Welcome to one of the most extraordinary properties on the San Francisco Peninsula. Completed in the early 1990s on almost 18 acres, Ridgecrest Ranch is a place for endless adventure, grand entertaining, or simply enjoying the absolute serenity of the natural surroundings. The property has endless potential and has been used to raise Peruvian Paso horses, to showcase a car aficionado’s collection, and to host philanthropic and social events easily accommodating up to 200 guests – all the while, serving as a comfortable venue for everyday living.

The main residence spans a total of 5 floors – from the 10+ car garage to a viewing room at the top of one of the signature turrets. The personal quarters, including multiple apartments, are designed for the utmost in privacy, and perfectly suited to today’s remote office needs as well as for multi-generational families and staff. The barn is a matching masterpiece with both buildings hand-crafted by local and international artisans with individual details taking up to a year to complete. Tying it all together are magnificent grounds complete with golf practice area, RC car track, a resort-inspired pool and spa, and direct access to miles and miles of hiking and equestrian trails in bordering Wunderlich Park.
