5295 Sonoma Mountain Road
Turning into the paved driveway of this 10+ acre home one looks into the beautiful, almost 200 acres of stunningly natural and pristine preserved land that my home at 5295 Sonoma Mountain Road nestles into.
Continuing on the paved road to the property you will pass 4 large stable barn that is reminiscent of the TV show, Bonanza. Within the "Bonanza" barn area your horses can nibble on the delicious high producing organic apple trees. The huge 4 stall horse barn with 5 ton capacity of hay can immediately be turned into a thriving business for the equestrians visiting and enjoying the 175+ acre park adjacent to this home, that is dedicated to nature and equestrian trails. There is a expansive grazing area surrounding the barn.
Over 50 different fruit trees on the property provide delightful tons of organic fruit each year. You will also enjoy a large garden space year round.
The 2,451 square feet Sonoma Mountain range begins to rise above the neighboring town of Glen Ellen at the western edge of the Valley of the Moon. Here, on my property, is the highly sought after high altitude, steep sloped vineyard acres with great exposures that catch fog-free morning sun. With appellation acreage that begs to be sown due to these natural attributes, powerful but elegant Cabernet Sauvignons, the appellation's specialty, will grow superbly here on well draining soil. The irregular folds and crevices of the mountain's slopes also create microclimates suitable for limited production of a diverse range of other varieties of wines, including Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, as well as Pinot Noir and Zinfandel. Merlot also shines in the valley area like no where else, as the volcanic-laced, clay soil and a moderately cool climate results in longer hang times for the grapes. The long growing season helps maximize flavors and increase concentration, while the cool temperatures preserve the grapes natural acidity.
If a vineyard is not desired then the land can be used for other home sites or other agricultural endeavors, including animal husbandry. The property is completely fenced.
A billion dollar view is forever present that extends all the way to Saint Helena. The land is ripe for another homesite that also encompasses this grand view. The property taxes are quite low at just above six thousand dollars per year.
A bed and breakfast business can be easily achieved with the existing upgraded ranch home and another magnificent home can be added just a few hundred feet from there. There are multiple building sites like this with the same breathtaking views.
It is a extraordinarily rare to discover exclusive private living inside a world class regional park that is dedicated to the pristine conservation of such magnificent land. Living here on this property is like living in your own private park, and now that the regional park has opened, one would be living in their own private park within a very large, entertaining, unique and sought after environment where many business opportunities could present themselves immediately upon purchase, and prove successful in no time.
If excellent colleges are desired, just 15 minutes from this home are two outstanding educational institutions, Sonoma State University and Santa Rosa Junior College. Oftentimes, students will study at Santa Rosa Junior College and then transfer to Sonoma State for the remaining years of school.
The property is conveniently just under 60 miles north of San Francisco and there is also an airport in Santa Rosa, less than a 20 minute ride away from home.
At 5295 Sonoma Mountain Road you have it all: world class wine country living with the rare views and climate of Tuscany, Italy. Combine this with a 4 horse and 5 ton hay barn, redwood forest, over 50 abundantly producing fruit trees, vineyard land ready for planting, an upgraded 3 bedroom ranch home with pool, spa and infer-red sauna, 3 car garage, new Artesian well and direct access to Sonoma County's newest equestrian and nature trail regional park and nature preserve and you will find one of the most unique and valuable gem properties in all of California's wine country.
