    Larger than NYC and L.A. Asking price $725MM. Tons of history!

    Howard related because he loves to overpay for real estate and it comes with horses...

    Interesting story:

    For $725 Million, You Can Buy a Texas Ranch That's the Size of a Small Nation

    “It takes days to see it all,” says Bernard Uechtritz. The real estate broker is steering his black Ford F-350 pickup over one of the hundreds of miles of roads ribboning the W.T. Waggoner Estate Ranch 175 miles (280 kilometers) northwest of Dallas. Squinting into the sun, Uechtritz gestures to the sky on his right. “Everything you can see, as far as the eye can see, is the ranch,” he says. He points straight ahead, then behind him, then left. “Each horizon is this ranch.”

    I'd put my house in the middle of it and surround the property with a large fence.

    If I had that kind of money, a modest ranch house is all you would see, with 3-4 levels under ground.

    Funny thing is a guy like Bill Gates could buy this and it wouldn't even leave a blemish on his fortune.

    Manhattan is 77 acres. This site must be huge. Takes at least 15 minutes to get to North midtown from world trade center in a bus.

    I would rather buy an entire mountain in Vermont and live like the Unibomber except with electricity and heat. Imagine how many squatters and trespassers you'd have on 510,000 acres. At least on my mountain the winter would clear the riffraff out.
