Former “Dallas” star Patrick Duffy is putting his nearly 390-acre Oregon ranch up for sale for $14 million.

Alan DeVries of Sotheby’s International Realty said the property is on the Rogue River outside of Medford, Oregon.

Duffy said he bought the first 130 acres of land in 1990 with his wife Karin Rosser for about $1.5 million. The actor, who has lived primarily at the ranch since the early 2000s, said the couple spent about 20 years and about $3 million putting the surrounding properties up for sale.

“My family always felt like we were custodians rather than owners,” said 73-year-old Duffy. “We kept our boundaries sacred”

Duffy said he first saw the property while fishing with friends. The land contained several structures, including the current main building, but was mostly wilderness.

“It was pristine,” he said. “There were no paved trails. There were a few trails through the woods and about a mile (just under a mile) of riverbank.”

Mr. Duffy sent Mr. Rosser to see him on the plane and said they had bought it. The main house has four bedrooms and is connected to a gallery where the couple displayed their art collection.They converted the caretaker’s cottage into his one-bedroom guest house with a loft. They’ve also added a building that includes a hot tub overlooking the river, an indoor lap pool structure, and a wine cellar built into the side of a mountain, all within walking distance.

Having purchased adjacent land over the years, we have acquired eight more homes and some pasture land, which we rent out to local ranchers. Duffy said one of his homes has been demolished, six have been rented out to tenants, and one is being used as a ranch manager’s home.

“We became a working ranch, but not our own animals,” he said.

He said the homestead, which dates back more than 100 years, still stands at the entrance to the site. In it he found an old stove, restored it and put it in the main building. However, most of the approximately 390 acres remain wilderness. DeVries says the property now has about two miles of riverfront.

For nearly a decade, Duffy and Rosser used the ranch as a family vacation away from their home base in Los Angeles. Then, in the early 2000s, when my kids went off to college, I decided to move there full-time.

Rosser died in 2017, and Duffy said he plans to move full-time to California or Colorado. DeVries said he plans to keep some parcels of land that aren’t attached to the main ranch.

Mr. Duffy is best known for his role as Bobby Ewing on the television series Dallas, which ran from 1978 to 1991. He also played Frank Lambert in the 1990s sitcom Step by Step. Today, he runs an online sourdough business called Duffy’s Dough with his partner Linda Pearl.
