Five Star Ranch

Ukiah, California

$2,895,000 | 156.90 ± Acres | Mendocino County

Winding through the manicured forest until emerging to an uninterrupted and awe-inspiring vista out over the entire Ukiah Valley is one’s first impression coming into the 156.9 acres of Five Star Ranch. Upon passing through the entrance gates, the road shepherds you through an olive grove that breaks out to reveal what is the Ranch’s masterpiece - a 5,500 sq ft 3 bedroom, 5 bath Frank Loyd Wright-inspired house custom designed and built by Thomas Hise in 2007.  Exuding refined modernity, entering the house is like entering a cathedral with towering ceilings rising in clean lines and sunlight raining down on you through the well-positioned skylights. Accompanying this is the sound of flowing water circulating inside and outside and creating a Koi pond underneath the floating staircase that leads you to the Great Room. With radiant floors throughout and an architectural design incorporating passive solar, the house remains a consistent and comforting temperature.  A house of this magnitude is built for entertaining, and the Chef’s Kitchen does not disappoint. With granite counters, two Viking stoves, a Viking Range with an indoor grill and flat top, Sub- Zero Fridge, stainless steel prep counters, a custom-designed pantry, an appliance garage, and a full bar with a wine fridge, there is not much wanting. Out of the Great Room, with its large fireplaces and endless views across the horizon, one opens the french doors to the entertainment patio and 45-foot Infinity Pool and Jacuzzi. If tranquility and shade are desired, then the grapevine pergola at the back courtyard is the place to be. The Master en suite has his and her closets, french doors to separate balconies, luxurious bathroom with an Italian marble bath.

The second master en suite is equally impressive. There is a third bedroom and currently used as an office, also with expansive views. There are 2 separate - two-car garages wherein one of the garages has been converted into a gym. Water is sourced from a 24GPM well, and there is a sophisticated filtration system in place as well as over 2000 gravity-fed gallon water storage. To ensure further self-sufficiency, there is a 24 KW generator for the whole house's electrical backup and a 12KW solar array to feed back into the grid. The exterior house design and the surrounding landscaping were placed in contemplation of creating a defensive space. The Ranch is entirely deer-fenced, though, with some corridors currently left open to allow the free movement of wildlife. There are additional high fences protecting the gardens and orchards. The herb gardens, orchards, and olive groves are protected by a high fence. Up until recently, the Ranch had 20 acres planted to vineyards. The infrastructure is in place to replant, including two ponds with more than 20-acre feet of water storage and pumps for irrigation and fire protection from one end of the property to another. The Ranch has historically run cattle, llamas, sheep, and corrals and selective fencing are in place to continue this operation or to convert the same to the horse pasture. Wildlife abounds, including Blacktail deer, wild turkey, quail, grouse, and other species of majestic birds, including peregrine falcons and bald eagles, etc.  There are numerous roads and trails throughout the property that meander in and out of oak and fir forests. On the northeast side of the property and hidden in its own meadow is the outdoor BBQ and entertainment pavilion with a bathroom and shower. It is just one of the many places to enjoy around this one-of-a-kind, exquisite property to round out what is truly Five Star experience.
