Robert Redford’s Magnificent 30-Acre “Horse Whisper Ranch” In Utah Hits The Market

Robert Redford, a renowned actor, businessman, environmentalist, and patron of film festivals, has put up for sale a very spectacular horse ranch in Utah.



Tragically, younger users of CelebrityNetWorth might not be able to name a single Robert Redford film. If you fall into that category, do yourself a favor and find a way to watch “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” (1969), “The Sting” (1973), “All the President’s Men” (1976), and “The Natural” (1984). One of the greatest cowboy/bank robbery films ever made is the original one, “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.” It’s the ideal movie. Additionally, it altered both the professional and emotional trajectories of Redford’s life.

Robert acquired his first piece of land in Provo, Utah, in 1963. On the two acres of land in the ski resort of Timp Haven, he constructed a simple A-Frame cabin. The name of the resort was a nod to Mount Timpanogos, which is close by.

In 1968, a year before “Butch Cassidy” was actually released, Robert used his salary to purchase the entire town of Timp Haven. He changed the area’s name to Sundance Mountain Resort after the film’s premiere and huge success.

For $40 million, Robert sold the Sundance mail-order catalog company in 2004. In December 2020, he sold the 2,600-acre resort to a private equity group for an undisclosed (presumably enormous) amount.

But that doesn’t mean Robert is fully divested from Utah. In Sundance, the Redford family still owns a 1,800-acre ranch.

As you can see from the video above, the new owner will enjoy absolutely unreal mountain and creek views. Two studios in the old west style and a rustic farmhouse are on the site.

“Horse Whisper Ranch is more than just a haven for your beloved horses or a trip back in time. It is the continuation of a legacy and stewardship enriched by one of our generation’s most celebrated film directors and well-known conservationists. Horse Whisper Ranch is a metaphor for your return to a peaceful life, a life blessed by all the blooming things and full of wonderful moments.”
