Los Olivos farmhouse description

Demeter Ranch is a spectacular property with an abundance of amenities. Just a short distance to downtown Los Olivos, local grocery stores (Los Olivos grocery), and wineries (Roblar and Beckman are 5 minute walks away!). We gave this ranch the name Demeter for the Greek Goddess of the Harvest. While on the property we hope you enjoy our vegetable garden and consider a romantic wine country dinner in the backyard with a bbq and a glass of this valley’s finest.

Situated on 4+ acres with 4 bedrooms, two of which are master suites (perfect for two couples), and a massive gourmet kitchen. That's right, try to find a quiet place close to town with two master suites that is perfect for two couples!

          Location

          Car: Necessary

          Tourists often visit the valley for its attractions including numerous art galleries, wine tasting rooms, and the quaint antique stores. Los olivos, a short 3 minute drive away, is home to 40 wine tasting rooms showcasing the valley's finest. You will also find that we have good weather year round; you can participate in outdoor activities such as hiking in the los padres national forest or bicycling throughout the valley. The valley is also know to be home to over 50 breeds of horses making it an equine destination.

           

          Owner info

          About the owner: I am a triathlete who loves the challenge of mountain and valley rides that some of the world's famous cyclists train. In addition, my wife and i love to cook and learn about the art of wine making. In our kitchen we have a little tradition. When we have dinner parties, everyone signs the first cork of the evening and puts it in the vase.

          Why the Owner Chose Los Olivos:
          If you are like us, you will know the answer when you walk through the front door. Captivating views as you approach demeter ranch then when you walk in the front door you feel like a comforted welcomed friend. A very important aspect of this property for us was its location. Literally, 1-1/2 miles to the center of los olivos, close to some of our favorite vineyards, and favorite restaurants.

          The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
          Ranch-style property with double private master suites. Walking, yes that's true ... Walking distance to roblar winery and beckmen vineyards. Oh and the lavender farm is just down the road.
