Detailed Description:

Winding through a two-lane country road framed in by towering Douglas Fir and Redwood Forest until emerging into the bright sunlight of Elk Meadow Ranch, one is mesmerized by the purity of this idyllic landscape. Set in the coastal mountain range of central Mendocino County, the Elk Meadow Ranch exudes the serenity of an undiscovered alpine sanctuary where elk and deer carelessly feed in its lush meadow while eagles and hawks circle overhead. Though only a short 15-minute drive out of Willits, one feels as if they are completely removed from chaos of modern society.
Elk Meadow Ranch encompasses 50 acres of manicured grounds including a sprawling meadow encased and protected by a curtain of century old Douglas Firs. The Smith Family bought the Ranch back in 1975 with its existing old craftsman style house in a worn but functional state. It was not until 2014 that the Smith?s embarked on a major and meticulous remodel and expansion of the house, transforming the structure into what could only be considered a living piece of art that preserved its historical integrity while incorporating modern functionality. Attention to detail is evident in every aspect of the house. Much of the redwood and fir used in the project were sourced and milled from the Smith?s timber holdings. In an era where emphasis is put on the economic bottom-line and not pride of craftsmanship, it?s a rarity to see the level of quality construction.
The house consists of 2 bedrooms, 2 baths with each room show casing the different woods used to their true magnificence. The house is serviced by PG&E with a backup generator. Two wells provide the water. Besides the house, there is a stand-alone and sturdily built Workshop/ Garage. Opposite the house is also a tastefully done studio cabin. There is a consistent and harmonic theme between all the structures. One clearly see the appropriateness of the structures to the environment.
Wildlife abounds on the Ranch and from the perch above the meadow where the house is situated one can take in this menagerie as if it is an ongoing play of nature that is ever varying. Elk, blacktail deer, wild hogs, black bear, wild turkeys, valley and mountain quail, bobcats and mountain lions and blue grouse all call this home.
There is ample useable acreage that could be developed for orchards, vineyards and gardens. Livestock and horses would also thrive in this setting. The Elk Meadow Ranch is a canvas that is ready for its next steward to either enjoy as it is or to modify to suit their needs. Regardless of the direction taken, the ambiance of the Ranch will serve to bring fulfillment for years to come
