Phil Phillips? Sportsman's Paradise, Black Canyon of the Gunnison Estate
Located approximately 15 minutes from downtown Montrose, Colo., outdoor hunting celebrity and television host Phil Phillips? private 35-acre residence and secluded hunting retreat is now available. His 30-year-plus hunting, guiding and outdoor experience is reflected in this carefully selected end-of-the-road custom hideaway nestled in the oak brush and rimrock canyons and woven around irrigated alfafa fields drawing elk, mule and turkey and the occasional black bear, all backing up to a large, private ranch holding.
The entrance to the world-famous Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park and access to the world-class flyfishing of the Gunnison River is only a few miles away with commercial-air access, great dining and even Walmart and an array of shops within 20 minutes in downtown Montrose, voted the 2013 All American City of the Year. Or venture 40 minutes in the opposite direction and visit the Grand Mesa?the world?s largest flat-top mountain?or the Blue Mesa, the state?s largest reservoir, producing trophy rainbow and brown trout, 50-pound lake trout and Kokanee salmon. In addition to great hunting and fishing, Colorado?s Western Slope holds a golfer?s Gem?The Bridges of Montrose?a Jack Nicklaus-designed public course between Grand Junction and Telluride.
