The sun casts along the water and beams peek through the grand oaks to bring serenity to its purest form. 243ft of river frontage where undulating glimmers head down river for the setting sun. Protected natural backdrops and wildlife gazing opportunities in every direction. When the sun goes down, the magic lusters throughout the homestead. Exterior illumination highlights it all from the ground to the treetops. EXPERIENCE HISTORY: Read about the early history of Bluebird Ranch and the Rye family that is etched into a historic marker at the base of the property. This antebellum inspired estate was the original homestead of Erasamus Rye in the 1850's.
