Alibaba founder Jack Ma is the new owner of a sprawling property in the Adirondack mountains in upstate New York.
Ma quietly snapped up the property for US$23 million, largely for conservation purposes and occasionally as a private retreat, according to the Wall Street Journal.
For a fraction of his net worth — Ma has a US$36 billion fortune by Bloomberg estimates — the Chinese e-commerce billionaire with a penchant for wild game got 28,100 acres of the Adirondacks, complete with trout streams, woodlands and a maple syrup-making business.
The estate has more than 14.5 kilometers of the St. Regis River and includes a 1940s log camp behind its gated entrance.
There are two homes on the property and a horse barn.
Ma bought the property in May and plans to form a non-profit company to manage it.
