The Art of What We Do
Uniting Extraordinary People with Extraordinary Homes
Our mission in real estate is to unite extraordinary people with extraordinary homes. We are very fortunate to work with some extremely interesting and accomplished people that want to live in an area filled with natural beauty in a fantastic home with spectacular views. Two such neighborhoods we specialize in are the enchanting Shiloh Estates and Mayacama.
Nestled in the foothills of the Mayacamas in northeastern Sonoma County, majestic oaks dot golden foothills and wind upward through extraordinary landscape to arrive at the entrance of two of the most beautiful residential communities in Northern California. Shiloh Estates and Mayacama are located at the epicenter of the Sonoma County wine country and less than 60 miles from San Francisco.
Sonoma County is home to some of the world’s most renowned wineries; residents of Shiloh and Mayacama find there is more to the wine country than the wine. It is about a remarkable lifestyle that is centered on family, friends, good health and remarkable beauty. The residents of Shiloh Estates and Mayacama tend to be very interesting, well rounded, well traveled, cultured, entrepreneurial and diversified. There are a number of fine homes and estates in these cultured neighborhoods with interesting architecture, stunning views and abundant natural beauty.
Shiloh Estates was conceived in the late 1980’s by a partnership of local business leaders that included the famed cartoonist Charles Schulz, and comprised over 2700 acres of some of Sonoma’s most impressive terroir. It was the goal of this partnership to preserve and protect the beauty of the natural resources and provide a unique opportunity for those individuals with the same passion for the environment to create private estates.
Approximately 850 acres of the ranch were dedicated to create the Shiloh Ranch Regional Park and another 600 +/- acres were developed by a separate development group who developed Mayacama, a renowned private golf and residential community located adjacent to Shiloh Estates. The gated community of Shiloh Estates comprises the remaining 1300 acres and is home to distinctive private country estates situated on large rural parcels with stunning views, near perfect weather and a sense of community that is as unique as it is extraordinary.
Many residents of Shiloh Estates enjoy resort style living and membership in the adjacent Mayacama Golf Club, where a vibrant club life is joined by an active sporting life. The championship Jack Nicklaus signature course, ranked among the Top 100 in America, features world class golf and tennis, swimming, bocce, a splendid spa, a rich culinary program, a robust Juniors’ Program roundout the experience at Mayacama.
In addition to hiking and horseback riding in the Shiloh Regional Park, active Shiloh residents enjoy abundant outdoor activities such as cycling through some of the most picturesque countryside and boating on Lake Sonoma or fishing in the Russian River.
Shiloh Estates is located at the gateway to Sonoma County’s diverse wine growing regions of the Russian River Valley, Dry Creek Valley and Alexander Valley and the popular wine industry events, summer concerts series and the romantic allure of the region punctuate the essence of wine country living. Communities rich in agricultural traditions feature the best in ‘farm-to-table” cuisine, highly acclaimed restaurants and local farmers’ markets. The quaint town of Healdsburg is located nearby and has gained worldwide recognition for its charming central plaza dotted with an abundance of tasting rooms, boutique shopping and chic hotels, coffee shops and small town atmosphere.
The story of Shiloh Estates began with a vision and like the characteristics of fine wine; it becomes more satisfying, more valuable, more appreciated and more unique with age. Whether a weekend destination or primary residence, this is a special place for those residents who are fortunate enough to call this home.
We currently have an exciting listing in Shiloh Estates that was recently featured in the Press Democrat as a timeless and romantic property. You may read the full article here.
“Nestled amidst lush gardens, this Provence-meets-California country manor exudes timeless European elegance — its view loggia evokes a sense of nobility: of knights, of maidens, of troubadours, of chivalry and of courtly love.
While it may not outshine the affectionate architecture of the Taj Mahal or rival the riveting romance of Boldt Castle, this sophisticated sanctuary certainly beguiles while, at the same time, signaling that home is still where the heart is. All the ingredients for a Sonoma County courtship are here: from expansive views of rolling hills dotted with century-old gnarly oaks to a cherry wood paneled library complete with fireplace that can make a slow burning romance spark into everlasting love.” – Sofia Englund, The Press Democrat
