Telluride Real Estate News: Snow Drift Ranch

In his weekly column, (narratives and video), Telluride Real Estate News, Robert Stenhammer leverages his extensive knowledge of market factors (global, national, and regional) and the Telluride lifestyle to bring readers fresh, informative – and insider – real estate news to use today.

This week, Robert’s focus is on an iconic property of unspoiled beauty in the Telluride region, arguably in North America. The Snow Drift Ranch on Dallas Divide is a 10,000-square-foot compound that sits on 138 acres. The nearest full-time neighbor is miles away; the closest, who lives to the south, is a former tie-salesman-made-good, namely, Ralph Lauren. Ralph and his wife Ricky bought the spread in 1982. Scenes from the western classic True Grit, starring John Wayne, were filmed on that property. Snow Drift overlooks the Lauren’s world-famous Double RL Ranch and the Sneffels/Cimarron mountain ranges.

“The Telluride region has no shortage of unique properties. This week we look at my very special listing: Snow Drift Ranch. Colorado Life Magazine (October 2016) named Snow Drift Ranch on Dallas Divide the #1 location in the state to view autumn colors. The home on the Snow Drift Ranch, the ultimate sustainable property, can be on or off the grid and, in addition to breathtaking views, the property offers private elk and deer hunting. Two of the 35 acre lots can be built on in future. Perfect for a family or corporate retreat.”
