NASCAR Driver Tony Stewart's Home Has Twitter In An Uproar

You just have to smile when you see the $30 million listing for Tony Stewart's 415-acre Hidden Hollow Ranch, just west of Columbus, Indiana. It's every sportsperson's dream come true! If you could take the coolest parts of a Bass Pro Shop, like the huge antler rack chandelier, a two-story waterfall, and trout stream, and add a game room, golf simulator, and bowling alley, wouldn't you want to? Bet there's someone in your life who would! Stewart has called this his "dream home" and a place where he could get away and relax with family and friends, per New York Post. Oh, and in case you need more get-away space from your guests, there is a 3,500 square foot guest house on the property listed by the Carrie Holle Group.

Stewart is selling the massive 19,713 square foot log cabin home that he built in 2011 on a private 9-acre lake stocked with trophy-sized bass and game fish. A full-time gamekeeper lives on-site, said Indianapolis Monthly. Stewart's professional career has been even more amazing than the "dream home" he built to relax in. He is the only race car driver in history to win championships in both IndyCar and NASCAR.

Tony Stewart's massive log cabin is listed for $30M

Tony Stewart, 50, is considered semi-retired as a race car driver, though you wouldn't know it from the non-stop travel schedule he maintains as co-owner of Stewart Haas Racing with Gene Haas, and owning a couple of other race tracks. But, even bigger news than his home and racing career is probably the long-time bachelor's November 2021 marriage to one of the most prominent drag car racers, Leah Pruett

Stewart's six-bedroom, eight-bathroom home is also zoned as a bed and breakfast. That, and the fact that the 415-acre property includes a licensed hunting reserve filled with turkey, deer, and elk, might result in attracting a sale to a corporate buyer rather than as a private home, wrote Indianapolis Monthly. This is an American-made home. It's built with natural materials sourced from across the U.S., including lodgepole pine from the Rockies, white oak and red hardwood floors from New York, stone from Texas and Indiana bedrock for the fireplaces. Light fixtures were custom made in Utah and the antler rack chandelier in Alaska. The property has a six-car garage and is surrounded on two sides by wrought iron fencing that ranges from 8- to 10-feet tall.

Stunning kitchen with commercial grade appliances

The stunning kitchen has a Wolf range, Sub-zero refrigerator, a Hibachi grill with a commercial-grade exhaust system, and cabinets made of hickory and knotty Alder. There are four fireplaces, including one in the breakfast room. Walls of windows look out over the magnificent property from every room, as seen from the Zillow listing. 

There are four bedrooms on the upper level, each with its own bathroom. The master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling with floor-to-ceiling windows on the gable sidewall. There's also a massive fireplace for those cold Indiana nights. Like everything else in the lodge, the master bathroom is huge. It has two separate vanity locations, a glassed walk-in shower, and a raised jetted tub. No window treatments are necessary when you look out onto this private reserve. If you want to step out onto the second-story porch, you can sit and enjoy the view overlooking your private lake.

The great room features a fully stocked indoor stream

If the house seems familiar to you, it's because it looks a lot like a Bass Pro Shop, according to comments on a post on Twitter. Once you get past the fact this is actually a private residence, you'll realize it has much more than just the grand entrance and great room. 

The 8,500 square foot lower level, in what Indianapolis Monthly called a "man cavern," is the place to hang out and have fun. In addition to the two-lane bowling alley, golf simulator room, pool table, and full-service bar, Tony Stewart has arcade games, his collection of old-style gas pumps, and even a wall-mounted IndyCar racer. Whether any of those items will stay after the sale is unknown, but as the old adage in real estate goes, everything is negotiable.  If you want to see the entire home, your best be is to watch the full tour of Hidden Hollow Ranch. Properties like this one don't have open houses.
