Property description

Welcome Home to Verboom Ranch! Rarely do site and structure so perfectly align to evoke such a strong and lasting sense of wonder. Situated on 38 acres on a stunning and historically rich landscape, this property presents a unique experience born from its premier location and architectural excellence. This incomparable country home is a dream with all the amenities and opportunities to cultivate your own income with possibilities for use an equestrian property, a venue for holding weddings and other celebrations, or a idyllic pastureland and home.

Country Road 11 will take you home where wide-open expanses and rolling fields of green surround you in a natural wealth of peace and opportunity. Consisting of a 3,308Sqft Main House, with an amazing 2100 sq.ft of covered porch area both front and back, 2,638Sqft Restored School House, 8,280Sqft Red Barn, and 15,480Sqft Hay Barn, plus gated in-ground pool, this tranquil setting is perfectly appointed to start living the country life you've been dreaming about.

At the heart of the property sits the main house, offering three bedrooms and two bathrooms with a breathtakingly gorgeous contemporary-farmhouse charm. Pride of ownership shows throughout in the details, from the magnificent brick statement living room fireplace to the attractive wooden beadboard ceilings and trim work. Settle in with a good book in the cozy built-in bay window or cook magnificent meals in the grand kitchen. Beautiful brick work augments the electric stovetop as well as carries through cohesively in special feature walls. Custom cabinetry wraps the room, a window over the sink frames out pastoral sightings, and a breakfast bar invites all to sit down for good conversation or intimate meals in this large family kitchen. Also on the property is an actual schoolhouse that was built serve the children of settlers on the Murdock track west of Orland from its opening date of 1919 until it closed its doors in 1944 due to the growing prevalence of family cars which marked an end of rural schoolhouses and the consolidation of town schools. You will also find two amazing barns on the property, both ready for any activity you could desire, from hosting youth events or weddings to creating an equestrienne oasis.

Under the workmanship and care of Mr. Verboom, the property saw the restoration of the Murdock Schoolhouse as well as the addition of the home and two big barns. The red barn on the hill evolved into a basketball court where friends, family and the community would come to play pickup games. This also provided a location for the Providence Schools to play matches and eventually led to the acquiring and remodeling of the same building into a warehouse gym. Also, under the ownership of Mr. Verboom were the celebrated "Cowboy Days" - a bluegrass event the Verboom family used to put on at the property that held anywhere from 400-1000 attendees. While this esteemed ranch serves as a testament to the gracious life of its owner, this property is ready now to serve its next owners and to provide a deep source of joy and meaning in whichever way touches the heart. Approx. a 30-minute drive to Chico and only minutes from town, this custom home and ranch is one-of-a-kind and simply must be experienced to be believed!
