At the end of this country road, the Rocky Mountain ranch of your dreams awaits. This equestrian paradise boasts over 35 flat acres, with 9 pastures irrigated by premium water rights. A fly-fisher's fantasy, this property features nearly 2/3 of a mile of frontage to the Eagle River, with private fishing access to big, beautiful Australian Brown and Rainbow trout. Fully stocked with all the equipment and amenities of a turn-key ranching operation, this property is ideal for income-producing activity or the ultimate private getaway. With a full size indoor arena, outdoor arena, round pen, 10-stall heated barn, 20-saddle tack room, wash rack and breeding rack, hay barn & tractor barn, and numerous out-buildings, everything you need for your animals is at your fingertips. The in-ground irrigation system reaches nearly every acre and fills heated waterers in every pasture. The caretakers unit has been lovingly cared for and appointed, and is an ideal dwelling if the new owner plans to build their dream home along the banks of the Eagle River. No need to trailer your horses, as this gated subdivision has private access to hundreds of miles of trail-riding on BLM land and countless mountain meadows and valleys to explore nearby. With all the privacy of this Eagle County ranching oasis, it's easy to forget you're mere minutes from your next restock at Costco & the idyllic mountain towns of Eagle and Gypsum. Easy access to the airport and interstate, and 30 minutes to skiing at Beaver Creek & Vail.
There’s perhaps no other community in the entire valley that has evolved and grown as much as Gypsum has in recent years. Home to the Eagle County Regional Airport, Gypsum is not only easily accessible from just about anywhere, its ultra downvalley location also provides convenient access to Glenwood Springs and Aspen. Gypsum’s motto is to “Live, Work, Play & Be Healthy.” Its outdoor recreational amenities and affordability make it an easy motto for residents to live up to. The public Gypsum Creek Golf Course has also created a community hotspot just outside of town, where it’s common to find locals soaking in the views from the beautiful deck at the clubhouse’s restaurant, The Gypsum Creek Grill, on any summer afternoon. Like its neighbor Eagle to the east, Gypsum’s lower elevation equates to fewer snow days. You could hit the slopes in Vail or Beaver Creek — a little more than 30 minutes away — and be home in time for an afternoon ride on your mountain bike or 9 holes at the Gypsum Creek Golf Club. The Gypsum Recreation Center underwent more facility upgrades in 2018 after just 11 years since it was built. The Rec Center is one of the town’s most exciting hubs. It offers a gymnastics facility, basketball courts, a state-of-the-art fitness facility, a swimming pool that includes lap lanes as well as a lazy river and waterslide for the kids, yoga studio/fitness room, spinning classes and much more. Gypsum is also home to one of the valley’s two public high schools, Eagle Valley High School. Historic single-family homes surround the immediate town center, while newer construction is available in several developments around Gypsum Creek and the airport. If value, accessibility and affordability aren’t enough, the fact that Gypsum is home to a Costco helps it score even higher on the convenience scale.
