Rivers Edge Ranch consists of 32± acres, mostly irrigated, with about half a mile of blue-ribbon trout frontage on the Big Hole River. Dramatic views from the property of the Pioneer and Highland Mountains create an incredible backdrop for a fantastic day on the river. Across from the property and just up the river, State land turns into BLM and Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest, Montana’s largest National Forest. The property and these endless acres of public land are home to white-tailed deer, elk, bear, duck, geese, and other wildlife. No expense was spared when building the grand 9,322± SF, four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom home in the center of the property. Complete with custom details crafted by local artisans, the word luxury is evoked as you walk through the home with its vaulted ceilings, open floor plan, and quality building materials. Oversized windows open to stunning views of a 1± acre stocked pond, the Big Hole River, mountains, and well-thought-out outdoor living spaces. Outbuildings include a large, heated barn/workshop, 4-stall horse barn, gazebo, and greenhouse. Easily accessible, Rivers Edge Ranch is less than 1.5 miles down the road from Melrose, Montana, 30± minutes to Wise River, Montana, and its airstrip for private air travel and the same distance to Butte and its commercial airport. It is easy to imagine spending your days fishing on this property while being a stone’s throw away from amenities and airports. Whether you are looking for a fishing getaway or a vacation property offered turnkey near trailheads and public land, Rivers Edge Ranch is for you. The property offers incredible views of the surrounding mountain ranges and epic Big Hole River frontage. The Big Hole River is one of the most famous and productive areas for wild trout fishing in the lower 48 states. Few locations combine this level of world-class recreation, scenery, and investment opportunity right along trout water. You may be looking for fishing, hunting, or just getting away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Whichever it is, Rivers Edge Ranch is calling your name.
