Golf great Greg Norman’s Colorado ranch is a haven for anyone who enjoys outdoor sports. Conveniently located between the ski meccas of Vail and Aspen and set on about 11,600 acres, with White River frontage for fly-fishing and miles of trails for hiking, riding, and Nordic skiing, Seven Lakes Ranch is the kind of paradise it’d be hard to leave.

A log ceiling crowns the dining room.

But Norman, who purchased the property in 2000, is planning to move back to his native Australia, The Wall Street Journal reports. Now on the market, the sprawling compound features multiple buildings, including the nearly 14,000-square-foot main lodge, which has soaring log-beamed ceilings, stone accent walls, picture windows, and eight bedrooms. The main residence features rustic decor.

There are also seven guest cabins and a historic dance hall dating from the 1800s. Additionally, the ranch has equestrian facilities, a fitness center, several barns, and a skeet-shooting course. The only thing missing is a golf course. Listed for $55 million, the 13,910-square-foot property has 28 bedrooms and 30 baths. Contact: Compass: 970-948-6005; compass.com
