Movie buffs might recognize portions of 5 Bar 6 Ranch from one of Brad Pitt’s early breakout films, A River Runs Through It. Scenes from the 1992 Robert Redford-directed Oscar winner were filmed at this Paradise Valley location, which features approximately two miles of the trout-rich Mill Creek.

Nestled at the base of Chico Peak in a serene and private setting, the ranch’s luxurious, stone-hewn Western-style dwelling was designed by acclaimed area architects, Jonathan Foote and Paul Bertelli. Featuring eight bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, two gourmet kitchens and a 1,000-bottle wine cellar, the main home is the epitome of modern elegance.

The 204-acre property’s surrounding Rocky Mountains’ beauty can be enjoyed from an outdoor living area that includes a heated infinity pool and hot tub as well as expansive stone patio with outdoor grill, food prep area, bar and fireplace. 

Framed by the Gallatin, Absaroka and Crazy mountain ranges, Paradise Valley is among the most scenic and striking areas of the American West. Surrounded by some of the country’s most sought-after trout-fishing streams, Mill Creek is a tributary of the celebrated Yellowstone River. 

If the 5 Bar 6 Ranch’s new owners can eventually wrest themselves away from their pristine recreational getaway, abundant area attractions include the town of Livingston, Montana, and the lure of Yellowstone National Park 45 miles to the south. 

5 Bar 6 Ranch was listed for sale on January 16, 2018, through Tracy Raich of Livingston-based Raich Mountain Properties.
