Enjoy supreme privacy while maintaining convenience to local offerings from the five quaint nearby towns, the Pacific Ocean, Santa Barbara and Los Angeles.
This estate offers an 8,900-square foot main residence with 1,700 square feet of covered porches, a 3,000-square foot second residence, manager’s quarters, horse pastures, numerous out buildings, small vineyard, olive grove and green fields of orchard grass. The mainly flat acreage allows a variety of uses to be imagined, including larger vineyards, orchards, equestrian activities, trap shooting, tennis, a polo field and other activities you might enjoy! The picturesque landscape includes a variety of mature trees, wild flowers, a 1920's vintage windmill and a chef's garden. The ranch's three wells provide outstanding water resources, with the agricultural well producing over 1,000 gallons of water per minute, enough to provide water for just about any activities you might consider. Designed by local Santa Barbara architect Tom Meany, this 24-room estate was completed in 2011 and offers the epitome of superior craftsmanship.
The main residence features 3-bedrooms (plus several other rooms that could serve as bedrooms) and 6-bathrooms. The expansive, elegant living and entertaining environs are functional and refined, complemented by a casual country influence. A tasteful mix of architectural elements and high-end features grace the immaculate interior, from rich quarter-sawn oak floors to authentic reclaimed brick, dramatic coffered and open beam ceilings, extensive wainscoting, custom built-ins, charming fireplaces, top-of-the-line appliances/fixtures/materials, and state-of-the-art entertainment, power, and environmental systems. Among the many other alluring highlights is the chef's kitchen, the walnut-paneled library, his and hers offices, two laundry rooms, a game room, a movie theater and a wine cellar. The house is surrounded by immaculate mature landscaping and breathtaking views, all of which can be enjoyed from the extensive covered porches surrounding the main floor.
