Buying horse property in Sonoma County offers a unique opportunity for equestrian enthusiasts to combine their love for horses with the wine country lifestyle and convenience to San Francisco and the Bay Area. When deciding what type of property to buy you have two choices: purchasing a property with facilities already in place or developing a horse setup to your exact needs on “horse-able” property. The latter means finding a property that has the terrain, soils, zoning, location and microclimate that will allow you to put in your own facilities and design them as you wish–for you and your horses’ needs. No need to adapt a setup for Arabs (smaller stalls) to your larger warmbloods, for example.
One thing to consider when buying (or selling) a horse property is that it makes sense to work with a realtor who knows horses so you can fully explore these options and have a trusted advisor in your corner who understands your needs and concerns. It will save you time, money and aggravation in the long run, and bring you that much closer to realizing your dream of owning horse property in the wine country!
Below is a list of designated horse properties (this means only those that the listing agent has designated as such) that are currently for sale in Sonoma County. If you’re interested in buying or selling your horse property reach out to me! This list only scratches the surface. I have 20+ years of experience selling country properties and keeping my horses at home. I’d love to learn more about your needs and provide you with a more personalized search.
