Epstein’s huge estate was secured by surveillance cameras, secure gates, and fence during his lifetime. These are the photos from inside Jeffrey Epstein’s New Mexico ranch where the pedophile abused young girls.
This is the renowned Zorro Ranch, which spans nearly 8,000 acres of New Mexico desert and was immortalised by its previous owner, Jeffrey Epstein, for the first time.
The property where many girls claim they were raped and mistreated by the disgraced financier is seen in these photos obtained by DailyMail.
The ranch is listed for $27.5 million on the market. It was purchased by Epstein, 66, through his Cypress Inc. holding company in 1993 and is located between Santa Fe and Albuquerque.
These never-before-seen photographs now reveal a private empire that Epstein oversaw.

Two women offered tearful courtroom descriptions of sexual assault and suffering two days before he committed suicide in his New York jail cell while pending trial for sex trafficking.
Jane Doe, one of the survivors, recalled being transported to the Zorro Ranch when she was 15 years old in 2004. Epstein allegedly assaulted her for hours and took her virginity, according to her.
She was not the only one who had reported mistreatment on the sprawling estate. Virginia Giuffre also recounted being brought to the billionaire’s Santa Fe County ranch, which had a private airfield, as seen above.
Maria Farmer said that Epstein and his subordinate and co-conspirator Ghislaine Maxwell, 60, flew her sister Annie to the ranch in 1996 and assaulted her.
Epstein took extensive efforts to restrict access to the ranch, which was rented from the Bureau of Land Management for 423 acres, according to these sales particulars.
Last year, Zorro Ranch was put up for sale. It now stands in the New Mexico sun like a ghost town, stripped of all but the memory of its horrible owner.
Alberto Pinto, a prominent Moroccan-born photographer and interior designer, designed the interiors of the main mansion, which spans around 30,000 square feet. It has four bedrooms, a large indoor pool and gym, a grand sitting area, and a kitchen that is “exceptionally appointed for an entire cooking staff.”

Virginia Giuffre (left) and Annie Farmer (right) allege that Epstein flew them to his Zorro Ranch in New Mexico, where he sexually molested them while they were teenagers.
The rooms, which are mostly east facing, have views of the Sangre de Christo Mountains and the Cerro Pelon ranch.
Nearby is a two-bedroom caretaker’s house with vines creeping up the open veranda that overlooks a verdant garden.
A ‘small village of residences and working buildings’ just inside the main ranch entrance, Ranch Central, is where Epstein kept his workforce.
The cheerful looks of buildings such as the Yellow House, Red House, and Bunkhouse, painted in primary colors, contradict the gloom of the events that occurred on this site during Epstein’s occupancy.
The ranch was designed to be as self-contained and private as possible. Epstein and his ‘guests’ were convinced of this by its remoteness and overwhelming size.
It has its own fire station with a functioning engine and fire retention water tanks with a capacity of 5,000 gallons near the main house and 10,000 gallons in Ranch Central.
Glasshouses hold a large kitchen garden and provide a home for the ranch’s own unique ecology.
Larry Visoki, Epstein’s private pilot, stayed in the Blue House, which was near the property’s western edge. At Maxwell’s trial, Visoki, 62, testified about the high-profile passengers he flew aboard Epstein’s aircraft, such as former President Bill Clinton.
When Visoki was on the ground in New Mexico, he lived in a 1,650 square foot home with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a two-car garage, tennis court, and basketball hoops.
Close by are the stables, which cover 6,200 square feet and include eight stalls, a tack room, an office, hay and feed storage, and three small animal shelters.
The huge estate was secured by surveillance cameras, secure gates, and fence during Epstein’s lifetime.
Stephanie Garcia Richards, the New Mexico Land Commissioner, attempted and failed to terminate the state’s contracts with Epstein, telling CBS in 2019 that she did not believe the state should be doing business with a convicted pedophile.
Her efforts were hindered, as were her endeavors to visit the property, she claimed. She is probably hoping that whoever buys the property next has a lot less to conceal.
