About the Property

3 bedroom, 2 bath home

Enjoy the tranquility of our small farm where the amenities of the charming village of Los Olivos are just steps away. Plan your day while breakfasting in the shade of a large mulberry tree, fortifying yourself with fresh organic eggs collected (in season) from our hens and seasonal fruits and veggies you may harvest from our garden. Stroll into the village to enjoy local wine or visit an art gallery. Bike the wine trails of Ballard Canyon or Foxen Canyon where you might stop to enjoy a picnic lunch at one of the many scenic wineries along the way. Let the local shuttle bus, which stops just a few yards from your front door, chauffer you to the nearby towns of Ballard, Santa Ynez, Solvang, and Buellton where you might spend an afternoon visiting historical sites or museums, tasting wine, sampling olive oil, Danish pastries (and Aebleskivers!) or shopping for souvenirs. At the end the day relax on our patio or in the jacuzzi situated in a beautifully landscaped garden. Pull a chair nearer the paddock, where the chickens and goats will surely entertain. On chilly evenings enjoy a movie in the family room where a cozy fire and a soft chenille throw will warm you. Prepare dinner in our newly remodeled kitchen or walk into the village to savor local gourmet farm-to-table fare.

Car: Recommended

The Santa Ynez Valley is an region of exceptional natural beauty and a near perfect Mediterranean climate. It is known for its horse farms, cattle ranches, olive groves, and crop farms as well as many of the nation's finest vineyards. Most definitely come to experience the valley's acclaimed wineries, but take the time to discover its exquisite landscape. Explore the Los Padres National Forest; picnic, hike, or mountain bike among the oaks and pines of the Figueroa Mountain, Lake Cachuma, or Santa Ynez River recreational areas. Discover local flora and fauna at the Sedgwick Reserve, nearly 6,000 pristine acres under the stewardship of the University of California at Santa Barbara. Visit the historic towns of Ballard, Santa Ynez, and Solvang to learn how the traditions of Spain, Denmark, and the American West made their mark on the development of early California. And of course visit the village of Los Olivos, a 19th-century stage coach stop whose Victorian and Old West architecture is now home to dozens of local wine tasting rooms.
