Year Purchased: 1991
About the owner: Carol Herrera, longtime Santa Ynez Valley resident, is the owner and manager of Vista Verde Ranch. I am involved in local community organizations and an avid horse enthusiast. My passion is organic gardening. I love caring for my 5 year old grandson in Sonoma County.
Why the Owner Chose Santa Ynez:
The ranch property purchased in 1991 was chosen for its incredible views and being contiguous to a 3,000 agricultural preserve. The main house of this pristine horse ranch is completely separate from the horse facility, barn and lavender cottage with a private driveway and parking area. Guests are in their own little world surrounded by an incredible garden. The property is located at the end of a private road providing a quiet scenic environment. The location of the main house is on a bluff allowing for fantastic views of the Santa Ynez Mountains and the fields of the agricultural preserve. The home is a frequent meeting place for the family, reunions, events, community meetings and does not feel or look like a rental home. The mature, verdant garden setting sets this property apart from others. It brings an amazing number of birds, butterflies, quail, bush bunnies and owls. In spite of the rural private setting, you are six minutes to the local market, four minutes to great restaurants and three minutes to the Gainey Winery.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The privacy and of this location creates an environment of relaxation and contemplation of the magnificent views whether from the back porch or the front porch or from the large valley oak garden. It is ideal for guests vacationing with their well behaved dogs. The area fenced for dogs provides a large landscaped yard for your pet to exercise and explore. Terrain is all flat with no inclines or stairs.
