According to a recent report by the Wall Street Journal, it seems a Wyoming ranch that was once owned by the late and great Walt Disney has just come on the market and it’s priced at $71 million.
The ranch is located about 82 miles east of Jackson Hole near the town of Dubois, and is said to span about 5,000 deeded acres, according to the listing agent Jim Taylor of Hall and Hall. The current owner is by an LLC tied to Stephen Gordon, a former manufacturing executive who purchased the ranch in 1980s, according to public records.
The ranch was previously owned by members of Mr. Disney’s family, according to Mr. Taylor, who said he represented them in the sale to the current owner. They owned the property through a company known as Retlaw Enterprises, which Mr. Disney had formed to license his name and build Disneyland, according to the book “The Animated Man,” by Michael Barrier. After Mr. Disney’s death in 1966, Retlaw was owned by his heirs.
Now known as Diamond G Ranch, the property is located about 23 miles from Yellowstone National Park and is surrounded by national forestland. The ranch has several structures, including a lodge with five bedrooms that serves as the owner’s residence, said Mr. Taylor. The main guesthouse is a log structure with an enclosed porch. There are additional guest homes, including two log cabins, as well as a roughly 1,500-square-foot manager’s house with three bedrooms. The barn has storage on the first level and an office, boardroom and kitchenette upstairs. There is also a lake, and a roughly 5-mile stretch of Du Noir Creek runs through the property.
“It’s surrounded by wilderness,” said Mr. Gordon, who said the ranch is bordered on three sides by roughly 11,000-foot-high mountain peaks. “It’s an amazingly private place.”
For those curious about comps in the area. It seems that last month a roughly 110-acre ranch a few miles from Jackson Hole hit the market at $48 million. In June, a 233-acre ranch in the same area was said to have been listed for $35 million.
