Three Forks Ranch - $2,750,000
This is an amazing property for anyone who wants to have the feeling of being on a remote and private ranch surrounded by wildlife just minutes from town. The Three Forks Ranch includes a 5,600 square foot custom home, +/- 392 deeded acres and +/- 1.25 miles of Jefferson River frontage. There is also a large mutli-use building with excellent storage capacity. A 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment is built into this multi-use building. The property is very hidden and private, with a bridge across its own "moat," a largely stagnant channel of the Jefferson River that wraps around the south and east sides of the property. The majority of the property lies within the floodplain of the Jefferson River and a prime breeding area for mosquitoes. A conservation easement on this property would help preserve the integrity of the wildlife habitat and scenery of this stretch of the Jefferson River. See the complete listing at Fay Ranches.
Lost Highway Ranch - $495,000
The Lost Highway Ranch is a small parcel near Three Forks, Montana, with 29.67 acres of land and a 1,488 square foot manufactured home. Additional developments include a large garage and a wood shed. Highway 2 previously ran through the property, prior to rebuilding and straightening the road, thus the name. This property includes two ponds, good whitetail and waterfowl hunting, and as with any property in this area, lots of prime mosquito habitat. Aside from concerns about mosquitoes and West Nile virus, this would be a prime horse property. It is fenced and cross-fenced for horse management. Additional acreage may be available. A conservation easement on this property would help preserve the integrity of the wildlife habitat and scenery of this stretch of the Jefferson River. See the complete listing at Prudential Montana.
