If river frontage, mountain views, acreage, loads of wildlife, close proximity to town on a highway, a nice home, indoor arena, and nearly 90 acres of private land are on your checklist, please consider the Ouellette Ranch. We are pleased to present this special property located just under 11-miles north of Sheridan, WY on the Decker Highway in the Tongue River valley. The gently flowing Tongue River flows through this property for about 1/3 of a mile and next to it are over 1,700 acres of BLM land that leverage this property’s size and recreational value immeasurably. Lining the banks of the Tongue River are many different types of trees, but none more impressive than the towering century old Cottonwoods. These treasured trees are so impressive and also so vital to the river corridor and general ecosystem. They are truly a precious amenity to the ranch. Wildlife in this area include, but are not limited to, mule and whitetail deer; many different species of upland game birds and waterfowl; plus, birds of prey like eagles and other raptors; even black bear are not uncommon. For fishing, this area of the Tongue River is good for walleye, perch, catfish, and trout at times.
For the equestrian enthusiast, there’s a 60 x 120-foot indoor arena with an attached 8 stall barn with separate tack room and wash area. The land is very productive with nearly 18 acres capable of being flood irrigated out of the Interstate Ditch. There is an additional 20± acre dryland pasture that has access to Ash Creek as a year round water supply for animals. It would work well as a small ag property or maybe as a horse ranch for pleasure or for training as it has been in the past.
The traditional, two story home has 4 bedrooms and 3 ½ bathrooms. It was built to satisfy almost every need one would want in a house, but in particular family living and enjoyment. The home’s main feature is the large 980 sf family room the current owners just love. It’s full of windows on three sides and it has A/C electric heat and wood-burning stove. It feels a lot like being in a screened-in outdoor porch, but that can be enjoyed year-round. The home also has a full finished walkout basement with a ½ bath and several large storage rooms; plus, three other basement rooms are used for entertainment and two for general living needs. The outside walls are 14” thick so it’s very efficient and quiet. With lots of big windows, the house has great lighting and it’s easy to enjoy the beautiful views of the outdoors from just about any room, not just the family room.
Many of the other home’s features deserve mention like its large kitchen, a formal dining room, smooth textured walls, custom built-in cabinets and bookshelves, a covered and screened-in porch, more than enough storage, jacuzzi bathtubs, walk-in showers, and a huge 4 car, drive-thru garage.
Finally, this nice property has a secondary home that could be used as a guest house or as a place for a property manager to live. It is located away from the main home, so both houses can maintain their sense of privacy.
Please call or send us a message to learn more about this property. It is definitely rare for a property with all that this one has to come on the market.
Located along the Tongue River about 11 miles north of Sheridan, Wyoming, with great access right off the Decker Highway.
