Located on a country road in the heart of Jack London Wine Country, is the private 100+/- acre ranch and beloved homestead of comedy legend, Tom Smothers. Gated entry and paved drive with views wending past natural rock walls, rows of vines and open fields. Purchased over 40 years ago, Smothers and his family have created a bespoke estate compound w/hilltop residence, barns, ponds and outbuildings surrounded by a flourishing Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard, meadows, oaks and views. Large pool area, covered verandas and patios, garden areas and a putting green provide endless opportunities for relaxation and entertaining. Olives can be harvested from your own orchard and, for the equestrian, horses can easily be accommodated.
Anchoring the estate is the 23+/- acre organically-farmed Smothers-Remick Ridge vineyard, located in the Sonoma Mountain AVA. The grapes are professionally managed and sold exclusively to a renowned winery.
Gorgeous lawns, brick patios and mature olive trees surround the custom-crafted residence with stone walls, metal roof and large windows to embrace the views. A large great room with concrete brick and wood floors, reclaimed beam adorned ceilings and floor-to-ceiling stone Rumford fireplace adjoins the dining area, island kitchen and breakfast room. Sets of glass doors provide access to grounds and the pool. Well-appointed master suite with two full baths and the guest wing on this floor are separated by a den with built-ins and picture windows. The lower level is comprised of a large playroom and spacious walk-in wine cellar. Additionally, there is a detached studio and two barns with unique work/live spaces.
Infrastructure includes a paved driveway, custom gate, fencing, a strong well with water storage and two ponds for vineyard irrigation.
As a full-time residence or second home, this is a unique opportunity to own a legacy estate and live the wine country dream. Located close to historic towns, parks, dining and more. About an hour north of the Golden Gate Bridge, convenient to Charles M. Schulz Sonoma County Airport.
