About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Imagine 50 secluded acres overlooking the northern Alexander Valley with 360 degree views of surrounding mountains, fir forests and native flora and fauna. Behind a locked pipe gate, up a dirt road sits a sweet redwood ranch style house with a large porch, covered area for outdoor dining, bon-fire pit, and many campsite like spots around the property. Originally a sheep ranch, the property has many outbuildings, seasonal creeks, and dirt roads for on-site hiking. While you’re stretching your legs, stop and have a drink from the spring then come back and take a dip in the solar heated pool.

The kitchen is well equipped for anyone who enjoys cooking. Lots of interesting serving platters, linens, wine glasses, large plates and dishes. Perfect for wine country entertaining. Eat in the kitchen or outside at the long farm table in the covered area. The cabin-like living room with knotty pine walls, wood burning fireplace, comfortable furnishings is a great place to relax. There are three bedrooms with two with queen beds, one with king. Each room with it’s own unique style. Two full bathrooms and a laundry/mud room.

The quaint town of Cloverdale is a 10 minute drive away. There are plenty of restaurants, cafes, a movie theater, a farmers market in the summer months, and “Friday Night Live” on the square. Russian River swimming holes within 3 miles. Healdsburg is just 20 minutes south, Hopland 20 minutes north, and Booneville in Anderson Valley is 35 minutes west. There are lots of wineries in the area for tasting and picking up a bottle to enjoy back at the house.

In other words, this is a great place to go if you want to get away from everything and just be.

Note: We advise all wheel or 4 wheel drive to drive up the 1/3 mile dirt road during the rainy season. The house is heated by two wood burning fireplaces during the cold season. We supply wood, kindling, etc. No air conditioning, ceiling fans in each bedroom. No dishwasher.

Cloverdale is home to popular annual events, fine restaurants, B&B inns and hotels, and panoramic views of the wine country.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: I was born and raised in San Luis Obispo and moved to the Bay Area in 1980 where I have been ever since. I live with my husband in West Marin but love to come up to our place outside of Cloverdale to get rejuvenated by nature. I am an interior designer with my own practice, most of my work is in Marin County. My husband and I love to hunt for antiques and other interesting old stuff. We love talking long drives and looking for interesting undiscovered places. We also have a Hacienda on the Coast of Oaxaca where we spend 3 or 4 months a year. You can see it on VRBO.

Why the Owner Chose Cloverdale, CA, USA:
I bought this property 15 years ago after spending time with one of my best friends who has a house on the other side of our valley. We can see each others houses with binoculars. When I was first shown the property by her realtor knew I had to buy it. I feel very lucky to have it and when you see it you will know why.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I grew up going to ranches and there's just something about that kind of setting that really strikes a chord within me. The most special part about this property is the land and surrounding views in all directions. You feel like you are so far away from everything yet downtown is within minutes. Not a day goes by that we don't see some kind of wildlife, deer, pigs, turkeys, hawks and other birds. We even saw a Golden Eagle once. There is also a spring on the property that has amazing drinking water. We love our country pool and of course the house itself is so cozy and cabin like. The front porch is a great place to have a glass of wine in the evening or a cup of coffee in the morning.
