Annie Leibovitz list her Northern California ranch

Renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz is selling her historic 65-acre Northern California ranch, listed at US$8.995 million.

Acquired in 2019, the property, known as The Hideaway, is situated in Bolinas, a secluded seaside community favoured by artists, Hollywood figures, and tech entrepreneurs, according to the Robb Report.

The ranch, which dates back to the 1800s, has a rich creative legacy, having hosted luminaries like Ansel Adams and Warren Hellman, founder of the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival.

The Hideaway offers breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, Bolinas Lagoon, Stinson Beach, Mount Tamalpais, and distant San Francisco.

Its structures, some dating back to the 1920s and 1930s, include a renovated main residence with four bedrooms, a one-bedroom guesthouse, a caretaker’s residence, and a converted garage.

Notably, the property features a dairy barn converted into a recording studio by Hellman and extensive equestrian facilities including a seven-stall horse barn and a large riding arena.

Leibovitz’s investment in the ranch included nearly US$2 million in upgrades, notably a new kitchen and major infrastructural enhancements, yet the property retains its rustic farmhouse appeal.

The ranch’s diverse buildings also encompass a hay barn and additional stalls for horses and livestock, set among rolling hills, lush forests, and verdant pastures.

“The Hideaway at 605 Horseshoe Hill Road stands as a historic property with a legacy of notable stewardship,” stated Alexander Lurie of Compass, the co-listing agent.

He highlighted its history as a creative hub for musicians and artists, adding to its global and local historical significance.

This sale comes during a busy period for Leibovitz in the real estate market.

She recently sold a New York City duplex for US$10.6 million and has listed her West Village live-work studio. Additionally, she still owns an equestrian property in New York’s Hudson Valley and currently serves as IKEA’s first Artist in Residence.
