Located on a country road in the heart of Jack London Wine Country, is the private 100+/- acre ranch and beloved homestead of comedy legend, Tom Smothers. The approach to the home is through a gated entry and paved drive with views wending past natural rock walls, rows of mature vines, a pond and open fields. Purchased over 40 years ago, Smothers and his family have created a bespoke estate compound with hilltop residence, barns, ponds and outbuildings surrounded by a flourishing Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard, meadows, oaks and expansive views. A large pool area, covered verandas and patios, garden areas and putting green provide endless opportunities for relaxation, recreation and entertaining. Olives can be harvested from your own orchard and, for the equestrian, horses can easily be accommodated.
Anchoring the estate is the 23+/- acre organically-farmed Smothers-Remick Ridge vineyard, located in the Sonoma Mountain AVA. It is named for his maternal grandfather and the pride and joy of Smothers himself. The attention to detail and challenging work required to achieve organic status is a testament to Tom’s commitment to quality and the environment. The grapes are professionally managed and sold exclusively to a renowned winery.
Gorgeous lawns, brick patios and mature olive trees surround the unique, custom-crafted residence with stone walls, metal roof and large windows to embrace the views. A large great room with concrete brick and wood floors, reclaimed beam adorned ceilings and floor-to-ceiling stone Rumford fireplace adjoins the dining area, island kitchen and breakfast room. Multiple sets of glass doors provide access to delightful covered brick patios and the pool. A well-appointed master suite with two full baths and the guest wing on this floor are separated by a den with built-ins and picture windows. The lower level is comprised of a large playroom and spacious walk-in wine cellar. Additionally, there is a detached studio and two barns with unique work/live spaces.
Infrastructure includes a paved driveway, custom gate, fencing, a strong well with water storage and two ponds provide vineyard irrigation.
As a full-time residence or second home destination, this is a unique opportunity to own a legacy estate and live the wine country dream. Located close to historic towns, state and regional parks, dining and restaurants. About an hour north of the Golden Gate Bridge, convenient to Charles M. Schulz Sonoma County Airport.
