For $250 Million, You Can Buy T. Boone Pickens’s Panhandle Ranch

Pickens has made a few improvements over the years. In 1988 he began constructing the Lodge, now a 25,000-square-foot compound with sleeping quarters and meeting spaces. Near the compound are two guest houses, the pub, the chapel, the gun room, the kennel, a tennis court, a skeet/trap range, and a golf course with two fairways and greens.

In 2000, Boone began building a San Simeon-esque castle that now stands atop an artificial hill overlooking an artificial lake. (Michael Hardy/Texas Monthly)
