TV6 Tours Rita Crundwell's Homes


For months, we've seen Crundwell's property from the outside, now we're getting a firsthand look at where some of that $53 million from Dixon may have gone.  

The first stop on the tour of Crundwell's homes and ranch was a house Crundwell built and owned, but rented out to a family who's been living there for about six years. 

The three thousand square foot home has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, an unfinished basement, and 40 acres of farm land. 

All the things inside are the renter's property and not up for sale, but the home and most of the appliances are up for grabs.  

Crundwell started plans to build the house in 2005; right now it has an offer of $450,000. 

An employee who used to run her ranch is currently renting the home. He didn't want to go on camera but says he hopes to be the one to buy the house so he doesn't have to move.  

The next stop was Crundwell's house in Dixon, where US Marshals say she spared no expense in building and customizing the home from the customized cowhide furniture to the master bedroom suite.  

This home is equipped with everything-the grand master suite has a walk in closet, full bath, sitting room and lofted office.      

In the basement is a tanning bed and exercise equipment, and outside, an in ground pool, hot tub, and air conditioned dog kennel. 

The western-themed décor and customized furniture is everywhere, all  the way from the cowhide cabinets and revolver chandelier, down to the smallest details like a horse shoe embedded in the floor of the shower.  

Most everything in the home is for sale online, going for anywhere from several hundred to several thousand dollars. 

Crundwell's home has a bit of personal history too. It sits on her family's estate-right next to her childhood home.   

Just down the street from Crundwell's home is her ranch, complete with a sitting room and full kitchen, and stamped with her initials. 

All the shelves which used to be full of winning trophies are mostly wiped clean. Her barns once full of horses and stalls have been completely wiped out with all the proceeds soon to go back to where they came from, the city of Dixon.
