This uniquely situated Ocean View Ranch offers a once in a lifetime opportunity for Santa Barbara home buyers. With more than 110 acres of magnificent gardens and horseback riding trails, this marvel on a mountain is a self-sustainable beauty.
Ten thousand avocado and citrus trees line the property, offering seasonal fruits and beautiful blossoms. Described as a fairy tale landscape by Terry Ryken of Compass Montecito, the lush gardens will transport you into another world. Immersing yourself in the landscape gives the feeling of seclusion and tranquility on this vast property.
“It‘s beautiful to see the avocados and the lemons, especially with the smell of the citrus when you enter the meandering roads. I really do love the gardens. The homeowners created something that is so magical and so stunning that you don’t normally see in a property like this,” says Ryken.
Three separate homes are positioned on the property. The grandiose main house sits at the top of the hill, with a spacious three-car garage and secluded guest suite. The Gate House sits below, accommodating guests with two master suites, and offers a consistent rental opportunity from weekend vacationers. The Creek House boasts a professional gym with two bedrooms and one bathroom.
Everything one would need is at your fingertips in this self-sustaining estate. Rich, fertile soil affords for the freshest, most succulent fruits and vegetables. The fully-equipped elegant gourmet kitchen boasts floor to ceiling cabinetry, double ovens and a tremendous center island. A breakfast nook anchors the semi-circular space adjacent to the kitchen, yielding 180 degrees of mountain views.
“Near the house you can find many different fruit trees, a vegetable garden and even a fragrant herb garden. Everything is right near the house so you can cut it fresh and cook right from the garden. It not only looks gorgeous, but you have everything you want fresh every day. This is a really special treat that the homeowners created,” Ryken explains.
