Known for being havens of rustic, down-to-earth hideaways, ranches, farms and country estates are finding their way back into the forefront of buyer’s minds. Luckily for those interested, these properties can be found in nearly every corner of the U.S.

Located in the heart of Albany is Cane Mill Plantation, a $16 million estate in the heart of the quail plantation belt in Georgia. Properties in this area are contiguous with one another, according to agent Elliot Davenport Jr., of Hall and Hall, and cover a large breadth of land with a variety of outdoor recreation. Offering a main lodge, staff housing, dog kennel and more, this fifth-generation-owned property is an ideal hunting retreat at the tail-end of the Appalachian Mountains, at only an hour distance to Atlanta.

Southwest in Texas is a more wide-ranging assortment of ranch, farm and estate properties to choose from, depending on the needs of the buyers. “Buyers without horses often go a bit further outside of the Dallas/Fort Worth area,” says Keller Williams Realty Agent Kim Hunter, “as their country estates are used similarly to mountain or lake homes; it’s really about a weekend retreat for these buyers. Ranchers tend to look for much larger tracts (100-plus acres) where they keep a mixture of horses and cattle.”

Hunter just listed the Furst Ranch Estate, a 127-acre working ranch with world-class horse facilities and a high lodge-style home atop one of the highest points in northern Denton County. Apart from the renovated lodge home, the rolling landscape and abundance of trees on the exterior is what surely makes this ranch special. “It’s not pretentious, despite its size and amenities, so it could serve as a private home, family compound, corporate or executive retreat,” says Hunter.

Farther west into the Williams Fork River Valley of Colorado sits Motherwell Ranch, a 10,350±-acre mountain ranch that combines a diverse landscape, privacy, fishing from multiple water sources, and much more. Water is what secures Motherwell as a significant property, according to Hall and Hall Agent Brian Smith. “Good water is essential … and with 3.3 miles of the Williams Fork River, four lakes, over 90 ponds and smaller creeks, the ranch really stands out for its quality and quantity of water,” says Smith.

Local Californian rancher and Realtor Jim Martin is listing White Oak Ranch and Vineyard, a 255-acre property in Mendocino County with 130 acres of productive vineyards. “The White Oak Ranch & Vineyard is California’s premiere wine country estate where Mediterranean refinement blends with Western tradition,” says Martin, as the ranch’s architectural style is based on homes in Provence, France.

On the ranch is the Villa, which offers 10,000 square feet, five en suite bedrooms, seven baths, a professional kitchen, two internal courtyard gardens and an outdoor kitchen with an exterior fireplace. White Oak has first-class amenities of the highest order, coupled with a full-scale, commercial and income-producing vineyard. — Kristen Ordonez

Every detail of Kimpton Hotel Born Denver — from Bavarian inspired materials to exposed concrete ceilings, from floor-to-ceiling windows to 700 original works — has been crafted to impart an elevated, urban vibe that is uniquely Colorado.

Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants brings dynamic luxury to Denver with the opening of Kimpton Hotel Born Denver.
“Denver is one of the most dynamic places in the country right now and the opening of Hotel Born is another major milestone for the Mile High City,” said Hotel Born General Manager Von DeLuna. “We sit at the end of the Union Station platform, but in the heart of the city, making Hotel Born the hub of Denver’s incredible arts, culture, dining and entertainment scenes, as well as, of course, the outdoors.”
 

Developed by Continuum Partners and designed by Denver-based Semple Brown in collaboration with Ellen Bruss of Ellen Bruss Design, Hotel Born has been modernly crafted. A balance of handcrafted wood, concrete and metal capture Denver’s sophisticated locale. With pine paneling, custom millwork and walnut herringbone floors, the lobby is contemporary yet inviting. Hand-woven rugs, textured materials, warm lighting and custom furniture pieces make it feel like a home.
The exterior of the building reflects the brick masonry of LoDo’s original historic warehouses while the floor-to-ceiling windows give the hotel a striking presence distinct from any adjacent buildings.

Hotel Born’s 200 guest rooms — including 40 suites and 2 premier suites — feature dark brown and gold herringbone patterned carpet and a mix of traditional and modern furniture offset by fresh white walls. To merge indoor and outdoor spaces, each room features large floor-to-ceiling windows.
“Continuum Partners has been at the center of Denver’s urban evolution for the last 20 years, including our role as co-master developer of the Union Station Transit Station,” said Mark Falcone, CEO and founder of Continuum Partners. “We designed Hotel Born to reflect a spirit and aesthetic that we see as distinctly Denver and the opening of its doors today is a culminating moment not only for our team, but also for the Union Station neighborhood and the entire city.”
One of the most unique aspects of Hotel Born is the art collection, which is composed of more than 700 original works by Denver-area artists. Adam Lerner, director of the nearby Museum of Contemporary Art, asked 32 of the most talented artists in the city to produce work specifically for the hotel. Approximately 300 works are displayed in the hotel’s public spaces and corridors, with the rest in guest rooms.
