Critically acclaimed actor Val Kilmer is selling his wild expanse of classic Southwest beauty in the Land of Enchantment; the 5,970-acre Pecos River Ranch. Available for the first time in its entirety, Pecos River Ranch is listed for $33,000,000, exclusively through Orvis/Cushman & Wakefield (www.orviscw.com/valkilmer). Thirty-five minutes southeast of Santa Fe, the 5,330 deeded and 640 leased acres are adjacent to the Santa Fe National Forest, including some five and three-quarter miles of the pristine Pecos River.
Best known for his acting success in films like Batman Forever, The Saint, Heat, Tombstone and Top Gun, Val Kilmer has long appreciated conserving wild lands. “I have spent the past 13 years assembling and enjoying living on Pecos River Ranch. This ranch is a place to commune with nature, experience peace, and spend quality time with family and friends,” says Kilmer.
Some five and three-quarter miles of the Pecos River wind through canyons lined with towering rock walls and majestic ponderosa pines. Rainbow trout, cutbow trout, and the rare native Pecos River strain of the Rio Grande cutthroat trout, all found in this pristine river, please even the most discerning fisherman. With its location adjacent to the Santa Fe National Forest, the ranch is habitat for a spectrum of species that delight both the wildlife watcher and the sportsman, including elk, deer, bear, red fox and mountain lion as well as a variety of bird species including bald eagle, a nesting pair of peregrine falcons, Merriam’s turkey and red-tailed hawks.
Kilmerhas been active with The Wildlife Center of New Mexico, and says that “protecting wildlife and encouraging healthy coexistence with the natural world has been an enriching experience for me while spending much of my life on Pecos River Ranch.”
“Pecos River Ranch has been kept wild and very few private wild lands remain.” says John Watson, President and CEO of conservation real estate company Orvis/Cushman & Wakefield, and broker for the ranch. “To find a fishery of this quality for sale in New Mexico is rare. The ranch presents an unmatched opportunity for an investor to follow in Val’s footsteps as the next steward for this incredible fishery and wildlife habitat adjoining the Santa Fe National Forest.”
This property is presented by Orvis/Cushman & Wakefield for $33,000,000, by John B. Watson and Rye Austin.
