Mason & Morse Ranch Company to Conduct Event Running Through November 4th, 2014
October 7, 2014 (KANSAS CITY, Mo.) – Serious investors will soon have the opportunity of a lifetime to bid on a prime piece of Montana rangeland at auction. Wyant Creek Ranch, outside of Forsyth, Mont., will be offered to the public during a sealed-bid auction running through Nov. 4. This property is offered in two tracts being either its entirety of approximately 3,424 acres or the northern tract of approximately 1,173 acres.
Wyant Creek Ranch is off-grid property using solar, wind and generators for the buildings and six water wells. This sustainable property includes open rangeland with native grasses, grading into sage and forested hills providing excellent habitat for native wildlife populations.
“The hunting and recreational possibilities are numerous,” said Bart Miller, managing broker of Mason & Morse Ranch Company. “The wildlife consists of mule deer, white-tail deer, antelope, elk, turkey, and grouse. Additionally, snowmobile, cross-country ski, hiking, mountain biking, and fishing the Yellowstone River are just minutes away.”
The property consists of one contiguous block and offers privacy and seclusion, yet within close proximity to Interstate 94 and the town of Forsyth. The ranch is currently running cattle and a few horses.
“The current owner estimates the carrying capacity as 100 AU or 180 pair for the summer,” Miller said. “This could be improved upon with additional fencing for rotational grazing. There are over 200 acres of the ranch that would be ideal for farming development.”
The home, built in 2000, features a second-floor deck, walk-out daylight lower level. The residence is just less than 4,000 square feet with four finished bedrooms. It includes a kitchen and dining room on upper level, two full bathrooms, a den with kitchenette on the lower level, metal roof, fireplace, wood stove, propane GFA heating (1,000-gallon tank), solar electric with two 400-WATT wind generators, plus a back-up gas generator. To top it off, the home has a crow’s nest/cupula with 360-degree views along with fenced landscaping.
The property also features a shop, corrals, well with a 1,000-gallon cistern, septic, as well as satellite and fiber-optic phone service.
