The Duke is back on the market — or rather, his property is. John Wayne's luxury ranch estate is on the market for $12,000,000.
Long, long ago, way before Hailee Steinfeld made her film debut in the Cohen brothers’ film True Grit, John Wayne starred in the 1969 original that became an instant classic. In fact Wayne won an Oscar for his turn as Rooster Coburn, growling classic lines like, “Courage is being scared to death but saddling up anyway” and “If everything isn’t black and white, I say why the h**** not?”
In real life, however, “The Duke” (as Wayne was nicknamed) wasn’t afraid to enjoy a little local color — especially the blue skies, purple mountains, and green fields — that he found in Sage, California.
In fact, he chose to hang his cowboy hat at Rancho Pavoreal, a luxury ranch estate located halfway between San Diego and Palm Springs. And now you can, too. Just 20 minutes from the Temecula Wine Country, the 2,000-acre estate provides all the luxuries necessary to classify a ranch as heaven, including plenty of room to horse around in vast fenced farmland and on various scenic horse trails.
After you’ve enjoyed a trot along the breathtaking plains of the property, there are plenty of other places to pull focus, including the dazzling circa-1950 three-bedroom, three-bathroom, 3,000-square-foot home; an classic state-of-the-craft barn; and panoramic views of the surrounding valley and Palomar Mountains.
