The Hacienda at Rancho Encantado
Rancho Encantado is a very special opportunity to own a 122 acre working ranch surrounded by thousands of acres of pristine ranch land in the Santa Ynez Valley. The Mission Style hacienda compound overlooks the Santa Ynez River and two mountain ranges. The views are breathtaking and can be enjoyed from multiple verandas and an exterior cabana with complete kitchen, outdoor fireplace, pool and dining area.
The main residence has the old world charm of a 19th century rancho and was designed and crafted with lovely attention to detail. Massive native stone fireplaces, Honduran mahogany windows and doors and impressive beamed ceilings give the sense of a hundred year old hacienda with new world amenities. The stunning gourmet kitchen is the hallmark of the home and offers multiple granite counters, state-of-the-art appliances and beautiful cabinetry. Lovely wood floors highlight the family/game room and office and the large scale of each room is complimented with professionally designed furnishings that are included with the purchase.
In addition, Rancho Encantado offers the tax advantages of a producing walnut orchard in the Williamson Act and a gorgeous highly usable parcel suitable for all aspects of agrarian pursuits. With the removal of the walnut trees, this gentle and open parcel would be ideal for growning many varietals of grapes. With river frontage, beautiful ponds and water features would be a natural accent to the property. Adjacent parcels are being used for cattle ranching, vineyards and world-class equine facilities. The diversity of the area plus river water frontage make this a rare opportunity in a highly desireable location.
