Lots of opportunities on this historic, beautiful property located just two hours from the San Francisco Bay Area. For the past ~50 years, the JKL Ranchhas been operated as a productivecattle ranch. High quality feed, gentle terrain and three large reservoirs make the property well suited for livestock. The ranch also contains ~100+ acres of Class 2 and 3 soils, making it perfectly suited for a vineyard, orchard, or other agricultural operation.Part of the larger North Coast AVA, the ranchsits within Clear Lake AVA, known primarily for Cabernet Sauvignon but also for Chardonnay, Muscat, Sauvignon Blanc, and Zinfandel. Ancient river bars left behind well-drained, rich soil, and the surrounding Mayacamas Range exerts a cooling influence which bring nighttime summer temperatures down. The rolling hills and established dirt roads throughout the property invite the establishment of an equestrian estate. It's not difficult to imagine horses grazing in the ~150 acre main meadow or pausing to drink from oneof the ponds. The ranch is rich in recreational opportunities - hunting for deer, boar, turkey, fishing in the reservoirs + close proximity to Clear Lake, California's largest inland body of water. Gorgeous views out to Mt. Konocti, Cobb Mountain, etc. Very pretty property with numerous potential homesites.
