Gwin Springs Ranch

$1,950,000 560 Acres
Property ID 2873499


The 560acre Gwin Springs Ranch is located in the Mount Bennett Hills of south central Idaho, 15 miles north of the farming community of Gooding, Idaho and an hour from the renowned Sun Valley Resort and the associated Wood River Valley communities of Ketchum, Hailey and Bellevue. Situated in its own red rock canyon, the ranch is surrounded by federal lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and features a yearround creek, four trout ponds, territorial views in all directions, and a wide open southern exposure that stretches to the horizon. A well maintained ranch compound lies in the center of the property and consists of a furnished 3,820 sq. ft. owners residence with four bedrooms and four and a half baths, modern kitchen, stone fireplace, and covered porch. Additional improvements include a furnished 1,000 sq. ft. 1 bedroom/1 bath guest cabin, a 1,700 sq. ft. horse barn, and storage and loafing sheds. Multiple solar panels and a wind turbine, all with backing from a propane generator, combine to provide reliable yearround power for the ranch compound. The property supports a dryland hay operation as well as seasonal cattle grazing in conjunction with an adjoining BLM grazing permit. Wildlife abounds on and around the ranch and includes elk, trophy mule deer, pronghorn antelope, sage grouse, pheasant, chukar partridge, and ducks and geese. The ponds are home to rainbow trout and largemouth bass which provide steady action for beginners and experienced anglers alike. The ranch comes with a game bird preserve permit from the State of Idaho allowing the owner to plant and pursue upland game birds over an extended season. In addition to various sporting pursuits, Gwin Springs is an ideal horse property offering excellent riding opportunities in the surrounding foothills and ample level ground for the addition of an outdoor arena and round pens.
