Property description

Makiivka Estate Farm Reserve is a hidden treasure of natural beauty named after one desperate HIV AIDS orphanage in the Ukraine. We stress the concept of giving back as we donate a portion of all profits to the children of Ukraine and the children of Lake County. Here, in a quiet country setting of natural beauty, you can choose to be at peace with nature, walk our farm, pick weeds or simply enjoy the view. We offer a garden oasis in a quiet country setting minutes from the best wineries in Northern California. Take part in the "New Lake County Wine Country" adventure. Our secluded Vineyard Suites provide spectacular views for the photographer overlooking Mayacamus Mountains and Highland Springs Vineyards. A setting for the serious student, a romantic setting for a surprise getaway engagement, hiking and exercise for the sport enthusiast, water sport for those adventurous, and diverse wine tasting! Our Wedding Officiant will be honored to assist with a small Boutique Farm Style Elopement Ceremony. We cater to quiet low key family gatherings rather than loud parties and therefore respect the Williams Act expansive reserve. Biodynamic Farming is seriously encouraged and promoted as we crush our olives and pick our fruits by hand. We have hand picked each weed and replaced it with an expansive lawn of amazing grass. We provide a sanctuary environment for relaxing in an oasis with the availability of facial and massage european style healing sessions. Furthermore, swimming, tennis, yoga, pilates, hiking, golf, horse back riding, water sports, antique shopping, wine tasting and bicycle trails are minutes away! If you have your own plane you can land and walk to our location...!

On 10 flat acres of farm land our property consists of a main house opening onto a pool. There is a lovely old barn which sits on the property line for visual enjoyment. The house consists of four bedrooms, a master bridal suite and one whirlpool tub. Three additional bedrooms share a shower. Each bed has high quality mattress with high thread count Egyptian cotton linens down duvets and fluffy pillows. Open living areas are inviting with a large wood farm table as a centerpiece for gatherings. High speed internet is available as is TV and Movies for your enjoyment. The kitchen is equipped for meals including stove, serving dishes, wine glasses, utensils, microwave, coffee maker and Wusthof chef knives. We have a Chef you can book on advanced notice who is exceptional as well as a Catering Service in town. The home has central heating and air conditioning as well as washer and dryer. Outdoors and indoors blend together as views of the vineyards are present in every direction. A Webber barbeque is available for outdoor cooking. Enjoy our wrap around deck for an amazing view...a glass of wine in hand with friends or family as the sun goes down.
Our gardens offer a large lawn for throwing a ball, or a game of croquet, surrounded by palette of wine country grasses, olive trees, numerous varietals of table grapes. Fruit trees include plums, apples, figs, pears, nectarines, pomegranates and cherries. A herb, lettuce and tomato garden are yours to enjoy. Our new lap pool is a beautiful addition to the open landscape. Chaise lounges and umbrellas set the scene for a perfect day.
Highland Springs Vineyard area of Lake County boasts premium wine growing, located two and one half hours north of the Golden Gate Bridge/San Francisco renowned for its idyllic undisturbed natural beauty.

Conditions: No loud parties allowed please to respect the restrictions of the Williamson Act Reserve.
