Robert Redford is selling his 25-year-old Charleston, Utah, ranch for $4.9 million.
The actor and director dubbed the 30-acre horse ranch “The Horse Whisperer” informally.
Redford, 84, purchased the land in 1996 to provide a winter exercise area for his horses, according to Compass agent Steven Mavromihalis.
Located 16 miles north of Sundance Mountain Resort — Redford’s creation of a “arts [and] recreational community” complete with ski lodging and summer theater — the ranch boasts panoramic views of Mount Timpanogos.
The property, which is comprised of seven structures, features a 1,460-square-foot farmhouse with two bedrooms, a 2,000-square-foot woodshop, a 3,200-square-foot garden hobby house, a boat garage, a hay barn, covered horse stalls, a horse training ring, and endless pastures.
“For the last 25 years, my family and I have cherished and embraced this ranch as a home base for our horse program, hosting clinics and caring for our numerous cherished horses,” Redford told the WSJ. “In the future, we want to focus on expanding the facilities at our ranch in Sundance, Utah, which is adjacent to Provo Canyon.”
In the 1960s, Redford began amassing property in Utah, when he purchased two acres in Provo Canyon and constructed an A-frame cabin for his family.
In 1969, Redford launched his acting career alongside Paul Newman in “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” a seminal nouveau Western about a band of outlaws.
Redford announced his retirement from acting in 2018. Executive producing the documentary series “Death Row Stories” and the documentary “Desert of the Real” are among his recent credits.
James Redford, Redford’s son, died of liver cancer last year at the age of 58.
