Rauch Ranch

Mariposa, California

$3,650,000 | 1,245 +/- Acres | Mariposa County

Take advantage of the rare and incredible opportunity to own this exceptionally versatile 1245+ acre ranch in historic Mariposa County, just about 45 minutes from Yosemite National Park.  The ranch consists of very usable rangeland,  currently with a 150 cow seasonal lease.  The ranch is perimeter and cross-fenced with four traps, two ponds, four wells, and multiple springs, providing plenty of water for domestic, irrigation, and livestock.  For the cattleman,  there is a good working set of corrals, sweep, squeeze chute, calf table, and livestock scales.   For the equestrian, there is a large wooden 7 stall barn that can store 75 tons of hay.  There is a large riding arena with views of the nearby hills, a 60 foot round-pen, 4 paddocks, and a tack room right next to the wash rack.  There is an 11 mile riding loop on the property, and the owners have a use permit to run a dude string as well.

There are 10 acres planted in mature wine grapes including varietals such as cabernet sauvignon, zinfandel, viognier, petite Sirah, and syrah to name a few.  The hot summer afternoons and cool evening breezes make for an excellent growing climate here.  In the basement of the main ranch house, there is a 1200 case winery and tasting room for on-site guests.

For the recreational enthusiast, there is also plenty to do at this ranch.  You can ride ATVs and quads virtually all over the entire 1245 acre ranch.   The ponds have bass and bluegill, and the ranch used to have a lease with an outfitter who guided hunts on the property.  Today there are wild pigs, wild turkey, dove and quail, an occasional deer and bear, plus many other smaller game animals like fox, coyote, and bobcat.

The improvements include three dwelling structures - the main 3 bedroom / 2 bathroom ranch house, a 12oo square foot 3 bedroom guest house that can be rented out as a B&B, and a 3 bedroom / 3 bathroom home they call Mrs. Rauch's house.  There is a detached 4 car garage, and there is a 1500 square foot metal shop building with a mezzanine level as well.   The owners also just finished installing an owned solar system, which means utility bills for the whole operation run about $100 per year!

Overall the ranch consists of 8 parcels, many of which are along Ben Hur Road, where PGE utility lines also parallel each of these parcels, opening the possibility of selling off some of the smaller pieces - there are many ways this property can go given its incredible versatility.
