A $45 Million Colorado Ranch
The iconic Diamond Tail Ranch is on the market featuring 12 residences, 17k+ deeded acres, 27 miles of trout fishing and so much more
An iconic Rocky Mountain ranch just hit the market in Larimer County, CO. The rustic property has 12 residences, 750 head of bison, a dining hall, 17k+ deeded acres and a remarkable 27 miles of trout fishing water. The ranch's price tag is a cool $44.9 million.
Since 1979, Diamond Tail Ranch has been carefully stewarded by the Duncan family, owners of renown Silver Oak Cellars. The picturesque setting for this property is the pristine upper Laramie River Valley in northern Colorado, an optimal locale where the river spills out of the high country into a broad valley ringed by mountains.
Spanning the entire five-mile width of the basin, Diamond Tail’s 17,656± deeded acres ascend up the surrounding mountain slopes to wilderness, national forest and BLM boundaries.
Diamond Tail Ranch embodies the iconic image of an authentic Rocky Mountain ranch, encompassing a secluded valley at the base of snow-capped peaks, with a trout-filled river flowing through lush meadows and pastures with wildlife grazing alongside ranch livestock. As they had done for centuries, a large bison herd still roams the ranch today.
Well-maintained buildings range from historic barns to modern owner’s homes and authentic guest cabins. A dining hall and hilltop chapel help accommodate large groups comfortably, too. The ranch is outfitted with on-site employee housing, operational support buildings, livestock handling facilities and even a private airstrip.
Despite its secluded mountain valley locale, Diamond Tail is easily accessible 45± minutes from all services in Laramie, Wyoming, including the commercial airport, and only 2-3 hours from the Ft. Collins, Boulder and Denver metro areas.
Steeped in historical significance, natural resources and ecological importance, Diamond Tail Ranch is truly one of the most appealing and significant large-scale mountain ranches to become available in recent years.
