Property description

The perfect setting for a memorable family reunion, get away with friends, birthday and anniversary celebration, corporate retreat or artisan adventure. This private, historical estate encompasses 14 walkable acres in the heart of the Arroyo Seco Highlands looking out over the Arroyo Seco River Canyon. Once the site of an early California health retreat and a stage stop the Estate sets the stage for an unforgetable get away. The entire property has been lovingly restored recently; including gourmet country kitchen, lush ornamental gardens, 55' pool with diving board and large open social areas, with several updated outdoor BBQ areas.

Located on a mesa above the Arroyo Seco River with magnificent views in every direction of the surrounding mountain wilderness. Expansive organic vegetable garden provides fresh food. Guests are welcome to collect fresh eggs daily from our chickens. Kids will love watching the wildlife in the trout pond. The front acreage is devoted to the organic vineyard, producing award winning wines, including Syrah, Zinfandel and Sangiovese. Our wines are available for tasting and sales. Huge ancient oak stands among vast lawns and ornamental gardens will remind you of the history within these golden hills, quintessentially Californian. Teddy Roosevelt once stayed here, we're hoping you will too!
