This is a recently built Victorian mansion on a 1,700 acre ranch in Mendocino County, California. Mendocino County is in the northern part of the state. The county is noted for its distinctive Pacific Ocean coastline, Redwood forests, wine production, microbrews, and liberal views about the use of cannabis and support for its legalization. It is estimated that roughly one-third of the economy is based on the cultivation of marijuana. You will have plenty of room to explore additional income opportunities other than ranching I’m sure with this beautiful piece of property.
From the listing: “The East Ranch features a reproduction Victorian home set on approximately 1734 acres with views overlooking Redwood Valley and frontage on the Russian River. The property is currently classified as a conservation ranch with an existing cattle operation, and is covered under the Williamson Act.
The property features 7 metered and permitted springs, 5 ponds and two stock tanks which generate and store enough water to provide irrigation and domestic water, even in drought years. An extensive water storage and management system captures the flow out of the springs and directs it into a series of storage tanks that can hold or release water as needed. There are separate systems for domestic water and irrigation, and the system is gravity powered. There are two agricultural hookups for the Redwood Valley water district as well.
The house is sited approximately 1/2 mile off of East Road with a gated entrance. Next to the house is a pond that is used for swimming and irrigation. Another pond, the 18 acre foot Wildlife Pond, is approximately 1/4 mile from the house and is a wildlife sanctuary.
