Project Description

Sonoma 91± Acre Ranch

17700 Carriger Rd., Sonoma CA 95476

$ 5,600,000

Set on a picturesque country lane, this 91+/- acre ranch presents a unique opportunity to own a special piece of Sonoma wine country. Known as ‘Minniglen’, it is a first-time offering since deeded to the current family in 1898. Two homes enjoy scenic outlooks over verdant meadows and easterly vistas to the bay and majestic Mt. Diablo. There are multiple outbuildings, a pool, charming 90+ year old barn and access to private woods. Rich in potential, the land is suitable for agriculture, vineyard or equestrian pursuits; zoned to divide into estate view parcels. One of the area’s best aquifers and a strong well provide ample water for the property.

The 3,014+/- sq. ft. main residence features the view and an excellent floor plan with all rooms on one floor. Built in 1991 with 3 bedrooms, a family room, a den/office, 2.5 baths, vaulted exposed wood ceilings, hardwood floors, open kitchen and banks of windows to capture abundant light. View master wing is separate from the guest wing. The living space expands to a generous deck for outdoor living and entertaining. Bonus features include dual zone heating and cooling, laundry room with shower and an oversized attached 2-car garage with storage.

The second residence also features a breathtaking view. A great floor plan with marble entry hall is a triple-wide manufactured home with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, dining room, living room and mud room with laundry. It has a large deck, newer roof, on-demand hot water heater and it’s own septic system. Great space for rental income, caretaker or guests.

Premier location adjacent to Sonoma Golf Course, minutes to downtown Sonoma and about 1+/- hour to San Francisco.
