It’s pretty hard not to like Ryan Serhant. Sure, he’s easily excitable, and not one to shy away from a corny joke or two (or five), but yeah, you like him.
Don’t lie. You know you do. Maybe a guilty pleasure for you too-cool-for-school hipsters out there, but you and I both know you secretly want to have a drink with the guy. Why wouldn’t you?
So, when we heard Ryan was giving a tour of one of the most pants-on-head crazy listings we’ve ever seen, we knew we weren’t going to have to work hard to find our listing of the week this week. So, without further ado, we give you the Gateway Canyons Ranch.
The Numbers Alone on This Place Will Blow Your Mind
While we’re rarely at a loss for words―ask our poor office mates―this place left us stumped. We thought about just listing out a bunch of synonyms for “crazy” and looked in vain for an obscure German compound word (mindblowenhaus?) that captures this place, but we gave up.
There was nothing we came up with that even touched the madness of just listing the features this place has:
- A 22,000 square foot main house with 8 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, and walls of real fossils.
- 9,000 acres
- Several of your own mountains
- A $3 million helicopter and multiple landing pads
- Your own private planetarium
- A car museum with a $55 million car collection included
- 8 buffalo
- A fishing pond
- An airstrip and airplane hangar
- Horses (a bunch of them)
- A 72-room resort
- 3 pools
- 2 restaurants
- Baja race track
- Shooting range
- Log cabins
Is it me, or is this place starting to sound like a freaking bargain?! Listing agent Kerry Endsley from LIV Sotheby’s International Realty calls it, “the finest land and estate property in the great American West.”
Hard to disagree once you see the view from a helicopter:
Your own private planetarium complete with a high-powered telescope at night:
If that doesn’t do it for you, how about the view from the main house?
The inside isn’t too shabby either:
All this and you get the pedigree of the founder of the Discovery Network, John Hendricks. As you can imagine, this was a labor of love for someone so connected to nature. It shines through at this historic property. Every element seems to have been built to pay homage to and reflect the awe-inspiring landscape of the American West.
OK, OK, we get it. You came here to watch Ryan Serhant get his mind blown. Here’s the video:
