Title: 160-acres Blake Sheep Ranch
Description: One of the lowest priced 80-acre tracts ($249/acre) we have available!
County/State: Sweetwater County/Wyoming
Price: $19,920 ($249/ac) with $440 down and the balance of $19,480 payable at $194/mo (no credit checks and no prepayment penalties).
Legal: E1/2 SW1/4 SEC 31 T22N R96W, Sweetwater County, WY (Geman 139)
Access/Roads: This property is located in the checkerboard area (meaning alternate sections owned by private and the federal government) and access is per long standing BLM (Bureau of Land Management) policies (meaning private owners can cross BLM land to get to private property but the public can’t cross private lands to get to BLM property). An actual road, however, might or might not exist at this time.
Mineral Rights: As with most oil producing states the mineral rights have been owned by the exploration companies for many years but a landowner would receive some form of compensation if wells were ever drilled.
Surveys: All sections were surveyed by the federal government at some time in the past but private surveys for individual 160-acre tracts have not been completed.
Property Taxes: Approximately $80 annually
Zoning/Usage: The zoning is basically “agricultural” (residences are forbidden without receiving a zone change, which is problematic) and if addition uses are anticipated you should contact the Sweetwater County Planning and Zoning Dept. (307-872-3914).
Improvements: This is raw, undeveloped land and no improvements or homeowner services of any nature are being represented.
Directions: From Rock Springs, Wyoming drive east on I-80 approximately 40-miles and turn off to the north on Tipton Road (Exit 158); proceed north on this county road approximately 12-miles (to where the ranch begins) and refer to the parcel map wherein the arrow points directly to the parcel. Each square on the map represents one square mile (thus the parcel for sale might be located beyond the 12 miles).
