There are many luxury ranches for sale in Wyoming, but buyers would be hard pressed to find one offering the charmed, off-the-grid living promised by Shaw Ranch and its remote log cabin mansion.
Located in Cora, Wyoming, at the foot of the Wind River Range, Shaw Ranch features an extensive backup generator system, water rights from nearby New Fork Lake and six plots across 230 acres.
It’s an ideal property for a luxury family compound secluded from the chaos of the world.
With irrigated land, a 15-acre homestead with agricultural status and an allowance for 108 animal units, the private Shaw Ranch has the potential for sustainable food growing and livestock maintenance, all while reaping the related Wyoming tax benefits.
Surrounded by thousands of acres of public land and accessed by its own private road, Shaw Ranch allows for a multi-family compound in Wyoming that is far from any significant population density. A vault/safe room in the basement of its rural luxury home provides added protection.
Despite all its survival readiness, the 8,600-square-foot home for sale at Shaw Ranch still offers a plethora of modern amenities and Western-chic style across its four bedrooms, five bathrooms, great room, dining room, office, home theater and six-car heated garage/shop.
Private Comfort and Entertainment
While it would be hard for owners to tire of the Wind River Mountain views from its vaulted-ceiling great room, the Pioneer dovetail luxury log home at Shaw Ranch offers plenty to keep families comfortable and entertained.
The home theater and game room features a 137-inch screen with 1,500 watts of surround sound and a wet bar, while an adjacent exercise room can help residents keep up their active lifestyles.
In the spacious open kitchen, a Sub-Zero refrigerator and two Sub-Zero refrigerated drawers offer plenty of storage space for preserving food. Meanwhile, a 54-inch stainless-steel Viking gas stove and oven enable professionally cooked meals for several people.
Throughout the log mansion, a Vantage smart home system controls all lighting while a sound system runs through all rooms. A sophisticated alarm system spans all doors, motion sensors, CO sensors, smoke detectors, heat detectors, and video cameras in the front, back and great room.
A Powerful Generator and Electricity to All Lots
The 35-kilowatt backup generator at Shaw Ranch is fueled by eight 1,000-gallon propane tanks, which are buried and disguised by surrounding bushes, boulders and river rock.
Located in the garage/shop, the generator starts in 15 seconds and sends 100 amps of power to prioritized electrical demand within 30 seconds. Electric and phone lines have also been run to all six lots, allowing for a truly connected multi-family compound.
A Sophisticated Safe Room
Located in the basement of the Shaw Ranch’s luxury log home, a nine-foot-tall vault/safe room is outfitted with a telephone, alarm controller and central air system for comfort. Protected by a two-foot-thick rebar system, the room boasts custom natural cherry cabinets on two walls, legal filing drawers and custom gun cabinets.
Horse-Riding Arena and Barn
For equestrians, this Wyoming luxury ranch features a beautiful 200′ by 100′ horse-riding arena, while a large barn can accommodate up to five horses in individual 15’ by 15’ stalls featuring corner waterers and drop feeders from the hay loft.
The well-equipped barn is also outfitted to hold large farming equipment such as a John Deere tractor, with 16’W x 11’H garage doors and a 19’ by 48’ storage area behind the stalls.
With its ability to provide off-the-grid access to electricity, water, agriculture and livestock, as well as a wealth of amenities, entertainment options and expansive views, the Shaw Ranch offers a stunning-yet-practical setting for a remote, luxury family compound.
