Inside Tom Ford’s former New Mexico ranch, now listed for $9M

New Mexico’s River Ranch, aka Estancia del Rio — which is built on 1,000 acres once owned by fashion designer (and Santa Fe native) Tom Ford — is on the market for $8.95 million.

It first hit the market for $12 million in 2019.


The four-bedroom, 4½-bath steel-and-concrete home at 411 Mesa Prieta Road in Youngsville is 4,500 square feet.

It was built, along with additional casitas, around 2011 to 2012 “to take advantage of the pink and red hills and valley of the Piedra Lumbre land grant,” made famous by artist Georgia O’Keeffe, notes the listing.

Ford owned the land before he bought a bigger and “more glamorous” ranch, known as Cerro Pelon, which sits on 20,662 acres and is anchored by a modern concrete home with glass walls and a reflecting pool, designed by Pritzker
