This is a newer Mediterranean Style guest house extension. It is located on five acres, one mile from the little village of Santa Ynez-a nice walk to the local coffee shops and restaurants. You will pass horse ranches and an Alpaca ranch. It is totally private with it's own driveway and entrance. A peaceful retreat with beautiful views and a seasonal stream at the bottom of the property, but with many activities nearby.
Our neighbors in Santa Ynez have: wine tasting and winery tours, at the over 70 local wineries. These include Firestone, Fess Parker, Gainey, Sunstone etc.
Also found are the Miniature horse, Alpaca and Ostrich Ranches, and the Chumash Casino. There are also the Vintage Motorcycle and Elverhoy Museums, the Maverick Saloon, and several famous horse ranches with Andalusians, Arabs, Thoroughbreds, Peruvian Pasos and many more. Monty Robert's famous 'join up' program is only 15 minutes away. Great cycling trails, used for training by Lance Armstrong.
Wonderful tranquil location - close to SY: We are located on a private partly unpaved road, only 1 mile from the village of Santa Ynez, with very little road traffic.
A safe and quiet area of horse ranches and an alpaca ranch on the road to the town.
There is lots of off road parking on the property, private separate entry gates and driveway, and an outside patio and gas barbecue
Santa Ynez boasts great restaurants, a coffee shop, a historical museum, post office, bank, gas station, pharmacy, florist, wine tasting rooms, an art gallery, a cycling shop for rentals and tours, and even a tiny library!
We are a retired couple who have travelled extensively and love the Santa Ynez valley and the friendly people here.
The property is in a quiet safe area but quite close to small town with all it's facilities, great restaurants, post office, historical western museum, great golf courses, many horse ranches, gyms, and many more attractions.
