About 5050 Bennett Valley Road

This historic Bennett Valley ranch was originally settled and developed in the late 1800s, making it one of the original ranches to be established in the area. It offers over 52± acres with Diversified Agriculture zoning and 20 acre minimum parcel size limits that could potentially allow for the parcel to be subdivided into two parcels, or to build another main home even without splitting the parcel.

It currently offers a single level craftsman main house with 3 bedrooms and 1 full bath, as well as a second single-level home with 2 bedrooms and 1 full bath. It has an old-world cattle barn with an exceptionally large hay loft that would be perfect for barn parties, a traditional ranch, or farming use. There are several outbuildings on the property. It has a tractor barn, a previous dairy building, and multiple storage buildings. A tributary of Matanzas Creek runs through the property with two of the storage buildings built to span over the top of the creek with water running under them. Touring through this property is a walk through time. Everywhere you go you will see old-school artisanship and charm. With a little work, this could be the most charming, authentic historic ranch in Bennett Valley—something that is rare and highly sought after now.

The gated entry has a long straight approach lined with majestic walnut trees leading directly to the main house. Aside from the walnut orchard, there are a variety of fruit trees, as well as ancient oaks, madrones, and more. Even the trees exude the age of the property and its grounds.

This property’s acreage consists of mostly gently sloped or level, usable land. It is fenced and cross-fenced, previously used for cattle grazing. The parcel extends from Bennett Valley Road frontage all the way back to the Bennett Valley Reservoir owned by the County of Sonoma. Beyond the reservoir is the Jackson Family Ranch which is 1,500± acres, and then Taylor Mountain Regional Park with its miles of hiking and riding trails.

This is truly a special place and a one-of-a-kind historic ranch that the likes of which simply don’t exist anymore.
