Property Description

Mores Creek Ranch


Up in the timber only 30 minutes from Boise with end-of-road privacy. Mores Creek Borders the property on the west side. The area is mountainous with timber, meadows, creeks and national forest lands. It is a great place to live and recreate. It is 15 minutes from Idaho City, which was one of the largest towns in Idaho when mining w

as at it peak there. Lots of mining and history in the area. The Boise River and Lucky Peak Dam are also close.


The 83.95± acres is comprised of timber, hillsides, older tree nursery with a variety of trees, and some flat meadow areas with ponds around the buildings. Some of the trees in the tree nursery could be sold or moved around the place for updated landscaping. There are water rights for 40± acres directly out of the creek and from a well. Some dating back to 1877. Water rights are for irrigation, stock water and domestic use. There is a lot of possibilities on this land from keeping it your own get-away to starting an event center or restarting the tree nursery. At one time the property was fully landscaped with fencing for horse but all needs attention.
