Property Description

One-of-a-kind 12.8 acre estate on Branciforte Creek featuring the original 7BR 3000+SF Mediterranean Villa "Casa de Montgomery" built in 1932, with attached caretaker quarters, plus 8000+SF wing built in 1972 that added 17BR with commercial kitchen, dining hall, high ceilings & ADA hallways. Buildings total 13,955 SF, 26BR, 6 full baths+14 1/2 baths, mostly gutted. A prior applicant proposed to demo & rebuild as a 100-bed assisted living facility, but due to site & budget constraints is deemed more cost-effective to renovate and re-design for a wide range of Level 5 Use possibilities such as a school, religious or health-related center with likely max 25 occupant limit per recent perc test. Or simply renovate the home and use the second building for rec use or storage. Renovation costs likely to run additional $2MM-$4MM on top of purchase. Has 50 GPM well, plus deeded water rights to creek, and 5 dry ponds from a defunct treatment system that can be repurposed as scenic water features.
