In addition to claiming this week’s title, the property rocketed to No. 4 on the list of most expensive homes in the country. How’s that for a discovery?
Known as West Creek Ranch, it features a 14-bedroom, 26,869-square-foot home on 6,919 acres of land. Architect Jamie Daugaard designed the Southwestern-style home to blend in with its natural surroundings along the Colorado and Utah border.
The four-level house features stone terraces, wood and granite inlays, an elevator, great room, veranda, art studio, executive office, chef’s kitchen, home theater, billiard room, staff quarters, and pool. There’s a circular stone library, marble archways, geothermal heating and cooling, and custom furnishings.
But those are merely standard luxury features. There are amenities that catapult the estate into the stratosphere of ultraluxe properties. There’s a grass landing strip and helipad for air travel. According to Business Insider, a ranch on the property is home to five American bison, four American quarter horses, one Belgian draft horse, and three miniature horses.
And when you’re on a secluded ranch, there are more opportunities to enjoy the night sky. Many would buy a telescope. Hendricks has his, a 20-inch Meade telescope, inside an astronomical observatory.
Getting to the home isn’t exactly easy—Hendricks chose the location in a conservation easement (land preserved by the U.S. government for a specific purpose) so that no roads or structures can be built anywhere near the property. So gas up the chopper, and make your way to one of the priciest properties in the country.
