Sunset Ranch

Copperopolis, California

$2,900,000 | 252 ± Acres | Calaveras County

Welcome to the splendid 252-acre Sunset Ranch, located just outside Copperopolis, CA. This breathtaking property is a mere 2.5-hour drive from the Bay Area, less than 30 minutes to Angels Camp  and Murphys, and a little over an hour to Bear Valley and Dodge Ridge ski areas. Nearby, within a 30 to 45-minute drive, are some of the state’s largest recreational reservoirs, including Comanche, Pardee, New Melones, Hogan Dam, and Lake Tulloch.

As you enter through the main ranch gate, you'll pass by a historic water trough from the late 1800s, a reminder of the days when horses pulling stagecoaches from Stockton needed refreshment on their way to the gold country, and livestock were herded to the mountains for summer grazing.

The Main Residence is a luxurious 4,250 square-foot home featuring four bedrooms and three bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, formal dining and living spaces, a wood paneled office, five fireplaces, and a covered patio with stunning sunset views year-round. The property is aptly named Sunset Ranch, as you can witness the sun setting 23.5 degrees north of the equator in summer and 23.5 degrees south in winter.

Below the main house lies a gardener’s paradise. The deer-fenced garden boasts a garden shed with a large covered potting area, raised planting beds, and an automated irrigation system that also waters the landscaped gardens in front of the home.

Equestrians will find this property a turn-key dream. The ranch includes a four-stall horse barn with hay storage and connecting runs for each stall. The 100' x 200' sand riding arena, surrounded by sturdy pipe-rail fencing, is equipped with large irrigation sprinklers to keep the dust down. Numerous riding trails meander throughout the picturesque 252-acre ranch, including out to the large pond stocked with bass and frequented by waterfowl.

For practical needs, the 36' x 60' metal shop building is equipped with power and water, housing a workshop, supply storage room, tack room, kitchenette, and bathroom. The west side features an overhang for tractor storage, additional hay storage, and a covered area for curing firewood.

Sunset Ranch is engineered for resilience providing comfortable year-round living, featuring two separate 200 Amp electrical services, a powerful 48 KiloWatt generator, a 500-foot deep well producing 25 gallons per minute, and two 5000-gallon water storage tanks. The property also includes a 300-gallon above-grade diesel tank, main and secondary septic systems, and reliable high-speed internet.

This property offers the satisfaction of owning a first-class luxury country estate, complete with peace of mind from its meticulously designed and well-engineered infrastructure. Sunset Ranch awaits its next owner to continue its legacy for generations to come.
