Reagans Selling Mountain Retreat

Compiled From Wire Services

Former President Ronald Reagan and wife Nancy are selling Rancho del Cielo, the mountaintop retreat that served as the Western White House during the 1980s.

“Sadly, since President Reagan’s illness, it hasn’t been used,” Reagan spokeswoman Joanne Drake said Monday.

The realty agency handling the sale declined to give the asking price for the 688-acre ranch with a view of the Pacific.

“If there’s a bona fide buyer who contacts us, we will work with them,” said Zachary Wright of Sotheby’s Real Estate, Newport Beach.
