The very private oasis is complete with underground irrigation and offers a tranquil pond, large gardens, orchard, paths to quiet retreats, fire pit by Cattle Creek, adjacent to thousands of acres of the Fisher Creek BLM area, upper and lower horse pastures and more!
Fisher Creek Farm is a great place to live in all 4 seasons of the year. Spring, Summer or Fall are wonderful to ride horses on the adjacent public land in the mountains. The Fisher Creek area is such a wonderful place for hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, cross-country skiing, and snow-shoeing with numerous trails to explore and enjoy the beautiful views. Ride your horse right to thousands of acres of wilderness directly out the driveway. It’s only a 1/2 hour trailer ride to Basalt Mountain and Marion Gulch, and about an hour to Dinkle Lake/Hay Park/Thomas Lakes area, and Capital Lake trail for great mountain riding on miles and miles of awesome trails.
In the summer, the gardens produce wonderful organic vegetable and fruit, the best red raspberries you’ll ever taste and because of it’s proximity to the creek, it’s usually a little cooler than in town.
In the fall, the apple trees are abundant, beautiful fall colors on the variety of trees on the property and surrounding area and again, riding/hiking etc. up Fisher Creek is the best part.
In the winter, after a snow storm, go cross-country skiing or snowshoeing right out your door.
The barn is just the right size for storing a year’s worth of hay for 2 horses with room to spare for the tractor and other lawn and garden supplies. The pasture is a south facing slope so it dries up faster than most. The track leading to the upper pasture and the upper pasture allowed for more grazing in the summer months.
