Montana-style ranch, less than two hours from SF for sale for $5.6M

If leaving a desk in the city for a dude ranch in the country seems like your next pandemic move, this 296-acre ranch in Hopland is just two hours north of downtown San Francisco.

Dubbed Rancho Feliz, the property consists of four sprawling parcels with three homes, equestrian facilities, a vineyard, a reservoir, a swimming pool,  a generator, solar power and more. The cost of this impressive spread is equal to that of a single-family home in Noe Valley: $5.6 million.

Currently, 3563 Feliz Creek Road is owned by a champion roper relocating to Texas (which explains the professional 1.4 acre lighted roping area).

Not far from Clear Lake and the Russian River, Rancho Feliz could be a weekend getaway or primary residence for buyers who seek a haven from the city.
