Pack Your Fleece: The North Face Founder's 1,750-acre Patagonia Farm Is for Sale
The Patagonia farm, called Fundo Renihue, is located in the Chilean Lake District and is nestled between the Renihue and Nero rivers.
As the primary home of the Conservation Land Trust, the property greets those who enter with magnificent views of the Michimahuida volcano, and of nearby forests, mountains, and rivers.
Spanning close to 1,750 acres, the farm is in a remote region that is most accessible by private plane or boat, though representatives from Sotheby’s, which is listing the farm, also recommend the option of a six-hour drive from El Tepual International Airport in Puerto Montt.
The neighboring Pumalin Park Sanctuary, which stretches from the heart of the Andes to the fjords of the Palena province, offers a tranquil escape, while the farm’s waterfront location allows for recreational activities that include fly-fishing and kayaking.
The space includes a renovated main house complete with five bedrooms and a gourmet kitchen, as well as a guest house, a barn, and a separate house for a caretaker.
Two organic gardens and three wood stove-heated greenhouses that line the property make cooking fresh farm-to-table cuisine a breeze, while equestrians can enjoy the farm’s horse riding area.
There are also management offices, repair shops, and a private airstrip.
Since most of the property sits within the Valdivian rainforest, there are also prime opportunities for bird watching, or enjoying activities like biking and hiking.
The farm is currently on sale for $10.5 million.
