Roebbelen Estate in El Dorado Hills, including 500-plus acres, for sale

From a 9,804-square-foot home to a helipad and nine-hole putting green, there’s a lot to unpack in a new listing for sale in El Dorado Hills.

Known as the Roebbelen Estate, the 591-acre property with development potential is being listed unpriced by Ken Noack Jr. of Newmark and Hilary Devine of Lyon & Associates.

“Wow,” Noack said. “It’s probably one of the most unique assets I’ve ever had the privilege to work on.”

Owned and developed by the Roebbelen family behind El Dorado Hills-based Roebbelen Contracting Inc., the property could be sold to one or a number of buyers for all the components it includes.

The main house at 2155 Salmon Valley Lane is on one of nine contiguous southern parcels that make up 241 acres combined. Described in the offering memorandum as a 50-year family legacy, that 9,804-square-foot home has three full living quarters within its walls, including four kitchens, 10 bathrooms, six bedrooms, three laundry rooms, a 2,400-square-foot temperature-controlled wine cellar and a 760-square-foot attached, two-car garage with Tesla charging capability.

Around the home are features that include a 2,373-square-foot greenhouse with a changing room, two-car garage with 500-square-foot carport, boat storage building, hangars for airplanes and a helicopter and a 2,070-square-foot pool house and entertainment center with an interior kitchen and locker rooms.

Other features around the compound include a lap pool/jacuzzi spa/wading area, fenced vegetable garden, nine-hole putting green and a 567-square-foot covered stage/wedding venue overlooking a canyon. A helipad and unused air strip are also on the southern portion.

On the northern portion of the property are three undeveloped parcels, totaling nearly 361 acres of foothill topography.

Noack said those parcels could attract interest from buyers who want to develop to the existing zoning of one home per 10 acres. Though someone could try to get zoning for a more intense development, he said, doing so would be out of character with that part of El Dorado Hills.

“Because of the topography and the views, you’ve got lakeside views and an opportunity that’s really unparalleled,” he said.

For someone who wanted to live at the compound, the ability for air travel means a Silicon Valley executive could live there and fly to work, he said. A family could also purchase the property to keep the main house and develop smaller ones around it for other family members.

The couple who live there now, the second generation to run the company, has decided to sell to be closer to family who’ve relocated to Henderson, Nevada, Noack said.

“They wanted to be closer to family because that’s what’s important to them,” he said.

There’s no listing price because the market for such a property is too wide and the property too complex to put a number to, he said, adding the marketing effort will be global in reach.
