Valley Oak Ranch is in a wonderful location, private, secluded yet close to town. Tucked back off the main road and serviced by a paved driveway, a beautiful security gate welcomes you to this idyllic 21 +/- acre estate. Along the paved roads between the buildings, meadows and oaks roll on through the ranch like a painting. There’s a sense of peace and tranquility that never seems to vanish.
Valley Oak Ranch is a complete living and working environment. It is a custom home, separate professional office/studio building, serious equestrian facilities, and your own private gym building with indoor fitness pool and weight machine. The house/office complex is surrounded by gardens, majestic native Blue Oaks, many varieties of native plants and miles of walking paths to seek solace, appreciate Nature and enjoy the wildlife scampering round. You will never want to leave.
The main house is 3 BR/2BA approximately 2,000 sf single level Mediterranean style home featuring an open floor plan, cook’s kitchen, and both living and family rooms with masonry fireplaces. About 4,000 sf of outdoor patios and pathways, all Saltillo-tiled with trellis create wonderful areas for outdoor entertaining. All rooms of the home overlook gardens.
Ideally setup for professionals who need or just prefer to work at home, the professional office/studio building is just a few steps across the center courtyard. The office/studio building is a separate building with its own entrance for clients and deliveries. It has its own bath, annex and storage rooms. Attached are a mudroom and a three-car garage, loaded with custom storage cabinets. Locally there is good telephone and high-speed internet availability. Connecting to the outside world is secure and easy. The Bay Area is an easy couple hour drive away for business meetings and conferences.
The fully deer-fenced property is in an excellent naturally soft water area. Both Ag and domestic wells service this one of a kind ranch. There are endless opportunities for Ag and fun activities for everyone.
For the serious equestrian, there is a full-sized Olympic dressage arena, three separate pastures- each with its own loafing shed, two wash-racks and a hay barn. For training, there is a solid-walled breaking arena, hills and trails to climb and run if you are into Eventing, and miles of the Huero Huero River bed for exploring and just relaxing with your favorite horse-buddy.
The 1,200-sf gym building has a fitness pool, professional weight training machine, bath and kitchenette. It is a great place to hang out with friends or soak in the serenity and epic views of the Santa Lucia Mountains. It’s like an adult clubhouse, very private and unique, and great for creative thinking or meditation.
If bike riding is your passion, the property is on the Linne Road bicycle route sought out by biking enthusiasts and serious athletes in-training.
When you need to leave Valley Oak for groceries or other mundane needs it’s just a hop to town minutes away. But when you return, it’s your own private world to enjoy and hangout! Your friends will be envious!
