Property Description

The Historic Baldwin Ranch is a One-of-a-Kind Property being offered on the market for the first time in decades and offers panoramic mountain and valley views. This property takes your breath away with jaw-dropping views of the famous Castles rock formation, Carbon Peak, Whetstone Mountain, the Anthracites & Castle Creek drainage. If fishing is your passion, then approximately 1.5+ miles of Ohio Creek ribbons through the length of the ranch with a fenced off portion for riparian areas featuring rainbow, brown & cutbow trout. The Baldwin Ranch features 243 acres total with approximately 135 acres being irrigated pastureland and has approximately 25 cfs of water rights. Diverse wildlife such as elk, mule deer & moose frequent the property with a good probability of being eligible for landowner deer tags. High above it all sits a 5,552-sf stone, 2-story home with 4 huge master suites, 4.5 bathrooms and an attached 2-car garage on an amazing 43-acre knoll. Built in 1974, the home was top-of-the-line in its day, but now prime for renovation with great bones. Featuring a large kitchen/dining room, oversized great room, massive rock fireplace, additional large upstairs living area and big picture windows throughout enjoying spectacular elevated views. The original homestead nearby consists of an old log barn, corral, 2 log cabins, a storage building, small spring and an old (non-livable) main home. Offered in its entirety, the Baldwin Ranch is a true legacy property, rich in history and perfect for the conservation-minded Buyer as it has not yet been encumbered with any type if conservation easement, leaving the tax advantages of that possibility to the next owner - basically a blank canvas sandwiched between several larger ranches that have already been put into conservation easements. The Baldwin Ranch is easily accessible during the winter and summer as it borders a year-round accessible county road. Gunnison National Forest is nearby with access into 176,000 acres of the West Elk Wilderness. Remarkable opportunity to own a slice of Paradise close to a well-known ski area, a 4-year university, jet-served airport, historic town of Crested Butte, world-class fly-fishing rivers, largest lake in Colorado & a good hospital. Only 16 miles north of the charming western town of Gunnison and a beautiful 35-minute drive over scenic byway Ohio Pass to Crested Butte in the summer. Perfect setup for the sportsmen, family retreat, gentleman’s ranch, or possible VRBO situation. County zoned, no covenants with endless possibilities! All this is waiting for you in the heart of the Colorado Rocky Mountains!
