High Ridge Ranch is located in the pasture lands and ridges forming Franz Valley in eastern Sonoma County. The main house, pool, bunk house, caretaker's house, horse barn, car barn and tennis court are each uniquely sited to take advantage of and incorporate different aspects of the natural landscape. Marking the entry to the site, the caretaker's house is capped by a cupola, and sits among four oak trees that anchor each corner of the house. The road winds its way uphill along a creek to a long, narrow horse barn that stretches across a gently sloping meadow. At the top of the hill, the main house sits just below the ridge. A central breezeway divides the house into a living room wing and a private wing; the breezeway frames a dramatic view of Mt. St. Helena.
