One-of-a-Kind Historic 12.8 Acre Estate
One-of-a-kind 12.8 acre estate on Branciforte Creek featuring the original 7BR 4000+SF Mediterranean Villa "Casa de Montgomery" built in 1932, with attached guest unit plus an 8000+SF wing built in 1972 that added 17BR with commercial kitchen, dining hall, high ceilings and ADA hallways, totaling 13,955 SF, 26BR, 6 full baths+14 half baths.
A prior applicant proposed to demo and rebuild as a 100-bed assisted living facility, but due to septic and budget constraints has been deemed more cost-effective to renovate the villa and re-design the 8000SF wing for a wide range of Level 5 Use possibilities such as school, religious or retreat center with likely max 25 occupant limit.
Or simply convert the second building for recreational use or storage, with renovation costs likely to run additional $2MM-$3MM on top of purchase. Main water source is 50 GPM well. Includes deeded water rights to creek, plus 5 dry ponds from a now-defunct treatment system that can be repurposed as scenic water features
