Ever dreamed about owning a ranch in Montana? How about Arizona? Or better yet, both. For $50 million you can make it happen thanks to Christie's International Real Estate, which is offering two properties owned by real estate mogul Morton Fleischer.

Fleischer, chairman and co-founder of Store Capital Corp., was an industry disruptor back before the term became popular via his real estate investment trust, Franchise Finance Corp. of America, according to Forbes.

Fleischer, who used the impressive properties to escape the pressures of Wall Street, made the unusual decision to market them both together in one mega-deal aimed at a fellow master of the universe who wants a rural escape or two without sacrificing anything in the way of luxury.

The 100-acre Arizona property is in Scottsdale while the other ranch spanning 7,000-acres is just outside Lewistown, Montana. "It is the balance between new and old," Christie's says. "Desert and mountain. Summer and winter. These two ranches belong together."

The Montana property features an 8,000 square foot hand-crafted log house that's described as "1880's on the outside, but fully fitted with 2030 comfort and luxury on the inside." The Arizona spread meanwhile has an 8,700 square foot Argentinian-inspired estancia built around a great room.

The Arizona estate also includes its own art museum, world-class equestrian facilities, a shooting range, swimming pool and tennis court. In Montana meanwhile you've got a working cattle ranch, an estate manager to look after a healthy population of elk, deer, antelope and wild turkey, and 23 miles of fencing to contain it all.

Ask really nicely and maybe he'll take $49 million and even throw in an antler chandelier.
