Wyoming Black Hills Living
There’s a piece of the American West that remains nearly untouched. Spacious. Quiet. Time honoring. Serene. Welcome to wide open Wyoming. This captivating jewel of the west is ready to bring your vision of a Black Hills lifestyle to life. What this means is up to you. From horseback riding, hiking, fishing and hunting, to developing the approved golf course and homesites, to simply owning your own private Black Hills estate, you can dream and imagine as far as the panoramic, breathtaking views will take you.
The property is ready for development with the initial infrastructure in place. From icon landscape to awe-inspiring views, the property/ownership concepts are three-fold: The mountain-top, complete with planned golf course, the mountain-side lots, and the two exquisite move-in ready homes.
The original vision was a world class golf development of estate homes centered around incredible topography, terrain, forests, cliffs, meadows, mesas and endless views. The current ownership has invested millions of dollars in water wells, roads, grading, planning, permits and construction.
Golf Course Design
Designed for a setting over 1,000 feet above the valley floor, this Hills-Forrest-Smith championship golf course is sure to garner a “best of” rating from discerning golfers. With an eye toward preserving the high meadows and pine forests while accentuating the sheer rock cliff faces, the Arthur Hills design team took full advantage of the natural landscape with their beautiful and strategic routing. Clinging to the edges of the plateau, its fairways and greens reveal amazing panoramic vistas, while the absence of residences ensures that members and guests will enjoy golf in its purest form.
The physical features that compose the property include the bedrock rim, which generally ranges from 5,356 to 5,450 high. The soil resulting from this underlying geology is comprised of Lakota, Sundance, and Gypsum Spring formations. Specifically, the site is located along both sides of the Salt Creek drainage, flanked with rolling hills, hidden meadows and dramatic rim rock ledges.
The elevation change over the entire property is approximately 950, with the highest point at 5,659 along the primary ridgeline. This ridgeline runs alongside the eastern portion of the property, where the rolling hillside offers excellent views in all directions, particularly southward towards the Salt Creek and Beaver Creek corridors. The land was historically used as cattle and horse range with hay production and logging.
The property is located 6 miles north of Newcastle, Wyoming, along Hwy 85 and Hwy 16. The property is centrally located to numerous Black Hills destinations such as Mount Rushmore and Deadwood, SD. Mondell Field Airfield is able to accommodate private aircraft with its 5,310 x 75 concrete runway. The Rapid City, South Dakota, Regional Airport is approximately 80 miles away with nonstop commercial flights to numerous large cities across the country.
The habitat is home to elk, mule deer, pronghorn antelope, and turkey. The east side of the property touches 1,600 acres of public land.
Wyoming supports land ownership. A substantial portion of the property is under agriculture exemption.
All owned minerals will convey with an acceptable offer. Contact broker for further details.
