Merv Griffin horse ranch sells in La Quinta

Merv Griffin’s former retreat in La Quinta has sold for $7 million.

The 39-acre equestrian compound includes a racetrack, a 5,000-square-foot Moroccan-style main house, four casitas, three one-bedroom staff quarters and apartments at both ends of the 16-stall stables for a total of 14 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms.

The estate was developed by L.A.-based Griffin in 1986 as a desert retreat for entertaining and work. He raised Arabian horses and, later, thoroughbreds. Other features include an infinity pool and a 2.5-acre fishing lagoon.

Griffin, who died in 2007 at 82, was a singer, talk show host and television producer. He helped create game shows including "Jeopardy" and "Wheel of Fortune."

The property was previously listed three years ago at $14.5 million.

Keith Markovitz, Tyler Morgan, Todd Monaghan of HK Lane/Christie’s International and Susan Canavan and Deirdre Coit of Canavan Coit/Coldwell Banker represented the Merv Griffin Trust.
