This private estate (in the Del Oro school district) offers breathtaking views stretching from vineyards and neighboring ranches to Lincoln and the Coastal Mountains. Set on splitable land with usable acreage, the property boasts a vineyard, pond, guest house, and beautifully remodeled primary home. SEE THE FULL FEATURE LIST BELOW.

As you enter through the gates, a picturesque landscape unfolds before you—rolling vineyards of various varieties, lush lawns dotted with fruit trees, and panoramic vistas that captivate at every turn. The home welcomes you with a screened-in family room deck that seamlessly connects to an outdoor kitchen garden. Experience the serenity of nature, shielded from the elements, as you relax and unwind in this tranquil and quiet space, watching the kids fish in the pond and play on the lawn.

Step inside to the heart of the home—the great room. Cathedral ceilings soar overhead, while a skylight and expansive windows bathe the space in natural light. A gas fireplace adds warmth and ambiance, complementing the wood-colored tile floors that flow throughout. Two sliding doors lead to the expansive deck, perfect for alfresco dining or simply soaking in the scenery.

The remodeled chef’s kitchen is a culinary delight, featuring stainless steel appliances, a picture window over the sink, and a center island that doubles as a breakfast bar. Whether you’re hosting a dinner party or preparing a quiet meal at home, this kitchen is sure to inspire your inner chef.

For overnight guests or extended family, the approximately 365 sq ft studio offers a private retreat. Complete with a separate entry, full bath, and kitchenette, it provides all the comforts of home away from home.

Retreat to the luxurious master suite, also on the main level—a haven of comfort and elegance. Cathedral ceilings add drama, while picture windows and a private balcony offer uninterrupted views. A sitting room with its own heat and air provides a cozy spot for reading or relaxation on days with more extreme temperatures, creating a serene escape at the end of the day.

The lower level of the home features two additional bedrooms, a remodeled hall bath, and a second family room, offering a versatile space for entertainment or relaxation. With access to the backside patio, it’s the perfect spot for an infinity edge pool, sunbathing, or quiet moments of reflection and admiration of the wildflowers, gorgeous rock outcroppings, and views from “the top of the world.”

This home is truly an entertainer’s paradise, offering a seamless blend of indoor and outdoor living spaces. Whether you’re hosting a summer barbecue, hiking the private trail down to the canal trail, making wine, or simply relaxing and watching the winter sunsets turn into a twinkling horizon of Lincoln city lights while stargazing under the dark sky overhead, this property offers endless opportunities for relaxation and enjoyment.
