Meadow, UT | 240 Acres | $495,000
The Searle Ranch is owned by a Utah family who purchased the property to build a self-sustaining home, raise their family, recreate, and access the surrounding area in the pursuit of deer, elk, lion and turkey. Surrounded by public land, the Searle Ranch epitomizes serenity and outdoor adventure. For most of us, it’s reminiscent of a scene from an old Western movie, to be able to saddle up a horse and ride for days without seeing another person. For the Searle Family, it is a part of everyday life on their 240-acre ranch in the heart of scenic Central Utah. Enjoy unlimited ATV and horseback exploration, fishing for rainbow trout, or hunting for mule deer, elk, coyote, rabbit, wild turkeys and mountain lion. Ask Karl Malone, who proudly displays in his Salt Lake home, an eight-foot mountain lion shot on this very ranch. The property also boasts a rustic home built by the Searles, which is completely off the grid. The 1956 sq. ft. home, built in 1986, has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths sitting on 2 levels with a partial basement and a large 217 sq. ft. deck. It is completely self-sufficient, even though it is off the grid. The Ranch is totally surrounded by public land including the BLM/Wildlife Management and Fishlake National Forest thus creating a perpetual buffer from neighbors. Three springs run year round and supply water and electricity for the home. A turbine powered hydro-electric system provides power for the home and also feed a pond stocked with trout. The system is backed up by solar panels and a generator. The springs also provide irrigation for 4 acres of pasture that will sustain six horses through the summer. The entire property is fenced and has additional fencing to keep animals on the pasture and away from the house. The Searle Ranch is a great hunting location. The DWR provides a yearly Land Owner Turkey permit. There are elk and deer on the property which is in the southern region for Mule deer and in the Pahvant Limited Entry for Elk.
