How would you like to buy a nice little piece of land in Colorado with a few dinosaur fossils on it? If so, the man who founded the Discovery Channel is now selling his 7,000-acre-ranch along with a nearby 1,700-acre luxury resort for a mere $279 million. Seems like a steal especially when you consider the property is also chock full of items like dinosaur fossils and Native American rock art.
The land also comes with wildlife including mule, deer, elk, mountain lion, bear, and waterfowl. There is a 25,500-square-foot main residence on the private ranch, which has eight bedrooms and eight bathrooms on four levels, with an elevator. The residence also has a theater, gym, game room, a library, and a five-car garage.
Also included in the sale is the Gateway Canyons resort, which has 72 rooms, a spa, and five restaurants, and offers outdoor adventures, like horseback riding, hiking, and outdoor yoga. Standard deluxe rooms, start at $441 a night, and luxury casitas start at $1,494 per night.
Let's not forget that along with an airstrip, an airplane hangar, a helipad, and horse stables, the ranch also includes a private observatory with a telescope and a prehistoric dinosaur footprint. If classic cars are your thing, the property also boasts it's own car museum and comes with just two of the 50 cars featured in the Gateway Auto Museum. A 1929 Duesenberg and a 1906 Cadillac will go to some lucky buyer.
All this for just $279 million. Told you it was a steal.
