Located approximately 2 hours north of Denver, Colorado, and 25 minutes east of Laramie, Wyoming, is the 1,000±-acre Windsong Ranch. A secluded western retreat with direct access to the Medicine Bow National Forest, the ranch offers a unique blend of rich riparian corridors, mountain views and dramatic rocky outcrops. The well-built 2BR/1BA log home features a wrap-around deck overlooking one of the ranch’s several ponds. The current and original owners of Windsong rely exclusively on year-round solar and wind power, with a back-up diesel generator. However, public electricity could be accessed to service the property. South Crow Creek, home to wily brook trout, traverses the property for 1 mile providing the aesthetic beauty of live water. The ranch enjoys frequent visits from elk, antelope, mule deer, moose and wild turkeys, along with abundant songbirds. The Windsong Ranch represents an ideal blend of live water, direct access to seemingly infinite public lands and nearby recreational attractions, and self-sufficiency, while being in close proximity to Cheyenne, Laramie, Fort Collins and Denver.
The ranch is conveniently located approximately 2 hours north of Denver, 1 hour north of Fort Collins, and 25 minutes from both Cheyenne and Laramie, Wyoming. With direct access to the spectacular Medicine Bow National Forest, the ranch borders Curt Gowdy State Park. The ranch offers nearby recreational and cultural attractions, while being in close proximity to Cheyenne, Laramie, Fort Collins and other Colorado Front-Range locations. Windsong Ranch is comprised of 1,000± deeded acres. Alternatively, a buyer could elect to purchase 750± deeded acres encompassing all of the improvements for a lesser price. Although the ranch is adjacent to state and federal lands, there are no public-lands grazing leases associated with the ranch.
The well-constructed 2BR/1BA log home features a wrap-around deck overlooking one of the ranch’s several ponds. Charmingly simple in design, the home is warm and welcoming with a wood-burning stove, propane furnace, private well, Wi-Fi, landline phone service, security system, and walk-in basement with a propane freezer and ample storage.
Two forks of South Crow Creek traverse the ranch, providing habitat for eager brook trout and other aquatic life. A series of ponds have been created along the creek that have been stocked with brook trout and provide habitat for waterfowl and shorebirds. Excellent trout fishing is also available nearby on the storied Laramie and Little Laramie Rivers, the North Platte River, and numerous creeks and mountain lakes in the adjacent Medicine Bow National Forest.
Windsong Ranch is a stunning, private ranch on the northern edge of the Front Range corridor in an ideal rural setting. Available for use as a recreational retreat, a primary residence, or a telecommuting pied à terre, Windsong Ranch provides the pleasure of seclusion and vast adjacent public lands, yet it is 2 hours from Denver International Airport and 25 minutes from either Laramie or Cheyenne, Wyoming.
Buyers have the option to purchase 750 acres with all improvements at an offering price of $1,600,000.
