1435603117VACAVILLE, CA - Todd Renfrew, broker and owner of California Outdoor Properties, represented the both sides of the transaction in the sale of Alder Creek Ocean Ranch for $3,000,000. This 266 acre ranch is located in Mendocino County about 2.4 miles north of the town of Manchester, CA and 8 miles north of Pt. Arena, CA. The scenic drive through the redwoods and wine country takes about three hours from the San Francisco Bay Area. This ranch has it all; ocean frontage, ocean views, your own beach, creek frontage, meadows, abundant rolling grassland for horses or livestock, two homes, barns and outbuildings. A ranch like this rarely comes on the market and this one has been in the same family since the 1950's.


The property has a 2200 sq ft., 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths ranch style main home that was built in the late 1990's. It has a nice open floor plan with a large kitchen that flows into the family room. The cabinets are custom made with Oregon Red Alder with a built in custom buffet and large walk in pantry. The master bedroom has a large walk in closet lined with redwood shelves and the ocean views are abundant. The caretaker ranch house was built in the early 1900's and is currently rented out. It is 3 bedrooms with one bath and two stories.

This property is a recreational playground. You can walk to the ocean on your own beach, go surf fishing, surfing or hike for miles on Manchester State Beach. Alder Creek flows through the property and has steel head in the winter months when the creek flows into the ocean, makes for some great fly fishing on your own creek. Enjoy relaxing horseback riding in your pastures, along ocean bluffs, and down to the beach. A great attribute of the ranch is that you can ride your horses on the beach and rarely see anybody.


The property has great access off of Highway 1, it borders both sides of the highway with a majority of the ranch on the west side. The main house sits above the farm field with views of Alder Creek, Pacific ocean, and the sheep pasture. The caretaker home is located by the pasture and barns. The ocean bluff has incredible views and a road that takes you down to your very own beach. The current owners have leased out the road and beach to a local horse back riding business that brings clients from all over the world to experience this beautiful coast line.
