This premier estate, known as Winner’s Circle, is located in the heart of the Russian River Valley. This 7,500± sq. ft. luxury home in Sebastopol embodies California contemporary design, and features panoramic mountain and valley views from every window. A guest house, caretaker’s unit, and barn add value and interest to the property. Featuring 24.6± acres of organic Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vineyards plus a potential rental income through Inspirato, this is an incredible opportunity for the luxury home buyer and/or vineyard investor.
When the Winner’s Circle owners had the chance to purchase the remaining 61± acres of what had been the Walter’s Vine Hill Ranch, they saw a unique opportunity to use their expertise to plant 25± acres of world class, organic Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on arguably some of the best soils and terroir in the world. They also were inspired to take the iconic Walter family home and reinvigorate it to include the history of both the Walter family and their success in the thoroughbred horse racing sphere.
There are 24.6 ± acres of premium organic vineyards planted by Advanced Viticulture in 2015. The vineyards consist of 5.5± Acres Chardonnay (Mount Eden and Old Wente Clones) and 19.1± Acres Pinot Noir (Calera, Swan, Mount Eden, Pommard, 38 and 943 Clones). The vineyard uses state-of-the-art irrigation systems and soil moisture monitoring equipment.
The main residence is located in a private setting on the property’s highest elevation overlooking the vineyards below and valley beyond. Floor-to-ceiling glass walls and doors bring the outside in, offering spectacular, expansive views from each room.
The guest house shares the entry courtyard with the main residence. The unit is accessible from the main residence via a short covered walkway. The generous one bedroom boasts stunning views and an open floor plan.
Located on the smaller of the two parcels, the caretaker’s unit has two bedrooms and one bathroom. A horse barn featuring six stables and an open interior also shares this second parcel. The barn currently houses the irrigation equipment for the vineyards. Situated adjacent to the barn is an equine aqua-tred.
