Simply stunning retreat ! Tucked under the shadow of Mt. Madonna in the Santa Cruz mountains, off the historic stagecoach trail on Redwood Retreat Road, is the bucolic 932 acre Bates Ranch. Noted for its 1930’s William Wurster designed 4,100-sq.ft. four bedroom, four and a half bath main house and re-built three bedroom, three bath guest house over-looking part of the 22 acre-vineyard, located just 45 minutes south of Palo Alto. A weekend retreat, a summer place, or a full-time ranch, the abundant fresh water springs ensure a verdant landscape in perpetuity. In addition, renowned landscape architect Tommy Church designed the grounds. A natural spring-fed lake offers a haven for water fowl and opportunities for canoeing and fishing. Little Arthur Creek, a watershed from the Santa Cruz mountains, flows at the edge of the property creating a magical and timeless feel. Private trails for hiking, horseback riding or mountain biking beckons the outdoor enthusiast as well as the over-size pool and tennis court adjacent to the main house. Yet, the peace, privacy, and tranquility afford the lucky homeowner a place for renewal and relaxation; a gift in our fast-paced world today. The bonus for an oenophile or casual lover of the grape are the 22 acres of Cabernet, Cabernet Franc, and Grenache. Bottled off-site since 1978, the award-winning Cabernets have graced the tables of many Californians for years. The Ranch is in the Williamson Act and currently supports a 30+ pair cattle operation. Additional buildings includes two hay barns, corrals, stables, and a caretaker’s home plus a three bedroom/two bath income property along Redwood Retreat Road. Lots of opportunity to expand the vineyard, plant olive trees, and expand the equestrian facilities and create events.
