Presenting a special opportunity to acquire The Legacy at Fish Creek Ranch Preserve, the original homestead on a southern Wyoming ranch. The Legacy homestead is situated on 35 acres, featuring a substantial and welcoming log home, vintage barn, and private pond. Located within the exclusive 4,242 acre Fish Creek Ranch Preserve, with only 14 home sites, each owner has shared access to pristine wilderness in the Medicine Bow mountains. Land Located 5 miles west of Tie Siding on the Wyoming/Colorado border, Fish Creek Ranch Preserve is 4,242 acres set against an impressive backdrop of pine and aspen covered mountains, rolling grassland, fresh cut golden hay meadows and four private ponds. The Preserve combines the best of Wyoming ranch and mountain life. This specific 35-acre property boasts pine trees, a large aspen grove, and a private pond hidden within a valley that protects it from the wind.   Improvements Nestled in pine and aspen trees timbers, the Legacy’s centerpiece, a 4,878 square foot custom lodgepole home built in 1969, harvested from the surrounding forest and traditionally constructed with hand-peeled logs, saddle notched corners and chinking, has 4 bedrooms, 4 baths, and warm inviting living and dining rooms. The master bedroom has a private gas fireplace and the library/entertainment room with built-in bookshelves boasts a gas stove and enjoys an abundance of southern natural light.  A 1930’s log barn with 2 stalls, a tack room, a horse washing station, and a connected circle corral is a horse lover’s haven.  A 4-car garage includes built-in private guest quarters with a full kitchen. There is ample basement storage and workbench space for hobbyists. Children will spend hours in the log playhouse, complete with a loft. Enjoy morning big-sky sunrises on the east facing front deck in an Adirondack chair and evening family dinners and late-night hot tubbing surrounded by trees on the west deck. Recreation Fish Creek Ranch Preserve has an abundance of recreational opportunities including trout fishing in private stocked ponds, amazing mountain biking, winter ice skating, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing.  Dedicated equestrian and hiking trails meander the Preserve and lead to majestic views of Diamond Peak within Roosevelt National Forest. Rock outcrops beckon to be climbed and mastered. The ranch provides community horses for owners and guests, as well as boarding facilities for privately-owned horses.  Whitetail deer, moose, antelope, bald and golden eagles are frequently sighted. In addition, The Preserve has coveted adjacent access to Roosevelt National Forest for hunting, fishing, hiking, and camping.   General Operations Fish Creek Ranch Preserve is a covenant-controlled community developed in 1996.  The homeowner’s association oversees the operations and finances of the Preserve.  A full time ranch manager cares for the 3,752 acres of common area, a community barn and horses trails, ponds, fences, gates, trash, snow plow, wildlife management and roads ensuring year round access. All homes and structures meet design review standards to maintain the western character of the Preserve. Region & Climate Set at an elevation ranging from 8,000 to 8,620 feet, the Preserve enjoys southern Wyoming’s complimentary four seasons.  Spring rains bring green grasses and new wildlife, sunny summer days are cooled by dark star-filled skies, crisp fall mornings and long days are ideal for fly fishing, and snow blanketed winter days are a chance to snowshoe or catch up on a favorite book.  The Preserve is conveniently located to catch a Wyoming Cowboy fall football game, the Laramie Jubilee Days rodeo, or a quick trip to the Snowy Range Ski area and snowmobiling in the Medicine Bow Mountains. History Tie Siding is named for the 19th century lumberjacks (tie hacks) who harvested trees for the railroad ties that accelerated western expansion.  The Legacy at Fish Creek Ranch Preserve is the original homestead that now shares the ranch with thirteen other western enthusiasts. Location Fish Creek Ranch Preserve is 18 miles south of Laramie, home of the University of Wyoming, and seven miles from the northern Colorado border and 47 miles from Fort Collins, Colorado.  The Medicine Bow mountains and Snowy Range Ski area is less than an hour to the west. Denver International Airport (DEN) is less than two hours to the south.
