On a parcel of 78 acres of pristine land, amongst rolling hills, orchards of fruit trees and flying egrets of West Marin, is Moon Meadow Ranch, a 5 bedroom luxury custom home, constructed in 2006, and situated within an idyllic horse property and ranch compound, complete with seasonal creeks, frog ponds and waterfalls.
Enter the property through a private gated entrance, where you’ll pass several horse pastures, and a five-stall barn, two separate mid-century-modern guest-retreats and a remodeled pool house cabana, and 800 square foot black bottomed pool, before arriving at your destination, the main residence of Moon Meadow.
Here you’ll find a meticulous custom-built wood-shingled Arts & Crafts residence. With a bronze topped cupola, and sumptuous wrap around porch winding around 3 sides of the structure, the 4,257 square foot luxury home combines the casual ambiance of rustic mindful living, with all the refined amenities of today’s ease and comfort.
Pass through the covered porch entry and step over reclaimed sustainable wood flooring through a homey foyer with 11 foot ceilings, to enter the combined living/dining room where a bucolic stone fireplace and three sets of French doors allow for seamless outdoor/indoor living, and morning sunrise views from the large adjacent porch.
The dining room opens to a crowd-pleasing gourmet country kitchen, constructed in 2014 and highlighted by an oversized soapstone center island, featuring Energy-Star rated appliances, a Rohl Farmhouse Sink, 30-inch deep counters, all surrounded by custom clerestory windows and skylight overhead, providing fabulous light and views in every direction.
Adjacent to the kitchen is an open family/media room with pass through window to kitchen, built-ins and access to the outdoor wildflower garden, pool and cabana house.
Climb a solid oak stairway to the 2nd floor, where a ridge topped skylight filters sunlight toward four private retreats, each with individually chosen accents, such as cozy loft spaces, window seats, skylights, open beamed ceilings, custom built Arts & Crafts style doors, featuring rice paper-inlay transom windows overhead, and outfacing windows carefully designed to capture the untouched beauty of Nicasio.
A heavenly master bedroom includes a large private sleeping deck overlooking pastures and orchards below, soaring vaulted ceilings, and a large master bath, complete with blue slide art tile, limestone and marble surround an oversized soaking tub, walk in double-shower and a separate elegant toilet/sink room.
A slate floor mudroom entrance on the main floor and spacious office or 5th bedroom, plenty of well-designed hallway closets, 2nd story laundry room with marble flooring, and enormous detached 2-car garage with ample storage loft overhead, complete this stunning residence.
Not to be missed additional property outbuildings consist of two fully independent midcentury-modern vintage guests houses, including a Zen-like 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 2,000 square foot residence offering open floor plan and 360 degree stone fireplace with open redwood ceilings. A separate, utterly peaceful and serene 900 square foot one bedroom, one bath caretaker’s cottage features a screened-in Lanai patio for nature viewing.
A remodeled cabana pool house with sliding doors opening to the flagstone patio, pool and hot tub, includes reclaimed redwood kitchen cabinets, Murphy bed, full bath and private outdoor shower, for myriad entertaining possibilities.
Equestrian amenities include 5 separate fenced horse pastures which extend to the uppermost limits of the property, 2 enormous paddocks, a tack house and separate 5 stall barn with large art/meeting room and bathroom attached. Outdoor landscaping is mindfully designed to be harmonious with native growth, including rockrose, wisteria, fig trees, rose bushes, raspberries, and apple trees, all in a breathtaking pastoral setting untouched by time, but just 45 minutes from San Francisco.
