The Santa Ynez Valley offers a broad range of properties that are or have the potential to be a farm, ranch or vineyard. These range from a couple of acres to hundreds of acres, with an equally broad price range. Many of my clients have have come to the Santa Ynez Valley with an interest in having some land for organic gardening, a couple of horses/goats/llamas or a small vineyard. Most are happy with 2-5 acres of usable land, a comfortable home and reasonably priced water. Properties that meet these criteria can run into the $2 million range, depending on location and improvements.
This property is in a rustically elegant, quiet, oak filled location, on a cul de sac with 1-7 acre properties, several with horses. The parcel is slightly under two acres, is cross fenced and slopes down modestly in the back. It has great views and a rare view easement, which prohibits adding buildings higher than 6 ft. This property would make for an excellent personal ranch. The east facing slope would be fine for grapes or other farming. Its water is metered and provided by the Santa Ynez River Water Conservation District. Want more info on this property? Text or call me at 805 588-3616, or send an email.
This 3 acre property is in the more rural feeling end of Fredensborg Cyn, with 1-5 acre parcels in the area. It has panoramic views and a private feel. The parcel is sloped, with a graduated decline, and is fenced and gated. It would work well for horses, although some grading might have to be done for an arena. There is plenty of acreage for planting. I believe that this parcel in north facing, not the ideal for grapes, but it would probably work. The water comes from a shared well, which is generally one of the least expensive sources. That would have to be checked. Want more info on this property?

While the price on this property is slightly over the million mark (I assume some negotiation), the parcel is off a cul de sac in a lovely, open area and adjacent to the 100+acre Mills property. It is nearly flat and highly useable. One acre is fenced and has a small barn. This property would be excellent for a personal ranch or farm and/or a personal vineyard. As for the latter, it seems that vineyard aficionados want more slope for drainage. But there are many vines here, including in the immediate vicinity, that are planted in the flats. This property has a meter and water source from the Santa Ynez River Water Conservation District. Want more info on this property? Text or call me at 805 588-3616, or send an email.
