Comptche Spring Ranch, California
Property Types: Vacant Land, Ranches, Timber Land
Activities & Amenities
The historic Comptche Spring Ranch is nestled in a mountain meadow above the coastal hamlet Comptche. The Ranch is approached thru a gorgeous redwood and fern strewn driveway that finally emerges out onto Docker Hill's meadow plateau. The Ranch sits on the pinnacle of this outlook surrounded by productive redwood and fir forests, vineyards, aged orchards and lush mountain pastures while simultaneously enjoying grand vistas of the California Coastal Mountain Range and the Pacific. Comptche Spring Ranch is at the end of the road with no easements over the property - once you close the gate behind you, you leave the world behind you to immerse yourself in your own private domain.
In the heart of the Ranch sits two restorable farmhouses, numerous barns & outbuildings that exude the nostalgia of their storied history and almost begs for that restoration to begin. There is an abundance of water from both well and springs. Power is connected though the Ranch has excellent southwestern sun exposure for possible conversion to solar.
The expansive meadow surrounding the Ranch's Headquarters is level to gently rolling and is dotted with a wide variety of heirloom fruit trees that have long since been forgotten. This would make an ideal vineyard site or serve as the basis for a true farm to table operation given its size, exposure, water and the topography of the site.
Besides its agricultural merits, the timber production component plays a significant role in long term economic return. Though recently sustainably thinned, there remains an estimated 1.5 million board foot of redwood and 800,000 board foot of Douglas Fir.
The Comptche Spring Ranch is the iconic California coastal ranch property that enjoys all the bounties which makes California the envy of so many - redwoods, Pacific Ocean influence and views, lush mountain meadows, vineyard potential, temperate year round climate and historic intrigue. It would be hard to imagine a more prime example of the quintessential California homestead than the Comptche Spring Ranch.
