#5      35000 Highway 550, Montrose, Colorado is listed for sale at $9,500,000.



The time has come to pass on the legacy that is Centennial Ranch. Encompassing 392+ acres, 97 of which are irrigated via three ditches, the ranch  main home with 4 bedrooms, 6 baths and 6,497 sq.ft. sits along one half mile of private frontage on the pristine Uncompahgre River. The crown jewel of the ranch is Dashwood House, a warm, welcoming and informal, yet elegant timber-frame masterpiece. Featured in Architectural Digest, its 6,497 square feet include the great room with its towering timber ceilings, formal dining room, exquisite kitchen, three bedroom suites, an office and much more. A separate caretakers apartment over the garage is an added bonus. Accenting the timber-frame is the stunning iron work each piece of which was custom designed and hand forged for its place and function by blacksmiths across the nation. A working cattle ranch, Centennial also includes an iconic timber frame barn using posts and beams salvaged from the Royal Typewriter Company's plant built in 1907. Custom iron work again accents the stall, feed and tack room doors as well as equipment hooks. The Line Cabin harkens back to the days on the huge cattle ranches when the cowboys had to ride for days to check fences. Those cabins offered welcomed overnight shelter and basic foodstuffs. Holding true to its roots, the line cabin at Centennial has no electricity or running water. Nestled along the banks of the river, it is a cherished gathering spot for family and friends alike. For the outdoorsman there is incredible fishing right out the back door. Rainbows, Cutthroats, Brook and Germans thrive in the habitat that parallels the ranch. Deer, Bald Eagles, Fox, Owls, Herron and many other birds and animals call Centennial home. More than anything, Centennial is a return to a simpler life that is fast disappearing. The ranch means spending time outside, being connected to a place and the land, responsibility and closeness with family and neighbors. It is life that follows the changing of the weather as well as the ebb and flow of the river. It is children raised doing meaningful work, experiencing an intimate connection with the land and learning to value what is truly important. It is the sound of the cowboys, horses and cows during the Fall gather, the smell of newly cut hay, the tracks of deer in the snow and the music of the river as it passes by each day.

Today's Mortgage Rates

Mortgage Rates Super Flat So Far This Week
May 22 2018, 3:09PM

After quite a bit of volatility and a move up to 7-year highs last week, mortgage rates have managed to avoid any semblance of drama so far this week.  In fact, each of the past 2 days has seen the average lender keep 30yr fixed rates perfectly in-line with Friday's latest levels.  The worst that could be said of these rates is that they're very close to last week's highs. 

The second worst thing that could be said of these rates is that they're the latest in a series of gradual moves higher over the past few years.  The general expectation is that rates can continue to move higher as long as the economy continues to tolerate higher borrowing costs.  Mortgage lenders know that we are now in a rising rate environment.  That means they're less likely to offer huge improvements on rate sheets unless we see a sustained and substantial improvement in bond market levels.  Until that kind of improvement shows up (we'll definitely be talking about it when it happens), it makes sense to remain defensive in terms of locking vs floating.
