A sprawling New Mexico ranch belonging to deceased financier and accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein is on the market for $27.5 million.
The 12-square-mile Zorro Ranch was put up for sale by Epstein’s estate and includes a 26,700-square-foot mansion and a private airstrip with a hangar and helipad, according to the listing by Neil Lyon Group at Sotheby’s International Realty Santa Fe.
Epstein killed himself in jail in 2019 at age 66 while awaiting trial on charges of sex trafficking girls in New York and Florida.
The listing was reported Thursday by the Wall Street Journal, which said proceeds from the sale would go toward compensating those who filed claims against Epstein and paying taxes and creditors.
Epstein purchased the property in southern Santa Fe County in 1993. Besides the mansion, the ranch includes several other residences, including an off-the-grid cabin, the Santa Fe New Mexican reported.
Local real estate professionals have said the highly publicized accusations against Epstein probably won’t have much effect on what the ranch and its massive mansion ultimately fetch on the market, the New Mexican reported.
