In the heart of the Central Washington Cle Elum Recreational area lays a private breathtaking 80-acre property of prime southwestern exposure named The Flying M Ranch that is truly one of a kind.
The Ranch and Vineyard is located just 1.5 hours from the greater Seattle area nestled in the Eastern Cascade Mountain range of Teanaway Valley just 4.7 miles east of the historic mining and timber community of Cle Elum in Kittitas County.
On the property Deer, Elk, Coyotes, Cougar, Wild Turkey and other wildlife are common visual occurrences. The wildlife can be viewed year-round with the four separate and distinctive seasons totaling approximately 300 days of annual sunshine.
One of the greatest features of significant value to this property is the 292 Acre Feet of Senior Water Rights granted in 1883. Today the water rights are utilized with its own 40 horse power pump located directly in the Teanaway River 1 mile to the East. Water is pumped via pipeline to a large storage reservoir 100 feet by 300 feet in length; and 17 feet deep holding an amazing 1.3 million gallons of water. This private reservoir, stocked with healthy and beautiful rainbow trout, is also used as a pristine swimming area in the summer months.
This protected water supply and state of the art irrigation system has solar powered wireless moisture sensors, GPS and guided pivotal sprinklers designed to produce World Class quality Timothy Hay which is temporarily stored in the onsite hay barn and then exported to Japan. The water supply is also used to irrigate the Orchards of Apples, Cherries, Peaches, Plums and Pears. The Vineyard slopes perfectly to the southwest and produces a wide variety of classic wine grapes
including Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris for whites; and Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc and Pinot Meunier for Reds. The garden and vineyards also have a solar automated and controlled drip irrigation system and outbuilding for storage.
The 80-acre property is divided into six Lots. The largest being 54 acres for Timothy Hay production; and Five parcels of 3 to 6 acres for residential lots which all have approved well permits as well as access roads and 3-phase electrical power. One of the residential lots is currently developed with a home consisting of 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, a great room, kitchenette and a large view deck for entertaining. Next to this structure is a 3-bedroom guest house as well as covered RV parking and a large garage for storing equipment and machinery.
This property is also a central hub for many local recreational activities and social gatherings. Recreational activities include hiking, hunting, fishing in the nearby Teanaway River and Blue-Ribbon Yakima River; as well as skiing and snowmobiling in the Cascade Mountains. Plus, fine dining and Golfing at 3 Championship rated 18-hole courses within nearby Suncadia Resort.
There is also the horseback “ride out” trail system that leads directly from The Flying M Ranch through adjacent Masterson Ranch to the Teanaway Community Forest and Wenatchee National Forest. This immediate area to the north consists of 53,000 acres of trails, stunning views and wildlife all within protected public lands offering, some say, the best trail riding in the West to use directly from your future backyard. Come and see this turnkey gentleman’s farm, walk amongst the fields of wild flowers and make this wonderland into your own dream getaway property.
