Today we are checking out Tranquility Ranch in Seely Lake, Montana, the 720-acre retreat owned by Art Ortenberg and his late wife, clothing designer Liz Claiborne. Ms Claiborne died earlier this year but the ranch has been on the market for a year. The ranch has a variety of water features including ponds, wetlands and a private 20-acre lake. The main log and stone home is located at the water's edge. It is close to 9,000 square feet but has just two bedrooms (guests stay elsewhere on the property) and includes an indoor pool. The land also includes a guest home, caretaker's home, a barn and a large riding arena. Christina Lewis of the Wall Street Journal's Private Properties column reports that Claiborne and Ortenberg retired to the ranch in 1989 to devote themselves to wildlife-preservation causes. The property was listed at $8.5 million but has been knocked down to $7.5 million. Not too many interior shots on the listing but it does seem like a very tranquil place, although a bit more Ralph Lauren than sporty Liz.
