Longview Ranch is a modern home set atop 187 acres of private land. Originally an industrial workshop, Longview is now a home of modern luxury juxtaposed against dramatic wilderness.
As one of the private ranches on Orr Springs Road, Longview is a perfect hot springs escape, wine country stopover, family vacation, artist gathering or civilized rambling holiday.
While Longview's private grounds provide endless opportunities for adventure, the ranch is just a mile from Orr Hot Springs Resort, where visitors can partake in the resort's day services. A few miles away is Montgomery Woods, a pristine redwood grove. Day trips include Mendocino Village, Anderson Valley's wine country and Hopland.
Longview's gourmet kitchen, two 10 person tables (one indoor, one outdoor) and setting make it well-suited for intimate gatherings around food, both in preparation and eating. An extensive collection of Heath dinnerware - Sausalito's celebrated mid-century ceramics - ensures feasting in modern style. A picnic lunch on one of the property's scenic outlooks is also highly recommended. Ukiah's Food Coop and local culture make fresh fixings easily accessible.
Longview is owned by a family with young children, and provides 2 portable cribs, toys and creative endeavors for children of all ages. There is a fort-like bedroom for children to pile into, and each Queen bedroom is large enough to share with children. A 1000 square feet of open studio space is great for messy projects and after dark roller derbies. A huge porch and fenced acre of yard make it easy for parents to let kids run freely. There is also a hilltop fairy ring for picnics, tea parties and tree climbs with views to boot. Longview is baby proofed for electrics, cooking, windows and staircase. Basic First Aid is provided, and Ukiah's hospital can be reached within 20 minutes.

I am an Industrial Designer and Montessori school teacher. My husband is a floppy-haired Englishman with no apparent end to his talents. We met in London, married in Colorado, had babies in New York and now work in the Bay Area. We are passionate about the wilderness, modern design and creating an amazing space for small gatherings of family and friends. These values are strongly reflected at Longview.
