Just south of Morgan Hill, a few miles from Watsonville Road and on the Santa Clara Wine Trail, is the turn off to Redwood Retreat Road and the way to Bates Ranch Vineyard. This was once a historic stagecoach trail leading to the tranquility of the country, and a haven for poets and writers. Today, that haven still exists in the bucolic 932 acre Bates Ranch, which has been in the same family since the late 1950s. A beautifully preserved William Wurster designed main house watches over the park setting, surrounded by heritage oaks and serene gardens that greet you as you pull up the classic gravel drive. A number of settings await your new dream home. Only 50 minutes south of Palo Alto, these private lands and vineyards await the next steward who values the opportunity to enjoy a week-end retreat, a summer place or full-time ranch. Abundant water ensures a verdant landscape, & a small natural spring-fed lake offers a haven for water fowl. Explore the miles of trails meant for hiking, horseback riding or mountain biking.
