Large Montana Ranch Property Asks $132 Million
January 03, 2012 - Montana
A 123,000-acre ranch property in Montana has listed for $132.5 million. The property was assembled by the late William and Desiree Moore, co-founders of Kelly-Moore Paints, and is now owned by their estate.
Known as the Broken O Ranch, it's located about 35 miles northwest of Great Falls and has 20 miles of the Sun River running through it.
Spanning three counties, the ranch includes about 4,500 cattle as well as the largest irrigated farm in the state, which produces grain and alfalfa hay.
There's also a 10,000-square-foot main house that overlooks the river and the Rocky Mountain Front and has an indoor swimming pool.
The Moores spent more than 20 years assembling the ranch. There's trout fishing and hunting on the property, as well as about 25 houses for guest and staff. Mr. Moore died in 2004, and Mrs. Moore died in 2010.
Michael Swan of Bates Sanders Swan Land Company in Bozeman, Mont., has the listing.
