The Checkpoint Ranch is undoubtedly one of the finest ranches in the coveted Ninemile Valley and a significantly large holding for the area, spanning roughly 1, 101 +/- acres. With unobstructed 360-degree mountain, meadow, and lake views at every turn, it would be difficult to find a more picturesque ranch anywhere, let alone this close to Missoula. In addition to its scenic beauty, the rolling nature of the topography, a blend of creeks, ponds, lakes, grasslands, and heavy timber inside the property lines, create a haven for wildlife, and the lands provide crucial undeveloped wildlife passage between the Rattlesnake wilderness area and Missions to the northeast and the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness to the southwest. Frequent sightings of elk, whitetail deer, turkey, eagles, waterfowl, and songbirds, and occasional visits from moose and grizzly bears, are a testament to the ranch’s habitat productivity. No detail was overlooked in the remodel of the custom home, which features timbered accents, the use of reclaimed barnwood, and high-end finishes. It’s situated on a bluff overlooking two mountain lakes totaling nearly 35 acres in size and provides a spectacular panoramic perspective with a complete sense of privacy. Additional improvements on the ranch include the historic homestead area, complete with an equipment shop and heated tack room, as well as other various outbuildings, pens, and corral system. There are two custom hay barns in separate locations, and the ranch is cross and perimeter-fenced and includes roughly 70 acres under pivot irrigation. The ranch is well-maintained, and is easy to own and operate. The current owners have offset costs with cattle grazing and have managed the ranch with an emphasis on wildlife productivity while maintaining the natural beauty of the landscape. Pride of ownership is evident throughout the ranch, and the property shares state land boundaries for additional recreation opportunities Rarely do we see trophy-caliber ranches like this come to market. The Checkpoint Ranch has all the desirable features, with unmatched privacy and scenic beauty combined with remarkable conservation and wildlife values. These features and a location only 20 minutes from the Garden City of Missoula, make the Checkpoint Ranch a standout property in the current ranch market.
