Car: Recommended

The Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo wine regions start within a 10 minute drive from this property. There are approximately 200 wineries in these regions covering over 30,000 acres of planted vines.

The mild winters and warm summers mean that local produce is available year round at one of five local farmers markets. The lively Thursday night farmers market in down town San Luis Obispo is a fixture with locals and tourists like.

Surf sports, sailing and boating are an integral part of the central coast lifestyle, adding to the layer back feel of the area.

Other popular outdoor sports include mountain biking, road cycling, hiking and trail running. The extensive single track trails are a well kept secret, and afford passionate riders many hours of exploration.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I'm an Australian-American athlete and entrepreneur and my spouse Leah is a television personality and fitness professional.

Why the Owner Chose San Luis Obispo, CA, USA:
Cal Poly is Leah's Alma Mater and San Luis Obispo holds a special place in her heart. Ian grew up in Sydney Australia, so the beach and outdoor lifestyle is a perfect fit - not to mention the smell of the Eucalyptus trees! The house is in a quiet neighborhood that is no more than 10 minutes from any part of town or the outdoors. Hiking, mountain biking, restaurants, shopping and the historic mission are a few minutes away. The Paso Robles and Edna Valley wine district start 10 minutes drive from our property. You can access Avila Beach, Montana de Oro, Morro Bay surf beaches and hikes as quickly as you can get in the door at Whole Foods!

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
Our home is uniquely situated in the Banana Belt of San Luis Obispo, just above the (very rare) frost line, beyond the summer sea fog and sheltered from the occasionally strong afternoon breeze. We had wanted a house here for many years and finally found this perfect location.
