Coldwell Banker announced that their seasoned professional, Jack Markle, will be hosting an unusual open house on Sunday, Oct. 13. It's at 500 Maranatha Dr. in Hollister, CA. This is a beautiful mini-ranch of 5 acres located just south of the City of Hollister with very convenient access to Santa Clara and Monterey Counties. It is adjacent to the premium winemaker, Leal Vineyards, makers of some of the finest red wines in the region and outstanding Chardonnay and Viognier. Leal also has a fabulous entertainment pavilion on a pond where many weddings and other special events take place.
Markle says that this property is ideal for those who would like some space around them or for keeping horses or even planting some grapes. It's at the end of the road so privacy is assured yet it's only about 5 miles to shopping. There is cross fencing for 2 pastures with room for another. A 60' round pen remains with the property and there are 2 run-in shelters for the animals.
If you like to grow some of your own vegetables, try out the fenced yard with several raised planter beds. For casual home entertainment, there are well landscaped yards in the front and back. The front porch is a very pleasant place to relax and take in the frequent color-spectacular sunsets flooding the eastern hills with colors that you will think are fake because they are so magnificently vivid.
"The newer house is perfect for a small family or a couple. The family room, dining area and kitchen are like a "Great Room" with a gorgeous open area, vaulted ceilings and a fireplace," said Markle. It has a very nice master bedroom and bath with a sliding door out to the patio. In addition, there is a 3 car garage.
If you're going: From Fairview Rd., take John Smith Rd. to the first right turn. Follow Heatherwood around to the right to Maranatha and turn right again. From Airline Highway (Hwy. 25) turn onto Best Rd. by Ridgemark Golf & Country Club and then left onto Maranatha. Go to the end and you're there.
