This $11.5 Million Rustic California Property Is Like Living at Your Favorite Summer Camp

Set among 564 acres of lush wilderness, Island Farm in San Gregorio, California is the ultimate trophy property. Now, it can be yours for a cool $11.5 million.

Conveniently located less than an hour from Silicon Valley, the redwood-dotted estate feels as if it is worlds away from the buzzy tech hub. Originally built in 1910, the property has been under the stewardship of the same family for more than a century. Over the years, the family has welcomed notable figures and dignitaries to their one-of-a-kind wooded enclave. It has also served as a venue for weddings, corporate retreats, private vacations, and other large-scale events. This is the first time in history that Island Farm has hit the market, providing buyers an opportunity to snap up one very versatile oasis.

Comprising five parcels in total, the property features six cottages, two of which are in need of restoration; multiple barns, should you want to use it as a ranch; outbuildings; a private reservoir; a spring-fed creek; and a pond. The rustic, log cabin-style buildings blend into the lush landscape and are ensconced by towering trees, including redwoods, and native plants. The cabins and the barns collectively offer 16,710 square feet of living space, 13 bedrooms, 11 full bathrooms, and one powder room. Simply put: This is the perfect multi-generational family compound or vacation home for those who love to entertain.

Perched above a tranquil pond and surrounded by trees, the main cabin has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a dock for kayaking, paddle boarding, or swimming. The interiors showcase wood floors, many wood beams supporting the double-height ceilings, and multiple skylights that flood the spaces with natural light. The great room has a dramatic stone fireplace, classic cabin decor, and even a hidden bar within the wall. The cozy, no-frills abode is also dotted with antique pieces, hand-woven rugs, and other vintage finds that feel delightfully stuck in time.
