Ranching large

Largest contiguous ranch in America for sale for £473 million

 

Americans don’t do things by halves and the 510,527-acre W. T. Waggoner Estate Ranch in Texas is no exception. It is on the market for the equally impressive sum of £473 million ($725 million) through Sotheby’s International Realty.

Covering some 800 square miles and owned by the same family since 1849, the property includes 30,000 acres of cultivated farmland and 1,000 producing oil wells. There are also 20 cowboy camps “scattered throughout the property”, two owner’s compounds and lakes ranging in size from 1,000 to 16,000 surface acres.

 

On the market since August 2014 following a familial dispute, the ranch is half the size of Rhode Island and currently employs around 150 people in total. It is said to be home also to about 14,000 cows and 500 horses.
