Have a taste for the Wild Wild West, but have your boots on the ground way down in the Peach State?
Ron Wallace, the former president of UPS International, is selling his Georgia mansion, and the kicker is that there’s a replica of an old western town hidden within the Neoclassical-style home. On the market for just shy of $9 million, the roughly nine-acre estate, located in Milton, about 30 miles north of Atlanta, includes a 4,400-square-foot wing modeled after the historic town of Tombstone, Arizona, and the 1993 movie that tells its story.

Altogether, the property has approximately 25,000 square feet of living space and comprises four bedrooms and eight bathrooms. According to The Wall Street Journal, Wallace and his wife shelled out a cool $900,000 for the vacant piece of land back in 2002 and dropped an additional $11 million on construction. The home was completed in 2004, and Six Flags amusement park set designer Rick Clark was brought in to create a one-of-a-kind space wing to hold and display Wallace’s collection of Western memorabilia. The frontier town replica, which feels a lot like walking onto a movie set, is complete with faux dirt roads, a sheriff’s office, a saloon, a newspaper office, and a general store.
“We had started to put moss on the beams to try to make them look old, but the builder came back and said, ‘Don’t put any more moss on it; we’ve got to take everything off,’ because there is no moss in the original town of Tombstone,” Wallace told the WSJ.
Also into cars? Wallace, an avid car collector and former professional racer, had a 14-vehicle, temperature-controlled garage and workshop installed. Plus, the drive-in basement is large enough to accommodate up to 25 additional cars. The palatial spread offers tons of other amenities, too. Among the mansion’s more traditional luxuries are a movie theater and a fitness studio with a sauna and steam room.
Inside, you’ll find lofty 25-foot ceilings, custom millwork, marble floors, and glossy mahogany cabinetry throughout. Outside, the landscaped grounds feature two ponds, picturesque waterfalls, a tree-lined driveway, and a front yard so big, you can actually land a helicopter on it. Wallace told the Journal that the abode is fresh off an $800,000 renovation.
“Truly unique and exceptional in quality, stature, and livability, it is a luxury home like no other,” notes the listing, which is held by Bonnie Smith of Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s International Realty.
