Lazy TP Ranch

Sold: 2017 Lazy TP Ranch Whitehall, Montana

Details & Features

The Lazy TP Ranch in Montana starts at the Jefferson River, climbing through irrigated bench land and grassy foot hills all the way to Forest service boundary in the Tobacco Root Mountains. This Montana ranch offers a diversity of topography, vegetation, scenery, wildlife, agricultural production and recreation that few other ranches for sale in the West can claim. The ranch is just a few minutes from the quaint town of Whitehall, less than 30 minutes from Butte and about an hour from Bozeman and Helena. The Lazy TP is a distinctive and opportunity-laden Montana ranch. It is the perfect fit for anglers, upland bird, waterfowl and big game hunters, horse riders and all types of outdoor recreationalists. This is an expansive, working ranch for sale with incredible vistas and recreational opportunities that would be difficult if not impossible to recreate anywhere in the western United States.

Lying in the heart of the Jefferson River Valley, the ranch runs from the banks of the Jefferson River up to the Forest Service land of the Tobacco Root Mountains. Kountz Bridge Road gives access to the ranch headquarters. The Lazy TP is approximately 10,000 deeded acres and is a mix of riparian river bottom, irrigated crop, pasture and alpine timber. There is a 640-acre State of Montana lease that is a mix of rolling grass land and timber that is surrounded by the ranch and is accessed by a private interior ranch trail. The ranch boasts over 1,300 acres of irrigated, tillable ground, served by 13 modern center pivot systems. A 318-acre Bureau of Land Management lease is also included in the sale.

The Lazy TP Ranch boasts top of the line improvements for cattle handling, calving and breeding.  A set of barns, fully-equipped shop, corrals and irrigation equipment are included. The cattle facilities are modern and durable, made from heavy drill stem and concrete. All fences on the ranch are either new or very well maintained. There are three indoor livestock facilities complete with hydraulic squeeze chute, stalls and corals for working in bad weather. There is also a small feedlot with adjustable cable dividers, good water and convenient access for feeding to accommodate any cattle needs. One look will tell stockmen that this ranch was designed for ease of operation and efficiency.

A recently updated manager’s home, historic ranch house, and comfortable house for ranch hands are centrally located on the property. All spacious and cozy, these homes have been recently reroofed and remodeled. The homes and ranch compound are attractive, well-landscaped and tidy.

Montana ranches for sale that run from lush river bottom to the border of forest service and alpine country are special and rare. Wildlife is prolific and recreational opportunities abound on this colorful and varied western landscape. The Lazy TP Ranch is without a doubt one of the finest working ranches and mixed-use recreational properties on the market in the Rocky Mountain West.
