This 46 +/- acre rolling parcel is home to 'Thunderhead Ranch' in the rural community of Creston. Perched on a hilltop and nestled among beautiful oak-studded acres lies this magnificent equestrian ranch and private retreat designed in the traditional California Ranch Vaquero style. The property's gated and paved road takes you along rolling hills of indigenous oaks and digger pines surrounded by abundant wildlife, native vegetation, lakes with natural waterways as you gain elevation and opens onto a true piece of authentic California.
The main single level home with luxurious pool and spa features a gourmet kitchen, ranch room, living room, owners en suite with amenities such as oak hardwood floors, wood-burning fireplaces, vaulted ceilings, and limestone courtyard. The three car garage with wired surround sound and ceiling fans open onto the views to the east and attaches to the studio space with 24 hour modern Swedish fireplace, abundant natural lighting, surround sound speakers, and much more.
The expansive equestrian property is laid out and designed for true eventing across the three disciplines of dressage, cross-country, and show jumping. The four stall pole barn was hand-built with tongue and groove spruce pine which reflects a traditional design and features an additional matching foaling barn, tack room, and standard 100'x200' arena located atop sweeping views across the Creston Valley. The ranch is divided into four ten acre +/- pastures with two layup paddocks which encircle the property with the home, barn, and lower private lake sitting within the center.
Situated on a knoll, the property backs up to large ranches and hundreds of acres of open range with views abound in all directions, from stunning vistas of the La Panza range to the Pozo summit and beyond. The property is one of four within the Iron Springs subdivision with shared lake and high producing agriculture well, holding tank and gravity fed water system all while situated along the Huer Huero Creek which is ephemeral underground stream that flows directly to the Salinas River. Thunderhead Ranch also features an individual private residential well which can be utilized as needed. Enjoy the privacy and solace of living the rural lifestyle where you can be inspired and escape, all within three +/- miles from the original 1800's cowboy town of Creston with country market, saloon, steak house, post office, grammar school, annual rodeo and much more.
