Business magnate T. Boon Pickens listed his beloved 64,809-acre Mesa Vista Ranch for $250 million this fall. Located in the Eastern Texas Panhandle around 85 miles from Amarillo, the ranch encompasses 101 square miles of rivers, rolling hills, mesas, and man-made lakes.
After purchasing around 2,900 acres of land in 1971, Pickens set about turning the wilderness into an oasis. The ranch now boasts a two-story pub, a nine-hole golf course, a dog kennel, a chapel, an art gallery, and a private airport. The 33,000-square-foot main lodge includes a great room with two fireplaces, a library, a wine cellar, a kitchen, and a movie theater.
