3,250-Acre Santa Fe Ranch Set for Luxury Auction®

Storied Luxury Santa Fe, New Mexico Ranch Set for Luxury Auction®

On Wednesday, October 14, a sprawling ranch on 3,250 acres in Santa Fe County, New Mexico will be offered for sale at a luxury auction® without reserve.

High-dollar Santa Fe property heads to auction

The last time Saddleback Ranch in Galisteo was sold, it went for the highest price ever recorded in Santa Fe County this century.

The total in 2008: $17.45 million.

It was a high-water mark that still stands — $7.35 million clear of the second-highest property sale in the past 20 years.

But then, consider the amenities. The 3,250-acre ranch comes with a six-bedroom, 7,264-square-foot Drogheda Estate and four-bedroom, 6,103-square-foot Windland Estate. The property also has an eight-car garage and 10-stall barn.

It goes on the auction block Wednesday without reserve, meaning no minimum bid. The auction will be conducted by Miami-based Platinum Luxury Auctions, which has conducted several high-dollar home auctions in Santa Fe.

Houston-based shopping center magnate Dan Silvestri and other partners bought the ranch in 2008 and Silvestri became full owner 1½ years ago. He lived in the smaller Windland Estate, but Silvestri reckons he has visited maybe 20 times over the years.
