The 4 Lazy J is a privately gated, 37 acre “Old West” compound that is adjacent to the world-renowned 8,500+ acre C Lazy U Guest Ranch. In the words of the home’s architect, “It looks like it was assembled over time .. .it has the history and feel of a settler’s homestead that alludes to the romance of the rugged ranching life of the 19th Century.” The western architecture combines three types of construction in order to give the compound its aged character.
To date, the 4 Lazy J is the only home in the C Lazy U guest ranch that includes a private barn and dedicated pasture for horses within the homestead. Built on the northern edge of the C Lazy U Ranch, this property lies in an emerald green meadow overlooking Willow Creek The year-round stream meanders through the property providing excellent “Orvis-Endorsed” fly fishing maintained by the C Lazy U Ranch.
The main house is approximately 7,594 square feet of extraordinary living space accompanied by an attached two car garage. The interior of the ranch home is comfortable yet stunning. A massive stone fireplace dominates the great room. A heated, screened in porch is furnished in western style and as you sit next to a roaring fire in the stone fireplace, you will enjoy breathtaking views of the Continental Divide.
There are two master bedrooms, one on the main floor and one on the second floor so that two families or multiple generations can occupy the home at one time. If you’re looking to host a house full of friends, one of the bedrooms is a bunkroom with 10 beds, 7 of which are full sized. The home is complimented by 4 ensuite bathrooms and 2 powder rooms and when entertaining a full house the 14 seat home theater and adjacent billiards room are sure to please.
