As always, I’m here to help you spend your millions (even if you didn’t know you had them, ha). Here are three pretty fabulous ranches on the market that belong to three pretty famous people. Take a look and then vote for your favorite below!
#1. JANE FONDA’S FORKED LIGHTNING RANCH
Jane Fonda is selling her New Mexico ranch for $19.5 million, saying she loves it but isn’t able to spend enough time there anymore.
She built the 9,500-square-foot Spanish Colonial-Style house on 2,000 acres near Santa Fe about 15 years ago and it was featured in Architectural Digest last March.
“I think of myself as a steward of this land, and, while my vision for the place has been realized in the design of my home and careful care of the property’s ecosystem, the land itself remains the ranch’s true value and essence,” she says.
The antiques, artwork, rugs, and furniture in the house are also for sale.
There’s a guest house on the property called the Hacienda, as well as a gym and a 12-stall horse facility.
#2. JOE COCKER’S MAD DOG RANCH IN CRAWFORD, COLORADO
Cocker and his wife had been planning to downsize to a smaller place nearby, but he sadly died at the end of December.
The listing says: “Home to famous rock singer Joe Cocker and his wife, their menagerie of animals, and Joe’s award-winning tomatoes, Mad Dog Ranch is a tranquil 243+/- acres of rolling, irrigated meadows, towering aspens and vibrant English gardens sitting in the shadow of the dramatic, volcanic Needle Rock near Crawford, CO.”
One of their dogs makes an appearance in the next photo — see him?
Want it? Asking price is $7 million. Check the listing for more photos and information.
#3. RANDY TRAVIS’S RANCH IN SANTA FE
According to Zillow, Country singer Randy Travis bought this 220-acre property from New Mexico’s former governor and turned it into a luxury ranch where he kept a pet buffalo, as well as horses and cattle.
His former wife and manager Elizabeth Travis has been living here since their 2010 divorce and did the interiors herself.
Travis suffered a stroke in 2013 and now lives in Texas. His fiancee Mary Davis gave an update on his health recently that you can read on Taste of Country.
The listing agent says, “It also has a bowling alley and gymnasium tucked into an adobe building that looks, from the outside, like a traditional New Mexico chapel. A shooting range and swimming pool round out the property.”
So now that you’ve seen all three ranches, if you had to live on one of them, which one would you choose? I think I’ll take Jane’s place (minus the vintage doll heads in the bedroom that might make it difficult for me to sleep, thanks).
