Property description

The Big Hat Ranch is nestled at the base of the Mendocino National Forest and Snow Mountain with 360 degree panoramic views rarely experienced in cattle country. Whether you are looking for a small, beautiful getaway ranch, or the opportunity to indulge a Western lifestyle with horses and livestock, Big Hat has it all. The 49.6+/- acre site includes a charming ranch house approximately 1,116 sq ft with covered veranda and huge entertainment area including firepit, bocce ball and expansive lawn area perfect for volleyball, ping pong or corn hole!

Majestic views of the sunrise over East Park Reservoir or sunsets over Snow Mountain will take your breath away. The Ranch offers the opportunity to enjoy the natural rhythms of nature. Walk trails, listen to birds and watch the various critters that call Big Hat Ranch home. For the active at heart there is dirt bike riding, trap shooting, hunting, horseback riding, hiking or boating. The Ranch is only minutes from downtown Stonyford with a general store, gas station and famous annual “Stonyford Rodeo” … the place for a rocking good time by all. In addition, the nearby towns of Maxwell, Elk Creek and Willows offer shopping, dining and other services.

Upon entering the private, gated Ranch you will meander up a wide gravel road to the crown of the Ranch where you will find the “heart” of the property. There is a large utility barn with an equipment/toy storage bay and guest apartment with full bathroom and kitchen. This is a perfect place for friends and family, ranch hand, potential vacation rental or ranch office. The well/pump house and small utility garage/equipment carport provide additional storage and covered parking.

Built in 2010, the Prairie style Ranch house is a 2 bedroom, 1 bath “open concept” floorplan with expansive windows, concrete floors and beautiful finish work throughout. Lovely wood doors, stone countertops, stainless steel appliances and wood burning stove contribute the cozy and well thought out design and experience on the Ranch. There is a separate laundry/utility/storage room and ample cabinet and storage throughout the house. With views from every room, the house is filled with light.

Enjoy music on the patio with stereo speakers wired to the exterior, and gas BBQ hookup for your grille. Fully fenced with a variety of gorgeous trees to shade the yard, you have a green oasis amid the prairie grasses and surrounding oak trees that make up the Big Hat landscape. Finally, for those that have that vintage trailer or RV calling… there is a full pad and hook up just steps away from the main house and utility barn. Hip Camp and Outdoorsy guest heaven! Big Hat Ranch offers the ability to get away from it all without having to sacrifice those special touches that make it so special.

Conveniently located northwest of Sacramento, and a few hours from the east and north bay, Interstate 5 at Maxwell or Willows will bring you to Stonyford. Hwy 162 with horse and trailer or Sites-Lodoga Road for a scenic drive through cow country.
