Rare opportunity. This stunning 100± acre certified organic farmed ranch in bucolic Glen Ellen captures arguably the greatest views in all of Sonoma Valley. Possibly the only property in Sonoma Valley to capture 360 degree views of the Mayacamas and Sonoma Mountain ranges, dramatic Hood Mt., Bennett Valley, vineyard vistas, the San Francisco Bay and all three of Sonoma Valley’s State Parks. Ancient olive trees and stunning oaks lead you to the dramatic entrance overlooking the property’s 23± acre Certified Organic Farm (COF) Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards.

The beloved homestead of comedy legend, Tom Smothers, the ranch includes a custom-crafted residence wrapped by covered verandas, lawn area and solar-heated pool, a putting green, studio, barn with live/work spaces and 4-car garage. The distinctive residence was constructed with stone walls, metal roof, large windows to capture the views and multiple sets of glass doors accessing the grounds. A large great room with concrete brick and wood floors, reclaimed beam adorned ceilings and floor-to-ceiling stone Rumford fireplace adjoins the open dining area, island kitchen and breakfast room. Also on this floor are master suite wing with sitting room and stone fireplace, two full baths, the guest wing and den with built-ins. The lower level is comprised of a large playroom and spacious walk-in wine cellar.

Endless opportunities await with multiple parcels, two ponds, two barns, studio, a custom 5,000± sq. ft. home with large wine cellar and pool with jaw dropping views. Just 5± minutes to the towns of Glen Ellen and Kenwood, 15± minutes to the Sonoma Plaza and within 1 hour of San Francisco and all of the Sonoma County Wine Country amenities. As the saying goes: location, location, location!
