A couple hundred years ago the Spanish picked this area because it was a day’s horse ride from either the ocean or from the Santa Ynez or La Purisma Missions. They also noted that the region had some of the richest growing soils, beautiful coastal hills and temperate climate due to the cooling ocean influences….
Because of these unique growing conditions, Santa Rita Hills became one of the regions first Federally recognize vineyard growing appellations (AVA).
This property is centrally located in this magical area and has close proximity to Ampelos, Seasmoke, Dierberg, Foley, Pierre Lafond, Casa Cassera, Melville and Babcock wine producers. It features a 3 bedroom hacienda style home, a farm style garage / barn with an upstairs area, and two additional homes!
Currently the owners are growing on their 45 +/- acres a fruit orchard, where they sell fruit through several of the farmers markets, and they lease 30+/- acres of this rich farm land to a farmer for growing seasonal row crops. A future owner, obviously, can do whatever they may wish with the land. There is potential to further develop out the AG portion to possible vineyard or other uses, or a new owner could use the land for an equestrian facility.
The main home, (1 of 3 homes on the property) has three bedrooms, a beautiful beamed ceiling living room and, as this first photo shows, it overlooks the AG field ~ The home also features an outdoor entertainment patio, that commands views of farmland, Santa Rita Hills and neighboring vineyards. Stairs lead to lower deck, surrounded by lavender and meandering stone walkways through “California” landscaping.

Classic farm style barn with possibilities for car storage or shop, all located in the central courtyard of the main house and guest house. A stairway accesses a large upstairs area.

Rosa Creek which offers a protected habitat on the property.
Owners derive yearly income from the property from renting the AG land and the other houses.
