Our Project

Red Apple Ranch is located east of Murphys, CA, in the Sierra foothills. Positioned at 3,200 feet, just below the snow line, the site affords us an extremely diverse ecology and what would be considered near-perfect four season weather.

Red Apple Ranch, when completed, will be a community of 75 site-designed custom homes. Each home is on a minimum of one acre, most with panoramic views of forested canyons, mountains and big sky.

The 140 acres that comprise Red Apple Ranch has been the historic homestead of the Darby family for over 100 years. The site boasts one of the state’s oldest roadside apple stands and has supported an impressive variety of apple trees on about 15 acres. The rest of the property has remained relatively pristine supporting local wildlife and indigenous trees and plants. The site is bordered by the Stanislaus National Forest or lands that will remain open and wild.

The project is being developed by Red Apple Ranch Development Co. LLC and the homes are designed and constructed by Nova Designs + Builds, San Francisco’s pre-eminent design-build company.
