Ten years after founding the Discovery Channel in 1985, John Hendricks discovered this slice of paradise, known as West Creek Ranch, and fell in love with it. Since acquiring it way back then, he has added adjacent land parcels to the property, resulting in a 6,919-acre estate full of geological treasures. Measly in comparison to the acreage, but massive in size, the 22,000-square-foot main house designed by Jamie Daugaard blends in elegantly with it’s untouched natural surroundings. A jaw-dropping Colorado ranch like this will cost you $149 million, however, which may be why it’s been on the market for over a year.When he initially listed the property in June of 2017, Hendricks gushed about it saying, “West Creek Ranch is a place where the earth really opens up to tell its story. When you look up at the walls of the canyons, it's all these layers of earth that go back 300 million years.” He clearly cares deeply about the integrity of the land and preservation of nature considering he placed almost 4,000 acres of the property in a conservation easement, according to Business Insider
