This stunning 8.23 acre heritage property is one of the rare places that can encapsulate and define Santa Ynez Valley living. Perched atop a private hillside at the western edge of the Valley with expansive 360 degree views that include the rolling rural hills of Ballard Canyon. As you enter on a private drive the pepper tree-lined entrance is a fitting welcome to this 3,750+/- sqft, 4 bed, 4 bath ranch-style home built by one of the Valleys early and prominent builders Cliff Solem. The home epitomizes Cliffs approach which helped shape the regions architectural style: rustic wood floors, vaulted open-beam ceilings, multiple fireplaces and accessibility to and emphasis on outdoor-living. A central courtyard, decks located off the bedrooms, and large shaded patios all add to the homes livable space. Outside a park-like setting awaits with over 50 mature trees studding the property and offering protection and tranquility. The pool and spa are strategically shielded by the main house from prevailing winds and flanked by a barn and large bonus room. The 1,676 sqft barn/bonus room structure offers endless possibilities, including an opportunity for a guesthouse conversion. Surrounding the property are three smaller pastures and one large pasture for horses and farm animals. The expansive vistas reaffirm a time capsule landscape of grazing animals and farms.
