Listed at $8.475 million, the property, known as 66 Ranch, is located in an undeveloped area of ​​rural Northwest Colorado, known for big game hunting and fly fishing along the White River.

“One of the great benefits of this property is that a membership to Elk Creek Ranch will lead to a sale,” said Callahan Kelm, Project Manager and Auctioneer for Sotheby’s Concierge Auctions, responsible for the sale.

Nearby Elk Creek Ranch offers 30 miles of fly fishing along the White River and Elk Creek, with “15,000 acres reserved exclusively for members of Elk Creek.”

“This is some of the best hunting and fishing in the West,” he said.

At the heart of the 66 Ranch compound is a 7,000 square foot home built in 2013. Featuring four ensuite bedrooms, high ceilings, wide windows with mountain views, rough-hewn stone walls and rustic exposed beams.

Outbuildings and amenities include a one bedroom guesthouse, river camp, party barn, ranch store, fire pit, and four acre pond. According to the listing, 66 Ranch has over a mile of frontage along both sides of the White River, with many side channels, deep runs and pools ideal for fly fishing.

According to Kelm, one of the “best things” about the home is that the ground floor primary bedroom suite is “completely separated from the three upstairs bedrooms.”

“So far there’s been a lot of interest,” he said. “People jump in to see it.”

About a 15-minute drive from 66 Ranch, Elk Creek Ranch is a “private community where people buy in,” Kelm said. “Most members he has one acre of land.”

The membership reportedly in the sale is “a pretty big deal,” with “some of the vacant lots being sold for $2 million to $3 million,” he said.

Big game available to hunters include deer, moose, moose, antelope, mountain lions and bears.

66 Ranch is a ranch outside of Wichita, Kansas owned by 60-year-old Kevin McCoy, who lives on the ranch with his wife Christine. He purchased the land in 2011 and built the house in 2013.

“My original vision was to have a manageable gentleman’s ranch,” he said. “I loved having a place to go a little off-season when it got hot here.”

“I hunt and fish privately at 66 Ranch and was able to bring my own amenities to share with family and friends. He was chairman of the board of Elk Creek Ranch for six years.

He and his wife decided to sell because, “It’s a lot of work and our kids are now in their careers, so we can’t justify using the property the way we think it should.” “I realized it was time to simplify,” he said.

The property on County Road 8, Meeker, was sold by Daniel Carter of Mirr Ranch Group LLC for $8.9 million from August 2020 to January 2022, dropping to its current value of $8.475 million in September 2021 it was done.

66 Ranch is 7 miles from the town of Meeker and 6 miles from the airport, accessible by private jet. According to the listing, the Colorado communities of Vail, Steamboat Springs, and Aspen are all within a two-hour drive.
