A sprawling Riverside County ranch once owned by Western movie star John Wayne has sold for $11.25 million, down 6% from the initial request.

Located in Hemet, the 2,000-acre Peacock Ranch has a three-bedroom, 3,000-square-foot stucco home dating from 1950, an even older barn, and stunning views of the surrounding valley and Palomar Mountain.

The property was listed for $12 million when it went on the market in January, though it had been on and off for years. In 2018, it was listed for $8 million and marketed as a potential marijuana farm.

Rancho Pavoreal is located halfway between San Diego and Palm Springs and is a 20-minute drive from Temecula Wine Country. It is fenced and fenced crosswise with space for horses and cattle.

Three wells, horse trails, and a three-car garage add to the highlights.
