Peaceful, quiet, end of lane and gated – This charming ranch estate has the ultimate location: less than an hour from the Golden Gate bridge, with a truly pastoral setting in West Petaluma. Gently rolling hills frame the property, giving it a nice, secluded feel, but the landscape is open with expansive views and trees. There is plenty of elbow room here! Expansive property covers almost 12 acres with the house set near the middle, for extra privacy.
This will be perfect for horse or animal lovers or could possibly be planted with vines to make the ultimate wine country estate. Why not do both? The charming home is stylish country, with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a huge stone hearth, sunken living room and hardwood floors. Great floor plan gives you two bedrooms and a bath on the main level with the master suite upstairs. Step out onto the private deck to enjoy the wonderful views and find your own little piece of paradise.
But Hold Your Horses! Just a short walk from the home is an 11,000 sq. ft. ridge-top barn, currently set up with about 14 stalls, 3 tack rooms, 7 grooming stations, hay storage, space for a workshop and a small indoor riding arena. Off the barn are 15 paddocks, 8 field shelters and a dozen pastures, all fenced and cross fenced. At the bottom of the hill, and accessed by a separate drive is the all weather arena, which is about 100 x 150 feet. This has a rock base (only 3 years old) with a great sand surface, laser crowned, with waterers and drainage around it. There is even a cross country practice course at the bottom of the parcel. The property benefits from a 30 horse boarding permit so you might appreciate the extra income that could generate.
There is plenty of parking for trailers and a circular drive to enable you to turn easily. Good rock roads give separate access to the home, the barn and arena. Nice little orchard of fruit trees, fenced garden area and good shed/ storage space makes this a great country farm!
