Description

Stunning 932 acre retreat near Mt. Madonna, off of a historic stagecoach trail and less than an hour from Palo Alto and Silicon Valley. The bucolic 932 acre Bates Ranch noted for 1950's William Wurster designed main house, enjoys a simply gorgeous setting under heritage oaks, sweeping lawns and well tended gardens. The sprawling Ranch style home includes a over-size pool & tennis court adjacent main house plus a new 3 bed/3 bath guest house over-looking part of the 22 acre-vineyard. Peace, privacy & tranquility afford a place for renewal & relaxation. The 22 acres of award winning Cabernet, Cabernet Franc & Grenache are well know by several wineries and a number of fine labels are produced regionally. The Ranch is currently in the Williamson Act & supports a 30+ pair cattle operation. There are 8 additional APN's included to make up the 932 acres.

A week-end retreat, a summer place or full-time ranch, abundant fresh water springs ensure a verdant landscape. A natural spring-fed lake offers haven for water fowl and opportunities for canoeing & fishing. Beautiful Little Arthur Creek is a bonus and boarders the west side of the property under a corridor of mature water loving trees. Private trails for hiking, horseback riding or mountain biking. There are also 2 barns, several corrals, stables and a full-time 3 bedroom 2 bath caretaker's home, with an additional 3 bed/2 bath income property. Expand the vineyard, equestrian facilities & plant an olive grove and host private recreational think tank weekends! This property has been in the same family for sixty years and has all of the grace and charm of yesteryear with the location and recreational opportunities sought by today's hardworking Silicon Valley executive!
