Discover the Untouched Beauty of Victory Ranch
History tells the story of three World War II veteran soldiers who bonded on the battlefield. Through countless days and nights of fighting, the three brave soldiers persevered, holding on to a promise they had made to one another. They promised, if they all survived the war, they would buy a cattle ranch together. And, that’s just what they did. After the U.S. won the war, the three men bought land situated just off State Road 32 in Kamas. They rightfully named the area Victory Ranch because, for them, it symbolized the greatest victory of all.
For most, the word ranch conjures postcard-worthy images of unfenced countryside that melts into the horizon, amber fields and rolling hills, babbling streams carved into vast landscapes all laid out before a grand estate perched atop the property like a throne, taking in the totality of the idyllic scene. By every stretch of the imagination, Victory Ranch is that vision realized and brought to life in the quintessential town of Kamas. With the backdrop of the Wasatch Mountains in the distance, the award-winning waters of the Upper Provo River and vast open country as far as the eye can see, Victory Ranch is the picture-perfect representation of the American West.
Victory Ranch dates back to the mid 1900s, when the cattle population outnumbered the human population. Today, Victory Ranch has become a land of endless adventure where nature and luxury intersect—a private, luxury community of sprawling ranch home estates surrounded by an expansive mountain countryside. It has become a place of legacy for families and future generations. All 6,250 scenic acres of this secluded, awe-inspiring community sits along a protected four-mile stretch of the Upper Provo River and offers boundless opportunities for active outdoor enthusiasts and nature-loving families to escape from the everyday and reconnect with the natural world and each other.
The gated community of Victory Ranch is the pinnacle of a luxury four-season family adventure. It is a highly sought-after golf and fly fishing destination just 20 minutes from Park City. Within this private enclave, Victory Ranch runs the full gamut of outdoor recreation and luxury amenities for residents. Residents can spend their days and weekends golfing at the Victory Ranch 18-hole Rees Jones–designed golf course and clubhouse, skeet shooting at a five-stand double-barrel facility, venturing out on an Upland bird hunting expedition, hiking and mountain biking on 30 miles of trails, camping (with a private chef) in the backcountry yurts, and of course fly-fishing for trophy Browns, Cutthroat and Rainbow Trout on the award-winning Provo River.
Additionally, residents have access to the Victory Ranch fitness and wellness facility, a year-round 50-foot swimming pool, in addition to a 80-foot swimming pool with water slide, a full-service spa, a riverside restaurant and the luxurious indoor-outdoor Lost Library Lounge set along the River Trail. Plus, a ski-in / ski-out clubhouse in downtown Park City for winter adventures on the slopes. Kids have boundless adventures awaiting them at Victory Ranch too, where they’ll undeniably create childhood memories to last a lifetime. Youth activities and amenities include an ice cream parlor, indoor sports court, game room and paddle tennis pavilion, plus a host of other kids activities. Residents can also enjoy exploring on foot, bike or horseback along more than 30 miles of private, professionally designed trails.
Victory Ranch stakes claim as the lowest-density development project in the Wasatch Range area, with a respect for nature and native ecosystems apparent in the intentional design and layout of the community, which consists of just 350 homesites on 6,250 acres. “We’re doing the best we can to protect the natural world around us,” says Matt Eastman, Victory Ranch’s director and manager.
Victory Ranch offers those 350 homes on lots ranging from 1 acre to 55 acres. Cabin homes are priced from $3.3 million, homesites start at $1.35 million, and The Residence Club units begin at $410,000. “These are deeded-interest and offer an amazing opportunity to enjoy Victory Ranch without the hassles of full ownership.” shared Caren McClellan, Director of Sales at Victory Ranch. There are plenty of residence options to fit the needs, wants and desires of every potential buyer and include cabins, custom homes, estate homesites and ranches. Rest assured every home site boasts panoramic views. You can visit victoryranchutah.com to learn more.
Throughout this community, one will find natural architectural elements including natively sourced and sustainable timber and natural stone, as well as rustic metals that highlight each home’s unique beauty. The Victory Ranch Cabin homes average 3,000 – 4,000 square feet and offer stunning views of the Wasatch mountain range and the Rees Jones golf course. Victory Ranch also offers Barn Overlook Cabins and Lake Cabins with six distinct floorplans to choose from. As you might have guessed, the Barn Cabins overlook the historic Auerbach Barn and Lake Cabins have small docks for paddle and bumper boats set in man-made lakes stocked with trout.
These stand-alone, luxury cabin homes are designed with a contemporary mountain-chalet aesthetic. Cabin home finishes include neutral tones and natural color palettes that complement the beauty of the outdoors and reclaimed wood detail reflected in exposed interior beams, wall paneling and picture windows that frame the Jordanelle Reservoir and Wasatch Mountains.
Hoping to spread out a bit more? Not a problem, large homesites and sizable lots are also available. Victory Ranch estate lots are approximately 4-55 acres in size and allow homes 9,000+ square feet. The River Ranch Collection showcses three homesites 45-55 acres each, which allow homes up to 11,000 square feet. For those not wanting to make such a large investment, Victory Ranch also offers fractional ownership through The Residence Club.
Victory Ranch is truly an inspirational development and operation. Not only is it the embodiment of the American West, but Victory Ranch is also dedicated to fostering long-term sustainability within its community through the Victory Ranch Conservancy. The Conservancy guarantees the protection of native flora and fauna and ecosystems within the community so that its owners and future generations will continue to benefit. “It’s all about connecting people with the great outdoors.” says Matt Menna, Principal of Sterling Bay, the Chicago-based real estate company developing Victory Ranch. Truly, Victory Ranch is a place like no other, a legacy to be relished and enjoyed for generations to come.
