Property Description

This 1345 +/- acre Yellowstone River Ranch is a Livingston Ranch for Sale located along one of Montana’s greatest fly fishing rivers for over 1± mile.  The Paradise Valley is highly prized for its dramatic beauty, extraordinary outdoor opportunities and is one of the most coveted locations for recreational ranches in Montana because of the abundant wildlife and fishery resources as well as some of the most dramatic scenery in the Northern Rockies.  For these reasons, it is difficult to imagine an investment that will provide more enjoyment while at the same time remain one of the most sought after and finite products in the real estate investment world.

The Ranch is conveniently placed in Paradise Valley midway between Yellowstone National Park and downtown Livingston Montana. At the present time, this is one of the last large river ranches left in Paradise Valley being offered for sale.  As the name suggests, the Yellowstone River forms the western boundary for over 1± mile.  The rolling bluffs above the river provide ‘big sky’ views with the Gallatin Mountains to the West, the Absaroka Beartooth’s to the East, and glimpses of the Crazy Mountain range to the North.  The agricultural and recreational attributes are wide and varied.  The river bottom is full of cottonwood trees and small junipers breaking away into a lush irrigated hay meadow.  The lush river bottom is loaded with wildlife, including Mule Deer, Whitetail and plentiful waterfowl. The shade and tranquility of the river bottom is enough to give solace even on the hottest of Montana summer days.  The Yellowstone River Ranch will  provide the buyer with a  beautiful Montana lifestyle, whether it be on a full or part time basis.

The ranch consists of approximately 1,345± acres of deeded land in 9 contiguous tracts of record.  The ranch is made up of 123± acres of lush riparian riverfront habitat, 125 ± acres of pivot irrigated land with the remaining acreage being rolling dry land topography.  The Yellowstone River forms the western boundary, while the Absaroka Mountains and picture perfect Emigrant peak line the eastern skyline. The view from the bluffs that overlook the valley provide an expansive panorama of the Yellowstone River valley.  The ranch offers multiple building sites with river and mountain views and beautiful accreted lands comprise one riparian tract equal to 32.8 ± acres.  The historic Old Yellowstone Trail for non-motorized public use crosses the ranch along the river bank. A beautiful stone house that was built in 1915 and has been unoccupied for a very long time is full of charm and ready for renovation.  Also included are a handful of old working corrals, a large shed and an old barn.

The Yellowstone River Ranch has a wider diversity of wildlife than most ranches including waterfowl, upland birds, raptors, big game animals, and assorted other species.  It is not uncommon to see 50± mule deer on the upper ranch and the river bottom is full of whitetail deer as well. Being located so close to Yellowstone Park and wilderness lands, one never knows what kind of wildlife traverses the ranch.
