Shalimar Ranch, a Nebraska ranch property
Current Sale Price: $4.4 Million


There are three wonderfully stuccoed buildings on the premises: an historic big and beautiful structurally sound barn, a 4-5 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath two-story bigger home, and a two-story 3 bedroom, 2 bath smaller home with a beautifully finished basement. Both homes are in excellent shape. As well, there is a Morton-type building that is a 48' by 48' shop. It is insulated and heated, has a 16'+ ceiling and many features including a tool and parts room, installed drill press, vice, grinder, etc. with a bathroom on the first floor, and storage and a possible bedroom on the second floor. The ranch also has a 24' by 60' "machine shed" west of the smaller house and a "calving shed" in close approximation to the barn. There is also a newly remodeled 4 bed and full kitchen/bathroom "bunk house" north across the creek from the rest of the buildings.

Behind the barn are 8 pens, an alley with a crowding tub, live chutes and a squeeze chute. Neighbors have often remarked that it is a terrific facility for working cattle. This area behind the barn has the capacity to work approximately 1,000 steers or 600 cows.

All fences are tight and incredibly maintained, being constantly repaired and/or replaced with braces, posts and wiring. This and other details can be confirmed by the statement made by Bruce Scheopner of Associated Brokers of Chadron after looking over the property:

"The property is to be considered in excellent condition. The stewardship that is evident is to be highly commended. Both the structures and the land have benefited greatly from the care that has taken place over many years. Improvements include cross fencing, livestock water pipeline, irrigation ditches and canals, and increased forage and grass production. It is because of this stewardship that the property would command a premium price if placed on the market."
