Neighborhood: Smrg - Santa Margarita, Santa Margarita Rural(80)
Nestled quietly amidst 225+/- acres of sprawling hills and valleys, this ranch with a stunning home (and 2nd home) is the perfect escape for someone looking to buy an experience, a retreat, as much as they are looking to buy a forever home. A working ranch in a quiet neighborhood that isn’t polluted with the hustle and bustle of a city – this 6-bedroom 2-bathroom home is perfect for those who love nature and tranquility.
The property boasts 3,298 square feet of spacious living between two homes, and a completely separate second home provides ample room for both you and your guests. The ranch is cross-fenced with 7 pastures and 3 irrigated fields. This ranch is in the Williamson Act for low property taxes. Abundant water allows for robust cattle and horse operations and other agriculture including vineyard. New well reports state the AG well produced 390GPM and the domestic well 42 GPM which pumps to a 500-gallon storage tank. There are three barns totaling 11 stalls, plus a 10-stall mare motel, 5 turnouts with shelter, and a large arena with a Priefert roping chute, pipe holding pen, alley and lead up.
Ride miles of trails, hunt in the hills, practice at the target range, and fish the lake with its lakeside cottage with a large redwood deck. Family and guests may be entertained under the covered patio with an outdoor fireplace leading to a large fenced lawn area with trampoline and fruit trees.
The home is appealingly remodeled with an open great room, kitchen island and bar, and a woodstove. The spacious master bedroom has its own wood stove with a hearth, walk-in closet, walk-in shower, jetted tub, and French doors leading to a porch. This beautiful ranch is in the scenic Pozo Valley, close to the historic town of Santa Margarita.
