The location offers close proximity to airports, both private and international, Bay Area Rapid Transit, and numerous golf courses. The thriving Tri-Valley area abounds with restaurants and shopping. Numerous tourist spots are nearby: San Francisco, AT&T Ballpark, the wineries of Napa/Sonoma/Livermore, Great America, Marine World/Africa USA, and Water World. Yosemite National Park, Monterey, Carmel, Santa Cruz, and ocean beaches are close by.

This 4200 square foot mountain home retreat has a gourmet kitchen; the bathrooms are tumbled marble. The house features extensive use of redwood, hardwood flooring, marble, stone, and brick; all the upgrades.

This home is one of two on the private estate - the other can be viewed at VRBO #165938.

Why Cheryl Green chose Livermore

The Gated Country Estate is a very unique opportunity for you lodging and event needs that cannot be matched in the San Francisco Bay area. We have the ability to host your event or wedding while at the same time lodge your family on the same estate in a truly spectacular setting with expansive acreage. You will feel like you have the whole estate to yourselves while other properties have close neighbors or set your time on the property to just a portion of the day for events. Whether your planning your special family reunion, wedding day, corporate event or would like the ultimate vacation setting for your own family this setting must be seen to be believed. We are surrounded by over 4700+ acres of conservancy land at a higher elevation that looks down across the east bay area in all it's glory. Daytime views are fantastic and the evening views will even rival those with the city lights below while your sitting in our Jacuzzi after a long day.

Panoramic Scenic views

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a get-together with friends. The plan was to visit places close by, but once we reached the house, we were so impressed with the scenic views, that we preferred to just spend time at the ranch. We enjoyed the sun rises and sunsets. We also spotted two deer on the hills. Appreciate Cheryl for accommodating our last-minute requests.

We booked the property for our family Christmas celebration. It was amazing. Jason is a phenomenal property manager and took such good care of us. My mom actually cried tears of joy when she first arrived and toured the property. We had everything we needed and were so comfortable. The beautiful views and scenery are outstanding and the house itself is extraordinarily comfortable. I would not hesitate to book for any reason. Communication with Cheryl was prompt and easy.

Very Impressive Location!

It was just what we were looking for, and needed. A quiet, away from the world location, with the feel and the comforts of home.

Most enjoyable!
