Mt. Hamilton, CA
It is rare to find such a large ranch (1544 +/- acres) close to the Bay Area for sale. The ranch was originally part of a 10,000 acre ranch that was bought by a Swiss dairyman sight unseen in 1897. When Paul Gerber took the stage coach to the property, he decided to get into the beef cattle industry and it has been inthe same family for the last 117 years. The 1544 +/- acre property is located inSanta Clara County just 30 miles from Livermore, CA and 40 miles from San Jose, CA.
The beautiful San Antonio Valley makes up part of the ranch and is known for its gorgeous spring wildflowers. The ranch is part of the PLM program and usually gets trespass rights for one Bull Tule Elk tag and one cow Tule Elk tag. In addition, the owners have done extensive habitat improvement with year round water, quail guzzlers and brush removal.
The contiguous property consists of six parcels. It is zoned agriculture and is in the Williamson Act.
The property sits at the 2100 ft elevation with a high of 2452 ft and is located in the California Diablo Range in Central California. The property is characterized by a lush 40 acre meadow, rolling foothills, rugged canyons, oak woodlands, springs, pond and seasonal streams. Henry Coe State Park is nearby as well as the new San Antonio Valley – South Ranch that was protected by the RMEF and the Nature Conservancy. The ranch was bought to provide year round habitat for tule elk and is home to black-tailed deer, valley quail, golden eagles and mountain lions.
