About the property

House & barn: 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-16). Must inquire re: Guest House

This is an unique property nestled in the western hills above Boonville, CA, Anderson Valley. Anderson Valley is known for its beautiful redwoods and delicious white wines and world class Pinot Noir. The property a home and a barn with a loft apartment.

The main house is attached to the pool facilities a short walk away from the barn. This two bedroom, two bath, two story home is recently remodeled and sleeps two couples privately. The loft above the kitchen (housing the tv area) also has two fouton couches that can provide additional sleeping opportunities. The main room of the house is wide open and circular in design with a massive spherical skylight in the roof. The kitchen boasts all new appliances and a completely remodeled design.

On your way to the pool facilities the back yard offers a modest valley view where a large wood-fire (or gas) grill affords great grilling opportunities (we like to use our own oak logs to build grill fires). The pool facilities have a hot tub, sauna, changing rooms for men and women, bathroom, outdoor showers, outside pool bar with fridge, sinks, and ice machine, fire pit, and of course the salt pool. The pool is heated via radiant solar heat and remains warm during the summer and fall months (from mid May to mid October). The pool bar features a flat screen TV with connection to the satellite to watch your favorite team. The arbor is recently planted to table grapes. There are rock walls and a nice little lawn for the kids to play. The entire thing is nestled in among redwoods, olive groves, a 6-acre organic pinot noir vineyard with a frog pond. Fruit trees and gardens are everywhere.

We recently added a 2,000 square foot loft apartment in the barn that offers three bedrooms and three bathrooms and a kitchen with all new appliances. The living area overlooks the vineyard.

The property is 10 minutes to the airport; 12 minutes to Boonville's shops and restaurants; and 25 minutes from all the wineries in the Valley (some wineries are just 15 minutes away). Despite this proximity, we are at the end of the road and you have the feeling that you are in the middle of nowhere.

There is a guest house adjacent to the property that is owned separately but is sometimes available for rent along with the aforementioned property. The guest house is a 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath, 1200 square foot home with breathtaking views of the valley. If interested in the guest house, please ask specifically for availability and additional fees. Adding the guest house can expand the capacity of your party by 4-6.

While it sure feels like you are isolated on the ranch, please be thoughtful of the neighbors. Sound travels extremely well across the vineyard, and there is a county noise ordinance of 10:00 pm. Extremely loud voices or music late into the night might well result in neighbors contacting the Sheriff's department.

About john and palma

I'm an executive at a New York based technology company that develops marketing automation systems for major brands. I live in Alabama (see below). Prior to moving to Alabama, I ran my own consulting business in San Francisco for nearly 15 years; that's how I ended up with this wonderful ranch. My dream was to live on and off the land.

john and palma purchased this estate in 1992

Why john and palma chose Boonville

I've owned this property for nearly 20 years and have spent millions developing it into an unbelievable vineyard/ranch/resort home. My wonderful wife, however, is from the Southern US and prefers to raise our young children in Alabama. Therefore, rather than parting with the ranch, we've decided to rent it out until such time as I can convince her to move back!

What makes this estate unique

Near to all the wineries and Hendy Woods State Park and farm stands and the shops and restaurants in Boonville, but yet feels like you are out in the middle of the forest. Views from guest house are mesmerizing. Pool bar/fire pit area tends to be the central location for parties.

The fire pit is a very popular part of the ranch located near the pool bar which also boasts two very comfy hammocks. If you like cooking with wood, we have an enormous wood fire webber and we stock our own local organic oak wood with which to cook. The property has a pool, hot tub, and a pond, none of which are gated. Please supervise all guests, especially children. We have no lifeguards on duty! At times, you may encounter maintenance staff, although this is rare on weekends.

We had a family reunion for 17 both adults & teenagers. The pool was the center during the day & main house for dinner & evenings. Great kitchen for meal prep. Everything you need. Weather great so we were outdoors most of the time. Would love to rent it again sometime.

The Buckner Mountain Estate divine.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a wonderful weekend in spring with family and friends. Can’t wait to check out the pool in summer. Palma was a great host. The property is massive and she still managed to give us a short, sweet, and very informative walk around before leaving us to zen out.

Top-notch facility is in a beautiful part of Northern California

  • 5 of 5

Ours and three other families have been getting away on memorial day weekend for almost 20 years now and chose this destination because it was one of the only ones that would accommodate all of us. Such a pleasant surprise to find it to be very modern and furnished beautifully with everything we needed to enjoy our long weekend. The pool area is like a resort area; the pictures don’t do it justice. Everyone agreed that we should return someday. Thank you Palma for being so responsive when we needed your help!

Spectacular Property, Spectacular host!

First of all, the property is amazing. Its essentially your own private resort and the pool facilities alone are worth the stay. The property manager Palma went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect. We cant wait to go back!

Lovely property for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This property is so well planned out. A perfect set up for a vacation with extended family. Plenty of room. A beautiful well stocked kitchen, great bedrooms and outside eating area. There is a wonderful pool with bar and dressing rooms, shower and bathroom. Palma, the manager, is so nice and helpful. We will definitely return.
