The Ranches at Devil’s Thumb is a legacy property investment that is true to its name with 24 homesites ranging in size from 11 to 35 acres and all planned and designed to preserve the land’s natural terrain and water flows.

Pricing starts at $750K, and building design guidelines are intended to maintain a balance between giving property owners an opportunity for self-expression while also respecting the land. Homeowners have access to Devil’s Thumb Ranch Resort & Spa’s trails, spa, dining, and stables.

The developers have placed a premium on sustainability, and as such, only a relatively small fraction of the land is available. The intention is to preserve the remaining surroundings as wild and pristine. Responsible lighting design; landscaping that incorporates native trees, flowers, and ornamental grasses; and the use of solar in building designs are all part of The Ranches vision.

The Ranches was born in response to resort guests who have inquired about living on Devil’s Thumb Ranch. “We thought that we could share this beautiful valley by creating some unique private homesites with incredible views to the west on a ridge above Devil’s Thumb Ranch base area,” says Rob Cyman, president of The Ranches at Devil’s Thumb.

Cyman adds that this is about investing for the future. “There is an emphasis on land preservation and maintaining open spaces versus a concentration on density and overdevelopment. Creating an environment that emphasizes inspiring experiences and a connection to the land and friends and family are our primary guiding principles.”
