The Flying Y Ranch sits 10 minutes Northwest of Council, Idaho, underneath Cuddy Mountain. Over a half mile of Hornet Creek frontage cuts the property down the middle, with the 60+/- acres of irrigated alfalfa fields on the NE side, and across the bridge, the ground rises up to the old home site. The home site commands impressive panoramic views and is ready to build with septic and two domestic wells already dug. Multiple residential building permits and additional splits on the two current parcels give this ranch excellent investment aspects or the ability to have many generations live and build.
The ranch gets its name from the 1,800-foot long by 100-foot wide runway that runs parallel to the creek while currently in Alfalfa; it has been in place for many decades and is registered with the FAA. The Alfalfa fields are gravity-fed off water rights from Hornet Creek, with a priority date of 1883, by underground pipe to gate pipe. Current farming averages 2-3 cuts per year and 150-170 tons annually. Turkey and Deer frequently step out of the timber and descend into the fields and creek. Additionally, multiple small ponds and springs along the tree lines and tall grass bring waterfowl and small game.
This ranch has endless possibilities, live water, expansive crop fields, and an excellent home site with the ability to build additional homes. It is close enough to town to enjoy the restaurants but far enough out to enjoy the countryside and all that it brings.
