The residence located on the ranch is a small three-bedroom home, which was originally built by the current owner’s granddad when they homesteaded there. Minor improvements have been made to the home.
Located just south of the house is a set of holding pens. The water system contains one well that is approximately 450 to 500 feet deep and operates a two-horse pump that fills a 40x40 x5 concrete storage tank lined with fiberglass. From the tank a three-horse pump sends the water out to the ranch where the BLM has water lines and rubber tire tanks with storage.
