Dragon Claw Ranch Retreat

Paso Robles, CA

$1,999,999 | 92 +/- Acres | San Luis Obispo County

Ideally situated 25 minutes west of Paso Robles, CA, is the 91+/- acre, private, family compound known as Dragon Claw Ranch/Retreat.  Named for the shape of the nearby spit of Lake Nacimiento, and family-owned for the last twenty years, this property is vast and serene, with an altitude differential of over 700 feet for you to stroll endlessly and enjoy all day. 

At the end of your very own private road and through the entrance gates, the ranch offers two residences: an adobe-inspired California cabin, and a modern main home.  There is also a hand-crafted, peaceful, well-designed studio building hidden beneath the oaks on the ranch that would make a perfect art, music, or yoga studio, a creative workshop, or even a writer’s dream space.

Perched atop two hills, both residences offer incredible 180 degree views to the south, with nothing but the oak-studded, California mountain landscape in sight.

The ranch is a unique get-away, just a three-hour drive from either greater Los Angeles or the San Francisco Bay Area.  Surrounded by the world-famous Paso Robles wine country, and at the end of the California Wine Trail there are over 300 wineries with numerous 5-star vineyards and tasting rooms just minutes away. The recreational opportunities are endless here: hiking, riding, hunting, swimming, fishing, boating, and just relaxing.
