The Carpenter Ranch offers a stunning custom built 5100 square foot brick home on a hilltop vista affording views of the ranch, Lake Comanche Reservoir, the night lights of Ione and Martel, and as far as the Sierra Nevada Mountains. This is a true gentleman s estate, and an excellent environment to raise a family. The ranch consists of 171 acres of gently rolling rangeland, studded with magnificent oak trees. There are 3 acres planted with safflower. The horse facilities include a 4 stall barn, with generous turnouts, a 150 x 250 pipe-fenced sand riding arena, and two large fenced pastures. There is a 3000 square foot, 3 bay shop with work area and storage. The entire property has been meticulously maintained in immaculate condition.
The home exemplifies high end construction and design, with 10 foot ceilings, large crown molding, walnut hardwood flooring, custom cherry wood kitchen cabinets, granite countertops, 6 burner gas cook top, double oven with warming oven, and beautiful wood paneled refrigerator. The entry opens to a two story foyer inviting you into the formal living room with two story windows and marble fireplace, all commanding a majestic view of the back yard and surrounding land. The master suit, located on the first floor, provides access to the outside, and includes a divine travertine tiled bathroom, and large walk-in closet. The bedrooms upstairs each have their own walk-in closets and bathrooms, and there is a separate second story laundry room.
The horse amenities are a delight for any equestrian enthusiast. The 4 stall barn includes a cement slab, a tack room, wash rack, and feed room. The turnouts are built on pervious concrete over an engineered french-drain system, so your horses will not be mired in standing water. The 150 x 250 sand riding arena is pipe-fenced, and includes a roping chute, and there are large fenced pastures on either side of the arena.
The topography of the land is gently sloping, starting at 150 feet of elevation and rising up to 350 feet of elevation at the top of the hill. The property is perimeter fenced, and the owner runs 75 yearlings from October through May. Three acres are planted with safflower. There is a shared pond that has water year round. The property is in the Williamson Act, so property taxes are kept at a minimum.
The ranch is conveniently located between Lodi and Jackson, California. With easy access to both highway 99 and 88, getting to the Bay Area, Sacramento, or the Sierras is a short drive away. The Lake Comanche Reservoir is within 10 minutes, and is a haven for hiking, biking, horseback riding, fishing and water skiing.
