Council Mountain Ranch is located just east of the small town of Council, Idaho. Council lies along the bank of the Weiser River. Highway 95 is the major corridor traversing the state from North to South. Council is the largest city in rural Adams County, as well as serving as the county seat.
Consisting of 2,127.26± deeded acres, the land is a combination of mountain pasture and rangeland with timbered draws. The property is almost 4 miles long from north to south and borders the Payette National Forest. The road system allows access to the property for maintenance, timber harvesting, fire protection, and recreation. Equally important, it is fully fenced.
The 3,465 square foot home sits on a grassy slope overlooking the Council Valley. This home features vaulted ceilings along with western red cedar timber accents. It has plenty of large windows to let in light and breathtaking views. The main floor, loft, and finished daylight basement have four bedrooms and two and a half baths. Another great feature of the home is the covered wraparound deck. Apart from the house, the detached garage has a workshop and attic storage space. Additionally important, the home lies at the opening to Grossen Canyon. The surrounding mountains provide incredible privacy and recreation from just outside your back door.
There are four creeks on the property, including Camp Creek, Cool Creek and Lester Creek. Best of all, a fourth unnamed creek near the home is reported to have a trout. Water rights are available for two of the creeks. There is also a seasonal pond.
Adams County has a rich and diverse geography including mountains, forests, rivers, and high desert. The area is bordered on the west by the Snake River and Hells Canyon National Recreation Area. Which is home to the continent’s deepest river gorge.
The Payette National Forest is popular for those looking to camp, hunt, fish, and hike. The rivers here are an important habitat for the salmon and Steelhead trout. Council Mountain Ranch is located in Idaho Hunting Unit 32A. Property is reported to offer great hunting for elk, deer, and the occasional bear.
