                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1896

                  About the owner: I grew up here on this ranch with my 5 sisters and 2 brothers. I am granddaughter to Ramon Mateo Saralegui from Spain, who originally homesteaded this Ranch in 1886. He met my grandmother Dolores also from Spain, here in Santa Barbara and they were married.Together they had two children. My father Bernard and his sister Anne. My dad was a very hard working man. He met and married my mother Maxine in 1946. He was a Rancher and built the main Ranch house while working full time at the Gas Co. My mother Maxine was a homemaker and designer of the Ranch house that my dad built... As children we spent a lot of time outdoors, especially in the creek and at our Refugio Beach in the summertime...What fun! I currently live here in the Ranch house where we have had most of our family gatherings throughout the years.

                  Why the Owner Chose Goleta:
                  I own this property because it was passed down to me. We have owned it since the 1800's and I have the honor of being the caretaker of this unique piece of heaven on earth...

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Not only do I love my home and this property because I grew up here and have so many memories but it's really the perfect location. If you want quiet relaxation it's as good as it gets. It's only a short distance to some of the most beautiful beaches in Southern California. If you want to go horseback riding or a dinner show it's only 5 minutes away. In 20-30 minutes you can go to Santa Barbara where you can find any number of activities. You can also go North to the Santa Ynez Valley where there is a nice variety of eatery's and winery's to visit or see a movie...
