 'Family, Group & Business Compounds' 
'COMPOUND'... refers to a cluster of buildings in an enclosure, having a shared or associated purpose, such as the houses of an extended family or a company or group retreat.  The enclosure may be a wall, a fence, a hedge or some other structure, or it may be formed by the buildings themselves, when they are built around an open area or joined together.  This type of use can apply to 'country property' or to a property in an 'in town' area such as downtown Healdsburg, Sonoma or Petaluma.   
PROPERTIES WITH MULTIPLE STRUCTURES may have potential for your compound, whether 'in town' or in the countryside, for use as overnight rooms or group meetings.  Some properties may also have recreation activities on-site or in close proximity such as camping, horseback riding, hiking, boating. Consider also adding a ADU unit or an Ag Housing Unit 
A WINE COUNTRY ESTATE could also be a private business compound  with tennis, bocce court, vineyards, 10 minutes access to Healdsburg's many fine restaurants, cycling and cultural events. Some estate properties we have listed also have lakes and ponds. Perhaps important, The Charles Schulz Sonoma County Airport is a 10 minute drive from Healdsburg Plaza. We have compound properties available in Healdsburg ranging in offering price price from $2,495,000 to $12,900,000.          
VACANT LAND in the country or land with minimum improvements can fit into a long term compound development plan.  Improvements can range from a barn to a small residence.  It is ideal if a well is on the property and the property has soil tests for a septic system.  Many country properties are a short drive or 'walk to town'.  8 acres, 40 acres, 99+/- acres available from $655,000 to $1,520,000      
PROPERTIES WHICH MAY BE DIVIDED could help achieve long term goals for you 
or your organization.  That may mean family members may improve a portion of the property and acquire title to that portion in their own name in the future.  It might also mean that a portion of the purchase price could be recovered by selling a portion. Properties available that are divisible for up to 5 lots from $650,000 to $1,495,000.            
AGRICULTURE is of interest for some families or groups acquiring a property for a 'hobby farm' compound.  That may include raising livestock or crops such as grapes, vegetables, and livestock ranging from chickens to horses and cattle.  Hobby farms can offer tax benefits and may produce products for profit, personal use, farmers markets - or charitable use such as supplying the Food Banks throughout Sonoma County.  We have properties available from $495,000 to $3,000,000 ideal for hobby farms.
CLIMATES IN SONOMA COUNTY are diverse.  Family members or members of an organization may prefer a coastal climate or warmer climates beginning as little as 5 miles inland.  We represent property throughout the County and I have lived in many communities in Sonoma County over the past 30 years.  Climate, views and services end up being very important for long term enjoyment of a property.  Properties are
available from the Sonoma Coast to Napa County and from Mendocino to Marin County in all price ranges.  I look forward to discussing your goals with you.
