After remaining in the Burnett family for 150 years, the legendary 6666 Ranches – otherwise known as Four Sixes Ranch – has hit the market in search of a tidy sum. US$341.7 million (AU$461.2 million) in total to be exact. Renowned for producing “genetically-superior” black angus cattle, its acclaimed quarter horses, and even appearing in the new season of Yellowstone starring Kevin Costner, this certainly wouldn’t be the worst retirement plan for anyone who has the requisite coin.
Divided into three parts – 6666 Ranch (US$192.2 million), 6666 Dixon Creek Ranch Division (US$137.4 million), and 6666 Frisco Creek Ranch Division (US$12.2 million) – here, you’re looking at over 266,555 acres of prime Texas land intended for agricultural endeavours. As noted by Mansion Global, that’s more than eighteen times the size of Manhattan. Hence (part of) why it’ll set you back almost have a billion.
In terms of more human-related amenities, there’s quite a comfortable – not to mention stately – 6666 Ranch main house featuring 13 bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, 3 powder rooms, 3 fireplaces, 2 kitchens, and a dining room.
Additionally, this main division holds:
- 20 employee houses
- 2 bunkhouses
- an airplane hangar
- a private landing strip
- and state-of-the-art water filtration plant
While 6666 Ranches is known predominantly for its cattle and horses, it also produces oil and gas in the Dixon Creek division – with the new owner positioned to receive a quarter of the mineral rights – as well as holding an ongoing water lease with Phillips Petroleum Company which paid out US$164,000 this year. So there are plenty of returns to be enjoyed.
