Acreage Breakdown

335 Deeded


The Hanson Ranch is well improved and set up for the new owners to immediately step in and create their own story. The main residence was built in 2017 and has 1406 square feet finished, with an additional 600 square foot unfinished bonus room above an over-sized garage. The finished portion of the home includes a custom stairway overlooking an open living room that feeds in to the dining and kitchen. The master bedroom is well done with a large walk in bathroom which includes an oversized walk in shower. With central air and heat throughout it would not take much to turn the unfinished bonus room in to an additional bedroom. The second home is a cute 1 bedroom 1 bath house with a nice sized kitchen and living room. With a little paint and some new carpet, this house could be an excellent fit for a guest house or managers home. The working facilities include a 2400 sqft pole framed barn, corrals, and feedlot with the capability to feed 200 calves or 100-125 cows. Each corral including 4 horse paddocks have there own heated waterer. For convenience, a tack room is centrally located between the 4 horse paddocks.

Recreational Considerations

The property provides an excellent opportunity to hunt whitetail deer, mule deer, upland and migratory birds along with fishing along 1.5 miles of river frontage. You will find the majority of the whitetail along the heavily timbered river bottoms, while the mule deer roam the rolling hills over looking the property. The migratory and upland bird hunting along the Clarks Fork River is very good!
