Seller will now consider offers on each parcel separately. Please call agents for pricing information. ONE OF A KIND MILPITAS PROPERTY featuring two legal parcels for a total of 192 acres. This extraordinary “piece of dirt” is what remains of the original Curtner-Weller ranch. The property is comprised of portions of two Spanish Land grants from the 1820’s. The Historic Curtner-Weller Ranch, also known as Rancho Higuera, in Milpitas, Santa Clara County, was part of the original 5000 acre Rancho Tularicitos. Originally enriched with prune and walnut orchards, cattle grazing and hay production; it was a real working ranch of the era! Now, the land is available again for that much desired today’s “Farm to Table” lifestyle! Privately located, the main home rests on approx. 27 fabulous ares with enchanting hierloom botanical gardens, fountains and arbors, walkways and paths that lead to shaded walnut, fig and lemon trees. Stately palms wave high above, standing sentinel and marking the traditional location of the ranch house. Established in the early days of the Santa Clara Valley, the 5 bedroom, 4 1/2 bath main house of approximately 5,000 square feet is a classic example of Italian architecture. The structure is finished with gorgeous rich redwood and includes a formal dining area, sun room, and so much more. Although of a past era, the dignity and charm could be modernized and used for many purposes, including a club house, a civic venue, a main residence or a private retreat. The ranch also features 3 smaller residences, 7 older redwood barns, a stable, paddocks and machine shop. Large shade trees look after the gardens where quail and doves abound; there is a “secret garden” feel to the property that invites you to stroll around the once formal and functional paths leading to picnic spots, a lovely swimming pool and kitchen gardens. This 192 acre oasis has beautiful rolling hills and vales with tillable acres, grazing pastures, heritage oaks, a large stock pond that presents the possibility of expanding the Family Compound theme with a farm to table rural lifestyle. The potential for development exists. Zoning may allow for additional homesites; this is the last large parcel, so close, yet with so much room to roam! The approximate 5 acre pond hosts bass and bluegill, mallards, egrets, a family of geese, herons and other waterfowl. Red tail hawks soar above green pastures where cattle, deer and wild turkey's still roam. The once working ranch and farmlands and open space is adjacent to the historic Jose Higeura Adobe Park, the fabulous Summit Pointe Golf Course and the open space of rolling hills above Milpitas. The land is zoned HS-D2 low density, with the possibility of a custom residential build, equestrian facility and hobby ranch. A gushing, year-around natural spring supplies more than ample water for the ranch and provides riparian rights to the new owner. There is beautiful arable acreage that could easily provide farm to table living as well. Nestled in the heart of Silicon Valley with ready access to all major locations in the East and South Bay areas, with some creativity, this well preserved and one of a kind property could be re-discovered as a Family Compound, Club or Retreat, complete with a Small Farm feeling and a County Lifestyle only minutes away from life in the fast lane! Come and look at this special place! SELLERS ARE WILLING TO LOOK AT SEPARATE PARCEL SALES. PLEASE CALL AGENTS FOR MORE INFORMATION.
