While most Farm & Ranch properties share defining categorical features, architectural style is something that can group homes into their own subset. In our first installment of Farm & Ranch, let’s take a look at the sleek, striking and modern spaces that have come to redefine the rural, Farm & Ranch lifestyle.
Steeped in history, this spectacular ranch was once owned by the Wrigley family and later by members of the Hills Brothers Coffee family.
