A sprawling Pennsylvania hunting estate spanning thousands of acres and owned by Kip Fulks, the co-owner of sportswear brand Under Armour, hit the market last month for $13.5 million.
Mr. Fulks, 44, who is currently on a sabbatical from the company, bought the estate known as North Fork Lodge, in 2007 for around $7.8 million as a hunting property and personal family retreat, said listing broker Keith Lenard of Hall and Hall.
“The lodge is reminiscent of a different era,” Mr. Lenard said. Built in 1921, it has dark wood paneling and taxidermy on the walls. Mr. Fulks did some remodels of the home, but nothing major, Mr. Lenard said, and he tried to retain the property’s original character.
But Mr. Lenard said, “The property is much much more than the house.”
The house sits on more than 7,150 acres of land, making it one of Pennsylvania’s largest properties owned by a private individual, according to the listing, though Mansion Global could not independently confirm this.
Other buildings on the estate are an adjacent kitchen and dining facility with additional lodging, a ski chalet and an accessory building, according to the listing. Natural amenities include a lake, a stocked bass pond, a private ski slope, skeet and trap shooting areas and plenty of space for deer, bear and turkey hunting.

The estate also has roughly 150 miles of private roads and several new bridges, the listing said.
“It’s nearly impossible to find something of that size in that part of the world,” Mr. Lenard said. The property is in Elk County, Pennsylvania, roughly a three hour drive from Pittsburgh and five hours from Philadelphia. “Size does matter in the world of real estate and this is a large property.”
Mr. Fulks, who could not be reached for comment, is selling now that he doesn’t spend as much time at the property. “His kids are now five and seven and it’s all little league and soccer games,” Mr. Lenard said. “They can’t get out as much as they used to be able to.”
