Moorpark farmhouse description

Our private 3000 Sq Foot Ranch House is located on our 40-acre working farm and equestrian event center. Located in the foothills of Ventura County. We are a family run, working ranch secluded in a small valley between the town of Moorpark and the community of Somis. Go to our website for Tons of Photos. You can Google Meadows of Moorpark or use the Link Below.

People are amazed at our island of paradise, located only 40 minutes from Los Angeles and 30 minutes to great pacific surfing spots of the 'Rincon.'

We are a horse center and working avocado ranch. Our Ranch is for someone who wants to get away from the city, but close enough to visit. Don't be fooled by other mini-ranches, they often are nothing more than a guest house in a 1-acre rural neighborhood. The Ranch house is the real deal. Our privacy and real orginal homestead environment is our gem.

Feel free to come visit our family and ranch any time and check out the farm before hand.

The words, 'room and space' are defined at the Meadows. Our Dad designed it 32 years ago for our large family. It can be yours and 13 of your best friends in the four giant, private bedrooms.

The Ranch House represents 'California Style' and has been used in the filming of commercials and movies. Some stay on our private ranch to avoid the Paparazzi.

The ammenities are almost endless and the porch-laundry room is bigger than most kitchens. People tell us that they like to visit the ranch house for an 'off the map' rural retreat. The large 30X30 “Great Room” is the centerpiece of the house and you get that cozy 1800's ranch feeling while sitting by the massive fireplace and watching the wildlife.

Many people rent the ranch for quiet family get togethers, horse events or even romantic get-aways. Why rent 4 hotel rooms for the reunion?

Our house sleeps 14 in a variety of bed sizes and is located at the end of a tree lined private driveway-entrance. We even have a 16 person bunkhouse and detached cottage that sleeps two. We designed our restaurant-size kitchen before it was vogue. There are 3 bathrooms, numerous nooks , and perfect reading areas.

Wi-Fi in the whole house, Satellite Television, DVD and outdoor movie area.

Step out side and see our 100 year-old ranching implements and barns. We are a working ranch and do have activities occurring, tractoring, orchards and farm work in our adjoining canyons.

Take a walk up the hiking trails to the pond and picnic areas. We have a real working Santa Maria Barbecue that can cook for 75. We have outdoor heaters and campfire areas for year-round enjoyment. Do you like to see the stars at night. Make smores at our campfire center is only 30 feet from the ranch house and is the #1 favorite of guests. You will enjoy watching the Milky Way and shooting stars almost nightly.

We have a giant pool and outdoor spa that across the meadow about 250 yards away.

Romance and Ranch House both start with an 'R'. There is a reason, the Meadows Ranch House is the epitomy of a peacful ambiance.

Note: Out of common sense and respect for our adjoinng farms, we do not host weddings, large parties with live bands etc.. We can hook you up with nearby wedding areas approved.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1977

                      About the owner: Raised on our ranch. We are a farming and horse family and live and work on the ranch. Our houses are on the other side of the ranch, 1/2 mile away, close enough to make sure your needs are met and still allowing total privacy. We have many farming activites going on, and when possible, always offer up a chance for guests to jump in. A slice of rural California just 45 minutes to Los Angeles, 10 minutes to Moorpark and Camarillo Wedding areas. 20 minutes to Thousand Oaks, Simi Valley and Ventura.

                      Why the Owner Chose Moorpark:
                      We bought the ranch over 34 years ago. It is the Oliver 1890 homestead and the Oliver's taught us how to farm. We loved the seclusion of our 'Long Canyon' and have great ranching and farming neighbors.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                      Relaxation, privacy, nature, space and quiet, with the ocean and cities just 10-20 minutes away.
