About the owner: Hi, My name is Karen, I am the property manager. My husband Kevin and I are both pilots, who enjoy traveling and meeting new people. We have numerous life time memories of living in the Ernie Ball ranch house. As a former owner of the ranch, I can assure you that you too, will never forget the memories you make in this lovely home.
Why the Owner Chose San Luis Obispo, CA, USA:
If you are seeking peace and quiet, you just found it! Nestled in the midst of wine country, with only a short drive to downtown SLO. It is our hope that you would enjoy a truly exclusive opportunity to visit the Central Coast.
The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
I love driving through the vineyard, onto the open cattle range. Sometimes you see adorable calves roaming about, other times it may be deer wandering through. There is a creek that winds in between large, beautiful sycamore and oak trees. With wandering limbs; some down to the ground, these trees make a beautiful backdrop for pictures.. There is a baby grand piano, just provide the piano player. There is a pool table in the loft, and a ping pong table in the garage. There a numerous games for your family and friends to play. You will have complete privacy on the ranch. The open range mile and a half, dead end, dirt road discourages sightseers. Also our road was tagged as one of the prettiest roads to walk in SLO. On top of the hills of the Ernie Ball ranch, the views are incredible!!! Come make some lifetime memories of your own!.
