Lord of the Rings
CARROLL COUNTY | VIRGINIA | $94,900 | PROPERTY ID: 962871
The majestic peaks, fjords and meadows of New Zealand may have subbed in for the fictional lands of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth on the big screen, but we still have plenty of landscapes here in North America in which to live out your Bilbo Baggins fantasies. To start, how about this hardwood-shaded yurt in the rolling hills of southwestern Virginia, the perfect country hideaway for aspiring hobbits? Live simply in the airy yurt while developing the 37-acre parcel into your very own woodsy shire.
Game of Thrones
TRAVIS COUNTY | TEXAS | $8,500,000 | PROPERTY ID: 2903771
Welcome to the Lone Star State’s very own answer to Westeros’ King’s Landing (obviously, without Game of Thrones’ incessant fratricide, regicide—and pretty much any other kind of ‘-cide’ you care to mention). This decidedly more tranquil estate sits atop a promontory on Lake Travis, located only a few miles northwest of vibrant Austin, Texas. Regal trappings include a great room and stone fireplace, a banquet-worthy kitchen and dining area, plus manicured gardens and lakeside pathways perfect for all your whispered courtly gossip.
HUERFANO COUNTY | COLORADO | $1,500,000 | PROPERTY ID: 2327320
You can be the new sheriff in town in this very real Colorado ghost town—yes, seriously, your own ghost town. Located in the Cuchara Valley area of southern Colorado in the shadow of peaks and mountain passes, this 253-acre former settlement was first established in the 1870s during the expansion of the Denver & Rio Grande Railway between Denver and Santa Fe. Historic buildings here include a restored homesteader’s cabin, guesthouse, tavern-cum-dancehall and former train depot.
TETON COUNTY | WYOMING | $39,000,000 | PROPERTY ID: 997271
The 1991 classic, City Slickers, saw Billy Crystal and his bumbling friends set the lowest bar ever for wannabe urbanite cowboys and cowgirls. Learn the true lay of the land at this 1,848-acre working cattle ranch in the shadow of Wyoming’s tooth-edged Grand Tetons and on the doorstep of Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks. Walton Ranch, established in 1958 by geologist and oilman Paul Walton, boasts its own herd of resident elk as well as wildlife including eagles and bears, not to mention exclusive fishing access to three miles of Wyoming’s famed Snake River. That’s what we call slick.
PENOBSCOT COUNTY | MAINE | $330,000 | PROPERTY ID: 997271
Like the kids in the 1993 comedy, Indian Summer, we too cherish memories of childhood summers spent dreamily by lakes, shores and rivers. Make these dreams a new reality at this classic New England resort, set on the shore of Maine’s Nesowadnehunk Lake, considered one of the best wild trout-fishing spouts in New England. The six-bedroom Lodge at Camp Phoenix resides within a condominium community beneath the broad shoulders of 5,270-foot Mount Katahdin, Maine’s highest peak and northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail.
MONROE COUNTY | FLORIDA | $95,000,000 | PROPERTY ID: 2851011
Some reports speculate that Daniel Defoe based his fictional Robinson Crusoe on the real-life shipwreck of Scotsman Alexander Selkirk on a chain of islands off the coast of Chile. For those with castaway tendencies but in need of more modern-day amenities, you won’t go wrong on southern Florida’s Pumpkin Key. A 26-acre private island to the north of Key Largo, it’s a world away from the hedonism of nearby South Beach, Miami—but only a matter of minutes by boat to the Keys and a private club with its own airstrip for private jets. Read it and weep, Mr. Crusoe.
The Wolf of Wall Street
NASSAU COUNTY | NEW YORK | $14,800,000 | PROPERTY ID: 2874596
When he wasn’t motivating his employees to go out and make some serious cash, we’re pretty sure The Wolf of Wall Street was one long highlight reel of Leonardo DiCaprio, as Jordan Belfort, partying in a series of swank digs. Belfort’s real-life Long Island mansion was reportedly located in ultra-posh Nassau County. Here, a parade of majestic mansions and estates provide cover to Manhattan’s über rich and powerful, including this gated, 14,000-square-foot mansion with its own tennis courts, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, movie theater—and, yes, manicured driveway where Belfort-cum- DiCaprio might very well total his expensive Italian sports car after one of those aforementioned benders.
