Return to Colorado Ranches

Buckskin Ranch

1,418 Acres    ·    San Miguel County, Telluride, CO    ·    $24,500,000
An incomparable recreational ranch located in one of Colorado’s most scenic settings of the Mt. Wilson massif. The main ranch house, originally designed for movie director Oliver Stone and re-envisioned by Lyle Berman, a high stakes poker maverick and entrepreneurial tycoon, is open and inviting with two-story iron buttresses creating an outdoor peaceful setting within the structure. The residence envelops 8 bedrooms including two master suites, 10 bathrooms, a private office wing, media room, formal dining room seating 16, spa with sauna, steam bath and exercise equipment. Two galleries run the length of the structure with a great room sporting a massive fireplace, wet bar and opening to an expansive outdoor living area with fire pit.

One never need leave the ranch to experience the Colorado mountain lifestyle — nearly 10 miles of trails for ATVs, mountain bikes and horseback riding; first class equestrian center (32,000 SF) with 22 horse stalls, indoor riding arena, vet hospital, tack room, live in apartment and recreational party room; an eleven-station world-class sporting clay range and three-acre trout pond teeming with trout. Other improvements include two additional homes (3 bedrooms each), a hideout cabin atop the Blue Vista portion of the ranch, guest house adjoining the main residence, equipment shed and the original homestead. A highly improved road system makes it easy to move about the ranch and excellent wells service the main residential improvements.
