July 23rd, 2015

“Perhaps once in your professional career do you come upon a property so pristine and impressive in its complete restoration.  From its purchase in 2012, Inyanga Ranch has been transformed into an ultimate estate of unsurpassed beauty, taste and natural elegance.  It is a property that must be experienced.”

INYANGA RANCH – Glenwood Springs, Colorado

Inyanga Ranch video

Pristine. Private. Perfect.  A sublime parcel of the American West, Inyanga Ranch consists of over 530 acres of beautiful river frontage, ponds, meadows and historic cabins at the end of a box canyon, protected by steep granite cliffs that rise up to the Flat Tops Wilderness in western Colorado. Named after a national park in the owner’s native Zimbabwe, Inyanga is bordered on three sides by National Forest Land and BLM, and accessed by a narrow road for maximum privacy, tranquility and security. Two miles of Canyon Creek flow through the ranch providing an excellent natural fishery and abundant source water for nine acres of spring-fed ponds that teem with three species of trout. Mana, a jewel box of a house by award-winning Colorado architect Jack Snow of RKD Architects, was carefully created in a simple palette of metal, cut granite and cedar to echo the surrounding cliffs and merge into the environment.
