Why Carol Ann Herrera chose Santa Ynez
Incredible panoramic views of Santa Ynez Mountains due to terraced open location, adjacent to 3,000 acre agricultural preserve. Ranch property is all level and well drained land. The most desirable features are matures trees and the location at the end of a private road.
What makes this house unique
The sense of privacy while at the same time seeing incredible mountain views was the perfect setting to create lush, protected, bird friendly garden areas surrounding the main ranch house. The barn and pasture areas being completely separate from the main house with separate driveways is ideal to maintain tranquility, silence and a sense of 'home away from home'.
Guestbook comments from the owner
My husband and I enjoyed a full week stay with my parents. This home has wheelchair access everywhere which really enhanced my father's enjoyment. What was so remarkable was the views from each room and the tropical lush garden surrounding the house. We walked the 2 mile loop of rural private roads right outside our front door every morning.
Would love to be able to come back during the holidays and enjoy the great wood burning fireplace.
