Hupomone Ranch is located on the land of a 160 acres farm, located in Chileno Valley, just three miles west of downtown Petaluma, California. The ranch has been uncultivated for more than 30 years, and the new owners, a young family with three children wanted to build a modern barn-house that would reflect their commitment to sustainable agriculture.

Built in the middle of the nature, in a very quiet area, the house fits perfectly into the specific of the region, western Petaluma is traditionally dedicated to agriculture and farming. The house is situated with its back to the north and the front side is open to the sun and nature, offering views towards the meadow and nearby hills.
