1102 Burlington Rd, Pioneertown, CA 92268
Welcome to Thunderbird Ranch, recently featured in Dwell- a meticulously remodeled historic ranch home on 5 separate parcels totaling 45 acres just outside of the legendary Pioneertown. Designed by a film director and his artist partner with an acute eye for detail over the course of nearly 8 years, every square inch of the home is hand-fabricated and custom made with no expense spared. This 5 parcel property is an extremely lucrative proposition- any of the individual parcels could be easily sold or developed, in addition to remaining as a single sprawling ranch.Thunderbird Ranch is an Off-Grid paradise in Burns Canyon offering complete privacy and serenity with undisturbed views of the valleys and foothills in every direction. Located where the High Desert meets the Alpine, the property is home to thousands of some of the world's largest and oldest Joshua Trees (even more majestic than the National Park), ancient Juniper, Pinon, and a multitude of native flora and fauna. Being at a slightly higher elevation than Pioneertown, this locale enjoys a more temperate climate and higher levels of precipitation.The property opens onto thousands of acres of protected wildlands, National Forest and BLM- simply hop on your horse or bike and you're immediately in some of the most pristine and stunning undiscovered landscapes that Southern California has to offer.The home itself comes fully furnished, and includes a priceless list of additional items from vintage and custom-made site-specific furniture, to original artworks, a 1920's restored Sohmer grand piano, a 1974 city bus art studio (which could be converted into a guest house or an office), a vintage top of the line Marantz sound system, AR speakers, copper cookware, hand pottered Oaxacan dishware, and a new Blaze King wood fireplace to enjoy on winter evenings.Thunderbird Ranch was built with the absolute highest quality of materials ranging from custom-fabricated steel-frame dual pane windows and doors throughout, to reclaimed solid old growth maple and oak floors, tin stamped ceilings imported from Europe, and hand-carved cabinetry with raw blue slate countertops made from property-sourced woods such as Acacia burl and Juniper.The exterior of the house is weathering Corten steel with a new metal panel galvalume roof. Nearly 1500 sq ft of decking on two stories wrap around the home offering magnificent views in all directions and outdoor enjoyment in every season. The back deck facing west has ample lounge and dining seating, along with an outdoor kitchen with Weber bbq and pizza oven, an outdoor shower with solid brass hardware, a plumbed propane quartz rock fire pit and a quartz rock wood-burning hot tub. Below the house is a large spring-fed pond measuring roughly 30' in diameter with a dock.Beneath the rustic styling is a completely upgraded and updated home- Some of the items include new electrical and plumbing systems, new Samsung stainless appliances, on-demand hot water system, washer / dryer, built-in drinking water RO filter, Starlink high speed satellite internet streaming 4K content on a 5' flatscreen LG cinema tv, and a highly efficient central heating and cooling system on a smart Nest thermostat. Completely self sufficient and Off Grid, Thunderbird Ranch is powered by a large cutting edge 7Kw solar system with lithium battery bank that leaves you wanting for nothing, not to mention never paying a utility bill again. A high volume, extremely plentiful 450' deep water well is operated automatically by a dedicated solar array and a brand new top of the line Grundfos variable well pump with associated plumbing and wiring installed just last year.With a history as an active horse property, the lower 5 acres and house are fenced with two separate corrals and a 3-4 horse shelter, while the two middle 10 acre parcels are open as a wildlife corridor, and the upper two 10 acre parcels are fenced.In Burns Canyon the genuine romance of the Old West is still alive up here.
