The recent California fires, particularly those in Northern California, devastated entire regions. A friend of mine told me a story of their friends who were looking for a vacation home in the Napa area and found one that they were considering to buy. They left town and just a few days later they learned that the home they were thinking of purchasing had burned down. They were lucky, but many were not. The fires caused loss and injury. Many people were displaced and stories of price gouging for rental housing in an area hit hard by the fires started to emerge. While some people took advantage of the situation, others decided to do a good deed. One such person was the owner of Knowlton Farms Vineyard & Estate located in Sebastopol, California, who rented the homes on his 6+ acre property to first responders for free or at a heavily discounted rate. The owner has since decided to sell the property because he wishes to move to New York City and doesn’t want the responsibility of managing the property from the east coast. The owner purchased the property 15 years ago and has done several additions and updates. He’s also leaving everything behind, including the kitchen plates! All you need is to do is pack your bags and for $5.25 million, the property could be yours. Considering the amount of land and number of structures on the property, and the fact that it’s California real estate (i.e. never affordable) it actually seems like a fair price. The official listing is here.
