Robert, an Academy award-winning actor and director, is best known for his starring roles in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Sting, and The Horse Whisperer – the 1998 Western that inspired the property’s name. The California-born actor and activist also received a Presidential Medal of Freedom from Barack Obama in 2015.
The ranch, located 16 miles north of Sundance and 50 miles east of Salt Lake City, boasts two bedrooms in the main farmhouse. The home also includes several contemporary living spaces that showcase the home’s 100-year old heritage, including stone fireplaces that act as the focal point in the living room.

Yes, while the interiors have the power to delight, the ranch’s most impressive feature is its sublime Wasatch Mountain landscape, including the peak of the 12,000-foot Mount Timpanogoswhich envelops the verdant estate. The land is also situated on the fringe of Deer Creek Reservoir and the Provo River.
Alongside these domestic spaces, this working ranch includes several barns and a horse pasture which Robert used to create a sanctuary for the horses. These hobby houses include a further two working kitchens and wooden benches which are suitable for farm work.
Robert has lived on the ranch since 1996 but has listed the home with plans to focus on his other ranch in ‘Sundance in nearby Provo Canyon,’ he shared with The Wall Street Journal. The actor also owns homes in California and Santa Fe in New Mexico.
