Kilmer Asks $33 Million For New Mexico Ranch
Val Kilmer, who’s failed to find a buyer for parts of his 6,000-acre New Mexico ranch, has now listed all of it for $33 million.
The 49-year-old actor, who announced in February that he may run for New Mexico governor next year, says he’s listing so that “someone who has the time and the finances” can maintain and preserve the property.
His Pecos River ranch (with nearly six miles of the popular trout-fishing river) is about 25 miles southeast of Santa Fe and remains largely wild with canyons and pine forests. There’s a main log house of about 5,600 square feet with four bedrooms, and two guest houses.
The star of “The Doors” (1991) and “Batman Forever” (1995) assembled the ranch roughly 13 years ago. In 2006, he asked $18 million for 1,800 acres of the property, including the main houses. In January Mr. Kilmer offered those houses on a 1,000-acre parcel for $9 million, down from $12 million a few months earlier. John Watson, president and CEO of ranch broker Orvis/Cushman & Wakefield, has the listing.
