'Many changes have occurred in my life since 2000 and I am no longer able to spend as much time on the Ranch as I once was. I feel the time has come to pass the Ranch on to a new custodian of this enchanted place.'

The 9,600-square-foot dwelling includes the Hacienda, a 2,125 square-foot guest home, a 3,400 square-foot log house, a 12-stall equestrian facility, and a gym.

'When Robert Redford came to visit, he thought the house was at least a hundred years old,' the two-time Oscar winner told Architectural Digest in March.

'It's where I healed after my marriage [to Ted Turner] — it's where I came to understand my life so far. I wrote my memoirs here. It has a deep calling.'
