You Can’t be Tom Ford, but You Can Buy His Ranch [w/ Video]
Do you own a ranch that’s bigger than the island of Manhattan? Odds are you don’t, but American fashion designer and sometime movie director Tom Ford does. However, that might not be the case for much longer, as he’s put the Cerro Pelon Ranch – located on the outskirts of Santa Fe, New Mexico – up for sale.
Encompassing about 20,662 acres (4,454 of which are leased), which works out to about 32 square miles, the Cerro Pelon Ranch features a stunning residence designed by renown Japanese architect Tadao Ando (with plans for a second one located atop the ranch’s highest point), an 8-stall horse barn, four separate staff quarters, two private guest houses, multiple warehouses, and an airstrip with a hangar.
And in case all that wasn’t enough, this expansive estate also includes the old west town movie set built for the 1985 Kevin Kline vehicle Silverado. The set has since been upgraded and expanded, and has been used in the production of films like Wild Wild West (which also starred Mr. Kline), Lonesome Dove, Cowboys & Aliens, and 3:10 to Yuma. So yeah, buy a massive New Mexico ranch (for a purported $75 million) and get a famous western movie and TV show set free. How can you beat that?
