This is our idea of paradise: Discovery Channel Founder’s Ranch!

Located at the border of Colorado and Utah this ranch looks like a piece of heaven.

Spreading on roughly 7,000 acres, John Hendricks’ ranch comes with an observatory, and an airplane hangar.

The ranch is an assemblage of four ranches purchased by Discovery Channel founder in the 1990s.

Boasting approx. 22,000-square-foot in Southwestern Pueblo-style the home is a true getaway gem.

It features breathtaking views of the surrounding multi-colored cliffs and La Sal Mountains.

Inside the house boasts an elevator and a two-level circular stone library with a domed roof.

If he is going to sell it, the estate would set a new record for the region, according to listing agent Kerry Endsley of LIV Sotheby’s International Realty.

“I’ve always been interested in space and science, I can’t remember a time when I didn’t have a telescope,” said Mr. Hendricks, 65.

He built a three-bedroom log cabin just because he wanted to “enjoy hiking and being in a whole different landscape,” he said.

Mr. Hendricks placed the property in a permanent conservation easement, which means you can never develop it.

All things considered, this ranch looks like paradise. I would buy it. Would you?
