PECOS, N.M. — Jane Fonda is putting her northern New Mexico ranch up for sale.

The Swan Land Company of Bozeman, Mont., announced Friday that the actress has listed her Forked Lightning Ranch just north of Santa Fe for $19.5 million.

The company said Fonda purchased the ranch near Pecos in 2000 and spent two years siting the home, known as River House.

The 9,600-square-foot dwelling was featured in the March 2014 issue of Architectural Digest.

“Forked Lightning Ranch has been a sanctuary and a place of great joy and recreation for me and my family,” Fonda said in a statement. “Many changes have occurred in my Iife since 2000 and I am no longer able to spend as much time on the Ranch as I once was. I feel the time has come to pass the Ranch on to a new custodian of this enchanted place.”

The ranch also includes the Hacienda, a 2,125 square-foot guest home, a 3,400 square-foot log house, a 12-stall equestrian facility and a gym.

According to the company, Fonda’s extensive personal collection of antiques, artwork, rugs, furniture and her literary collection at River House are available for purchase along with the ranch equipment and machinery.

The ranch was created in 1925 after the iconic rodeo promoter and “King of the Rodeo,” John “Tex” Austin purchased a series of parcels from the Pecos Pueblo Grant. The ranch once belonged to Dallas oilman E.E. “Buddy” Fogelson, who married actress Greer Garson in 1949.
