Buffalo Creek Ranch: a picturesque setting for city slicker adventures

Buffalo Creek Ranch is a picturesque 34-acre boutique agricultural ranch that sits 400 feet above the valley floor and is planted with acres of fruit and nut orchards, vineyard, and pasture. The one-of-a-kind property has three miles of rock walls, defined grass edging, and concrete stained roadways lined with more than 200 Aristocratic Flowering Pear trees. The sprawling ranch, with its ten small ponds and eight waterfalls, is nestled at the base of the magnificent Eastern Sierra amidst Northern Nevada’s oldest stand of Aspen trees. Two year-round mountain creeks run through private picnic grounds situated directly under a 90 foot converted railroad car bridge. Buffalo Creek Ranch is a brief 20 minute drive to Lake Tahoe’s South Shore.

The potential family compound estate boasts a 3,100-square-foot Tuscan style ranch house built in 2005, a guest log cabin featured in Log Home Design Ideas, and is home to an award winning eight-acre vineyard with 5,000 vines and 15-tons of annual production sold to Tahoe Ridge Winery. BCR is fabulously nostalgic from its covered bridges to its Jack Daniel’s train station with a fully restored 1923 caboose poker parlor and an expansive 5,000 square foot workshop. The ranch includes a firehouse complete with its own 1962 fire truck and a water wheel central utility building. The sprawling ranch estate was master-planned and developed over the span of a decade with a complete underground utility infrastructure including two water wells, propane tanks, underground power, telephone, cable television and internet service, and a 55 KW back-up generator.

The spectacular 1.5 acre home site can accommodate a 6,000-10,000 square foot primary estate residence and is ready to go for the new owners to design and build their dream home. The ranch is nestled at the base of the 10,000 foot snow capped Job’s Peak with a gorgeous breathtaking views of the lush Carson Valley. This truly unique property still has land yet to be developed, all in the tax-friendly state of Nevada. To own this estate is to continue a 14-year legacy of one of the most distinctive properties in the west.
