Doping allegations isn't the only problem plaguing Lance Armstrong. The cyclist's sprawling Texas ranch was recently sold. Al Koehler who bought the property says he paid nothing close to the listed value of $10 million. Armstrong has owned the house since 2004. Although sold for much less, the price does nothing to diminish the spectacular nature of this resort-style residence.

Lance Armstrong sits and looks out the window from his former home near Austin, Texas.
A view of the gigantic living room, dining space and adjoining gourmet kitchen, which features beamed ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, a stone fireplace, and in the kitchen, a large island and breakfast counter.
The hilltop two-story home boasts five bedrooms and five baths over 5,201 square feet of interior living space.
The cyclist's Texan hideaway is surrounded by exquisite landscaping and endless views of lush hill country.
The new owner will also enjoy 1,886 feet of prime frontage on the Pedernales River, as well as seven miles of hiking trails, a swimming pool, a guest house, and a two-car garage.
The seven-time Tour de France winner has dated a number of high profile celebs including Kate Hudson, Sheryl Crow and Tori Burch who have all undoubtedly enjoyed all of the many amenities of this secluded ranch.
Perhaps the most riveting feature of this 447.8 acre property is its access to Deadman's Hole, a secluded and pristine pool of water that only 17 neighboring landowners have deeds of ownership.
The cyclist royally angered his neighbors in 2005 when he constructed a small dam that reportedly clouded the sentiment in the popular swimming hole. After a very publicized spat with his neighbors, Armstrong ended up shelling out $850,000 in legal and consulting fees and clean up costs.
