Known by fans as the "Elvis Ranch," the rock ‘n’ roll star owned the Circle G estate in Lake Horn from 1966 to 1971.

Estate agent Rodger Motz expects the ranch to be snapped up by a fan and has already had one interested buyer contact him from Denmark. He said: “I knew before I listed the property that there were a lot of Elvis fans out there. But I have to admit, I was surprised to get a call from that far away."
The estate includes two barns and the lakeside cottage where Elvis spent his honeymoon with Priscilla. But the extensive ranch has been “zoned for development” and could be transformed into a new estate of homes and businesses. The famous honeymoon cottage will have to be preserved as part of the deal.
Previous attempts at turning it into a tourist resort had been turned down.
