Val Kilmer, one of Hollywood’s top stars, is selling part of his Santa Fe Ranch as he has two major films back to back and is not using the property as much as he would like. While only selling 1,800 of the 6,000 acres, the property comprises most of the developed part of the ranch.
Kilmer has put part of his 6,000-acre Pecos River Ranch near Santa Fe, N.M., on the market. The actor, a native of L.A., has listed about 1,800 acres at $18 million because he will soon star in two films shooting back to back and “won’t be able to spend as much time on the ranch as he would like,” said his publicist Christina Papadopoulos.
The ranch, once owned by actress Greer Garson and her husband, Buddy Fogelson, is in high-desert canyon country and looks as if it’s straight out of the Old West. The Santa Fe Trail runs through it, and there are four miles of trout-filled river as well as fields of wildflowers and ponderosa-lined limestone cliffs. There is wildlife — deer, turkeys, black bears, cougars, beavers, eagles and falcons.
The part of the ranch Kilmer is selling has a log-and-stucco ranch house with four bedrooms and four bathrooms in 5,600 square feet and two guest cottages. Each cottage is about 1,000 square feet and has one bedroom and one bathroom.
There are extensive staff quarters, heated stables, foaling barns and corrals. Kilmer said that he grew up riding horses in Chatsworth and has several on the ranch, which feeds more than 100 animals, among them buffalo and llamas that roam the property. via Los Angeles Times.
