Lachlan Murdoch, son of media mogul Rupert Murdoch and a leader of the family’s $US62 billion business empire, has reportedly purchased a $US29 million estate in Aspen, Colorado, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Murdoch, 46, is co-chairman of News Corp. and executive chairman of 21st Century Fox. Earlier this year, the Financial Times reported that Murdoch has a passion for “mountain climbing and the great outdoors,” so his purchase of the Mopani Estate, located on Buttermilk Mountain with views of Red Mountain, is no big surprise.

The home was most recently listed by its previous owner, tech entrepreneur Mark Schaszberger, for $US44 million in June. It first appeared on the market for $US49 million in 2015. Amy Doherty and Joshua Saslove of Douglas Elliman had the listing.

Below, take a look around the 44.6-acre property.

The main home on the property has 1,254 square metres of space.

There's also a guesthouse, complete with two bedrooms and two baths.

An outfitted horse stable also sits on the property.

Those additions are connected to the main property by a 600m driveway.

Inside the main home, there are six bedrooms ...

The estate was first listed for $US49 million in 2015. Its price was later chopped to $US44 million.

Murdoch and his wife, Sarah, were represented by Maureen Stapleton of Sotheby's International Realty when they purchased the property for $US29 million.

The house was acquired from tech entrepreneur Mark Schaszberger and his wife, Trami.

The home is located on Aspen's Buttermilk Mountain.

For this Murdoch, who according to the Financial Times is 'not as buttoned-up as the typical corporate executive,' this Colorado estate appears to be a match.
