“High-Brow Rural Living”

January 20, 2012 By: Benjamin Clary

Looking for “a country western slice of high-brow rural living?”  Look no further than Forbes magazine, which has assembled a list of U.S.ranches and farms whose prices give its readers something to reach for. Many of the properties are in blue-ribbon trout country.  Whether in Jackson, WY ($175 million) or Steamboat, CO (a thrifty $59.9 million), there are plenty of properties here that typify atypical rural living.  The most attainable?  This north New Jersey equestrian estate for $11 million.  The died-and-gone-to-heaven choice?  Perhaps this 3,000 acre Sun River ranch in Augusta, MT.

Tax refunds are right around the corner.
