About None Township Road 723
Stunning ranch set in Alberta’s heartland. This highly functional ranch operation is a wonderful investment with ample upside and opportunity. Located approximately 3 hours north of Edmonton, the Lazy W Ranch runs 400 cow-calf pairs across 11 deeded titles, 4 grazing leases and 2 farm development leases. The ranch is self-sustaining with sufficient hay production to feed the herd and carryovers through the winter. There is no need to buy hay with the current set up.
The ranch is set up to allow for a seasonal and rotational grazing program, which maximizes herd efficiency and allows ample grazing fodder and hay production. A portion of the hay lands abuts up to Slave Lake, which creates highly fertile soil conditions.
The ranch is a mixture of open pasture, hay lands and thick timber pockets. The aspen and poplar coverage on the various titles creates shelter belts for wintering cattle and wildlife. Large portions of the ranch are contiguous permitting for easy farming and easy transport of livestock from one area of the ranch to the next.
In the main farmyard is the immaculate equestrian building, perfect for equestrian and rodeo pursuits. This structure is full of utility and could easily be converted into a calving barn in the spring. There is a front barn within the equestrian center. The building has cement flooring within floor radiant heating. An outdoor wood boiler heats the building. All walls are insulated ensuring the building retains the heat on cold winter days. The building is fed adequate water by a drilled well. This well also feeds the cattle handling infrastructure outside and the upper pasture.
Included with the ranch, at the advertised price, is a over 4000 sq ft executive home. This home was custom built (2014) and offers an amalgamation country charm and elegance. The home is heated with in-floor radiant heating and sits on a concrete slab. As you enter into the home, there is a large boot room with individual coat racks to hang and store muddy work wear. This means no tracking dirt throughout the remainder of the home. As you walk into the great room, you are greeted by a large expanse. The home has high vaulted ceilings with a grand, rustic stone fireplace, which ascends from floor to ceiling. This is a cozy and comforting place to sit and relax after a long day on the range.
Off this living room is the stunning kitchen. With granite counter tops and custom cabinetry this country kitchen combines functionality with beauty. Over the sink is a large window where you can watch the herds of elk roll by on the rolling hills outside. The kitchen is completed with stainless steel appliances and ample storage space. Beside the kitchen is a large dining room crowned by a barn wood cross beam. Large windows permit the sun to bask the dining room in warm sunlight throughout the day.
Heading upstairs we enter the master bedroom with en-suite. As the only bedroom on the upper level, it is very quiet and private. The en-suite is complete with a large bath
