Classic Rocks Ranch is a wine enthusiast’s dream home and getaway in the most coveted premier location of Pioneertown. This tucked-away property boasts a private vineyard – the only known one of its kind in this region –that affords the discerning buyer the opportunity to step into the high-desert lifestyle at a level that rarely comes to the market.
There are 700 productive vines on the property and a solar-powered off-grid wine room. A 360-foot-deep well produces 27 gallons of water a minute. The home itself, with on-grid plus solar, is extremely desirable prime real estate with endless possibilities. Chantal Sanchez in our La Jolla Prospect office is listing agent for the 1,994-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bathroom house on five acres at 5617 Tom Mix Road, Pioneertown. It is offered at $1,995,000.
The one-story ranch-style house features an open living room, dining room, and separate great room with all-new soft-close kitchen cabinets and drawers, built-in showcase cabinets in the family room, and a covered front porch. The roof of the home is 8 years old, the HVAC system is five years old, and the home comes with an attached three-car garage.
There is a sense of tranquility as you move your way to the back of the home, boasting a large covered patio, a pond, and beautiful drought-tolerant desert landscaping: two native sugar bushes, four native scrub oaks, six native Joshua trees, 18 pine trees, nine Ocotillo cacti, five olive trees, and two Saguaro cacti.
One of the many excellent building opportunities to grow on the property is in the back of the vineyard, as an electrical box is in place there.
Pool, spa, and entertainment venue
To add to the recreational activities on the property, there is an outdoor spa and a small swimming pool near the home.
An intimate outdoor entertainment venue is on the property, where private concerts and other performances can be held. Large rocks behind the venue back up to Bureau of Land Management and Mojave Land Trust lands that are prohibited from development.
Another major attribute of this property is its location. Across the road is Pappy & Harriet’s Pioneertown Palace, a restaurant and pub where past performers have included Paul McCartney. The home is minutes away from quaint downtown Pioneertown and other tourist attractions.
Actor Dick Curtis started the town in 1946 as an 1880s-themed Old West living, breathing motion-picture set. The town was designed to provide a place for production companies to enjoy while also using their businesses and homes in movies. Hundreds of Westerns and early TV shows were filmed in Pioneertown, including “The Cisco Kid” and Edgar Buchanan’s “Judge Roy Bean.” Curtis, Roy Rogers, and Russell Hayden were some of the original developers and investors. Gene Autry filmed his weekly TV show in town for 5 years, using the buildings and businesses as part of the set.
