John Hendricks West Creek Ranch Discovery Channel

John Hendricks is the founder of the Discovery Channel and a very wealthy man. He’s just put his 7,000-acre Colorado ranch on the market for $149 million.

It is hard to even wrap your mind around how much land 7,000 acres is but the photos below will help. The property is primarily situated in Colorado but part of it bleeds over into Grand County, Utah. John Hendricks’ property is named West Creek Ranch, and the amenities are seemingly endless.

Often times when you see enormous estates such as this there are one or two ‘wow’ factors, but John Hendrick has these all throughout his West Creek Ranch. For instance, there is an astronomical observatory that is outfitted with a 20″ Meade telescope and rotating copper dome. The West Creek Ranch is located in the middle of nowhere and this means unencumbered views of the stars. The best stargazing is done when there is no light pollution, and that’s exactly the case here.

The main house on the property features 22,000 square feet of luxury. John Hendricks designed one of the greatest ranch estates I’ve ever seen. Beyond the massive main house, there is a grass landing strip for small planes, a horse stable, helipad, pools, and bison pasture. The photographs below can be seen on the LIV Sotheby’s International Realty website where they’ve listed John Hendricks’ ranch for $149 million. There are 14 bedrooms, 12 full bathrooms, and 2 partial bathrooms. Let’s take a look at this exquisite ranch property owned by John Hendricks, the founder of the Discovery Channel:
