Engwis Ranch

5,546 +/- Acres    ·    Sweet Grass County, Big Timber, MT    ·    $19,500,000

Located along 3.5± miles of one of the world’s greatest fly fishing rivers is the Engwis Ranch. Positioned conveniently between the towns of Livingston and Big Timber, the ranch’s 5,546± diversified acres have been managed meticulously for the past 37 years, enhancing both wildlife and range productivity.

From its northern boundary, the ranch feathers down toward the famous Yellowstone River. Multiple coulées and drainages lined with cottonwood, aspen and willow trees serve as excellent wildlife corridors. As the ranch drops in elevation, the lush rolling grasslands and meadows splinter into productive pivot irrigated fields. Then onward to the rich riparian zone teaming with a multitude of birds and big game. The river bottom or “riparian area” is a forest of mature cottonwood trees and small juniper. The thick grass provides a nursery in the spring and summer months for a myriad of nesting birds, waterfowl and does birthing their fawns. Watch where you step. But, do keep stepping. Next stop, the mighty Yellowstone River and blue-ribbon fishing.

The ranch is surrounded by “Big Sky” views in all directions. The Gallatin Mountains to the West, the Absaroka/Beartooth range to the south and the Crazy Mountains to the North. As the seasons change so do the breathtaking vistas.

Terrain: Yellowstone River Ranch offers breathtaking views of the river and never ending vistas of the Absaroka, Beartooth and Crazy Mountain ranges.

Habitat: The diversity of habitat lures abundant wildlife including antelope, deer (whitetail and mule), black bears, bobcats, various game birds, pelicans, ospreys, sandhill cranes, blue herons, migratory songbirds, great horned owls, wild turkeys, bald eagles, golden eagles and other raptors of all kinds.

Not enough? The “Blue Ribbon” Yellowstone River teems with wild trophy trout!

Improvements: If you have been searching for a dream Montana ranch for sale, look no further. Welcome to Engwis Ranch. Within a one-half mile walk from the main residence is a newly-constructed indoor riding arena and attached guest house.
