3,778-acre Silicon Valley ranch listed for $29.68 million.
California may be the nation’s most populous state, but there are still wide swaths of the Golden State that are unspoiled, including the historic Richmond Ranch. Operated as a working cattle ranch for almost a century, the pristine tract is just 13 miles from downtown San Jose and 60 miles to San Francisco. Two ranch houses on the property date back to the 1800s.
The Richmond Ranch also shares more than three miles of fence line with the 28,539-acre San Felipe Ranch, which was acquired by Bill Hewlett and David Packard in 1954 and is still owned by their heirs. According to listing broker Terry Hundemer of The Chickering Company, Richmond Ranch is “a stunning California landscape and very convenient location. With thousands of acres of wildlife habitat that is bordered by huge tracts of protected land, the ranch’s intrinsic natural value is both evident and inspiring.”
