House of the Day: A Naturally Spectacular Rancho
The problem with most ranches, at least for this city slicker, is that they look so, well, ranch-y. The Mill Creek Ranch
in Red Bluff, Calif., just listed at $29.5 million, would be a spectacular Spanish-style home no matter where you built it. Having it on more than 25,000 deeded acres and surrounded by the splendor of the Lassen National Forest and the Ishi Wilderness just elevates its standing.
The 7,800-square-foot Spanish Colonial has stone archways, tiled murals, handsome wood built-ins, more fireplaces than you have fingers, a gourmet kitchen and resort-style pool.
The grounds abound with wildlife, including bobcats, mountain lions, hawks, eagles, turkeys, quail and one of the state's larges deer herds, which migrates through the ranch.
The property includes a foreman's house
, guest house, housing
for staff, barns and cattle facilities. Mill Creek flows through the property for about 20 miles.
Bill McDavid with Hall and Hall is the listing agent.
