Lovers of westerns, this property will make you dream. A replica of a Wild West town in the heart of rural New Zealand was released for $ 7.5 million, reports CNN. Mellonsfolly Ranch was built in 2006, modeled on Wyoming townships in the 1860s. The site includes a boardwalk, a sheriff’s office, a courthouse that also doubles as a movie theater, and a saloon.
The property, converted into a hotel, is hidden in a vast hilly landscape of central New Zealand. The property has a total of 20 beds and 10 bathrooms. Westerners will find all the specificities of the time: billiards, swinging doors, woodwork and fireplaces …
New Zealand International Realty specifies that multiple activities are offered in the rural region of Ruatiti. “Summer is for hunting, fishing and swimming in the rivers that wind through the valleys. And during the winter, (the owners) enjoy the nearby picturesque ski town of Ohakune and the ski areas of Mont Ruapehu “, indicate the real estate agents in the description of the property, relayed by CNN.
It is not the first Far West town to go on sale. True ghost towns of the time found takers across the United States, including a deserted California township that cost $ 1.4 million in 2018, CNN recalls. The city of Dunton, in Colorado, has been transformed into a luxury complex, a century after being deserted.
