Santa Maria chateau / country house description

Alamo Creek Ranch – private and secluded - Magnificent 240 acre Vineyard Ranch Estate with brand new home located 12 miles east of Santa Maria on the border between Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties.

You will likely drive through 3 or 4 creek crossings of gravel road on your journey to one of the loveliest spots in this magnificent region of California. Turn back the hands of time to the old west ... take a deep breath and say goodbye to all the stress and worries.

Architecturally inspired by a historic Australian original homestead called Elizabeth Farm, this approx. 4000 sq ft residence carries an elegant yet simple design, accented with rough-hewn beams and support posts and wide verandahs. Spacious rooms take maximum advantage of the gorgeous views. The finest features and finishes grace the home, including smooth marble flooring throughout, recessed ceilings with indirect lighting, Viking appliances including full-vent Viking range, Sub-zero refrigerator, and two stack stone fireplaces. French doors all around open to the surrounding verandahs, and to the sunlit pool and pool-side patio, dining gazebo, and BBQ, surrounded by professional landscaping.

This gorgeous piece of unspoiled wilderness is private, secluded, and well protected -- acres and acres of gorgeous rural land with open rolling meadows, wooded valleys, underground springs, magnificent blue oaks as well as live oak, sycamores, and willows, annual grassland and valley foothill riparian, and a wide array of wildlife; black tail deer, tule elk, quail, bobcats, wild turkey, owls, hawks, wild pigs, quail and dove. The acreage is ideal for hiking, horse-back riding, amazing birdwatching and camping, and can provide awesome inspiration for artists and photographers. There is nothing else like Alamo Creek Ranch ~ It truly is, a world away!

The Ranch also has a very rustic two bedroom two bath guest house, a classic-styled barn with workshop, and 38 acres of vineyards.
