The 17.8-acre property is the oldest working cattle ranch in the country and has been the site of the benefit concerts with performances by Paul Simon, Billy Joel, Lyle Lovett and Jimmy Buffett. “It’s like a historic landmark. Everybody knows Deep Hollow Ranch,” says listing agent Paul Brennan of Prudential Douglas Elliman Real Estate, who confirmed the sale.
The sellers, Gardner “Rusty” and Diane Leaver, held living history tours detailing the property’s past. Theodore Roosevelt was quarantined with his men at Deep Hollow in 1898, following his successful Battle of San Juan Hill. The property, an agricultural preserve, includes two original Carl Fisher barns; Fisher was the turn-of-the-century entrepreneur who founded the Indianapolis 500.
Drexler has been in the news this week for his role in the controversial $3 billion buyout of the clothing retailer by private equity investors.
