Magnificent Bonsall Canyon regenerative farm and ranch estate with mid-century modern home on two adjoining parcels for a total of nearly ten acres. Bucolic setting with a seasonal creek, iconic sycamores, oaks, and orchards.
One parcel of approximately 3.95 acres has been the home of family-owned and operated Zuma Orchids since the 1970s; the adjacent parcel of approximately 6 acres is the site of a newly refurbished mid-century modern home. The combined properties have two entrances with a long driveway, plus a service entrance.
The grounds have been rigorously nurtured, managed, and restored by former Apricot Lane Farms manager, Trevor Jahangard (Biggest Little Farm). Restored and maintained without herbicides, fungicides, or tilling, to ensure bio-density and ecosystem health. Two huge greenhouses support orchid cultivation and the productive landscape features orchards of avocados, macadamia nuts, plus bay, strawberry madrone, walnut, persimmon, fig, apples, pears, peaches, plums, apricots, nectarines, mandarin oranges, oranges, grapefruit, limes, guava, sapota, pomegranates, cherimoya, mulberry, carob, banana, and more.
The residence overlooks the property with walls of glass and a wide viewing deck. The home has been restored to honor mid-century design and features an open floor plan, high beamed ceilings, clerestory windows, a huge stone hearth, and hardwood floors.
There is a large, en-suite detached guest house that is being used as an office, which has been beautifully restored with wood planking throughout the interior. There is also an artist/writer's studio on a flat pad overlooking the property, corrals for livestock, a tool shed, a shipping container for storage, a hay shed, and a feed shed.
Less than a mile from Zuma Beach, the verdant grounds make an idyllic setting for grand celebration and entertainment, a majestic ultra-private estate, or further developed as an upscale equestrian property. With its attractive proximity to shops, restaurants, and schools, plus its exceptional size and seclusion, this property presents a rare opportunity for a visionary owner.
