About the Property

Farmhouse, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8) + Glam Camping

Longview Ranch is a modern home set atop 200 acres of private land. Originally an industrial workshop, Longview is now a home of modern luxury juxtaposed against dramatic wilderness.

As one of the private ranches on Orr Springs Road, Longview is a perfect hot springs escape, wine country stopover, family vacation, artist gathering or civilized rambling holiday.

While Longview's private grounds provide endless opportunities for adventure, the ranch is just a mile from Orr Hot Springs Resort, where visitors can partake in the resort's day services. A few miles away is Montgomery Woods, a pristine redwood grove. Day trips include Mendocino Village, Anderson Valley's wine country and Hopland.

FOODIES:
Longview's gourmet kitchen, two 10 person tables (one indoor, one outdoor) and setting make it well-suited for intimate gatherings around food, both in preparation and eating. An extensive collection of Heath dinnerware - Sausalito's celebrated mid-century ceramics - ensures feasting in modern style. A picnic lunch on one of the property's scenic outlooks is also highly recommended. Ukiah's Food Coop and local culture make fresh fixings easily accessible.


FAMILIES:
Longview is owned by a family with young children, and provides 2 portable cribs, toys and creative endeavors for children of all ages. There is a fort-like bedroom for children to pile into, and each Queen bedroom is large enough to share with children. A 1000 square feet of open studio space is great for messy projects and after dark roller derbies. A huge porch and fenced acre of yard make it easy for parents to let kids run freely. There is also a hilltop fairy ring for picnics, tea parties and tree climbs with views to boot. Longview is baby proofed for electrics, cooking, windows and staircase. Basic First Aid is provided, and Ukiah's hospital can be reached within 20 minutes.

DESIGNERS & ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE:
As a commitment to the design, painting and sculpture community in Mendocino, we offer two one-week residencies each year to qualified applicants. Interested parties should send portfolio samples and a letter of intent for use of the ranch during residency.

Keywords: Mendocino, Ranchland, Modern Design, Dramatic Views, Near Orr Hot Springs Resort & Montgomery Redwoods Park. Day trips to Anderson Valley, Mendocino Village and Hopland. Great for family gatherings, rambling, hiking, biking, wine country tours or weekend escapes. Proposals for larger gatherings considered on an individual basis.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I'm an industrial designer and Montessori teacher. I've worked the full range of design assignments (e.g. Lifefactory's glass drinking bottle, Schwab's on-line trading platform and social innovation projects for PopTech). I'm currently extremely interested in the design principles Maria Montessori applied towards childhood development, and am honored to work in the classrooms at Marin Montessori each school year; summers are filled with design consulting in children's play spaces. My work at Longview is a continuous effort in creating modern welcome to small gatherings in a natural setting. My husband is a floppy-haired Englishman with no apparent end to his talents. We met in London, had babies in Brooklyn and now work in the Bay Area. We have a shared passion for wilderness, modern design.

Why the Owner Chose Ukiah, CA, USA:
Longview is a labor of love and opportunity for re-balancing our frenetic urban lives. The property provides a juxtaposition between nature and modern dwelling, which we love, and is instrumental in restoring all the physical and emotional and tanks that run dry in our frenetic urban lifestyle. It's also a perfect place for us to create adventure while catching-up with our friends and family. We also love witnessing the positive impact that the expansive, deeply remote, space has on adults and children especially.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
We love to escape the Bay Area to our projects at Longview on weekends. The ranch gives us a chance to practice the basic skills of modern farming; the nicest ways to experience Longview is to work on the land. We garden, cut wood, harvest olives or apples or prepare an campfire for an evening of stargazing.
