There’s nothing flashy about the Plaza Blanca Ranch that actress Shirley MacLaine is selling in Abiquiu, NM.

The Academy Award winner and new age thinker, 80, has used the 7,451-acre property as a place to meditate and write. She added onto the adobe-style main house, making two separate residences, plus a spiritual retreat space in a subterranean level.

There is also a yurt, caretaker’s house, swimming pool, horse barn and chicken coop — all of it off-the-grid and sustainable, with greenhouses for growing food.

Over the years, MacLaine hosted spiritual retreats at the ranch and spent a lot of time there with her dog, Terry. From her porch, she says she has observed UFOs, and she built a labyrinth of rocks to aid in meditation.

In televised tours, her mantle was crowded with Academy Awards and Golden Globes, and the table in her dining room was the one used in the film “Terms of Endearment.”

MacLaine told The Wall Street Journal she consulted a psychic about the listing price and decided on $18 million. The ranch was a spiritual retreat for her and a place where she spent a lot of time, but the actress said she wanted to spend more time in Santa Fe to be less reclusive.

The listing is held by Lynden Galloway and Susan Kline at Sotheby’s International Realty in Santa Fe.
