Inyanga Ranch consists of over 530 acres of beautiful river frontage, ponds, meadows and remodeled historic cabins at the end of a box canyon, protected by steep sandstone cliffs that rise up to the Flat Tops Wilderness in Glenwood Springs, Colorado.
Named after a national park in the owner’s native Zimbabwe, Inyanga Ranch is bordered on three sides by National Forest Land and BLM, and accessed by a narrow road for maximum privacy, tranquility and security. Two miles of Canyon Creek flow through the ranch providing abundant source water for nine acres of spring-fed ponds that team with three species of trout.
The ranch makeover was a joint effort between owner and Colorado State University Agricultural Department which provided for reseeded, pristine pasture land and meadows. The home is 10 minutes from Rifle Airport where you can fly a large plane and is the preferred alternate for Aspen and Eagle airports.
The property is crowned by a newly constructed two bedroom house with pool by award-winning Colorado architect Jack Snow of RKD Architects.
The home fully crafted in a simple palette of metal, cedar and tones of cut granite to echo the surrounding cliffs and blend into the environment.
Additionally, there are two upgraded riverfront cabins offering a total of eight bedrooms and four and a half baths of existing living quarters. Design plans are available for a RDK Architects main house estate.
The property has a newly constructed hay storage shed in addition to, newly constructed, large equipment storage building with work man’s area, living quarters and office on property.
This property is listed for $23 million with Palladium Properties and is showcased by Luxury Portfolio.
