Shiloh Oaks Estate
Santa Rosa, Sonoma County, California
Shiloh Oaks Estate is an incredible building parcel, one of the largest estate pieces in prestigious gated Shiloh Estates, located between Santa Rosa and Healdsburg, in the heart of Northern California’s wine country [and about an hour north of San Francisco].
As part of the master planning of Shiloh Lots 4 and 5 were combined and comprise a single building parcel of about 75 acres +/-, making it one of the largest estate parcels in the community. This piece is quite extraordinary in that it offers impressive views, as do many of the lots here and it also has a lot of usable ground, providing great potential to create your vision (or something similar). If you just want a house on a hilltop with big views like these, why not own the hill? You will. But if you also want a piece of property with graceful, gently sloping land that you can wander and picnic on, or plant gardens or a vineyard upon, then you can have that here, too. In fact, this is one of only a few parcels zoned for equestrian use and could become one of the premier equestrian estates in Northern California.
The terrain here is beautiful and you can drive all the way around the parcel. Studded with stunning heritage oaks, madrone and manzanita, the trees provide cover & some shade to give relief to the big open, sunny meadows beyond. Peace and quiet is only interrupted by the crickets and birdsong or the rustle of deer grazing in the long grass.
With Shiloh Regional Park right next door offering a wealth of riding and hiking trails, and right down the street from famed English riding and dressage instructors, this area abounds with terrific riding opportunities. Approximately 20-25[?] acres suitable for grazing with good soils, good drainage and city water give this property an unusually high Horse Score! There are three accesses to the parcel, making it possible to create separate entrances for the home and barn/arena areas.
Shiloh Estates is a high end home community which prohibits large scale agricultural or any commercial activity. But it is zoned for private vineyard use, so it is possible to plant, grow, harvest and even sell your grapes to one of the many ultra-premium wineries in the area. Perhaps it’s time to create your own personal wine brand?
Shiloh Estates is a highly sought after, gated community of over 1800 acres of natural beauty which offers approximately 69 large [comment: some are 2-5 acres] country parcels, most of which have impressive views. The community offers paved road access, underground utilities and is comprised entirely of custom built homes. All share a high level of quality but there is no imposed design stamp here. Shiloh is approximately 85% built out [helpful?]. This is a wonderful spot for those who want to build their dream home and have the security of knowing that the surrounding properties will all be developed to similarly high standards.
Shiloh is nestled adjacent to the world-class Mayacama Golf Club-- a private golf community boasting a Top 100 ranked championship Jack Nicklaus Signature course, with extensive swim and tennis facilities, and a magnificent clubhouse complete with a European-style spa, an unmatched private wine cellar stocked by some of the world’s greatest vintners (many of whom are also members), gourmet dining, and 5 star, resort quality service. The golf is challenging but playable at any level as everyone is accompanied by an experienced caddy, which is extremely helpful for less confident players!
Also adjacent is the 850 acre Shiloh Ranch Regional Park which offers about eight miles of wonderful hiking, mountain biking and horse riding trails for your outdoor enjoyment. Located about an hour north of San Francisco, Shiloh Estates is ideally situated in the Wine Country with close proximity to the Sonoma County Airport, hundreds of world class wineries, restaurants and a host of outdoor recreational activities.
