Billionaire superlawyer David Boies, who has represented Al Gore, Harvey Weinstein, and some of Jeffrey Epstein’s victims, has listed his California ranch for $23 million.
Diamond B, as the property is known, contains five houses and extensive vineyards.
Located off the major wine corridor Highway 29 in the Lower Lake area, and two hours from San Francisco, the ranch spans about 1,183 acres and includes four lakes and a pool.
“It offers the ability to create an entirely off-the-grid, organic ecosystem employing the closed system biodynamic philosophy, and a rare opportunity to live safely and independently away from it all,” estate agent Red Oak Realty said in the listing.
The owners can “easily” operate the ranch, vineyard, and equestrian facilities commercially, it added, and there are potential locations to add a helicopter landing pad.
Boies is one of this generation’s best known lawyers. He represented Al Gore in the 2000 Bush v. Gore case, led the federal government’s antitrust case against Microsoft, and has fought for same-sex marriage rights. But he’s also represented some controversial clients, including Harvey Weinstein.
An investigation this year by Insider spoke to more than 50 people about a massive shakeup at his elite law firm Boies Schiller that saw more than 30 members of staff leave the company.
Their investigation uncovered pay rifts, a partner divide, and a threat at the Ritz Carlton.
… including five houses.
The main property is a traditional three-story log cabin.
The interior is spacious …
… and it has five bedrooms and five bathrooms.
Between the five properties, the ranch has 12 bedrooms.
Across the main property and four additional ranch homes, there is plenty of space to host and entertain guests.
The properties have stunning views across the ranch, too.
The property is dominated by 18 acres of vineyards, and has permission to extend this to 58.
The ranch currently is home to 15 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon, and one each of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Sirah.
The site also includes an equestrian center with both indoor and outdoor riding facilities.
The property has a covered 14-stall, cedar-lined mare barn and a covered indoor arena with stadium seating.
The site offers “everything a horse lover needs, plus the opportunity to host equestrian events and horse breeding operations,” Red Oak Realty said in the listing.
As well as horses, there’s plenty of space for cattle. The ranch currently has more than 30 Highland cattle.
The property and its surrounding area is also full of wild turkey, boar, quail, vultures, hawks, deer, coyote, and mountain lions and bears, Red Oak Realty says.
The property also includes four lakes.
These are well stocked with catfish, black bass, minnows, and red ear sunfish, according to Red Oak Realty.
