Created by subdividing the former Ranchos Los Guillicos, Los Alamos Ranch is an extraordinarily scarce offering of 214 +/- unspoiled acres. Perfectly situated in the Sonoma Valley, the Ranch is located precisely half way between Kenwood to the East and Santa Rosa to the West. Originally an 1837 Mexican Land Grant, this pristine legacy estate was the pioneer homestead owned by renowned Scotsman, William Hood, for whom nearby Hood Mountain is named. The property consists of two APNs that are comprised of 5 separate ACCs. The smaller of the APNs (#032) measures 66.55 +/- acres which are situated within Santa Rosa's "Sphere of Influence". This determination establishes the potential for annexation when the city's General Plan is updated in the year 2020. The 'highest and best' suitability for this piece of the Los Alamos Ranch may be as a Sonoma Valley AVA estate winery and event center (with vineyard development of approximately 35 acres of vines). Yet another unique highlight of this particular sector is its 15 +/- acre feet pond which is suitable for purposes of irrigation or recreation. The larger of the two APNs (#016) spans 147.61 +/- acres and contains within, 4 ACCs that range in size from 7 acres to 119 acres. So, there are potentially four building sites (subject to the policies and standards of the Permit Resource Management Department of Sonoma County). The apparent 'highest and best use' is for rural estate property building locations, each including ancillary land. The largest of the ACCs, designated number 4, has a vintage farmhouse originally built in 1930 with more recent expansion and updating. It measures 1210 +/- sq ft with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. In addition, there is a picturesque red barn, an area icon that is visible from Los Alamos Road, and functions as agricultural storage. Regardless of how an end-user opts to utilize, this incredible jewel is an incredible slice of pristine Paradise.
