The Roy Rogers Double R Bar Ranch in Victorville, Calif. has come on the market for $8,500,000.
In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on the listing of the 67-acre ranch and museum at 14433 Roy Rogers Ranch Road in Victorville (Oro Grande mailing), which is about 81 miles northeast of Los Angeles. The listing just came on the market on January 15.
The property, which is right off of old Route 66, contains two houses, one of which is a four-bedroom house for a family, with three baths. Also on the property are: 1) a house that functions as a museum; 2) a red barn that Rogers built that now is used as a movie theater and banquet facility; 3) a 17-horse stable; and 4) a two-bedroom bunkhouse with one bath, a kitchen and a family room, according to listing information. The actual Roy Rogers museum itself was relocated in 2003 from the Double R Bar Ranch in Victorville to its current site in Branson, Missouri. The museum previously had been relocated to Victorville in 1976 after previously having been near Rogers' home in nearby Apple Valley (about 10 miles away).
From 1965 until his death, Rogers (1911-1998) owned the Double R Bar Ranch property, which is in the Mojave Desert alongside the Mojave River. Property records show that the current owner is Mission Viejo, Calif.-based Elisabella LLC. The ranch identifies the people behind the ranch as being Ernesto "Eric" and Anne Enriquez. The property consists of at least three parcels: a 31.8-acre tract at 14433 Roy Rogers Ranch Road, a 1.34-acre parcel at 14504 Roy Rogers Ranch Road, and at least one other parcel that we were not able to find in public records.
