This ranch has been carefully crafted to offer the ultimate four-season experience to its owners and their fortunate guests. In addition to its world-class facilities, the grounds provide incredible outdoor sporting opportunities that include a shooting gallery and rifle range, a waterfall with spawning creek to the lake and three aluminum dock systems for fishing and swimming with power and water. A popular summertime destination is the private wade-in sandy beach, with its own swimming dock complete with water toys such as stand up paddle boards, peddle boats and kayaks. There’s even a remote spit on the lake, nicknamed Indian Island, which is landmarked with its authentic teepee and features a fire pit made for late nights under the stars.
Shop & Caretaker’s House
The caretaker’s house is perched above the shop and back from the lake, providing everyday comfort and easy ranch access to a full-time caretaker. This 1,400 square foot residence includes two bedrooms, a private laundry, a large living room with French doors out to a view deck and private interior and exterior access to its own shop area.
A 6,900 square foot maintenance shop building lies discretely to the south. This structure is the heart of the ranch’s maintenance program, and offers six 14’ roll doors to easily accommodate large equipment, and the back shop includes an additional two 12’ and one 14’ foot electric access doors. A full-time maintenance crew enjoys all the utilities and resources one would expect from a small town including a fire truck, tractor and excavation equipment, road maintenance vehicles and a dedicated gas station.
To meet practicality, there are two water pumping stations and five private wells on site, with numerous outbuildings and a barn for storage and utility. There’s even a commercial dredger for pumping out material from the lake and creating a rather prosperous amount of peat for fertilizing the ranch. In addition, the portfolio comes with a wide selection of associated accessories for enjoying its many recreational opportunities that range from ATVs and boats to the novelty of a 1967 Amphicar! Finally, a helicopter pad sits on a promontory near the guest compound on Metcalf Lake for ready access to and from the outside world.
