallatin and Tobacco Root Mountain Ranges and is only minutes from Bozeman-Yellowstone International Airport and the communities of Belgrade and Bozeman.
About one mile of Dry Creek stretches from the northern to the southern boundary of the Ranch providing the opportunity for small-stream trout fishing and creating an ideal habitat for upland birds and whitetail deer. Further enhancement to the stream and riparian thread would augment the fishing and wildlife habitat. Ring-necked pheasant, Hungarian partridge and sharp-tail grouse can be particularly abundant in this area of Montana. The Dry Creek corridor is also excellent habitat for whitetail deer, with the higher portions of the Ranch hosting resident mule deer and occasional elk herds.
The Siesta Ranch is nicely improved with an attractive compound feel that includes three homes, two barns and corrals – ideal for horses or cattle. The owner’s home is very comfortable and is situated in a beautiful yard with mature landscaping and Dry Creek meandering below. There are two additional homes that would work well for guests or a Ranch Manager. An internal trail network across the diverse terrain provides miles of riding or hiking for the outdoor and equestrian enthusiasts. The private tennis court adds to the recreational amenities.
The approximately 400± acres of dry-land farm ground is currently leased and produces consistent yields of wheat and barley crops. The Ranch also supports a small cattle operation that utilizes the native grass pastures. Located in one of the most traditional agricultural locales in the Gallatin Valley, the Siesta Ranch is a low-maintenance, productive and easy to manage ranching and agricultural operation, with convenient access to all of the community and social events in the Bozeman and Belgrade communities.
