Property description

As you turn and exit from the Foxen Canyon Wine Trail, enter through the stone and hand forged wrought iron gates and discover Old California at its finest, 36-plus magical acres of tranquility. A winding country lane shaded by stately olive trees hints of the seclusion beyond. The estate vineyard on the right provides for some of the finest Santa Ynez Valley wines.

The ranch’s Barn and friendly cow Ferdie were recently featured in December 2012 Santa Barbara Magazine. The Guest House Suite and Guest Cottage are located adjacent to the Barn. Also, for more photos of the property, here is a link to a photo blog featuring the our recent ranch wreath party

This 2 bedroom, 2 bath California ranch Guest House Suite provides a wide, shaded front porch to relax and capture the views of rolling hills, mature oak trees, green pastures, a multi-fruit orchard, colorful blue Lilly of the Nile and antique irises, and expanses of vineyards. Your senses will be aroused by the scents of lavender and rose and the chatter of wildlife including hawks and owls. The Guest House Suite itself is Western in design includes original Board and Batten exterior, hand hewn carpentry, attention to detail and superb Artisan finishes throughout with all the modern amenities.

This property is ideally located for a tranquil getaway, adventure seeking cyclists and/or wine tasting excursions. The ranch is, also, ideal for families of all ages. Adjacent to the Guest House Suite, a comfortable Guest Cottage Studio for friends, extended family, or a nanny is available. This very private, one room, one bath (shower) Guest Cottage Studio is equipped with a full kitchen and may accommodate one or two persons.

Rancho Foxen Canyon is a family ranch that includes horses, cows, dogs, cats, goats, geese and chickens. For a little adventure, there are many areas of the ranch to relax and enjoy, take a walk along the private country pathways and visit the vineyard, the summer garden, the multi-fruit orchard, the barn, the rose garden along the Alamo Pintado creek bed, the chicken house and animal pastures.

Rancho Foxen Canyon is a 5 minute drive to town of Los Olivos or a 25 minute brisk walk, a 10 minute drive to the town of Santa Ynez, and a 15 minute drive to Solvang.
