A ranch which also includes a town from them classic cowboy movies, is up for sale. Fancy, you may think, but fancier is the fact that it is owned by American designer Tom Ford, and that the Silverado Movie Town thus mentioned has featured in one too many movies to brush aside. And this wonderful property spanning some 20,663 acres, located in the Galisteo Basin in Sante Fe, New Mexico, is up for sale. Reportedly, the price is $75 million.
The Cerro Pelon Ranch, as it is named, has its own landing strip, eight-stall horse barn, indoor and outdoor riding areas, staff quarters, guest houses as well as the remarkable residences designed by renowned Japanese architect Tadao Ando. In case you were wondering, the old town appeared first in the 1985 Silverado and more lately was seen in Cowboys and Aliens, Wild, Wild West, All the Pretty Horses, 3:10 to Yuma and Thor. Wonder why he wants to sell this. Maybe he is bored with horses, and wants to go futuristic with a space station. Or maybe, he will choose like an Amazon rain forest tropical theme? Or maybe go all oriental and have mini china towns in some 50,000 acre reclaimed island in the Arabian sea. What is impossible now, really?
