Property Details —
2,560 Acres of Privacy
James Family Ranch is a one-of-a-kind, totally secluded and private 2,560 acre Trophy Ranch with a large world-class timber frame log house.
The Okanagan Highlands
The Ranch is located in the Okanagan Highlands of northern Washington State, approximately 20 miles south of the Canadian Border and just 10 miles southwest of Tonasket.
Omak Airport Proximity
The Omak Airport is located just 20 minutes to the south with a 4,600 foot long precision approach runway landing strip suitable for most jet planes.
What makes the property unique compared to most large ranches is that it shares a 5 mile border on the west side of the property with the Sinlahikin Valley. This is the deepest glacial-carved valley in the state of Washington. This recreational area of approximately 25,000 acres is state-owned and includes 4 major lakes know for some of the best trout fishing in the Northwest.
Acres of Absolute Wilderness
West of the Sinlahikin Valley area hundreds of thousands of acres of absolute wilderness including the Okanogan National Forest, the Pasayten Wilderness and the North Cascade National Park, which make up one of the largest areas of forest and wilderness land in the lower 48 states.
Within the ranch property are two year round streams, several year round springs, ten large ponds and a dozen wells. Water is always present on the property.
Given the availability of water, the property boasts large permanent annual wildlife including: moose, elk, whitetail deer, mule deer, big horn sheep, black bears, cougars, grouse, quail, wild turkeys and many other smaller animal and bird species.
For residential structures, there is a caretaker manager house at the entrance gate of the ranch and an outstanding 7,600 square foot timber frame log house made of large spruce structural beams and BC douglas fir supporting logs.
The craftsmanship of the main house has spared no expense with imported and distressed vintage east coast oak and hickory wood flooring and rustically aged local Tamarack Larch barn board wood used for the drawers and cabinets throughout the structure.
The Main Cabin
Within the main cabin there is a large living area and fireplace, dining room with a moose, elk and deer antler chandelier and an open kitchen concept with granite countertops featuring top-of-the-line appliances. Also within the main house are 4 bedrooms, multiple bathrooms and a downstairs media room for additional entertaining and movie nights.
The Guest House
Next to the main house is a large guest house with a separate kitchen, bedroom and living space with similar quality built-out features as the main house.
What is probably most impressive about the James Family Ranch is that the property is totally private with 360 degree unobstructed views. Here the utilities are buried underground and all distant neighbors that could have obscured views have been acquired. Creating this total privacy took years to strategically position and assemble.
