Fantasy Farm Friday: Fairytale Estate in California

If you’ve got a spare $11.9M laying around, this equestrian complex in Sonoma County might just be for you.

For today’s Fantasy Farm Friday, we’ve got whats dubbed “A true professional equestrian complex set in incomparable natural beauty.” Doesn’t sound too shabby, right? Well, it’s not. Get ready to drool. 🤤

This fairytale estate is set on 30 acres in the serene rolling hills of Petaluma, CA. It’s only minutes to downtown Petaluma and 40 miles north of San Francisco, so this idyllic private sanctuary still lets you get what you need to get without traveling too far out of your way.

The curated grounds include a reservoir, acres of lawn, gardens, and fenced green pastures.

There are miles of riding or hiking trails, as well as a eucalyptus forest giving this labor of love its very own ecosystem (like… wut?). Here’s just a short list of the amenities:

  • Private Gated Estate
  • 4 bd Custom Farmhouse
  • 1+ bd Guest Home
  • Showcase Stables – 15 Horse Stalls
  • International Arena & Entertainment Pavilion
  • 6,000 sq ft Industrial Barn
  • European 80-foot Circular Walker
  • Grass Derby with Natural Obstacles
  • 3 Acres of Fenced Pastures
  • Miles of Riding Trails
  • Reservoir System

The main house has a private gated entrance and pebble driveway that lead to a four-bedroom, two bath completely rebuilt custom farmhouse with steel structural components and a high level of designer detail.

Inside, there are roaring ceilings, an open concept chef’s kitchen and living areas, fireplace, entertaining deck, amazing master bathroom with soaking tub and views. Grand entry gable with stonework and patios that open to the surrounding acres of lawns and derby field.

Across the driveway and roundabout is a two bedroom, one bath architecturally stunning water tower guest house. That’s right. A freaking water tower… that is now a guest house. It has amazing details, a full chef’s kitchen, and a farm to table garden. The picturesque front porch is set in an orchard.

As stunning as the main home and guest house are, now it’s time for the fun stuff. The equestrian amenities.

If you follow the curved lavender and sycamore lined pebble road, you’ll come to the Italian villa-style state of the art professional showcase dream barn. It has incredible stonework, 15 oversized stalls with rubber matting, an automatic water system that tracks consumption, fly spray system, electric fans, tack room, vet stall, grooming stall, two farrier stations, two bathing stations, a huge storage room, one half bath, and a stable manager’s lounge or office above the stables with kitchenette and full bathroom.

So, this in and of itself is enough to make pretty much any equestrian start looking up the street value of their organs, but that doesn’t even include the world-class covered viewing area fit for official competitions, which overlooks an elite international jumping arena with a breathtaking backdrop. Plus, it comes complete with a large stone rotisserie fireplace, so you can host pretty much any event you can imagine.

Other amenities include a European style 80-foot circular walker, a several acre grass derby field with beautiful natural obstacles, two miles of horse trails with footing, and 3 acres of idyllic fenced green pastures.

An added feature of this estate is that the ponds and reservoir system feed the property keeping it green nearly year-round. Plus they supply enough water for the professional equestrian complex. There are two 5,000-gallon fresh water and two 5,000-gallon irrigation water tanks. The top-notch irrigation system with water rocket sprinklers to dispense water over an arena, pastures, lawns, and derby field.
