Preface / This is the mountain-surround retreat you've been dreaming about and looking for. There are no over-the-top ostentatious structures or costly facilities to maintain that often make the cost of owning and operating a secondary (or primary) getaway ranch residence prohibitive over the long run. 

The cottage is not exactly a mountain man cabin, though it sort of has that look and feel, but is both (1) A manly, isolated, quiet, mountain-surround man cave and (2) A modern, comfortable, luxurious, cozy, feminine cabin with every convenience expected by the lady of the house.

Mountain-side hideaway retreats imply communing with nature. Though the Banning Ranch Estate is fully fenced, all ninety-two acres, wildlife abounds and often share estate grounds with livestock, horses, dogs and, oh, yes, people alike.

I invite you now, prior to reading further, to view the (1) Welcome Home Video and the (2) Lot, Land and Acreage Photo Array of this mountain-surround property by selecting the links on the sidebar at left, presentations you're sure to enjoy.

The Community / Banning is a city in Riverside County, California. The population was 29,603 as of the 2010 census. It is situated in the San Gorgonio Pass, also known as Banning Pass. It is named for Phineas Banning, stagecoach line owner and the Father of the Port of Los Angeles.

Banning's western neighbor is the city of Beaumont. Banning and Beaumont have been rapidly growing in size and population since the 1990s. Both cities are about 80 miles east of downtown Los Angeles and 30 miles west of Palm Springs, each connected by freeway and railroad.

Banning has its own police force and contracts for fire and paramedic services with the Riverside County Fire Department through a cooperative agreement with Cal Fire (California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection). The city is served by both the Banning Unified School District and Beaumont Unified School District.

San Gorgonio Memorial Hospital is a General Acute Care Hospital in Banning with basic emergency services since 2005.

In the California State Legislature, Banning is in the 23rd Senate District, represented by Republican Mike Morrell, and in the 42nd Assembly District, represented by Republican Chad Mayes; in the United States House of Representatives, Banning is in California's 36th Congressional District, represented by Democrat Raul Ruiz.

The Banning Ranch Estate

The Banning Ranch Estate is comprised of two contiguous parcels totaling 92.62 acres of level mountainside land atop a low lying mesa with spectacular mountain views in all directions. Approximately 75% of the land is usable. Land locked to this parcel is an additional fifteen acres of federal forested land accessible for riding; it is said that a land use permit is available, but this is not guaranteed by broker or seller.

Adjacent the San Bernardino National Forest, there are innumerable trails to hike, bike or explore by horseback.

The main residence is approximately 1,779 square feet in size and has two bedrooms, two full baths, a grand room styled open floor plan and an attached oversized two car garage. Kitchen, baths and amenities are modern, stylish and in extraordinarily fine condition. A fireplace and breakfast bar highlight the great room and kitchen.

Other ranch amenities include two barns, horse pads, a 100’ round pen, a 50’ bull pen, and stable with 21 stalls. One 2500 square foot barn features a full sized, three bedroom apartment for guests, a grounds keeper or trainer. The entire ranch is fenced with a 6’ chain link fence. More than a hundred mature fruit trees line part of the fence line. Wild oat, alfalfa and wheat can be found in the 60+ acres of pasture for horses, cattle or other types of livestock.

The ranch is located approximately six miles from Interstate-10 and one hour from Ontario Airport; and at approximately 3,500’ elevation there is virtually no smog.

Success Stories / This customized website, images, story, and brochure are representative of the style and quality of online marketing we at Real Estate Professionals World Enterprise Marketing create for every property we list and sell. Some information has been removed or changed to protect the privacy of Marketing Partners and Principals.

Plain Talk / Care is taken to ensure size and dimension of the site itself is compact and structured for ease of use across multiple platforms (1) Phones (2) Tablets and (3) Computers. This is largely ignored today. Even greater care is taken to avoid overselling or puffing, as it's called under law, that represents more than exists or can be delivered because the first, overselling, provides too much information and reduces previews and the second, puffing, leads to letdown and reduced sales. In advertising both The Truth Works Best and Less is More are guiding principles of paramount importance to success (1) Curiosity stimulates inquiry (2) Fulfillment reduces it.

Sometimes in Real Estate Close is Not Good Enough / When market conditions are such that selling is not a challenge because of the economic climate or because of supply-and-demand relative to some region or locale, high-level professional marketing is not something people think a lot about: half-measures are adequate to the job. On the other hand, when the wheel turns and you find unexpectedly that selling is a challenge, a weak line of action will not suffice.

Who decides or can decide or even knows what factors will lead to success become the issues of the day. Clearly a broker with a great deal of high-level professional experience specific to the task at hand would be a good bet: one whose work and experience spans many decades and whose work and programs have done it hundreds of times, better yet, thousands of times for both home owners and new-development builders alike. That experience - Found Here - will guide every move and underscore the strategies, tactics and actions of a fast-sale marketing campaign.
