Nestled among old growth Redwoods practically smack dab in the middle of Napa and Sonoma, this property is your ticket out of the city, and into serenity.
Picture yourself walking among old growth Redwoods, coffee in hand, the sound of a creek rustling by, deer crossing your path, sun shining through the towering trees, a warm breeze blowing by, and nobody around…for miles. No taxis, no buses, no trash, no fog, no nothing…just nature. Sounds great, right? Here’s the catch.
It needs work…quite a bit of work. BUT! With a little creativity, vision, and patience, 4520 Redwood Road, Napa could be made into your very own, unique, escape, different from all of your friends’ typical Napa or Sonoma Vineyard homes.
For $275,000 you could practically steal the property, tear down the structure, go minimal by throwing up a pre-fab,
or shipping container made mostly of glass, put your bathroom in the woods (surround it in glass too, nobody will see you), put a “Beware of Dog” sign on your very own bridge (even if you don’t have a dog), and live the life you simply can’t do here in San Francisco. Secluded. Away. Off the grid.
John Muir would be proud of you for escaping the city and living in the woods. Your friends would envy you. AirBNB or VRBO could fund you. And your hipster status would be off the charts!
And when you get tired of it…it’s only an hour’s drive to come back.
Make no mistake, it’s been a crazy busy market for me and a lot of my colleagues. It’s okay…as it has afforded me the luxury to spend Christmas and likely the New Year enjoying all that Tahoe has to offer from the comfort of my new weekend retreat. It’s not all that I wanted, but it will do until I can find something a little more grand:
Happy Holidays! Thanks again for your continued support and all of you wonderful people that have taken the steps to work with me. See you in 2013!!
It’s easy to get lost in thought from this description. Especially coming from the urban jungle we call home here in San Francisco.
Located on Clear Ridge in the heart of Big Sur, this stunning redwood and glass, 3,100 sq. ft. private residence is perfect for family getaways and romantic get-togethers. A peaceful retreat home with vaulted ceilings and skylights, overlooking its own 20-acre meadow, valley and ocean view. No visible neighbors but the deer, a seasonal pond, mature redwoods, oaks, sycamore and other native trees. Private walking trail, ancient redwood-lined stream, large octagonal deck with centerpiece fire pit and natural seating…
You can meet me there. Looks like there is room for all of us. ‘Tis the season of giving and sharing after all…
