165-acre Colorado ranch hits market market for $11.5M
Located at 64407 US Highway 285 in Bailey, Deer Creek Valley Ranch once served as a stagecoach stop between Denver and Fairplay.
BAILEY, Colorado – A Colorado ranch founded in 1862 and currently serving as a popular wedding venue went on sale Thursday for an asking price of $11.5 million.
Located at 64407 U.S. Highway 285 in Bailey, Deer Creek Valley Ranch once served as a stagecoach stop between Denver and Fairplay and was one of the first post offices in the area, according to records. Now the 165-acre ranch, which is less than an hour’s drive from Denver, still offers mountain views, expansive meadows, abundant wildlife, and bridleways.

The property was last purchased by the owner Tim Marasciullo for $2.6 million in 2003, according to public records. After selling a successful plumbing business and attempting to retire, Marasciullo now owns Englewood-based Solutions Plumbing and Mechanical, a premium Denver metro plumbing company.
After purchasing the ranch, Marasciullo met his current wife and business partner Christian in Hawaii in 2006, and in a whirlwind romance, the couple got engaged just 14 days later.
