Luxury Equestrian Home&Guest 40acres
For the Equestrian Luxury Enthusiast, we invite you to "Cut 'Em Loose Ranch". A very private and peaceful space, yet so close in and so well planned. With slightly over 40 acres, 2 arenas, and an easement to the adjacent owner's 1,100 acres for trail riding, you can train, condition and ride to your heart's content! And pasture your horses too. Entering the gated entrance and palm-lined drive, past the lower orchard, you will be greeted with llamas and alpacas on your left and a view of the dressage arena with an elevated observation deck on your right. Approaching the house via a sweeping uphill driveway, the stables have a full tack room with bathroom, hay storage, office, stalls with attached paddocks, covered storage for farm equipment and separate parking area for cars and trailer. Extensive landscaping, extra large koi pond, exercise arena, livestock outbuildings, gazebo and fountain area, decks, fire pit patio, large pool and hot tub, garden area, and upper orchard wrap around the house. Designed by award winning architect Charles Blaugrund to 'bring the outdoors inside', there is a fancy separate 1400 sq. ft. guest home with fireplace, separated by a four-car garage, attached to the 4500 sq ft custom Italianate 2-story home built in 2000 by current owner. For your never-ending pleasure, you will enjoy 360-degree views of the city lights, surrounding hillsides, and the multi-layered mountain ranges that highlight the spectacular sunsets. All of this in the mild Mediterranean climate of Ventura County, California, just 30 minutes from the Pacific Ocean.
