the kind of character rarely found in modern homes.

2 car garages located nearby. Totaling approximately 2,242 square feet,
this two-story building boasts a similar style construction as the main

well constructed with redwood siding and 30 foot tall gables with two wings
off of the center of each structure. They are often used for entertaining
when not in use for family horses. Multiple wells and storage provide consistent water for ranching and domestic purposes.
Located in the Santa Maria Valley vineyard region, this dramatic ranch is
the favorite getaway for this very busy intercontinental wine family and is a
rare opportunity to own something that is a part of early California's Land Grant history where Mexican armies were encamped during their campaign to acquire vast tracts of prime Southern California land.
