Historic Emerald Ridge Ranch offered for $8.95M

Steamboat Springs — The 780-acre Emerald Ridge Ranch, the largest remaining property in close proximity to Steamboat’s southern city limits, is being offered for sale for the first time in its history at $8.95 million. The entrance to the property is 3.5 miles south of Mount Werner Road, and the acreage begins west of Routt County Road 14. The ranch’s original owner is the Lufkin family, which, at one time, owned of most of the South Valley, according to broker Ren Martyn of Steamboat Sotheby’s International Realty. Herbert C. Lufkin established the property in 1919 and sold it to his son, Don Lufkin, in the 1950s, who, in turn, sold it to his nephew, Doug Scott, in 1994. Scott still owns the property, along with his sons, through an LLC. Longtime resident Don Lufkin was a Routt County icon, rancher, philanthropist and United States Navy veteran who died in 2012. “There’s so much history here with this property,” Martyn said. “If that cabin could speak, it would be volumes of Routt County lore.”...more
