The luxury of owning a lot of land comes at a price, and for a recent Montana ranch deal in particular, it cost a whopping $136.25 million. According to Mansion Global, the 80,000-acre property in the Rocky Mountain West sparked a bidding war and reportedly sold after being on the market only less than a week.
“Since our public release of the listing of the Climbing Arrow Ranch, we have received an extraordinary response from the market, with multiple parties stepping forth immediately,” Swan Land Company listing agent Mike Swan shared in a statement. “We can confirm that the sellers have engaged with a prospective buyer who is currently conducting their inspections of the ranch.”
If all goes well and the deal closes, this will reportedly be one of the most expensive undeveloped ranches purchased in the United States. It’s located around 30 miles outside of Bozeman, a city in the southern part of Montana. The land spans through four counties and is home to seven ranch-style houses built for the staff and caretakers of the property. Moreover, the ranch made an appearance in the 1992 movie A River Runs Through It, which is all about rural life in Montana. It stars Brad Pitt and was directed by Robert Redford.
In addition to the land and buildings, the ranch comes with 2,000 commercial Black Angus cattle, an abandoned railroad, irrigated hay meadows by the Madison River, and limestone cliffs. The area is also known for its bull elk hunting and trout fishing.
