This historic 564-acre cattle ranch equidistant from San Francisco and Silicon Valley boasts a Ralph Lauren vibe and a short scenic drive to the coast.
On the California Coast, in the small town of San Gregorio, sits picturesque Island Farm Ranch just waiting for new owners to bring their Ralph Lauren-inspired dreams to life.
Here, in pastoral privacy equidistant from San Francisco and Silicon Valley, you’ll find 564 acres of coastal foothills, redwood forests, and running creeks. You’ll also find a historic cabin set on a pond, complete with canoes and fishing poles. Built during Prohibition, the two-bedroom home reveals two secret bars where luminaries like Gregory Peck once relaxed with a drink.
The property’s six homes — two needing work — include the three-bedroom “Cooks Cabin” and five-bedroom “Rose’s Cottage.” There’s also housing for farmworkers and a resident caretaker who was raised on the property and continues to maintain the land and animals.
A working barn, plenty of land for cattle grazing (allowing the property to remain in the Williamson Act for tax purposes), storage tanks throughout the property with a 35,000-gallon total capacity, a stock pond, and all-important riparian water rights come with the sale.
Among its expansive acreage, Island Farm boasts more than 80 acres of redwood trees and a ticket booth once used by the Southern Pacific Railroad Company.
