Main House

The Ravenridge property occupies a serene hilltop with expansive views of untamed open space. Situated at the westernmost tip of a mountain ridge, the two Cottages at Ravenridge and the main residence overlook the upper Dry Creek watershed as it flows southward through the valley below. The splendid panorama looks upon ranges of near and distant mountains receding to the horizon. Vast sky views offer stunning sunrises, sunsets, cloud formations, rainbows, and exceptional stargazing. The seasons bring a pageant of changing light, color, weather, and wildlife. A private oasis, intimately surrounded by nature, this extraordinary property is a physical and spiritual sanctuary.

The custom designed main residence occupies an open ridge-top plateau at approximately 1,450 feet elevation and commands sweeping views of the Anderson Valley. The 3,800± square foot 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home is graciously appointed with a gourmet chef’s kitchen, generous dining and living spaces, veranda, sleeping porch and design studio with private courtyard.
