Sited along a quiet country lane in the Polecat Creek drainage Northeast of Powell, Wyoming, lies a tremendous small hay, cattle & horse ranch. This 241 +/- acre ranch consists of approximately 115 acres of irrigated and sub irrigated hay fields & pasture with the balance in native range and excellent wildlife habitat. The deer & pheasant populations attest to the quality and diversity of the habitat. The hay fields and pastures are separated by two spring fed, tree lined ravines for cover, feed and year around water for livestock and wildlife. In addition, the ranch has an irrigation canal that traverses through the ranch with 4 head gates directly off the canal for irrigating the fields and pastures via gated pipe, concrete ditch and dirt ditches. The property borders a huge block of public land that allows one to ride, hike and hunt. This setting also provides for fantastic privacy with only a few neighbors in the entire valley. The large amount of trees on the ranch, which attract and hold wildlife, also create an excellent property for calving. Powell is a short 15 minute drive for services and supplies. The improvements, built in 2006 & 2007 are all top grade, and are as shiny and clean as the ranch land.
The 4 bedroom 2.5 bath home of 2800 Sq.Ft. has maintenance free siding and an anodized metal roof, vaulted ceilings, hickory and tile floors, hand peeled log accents, lots of blue pine trim, hickory kitchen cabinets, stainless steel appliances, very bright and open living area, very large master bedroom with patio doors leading to the stamped concrete full length covered patio. The amount of interior wood provides a very warm, inviting and comfortable atmosphere, right down to the large stone fireplace with wood burning insert and hand peeled log mantle. On the well kept grounds, is a 2400 sq.ft. foam insulated shop building with 2 drive through doors and 2 floor drains, heated with a wood stove and propane wall furnace. Out back are some extremely well laid out horse facilities, a 2600 sq.ft. 4 stall barn, hay storage and tack & grain rooms. The 4 stalls open on the south side to 4 runs that are welded steel, an outdoor arena and round pen for training and exercise, an alley to the pasture, paddocks and corrals with a loafing shed. All the livestock facilities at the barn are either welded steel or cross type panels with railroad tie posts for durability. There are also some cattle handling facilities down near the county maintained gravel access road.
Seldom do we see a very well maintained, clean and well set up ranch property such as the Wilkerson Ranch. It will make whoever values excellent constructed home and facilities, extremely well designed, maintained with pride of ownership, on a great, easy to operate irrigated ranch with great wildlife habitat, proud to own. The spring fed ravines could certainly be enhanced to provide ponding for fish and more wildlife retention and attraction. Priced at $1,098,800.
