One of Mirr Ranch Group’s listings in the Patagonia region of South America, Fundo Los Leones, is now offered for $3,400,000. The 1,700 acre fundo is located in the Aisén Province of Chile, on a secluded peninsula created by the River Palena and the Pitipalena Fjord as they meet the Pacific Ocean. Douglas Tompkins and his wife, Kristine Tompkins, who are known for the founding and/or operation of huge brands such as The North Face, Patagonia and ESPRIT, were the previous owners. The two are major conservationists in the region, as well as world-wide.
According to Patagonia Specialist Jeff Wells, “After years of travel throughout all of Chile, the Tompkins decided to buy Los Leones as their own private getaway saying it encompassed everything beautiful about Patagonia they had observed over the years.”
The property is a paradise for the fly-fisherman, as well as for those that enjoy yachting and boating. Out in the bay or in the river, one can fish for salmon, robalo or nice rainbow and brown trout. If you’re up for an adventure, one can hike to little-known fishing holes where fish as large as you can imagine have never even seen the shadow of a fisherman.
Improvements for the ranch are charming and beautiful. The property offers a Chilean-designed home with three bedrooms, as well as a “hobbit-like” complex of six cabins, each interestingly interconnected by wooden planked walkways.
Los Leones is easily accessible since it adjoins a land strip. It’s very simple to take a charter flight from Puerto Montt, a little less than an hour away.
All and all, the property is a nice fit for Mirr Ranch Group. As noted by Owner/Broker, Ken Mirr, “Fundo Los Leones is a high-end sporting property that adjoins conserved lands. This is a representative of Mirr Ranch Group’s portfolio of listings and commitment to international conservation efforts.”
