Nearly 200 acres of Idaho Canyons and Rivers Goes to Auction
Looking for a little more space or maybe a lot more space? A property with 197 acres of ”incredible” canyons, rivers, waterfalls and streams along the Snake River in Idaho that is listed for $19.75 million is now going to the highest bidder in an auction, according to The Sacramento Bee and Idaho Statesman.
The no reserve auction for the gem state land opens on Thursday, Sept. 16. The nearly 200 acres is surrounded by Snake River Canyons Park. The Snake River itself even stretches along its one-mile-long southern border. The property is just upstream from Shoshone Falls and has riverside cliffs, views for days and even is part of the semiarid basalt plain near Jerome.
According to the property listing by Concierge Auctions. The property is “Tucked within the soaring walls of the Snake River Canyon is Devil’s Corral, an extraordinary opportunity. Explore almost 200 acres of stunning canyons, rivers, and streams, forming an untouched blank canvas in the thriving community of Twin Falls.”
The land is full of wildlife and private beautiful terrain with mountains, rivers, cliffs and lakes. Since the auction is not reserved, anyone can bid on it. There are areas that can be developed on and most likely, unless a wealthy individual snags it, is what it will be sold to.
The auction site is even marketing to developers, “Envision a suite of luxury estates nestled in Idaho’s crown jewel, with an incredible eco-lodge or world-class equestrian facility in the heart of horse country. The opportunities are as limitless as the breathtaking horizon and welcome you to carve your own mark in this prehistoric wonder.”
Devil’s Corral is about 1.5 hours from Sun Valley, 2 hours from Boise, and 3.5 hours from Salt Lake City.
