3050 Via Rancheros is a remarkable 71+/- acre ranch estate in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley, featuring an extensively renovated Main Residence, 2 additional Houses, 4 Apartments, 4 Barns, riding arena, round pen, 25 acres of pastures, 2 stocked ponds, and the ultimate in privacy and security. Located gracefully along the Santa Ynez River and nestled at the foot of the Santa Ynez Mountain range, this ranch offers an in-town private nature sanctuary that feels light years away yet is just minutes from all the best restaurants, shops, and wineries. For horse owners, the ranch is minutes from the renowned Alamo Pintado veterinary clinic. For those desiring their own vineyard, the area is home to world class vineyard consultants and creators, as well as winemakers.... Set privately away from the farm operation is the estate's sprawling 8500 sf main residence which recently underwent an extensive renovation in 2020. The home has an elegant Spanish hacienda style and features luxurious and spacious rooms, 5 en-suite bedrooms including walk-in closets in all interior rooms, hand-hewn quarter sawn French oak floors, and five fireplaces. The kitchen is enclosed and private with classic yet festive Spanish color palette, stone countertops, and custom oak cabinetry throughout. The home is surrounded by professionally designed gardens, mature specimen trees, and extensive entertaining areas including a 14' covered patios with built-in sound, heaters, a luxurious pool, gas lit wood burning fire pit, deer fenced orchard, vegetable gardens, and "secret" shaded seating area to take in the river atmosphere. Starlink high speed internet is throughout all buildings and the property is served by 39 kWh solar array (produced over 57mWh in 2022).
This remarkable property is also set up to accommodate a variety of equestrian disciplines. There are multiple residences for welcoming family and friends and to have on-site staff, trainers, and managers.
With over a 1/2 mile of river frontage, this property is a nature lover's paradise: Hiking, nature walks (including on your own land in the riverbed), riding trails, and natural swimming holes are at your doorstep. Take in nature's beauty while in complete privacy that is rare even in many large ranches. Beaches and mountains are only a short drive and access to Santa Barbara, Los Angeles or the Bay area is convenient. A truly spectacular ranch that cannot be duplicated.
