Rare California Listing: The Green Acre Ranch in Somis (1-hour from LA)

Mar. 28th, 2024

The Green Acre Ranch (8018 Balcom Canyon Road), is the epitome of Hollywood luxury and California living. This one-of-a-kind luxury ranch is listed for $7.35M by Rochelle Maize and Myra Nourmand of Nourmand & Associates.

Luxurious ranch living is one of the hottest new home trends and celebrities including Donald Glover and Kelis have purchased ranches in rural California while Calvin Harris even purchased a 183-acre farm in Ibiza. Many credit the simplicity and privacy that farm and ranch living offer as the main incentive for purchasing.

At the Green Are Ranch, located in Somis, CA, the buyer has a rare opportunity to turn a profit with the 1,500 matured avocado, pomegranate, and lemon trees on the property. Previously, the trees generated a revenue of $72k in 2023 and $84.5k in 2022. The ranch also features an 11-still barn for miniature horses and 5-beds and 5-baths. The property has a storied Hollywood history as well, and the seller, Mary Hollander, used to have parties at the property where Hollywood musicians would come up on the first Sunday of the month.

Location: 1 hr. from Beverly Hills, a little further than Calabasas
