A scant 2 hours north of Los Angeles one is enveloped in a landscape of vineyards, horse ranches, farms and schoolhouses.  You have traveled back in time where simple pleasures, open spaces, mossy oaks, grassy fields, seas of blue lupine, bright orange poppies and warm sunny days are found.  It seems impossible that such a place still exists in 21st Century California.  The Santa Ynez Valley has become the best kept secret of the celebrity crowd.  All who are fortunate enough to live here closely guard its quiet serenity.
Situated in the prestigious Meadowlark Ranch is one of the Valley’s finest 5 acre estates, Skyland Ranch. This stunning, immaculately maintained equestrian property is accessed by a single private road that winds past vineyards, grazing land, and gorgeous ranches against the panorama of the Santa Ynez Mountains.  Impeccably maintained, gated and perimeter fenced with 3 rail and wire, the property is part of the Meadowlark Homeowner’s Association with water service provided by private and low cost wells.
Custom iron gates lead to lush, pristine grounds surrounding a 4 bedroom, 3½ bath estate home.  Enter to cathedral ceilings, white oak floors, lofty windows and an open floor plan.  The living accommodations feature a luxuriant Master suite with fireplace and walk in closet plus 3 additional bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.  Entertain with ease in the gourmet kitchen, formal dining room and family room with French doors opening out to an envious entertaining area complete with a salt water pool, spa, and gazebo.
Stroll down the alee of pepper trees past a professionally designed and irrigated vegetable garden, 5 paddocks with Fibar footing, 5 lush irrigated pastures, a round pen and the 30,000 square foot arena. Arrive at the immaculately kept, newly built barn complete with turnouts, wash rack (with hot & cold water), hay room, tack room and spacious guest quarters with full bath and kitchen. Leisurely relax on the outside barn patio while observing activity in the arena or round pen, or watching the sun go down behind the splendid mountain backdrop.

Skyland Ranch offers the ranch and country lifestyle many seek amidst great natural beauty. With unparalleled attention to detail, the owners have created a very special ambiance and compound that will satisfy even the most discriminating equestrian.

Truly a one-of-a-kind estate and private enclave!
