My Notes

Santa Ynez Valley is a bucolic, rural upscale community a short drive from Santa Barbara, California. The valley is a composite of world class vineyards, horse farms, cattle ranches and ranchettes. It is the second largest wine growing region in California. Local residents include many entertainment notables and senior executive members of all types of industry and commerce. The area abounds with fabulous cycling roads, hiking trails, restaurants and a quality lifestyle rarely found today.The Property:A 5 +/- acre horse ranch in the enclave environment of Meadowlark Ranches with a post and beam home, a horse barn, an arena and several pastures. The land is flat and totally usable. Meadowlark has their own private and very reasonable water sources and offers riding trails throughout. The proximity to the Santa Ynez River offers a wonderful micro-climate with slightly more moderate temperatures than the other parts of the Valley. Home:A dramatic 14’+/- peaked ceiling great room with fireplace anchors the central part of the 2 bedroom 2.5 bath home. Off the great room and kitchen is a large outdoor living/ entertaining patio which overlooks the riding arena and views to the Figueroa Mountains and the expansive pastures of the neighboring ranch. The Master Bedroom also has a vaulted ceiling and a remodeled bathroom. Room to expand the house and / or add a guest house (*with SB County Permits).Equestrian Facilities:6-stall center aisle barn with tack room and wash rack (with hot and cold water). 1 stall is larger for a mare/foal enclosure. The Barn is wood beamed framed with T&G wood in the ceiling.Riding Arena (120 x 180 +/-) with fairly newly installed washed concrete sand footing and irrigation.Front pasture has a “bank-jump” featureA large turnout shelter has been designed to shelter horses in the uniquely designed pasture set up which can convert from either 2 large pastures all the way to 9 separate areas.
