FOR SALE: Johnny Depp’s Keeneland Area Farm Relisted for $1.6 Million

Actor Johnny Depp, famous for The Pirates of the Caribbean films, has lowered the asking price for his 41-acre horse farm. The Kentucky property, which is named “Betty Sue’s Family Farm” in honor of Depp’s late mother, is now listed for $1.6 million. Depp, a Kentucky native, purchased the farm in 1995 for $950,000, sold it in 2001 for $1 million, and repurchased it in 2005 for $2 million, according to People magazine. More recently, the farm was listed for $2.9 million in December 2016, and when it did not sell, it went up for auction in September 2017. The highest auction bid of $1.4 million (from radio host Rick Dees) was declined. The property, located two miles from Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, features a 6,000-square-foot main home with six bedrooms and seven baths, along with three barns and a separate guest house. Bill Justice of Justice Real Estate has the listing.
