In Paradise Valley, the world is a breathtaking canvas of natural beauty conveyed in layers: towering mountains, sloping foothills, extensive valleys and a roaring river that shapes and gives life to it all—a scene perfectly scripted and infinitely inspiring.
Once owned by American novelist and screenwriter Thomas McGuane, III, Barney Creek Ranch was a place of inspiration, a private retreat where he bore witness to the ever-changing American West: its storied past and its uncertain future. Today, one thing is certain. Barney Creek remains a place where natural beauty and historic buildings still dominate the landscape, vastly untouched.
“It’s exceptional. There’s really no other way to describe it,” said Tracy Raich, owner of Raich Montana Properties, LLC and a consistent top seller in the southwestern Montana real estate market. “You can see beauty throughout Paradise Valley, but Barney Creek really lets you live it. This is one of the most exceptional recreational properties of this size to come on the market.”
