NASCAR champion Tony Stewart’s $30 million ranch is Indiana’s most expensive home

Even race car drivers have to slow down sometimes. For three-time NASCAR champion Tony Stewart, that meant relaxing at the Hidden Hollow Ranch, a custom-built luxury estate in his hometown of Columbus, IN.

But now Stewart has decided to drive away from the 415-acre game preserve, and she’s on the market for $30 million.

At that price, it topped the competition for Indiana’s most expensive home. For the curious, the current runner-up is this $6.5 million home in Nashville, IN.

That’s a big price tag to go along with a property that has the potential to be one of the biggest home sales in Hoosier State history. The main residence is almost 20,000 square feet, with a huge aquarium. There is also a 3,576 square foot guesthouse.

Dream house

“This is truly my dream home,” Stewart said in a statement. He added: “We enjoyed every inch of the pitch here. It has become my place to get away and relax with my family and friends. The best part is that there is always something to do here. The land is great for hunting and fishing, off-roading or just sitting on the porch and enjoying the stars at night. It’s the perfect mix of entertainment and relaxation.

For relaxation, the wooded area includes a 9-acre stocked lake for fishing. Elk, deer and turkey are all abundant in this licensed game reserve.

Stewart bought the land in 2004 and the beautiful home was completed in 2011.

The listing describes the getaway as “rustic luxury.” Constructed of lodgepole pine, the huge cabin features six en-suite bedrooms and wooded views.

The jaw-dropping features begin at the entrance, with a massive two-story waterfall and trout stream flowing below a footbridge. In the great room, you will see an 8,700 gallon freshwater aquarium. Finishes include stone fireplaces, hardwood floors, antler light fixtures, and vaulted ceilings.

The lower level is a play area for all ages with a bowling alley, playground, golf simulation room, gym and a lighted onyx bar.

The land also houses a large workshop and a garage for six cars. Plus, the location is less than an hour from Indianapolis International Airport.

Additionally, the property is zoned as a game reserve and tourist lodge, giving potential buyers many options for the property.

Video from Stewart’s YouTube channel follows him (driving, of course) as he tours the property, which includes many four-legged occupants.

In the video, he notes that the place keeps him very busy.

“There’s always something to do or do on the property,” he says.

Known as Smoke, Stewart, 50, won NASCAR Cup titles in 2002, 2005 and 2011. He is the only driver to win a championship in both IndyCar and NASCAR. He was inducted into the NASCAR Hall of Fame in 2019.
