Another huge ranch has hit the market through Hall and Hall. The Crazy D Ranch is located near the descriptively named town of Big Timber, Montana. The Crazy D is a big one, around 12,170 deeded acres that includes 3,600 acres of irrigated hay ground and improved pasture with the remaining land left in a native state. The Crazy D has views of the Crazy Mountains. The Crazies, according to Wikipedia, is a shortened version of "Crazy Woman Mountains" a name given them, in compliment to their original Crow name, after a woman who went insane and lived in them after her family was killed in the westward settlement movement.
Putting that grim story aside, the ranch has been a working cattle operation and can support around 500 head of mother cows. Several creeks meander through the property offering ample fishing. Wildlife on the ranch includes antelope, whitetail and mule deer, grouse, pheasant, partridge, cranes, turkey, ducks and geese. The property has room for multiple families working the ranch. Six moderately sized ranch homes dot the property. The main home is a 11,000 square-foot log cabin with five bedrooms, three family rooms, two office and a loft study. There is also an elevator and a heated three car garage and one key feature for stormy winter months, an emergency 15,000 KW generator. The home also has four fireplaces, a walk-in pantry with commercial refrigerator and food warmer, satellite TV and deluxe hot tub. Outside there is a pool for enjoying the area's short but hot summer. This ranch is listed at $22.5 million.
