The founder of Montana Silversmiths bought the property in 2005 from Mel Gibson.
In 2005, Mel Gibson made news when he sold Beartooth Ranch to his Montana neighbors Pam and Kent Williams in a handshake deal. Now, the founders of Montana Silversmiths have put the renowned purebred cattle operation back on the market for close to $30 million.
Beartooth Ranch’s location in Montana’s Stillwater Valley is one of the reasons they purchased the property from Gibson in the first place.
“The center of the ranch lies in the valley floor and consists of hundreds of acres of productive irrigated meadows and four miles of protected riparian corridor along the Stillwater River punctuated by multiple small spring creeks that provide open water year-round,” writes realtor Randy C. Shelton on the listing website. “Adjacent to this rich central corridor, the ranch runs up through the breaks and pine foothills on both sides of the valley to offer huge expanses of lush, well-watered summer pastures and hundreds of acres of improved pastures.”
The property features two homes: a main residence built in 1949 comprising more than 5,000 square feet, and an 1,100-square-foot guest house. Additional facilities include a ranch office, indoor arena, shop building, show barn, small show barn, machine shed, lower tack room, new tack shed, cattle facility, and hay barn, as well as two garages and grain bins.
