Tom Ford’s ridiculously flawless New Mexico property hit the market earlier this month.
And while LLNYC has been sitting around hoping to just stumble across the $75 million needed to buy it ever since, one enterprising individual has taken a little more action to try and make the fashion designer’s ranch his: he’s crowdsourcing.
In what appears to be an actual, genuine campaign, the hopeful buyer writes: “For the first time ever, we’re taking a multi-tens-of-milllions-of-dollars property and breaking down the purchase by making it accessible to a lot of people in vacation-sized chunks.”
Pledge $97,000 and you’ll be rewarded with a whole week at the ranch. What a bargain…
The wannabe buyer fails to point out that if the money does get raised – while everyone who pitched in will get their designated vacation days – one person (the fundraiser himself) will end up owning a $75 million ranch. A little unfair we think, but a genius plan.
So far a grand total of $0 has been raised.
Spread across over 20,000 acres, the ranch has its own landing strip, eight-stall horse barn, indoor and outdoor riding arenas, staff quarters and guest houses. The main residence was designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando.
It also comes with Silverado Movie Town, which was built as a set for the 1985 film “Silverado”, and has since been used in “3:10 to Yuma“, and “Thor”. [Curbed]
