Just ~2.5 hours from the Bay Area, Chestnut Ridge Ranch is located in the heart of Anderson Valley, a few miles west of the charming town of Boonville. The property encompasses 158 +/- acres. The home and orchards are located on a ridge top with stunning views of Anderson Valley, and the rest of the property is a mix of conifers, hardwoods, and oaks with Parkinson Gulch draining down the eastern side.
About 25 acres are deer-fenced around the home and contain an income-producing Colassals Hybrid chestnut orchard of about 7 acres, a productive family fruit/nut orchard, a spring-fed pond, and a small family vineyard. The home itself is 2 bedrooms 2 baths, unconventionally laid out but solidly constructed and cozy. Several alternative homesites exist throughout the ranch should the new owner wish to repurpose the current home as a guesthouse or caretakers quarters. All take advantage of the dual benefits of full sun exposure and the cooling currents of coastal air in this ideal location.
The Anderson Valley area was historically a logging center; several specialty lumber mills still exist, but this region is now known for its many small vineyards and craft breweries. Boonville's annual rodeo is not to be missed; it is also an exceptionally beautiful area with great hiking and hunting opportunities.
This property would make a great organic farm, small inn, weekend getaway, or full-time haven. It is private and accessible with useful improvements, mature landscaping, grand views, and live water. Take a look while it lasts!
