The Shaw Ranch - WATER, and MORE WATER!  1194+ acre ranch with 7 adjudicated springs and 4 ponds Located in GMU 441.
Relax on the immense deck and enjoy the peaceful view of your own fish ponds and Black Mountain.  If you wanted you could comfortably live on one level of the 3900 sq. ft. (2 level) home; the 4 bedroom, 3 bath home has been updated with many additions, including in-floor heat and skylights.  The home features a giant primary bedroom, with a private primary (jetted tub) bath, including large walk-in closets.  The large open kitchen is updated and includes granite countertops, next to the kitchen is a formal dining area and living room with a beautiful custom marble fireplace with local marble from Marble, CO. Downstairs is an additional 2 bedrooms, a media room, an office, and a custom split bathroom.   
In addition, near the home is a very nice 650 +/- sq. ft. guest house or caretakers house.   
Work in the heated shop and park all your equipment and toys inside the 2 shops. The larger, newer 40x 60 ft. shop is a great man cave with a TV, in-floor heat, skylights, and a loft; plus 3 stalls that could be opened to use for your horses.  In addition, the second shop has been restored and offers more storage, and additional parking; both shops have additional covered side parking.  Near the fish ponds is an additional historic birthing barn waiting for you to use your imagination. 
The Shaw Ranch has an abundance of water with its 7 adjudicated springs, one spring is the gravity fed water source for the homes, and has such an abundance of water it runs into the ponds year round.  The remaining springs have all been developed and have stock tanks with overflows in place. All the springs have very good flow with the largest producing several gallons a minute. In addition, there is another that could potentially be developed. 

The Ranch land is just shy of 1200 acres consisting of gentle rolling hills with several long draws filled with wildlife, oak brush, serviceberry, and a few patches of cottonwood trees for shade. The ranch is fenced and cross fenced and includes both pasture and hay ground. The fields are planted in both grass and alfalfa and you can put up your own hay from the dryland alfalfa field.  There is even a 1000 yard shooting range just waiting for you to practice at. 

Wildlife includes mule deer, antelope, elk, ducks, sandhill cranes, geese, greater and sharptail grouse; and of course fox, coyotes, and rabbits. 

The Shaw Ranch is a very comfortable Ranch located just north of Hayden, Colorado with unlimited fun including hunting, fishing, ranching, farming; plus boating and fishing just a few miles away at Elkhead Reservoir.  The Hayden airport is just 10 minutes away and Steamboat Springs is a beautiful 30 minute drive.

An additional 202 acres is also available for sale.
