Thompson Ranch - SOLD
- Approximately 165 Deeded Acres
- Surrounded on 3 Sides by Dixie National Forest
Located four miles north of the historic southern Utah town of Boulder, Thompson Ranch offers captivating vistas in every direction. This undisturbed beauty will remain intact as it is bounded on three sides by the immense Dixie National Forest.
This 165-acre showplace has been carefully improved by the Thompson family who has owned the Ranch since 1988. The landscaping, with underground sprinkler system, surrounding the home and outbuildings is impeccably maintained. The immaculate improvements, including the main residence with a detached guest suite, a guest house, a heated spa building as well as a shop, several sheds and corrals are very well laid out to maximize functionality. The Ranch currently is leased to a local cattleman who runs 110 head of cattle from May 1st through October 1st. Another viable option would be to run the Ranch as a registered cattle operation running about 50 mother cows on a year-round basis.
The vast expanse of the 1.9 million-acre Grand Staircase – Escalante National Monument dominates the landscape to the south, and the massive and heavily-forested Aquarius Plateau – the highest plateau in North America – looms large to the north. This unusual land form is completely encompassed by the Dixie National Forest.
The Ranch is one of a handful of large privately-owned holdings in the immediate Boulder area. Although the Ranch is uniquely functional as a summer cattle operation, its natural serenity and beauty provides a perfect haven for all who visit this ideal retreat.
