Tyree Ranch

Situated along nine hundred feet of Main Elk Creek, the picturesque 20-acre Tyree Ranch is nestled among towering pines, irrigated meadows, cottonwood trees, scrub oak, juniper and sage. The tastefully remodeled 2,973 sq.ft. log home captures the views of the valley and surrounding hillsides. A channel traverses the property providing ample irrigation for the adjacent hay meadow. Remote and private, the property runs along both sides of the creek with riding and hiking trails crisscrossing the property that is a short ten minute drive to the entrance of Flattops Wilderness area.

This picturesque setting is only 15 minutes to the quaint western town of New Castle, Colorado, and 10 minutes to Lakota Ranch and Golf Course. Harvey Gap Reservoir, a boating, fishing and camping playground, is also ten minutes away.

The property has ample storage for recreational vehicles, a three-car garage finished with a handyman’s workshop and access ramp to storage and RV loft above. There is a 36’ x 60’ wood-framed and metal clad Cleary Building with an oversized, overhead door. Built on slab, this building is insulated and has a 60 ft. porch that faces south to the mountains and creek.

The Ackerman Log Homes residence is built with handsome square cut logs and features four bedrooms with three and one one-half baths. An open, vaulted ceiling with log accents above the great room and dining rooms is separated by a twenty foot high, stone, double-sided, wood fireplace hung on either side by two oversized twin chandeliers. The gourmet kitchen faces a small enamel wood pellet stove which is open to the great room and dining room. Granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, custom cabinets and a breakfast bar add to the charm of this “heartbeat-of-the-house” kitchen. Off the kitchen is a pantry, half bath and laundry facilities. The entire living area on the main floor has granite floors that are radiant heated. There is also a full bedroom and bath on the main floor. The living area opens onto a generous, south facing deck that affords views of this amazing setting in the Colorado Rockies.

The top floor is the master suite with an office landing that looks over the great room and the views through the clear-story windows. This bedroom and bath have excellent natural light and a walk in closet.

The lower level of the home is a lock-off, walk-out apartment with two bedrooms, full bath and ½ kitchen and a concrete patio.
