Big Creek Ranch Sells for $39.9 million

Former American Protein CEO Tommy Bagwell acquired Colorado’s 4,850-acre Big Creek Ranch for $39.9 million. Bagwell purchased the land from Texas’s La Mantia family as a legacy investment. A conservation easement is in place on approximately 1,980 acres. Improvements include an eight-bedroom, 10,000-square-foot main residence, a 3,000 square-foot ranch manager’s home, a shop, corrals, and livestock barn. Approximately 80 percent of the land abuts the Routt National Forest. The property, named for a six-mile trout stream that runs through it, sits a few miles north of Steamboat Springs and is a prime location for big game hunting and outstanding fishing. The Continental Divide is the Big Creek’s source, with smaller streams feeding Big Creek’s plentiful flow. Christy Belton of Ranch & Resort Realty represented the sellers. Brian Hartley and Alex Maher of Live Water Properties represented the buyer. Read more HERE.
