I don't suppose you have and extra $279 million hanging around? If you do, this once-in-a-lifetime real estate deal near Gateway might be just what you're looking for.

Hendricks and his wife originally listed the main ranch at $149 million back in 2017. Now, they've decided to through in Gateway Canyons Resort. Of course, with the additional property, the price has gone up -- way up.

So, what do you get with the West Creek Ranch property? Here's a quick rundown.

  • 22,000-square-foot home
  • eight bedrooms and bathrooms
  • six fireplaces
  • chef's kitchen
  • pool
  • spa
  • five-car garage
  • stone two-level library
  • gym
  • staff quarters

Okay, so that sounds a little nicer than my house. I have:

  • 1,000 square-foot-home
  • no fireplace
  • no-car-garage
  • one bathroom
  • a backyard that extends about eight feet from the back door

What do you get with the addition of the resort? That includes:

  • automobile museum with 55 cars
  • airplane hangar and two helipads
  • helicopter
  • 72 suites
  • five restaurants
  • conference facilities
  • convenience store

I drove past Gateway Canyons Resort a few weeks ago on my way to the Pig Out. I swear the resort gets bigger every time I see it. It's as if they add on to that thing daily.

You should buy this for yourself. Do you say you don't want it? Okay, then you should buy it for me. I'm a nice guy. I've never really snooped around the Discovery Channel owner's private estate, but I've spent quality time at Gateway Canyons. Seriously, if I had a quarter of a billion dollars in my wallet, I'd buy it.
