Emblematic of the â€śCalifornia Dreamâ€ť
Live Oaks Ranch, a jewel set in one of Carpinteria's most sought-after areas, is a place of new beginnings and opportunity. Imbued with a century of rich California history, the ranch allows us to travel back to Old California: a time when life was simpler, possibilities were boundless, and privacy was a distinctive commodity.Â
A Pastoral Setting Offering Practical Possibilities
The ranch's more than 21 enchanting acres rest at the end of Lambert Road and are introduced by a winding driveway under a canopy of oaks.Â Iconic Live Oaks Ranch estate is home to some of natureâ€™s most majestic creatures. For example, dewy mornings invite friendly herds of deer to the entrancing meadows nearly every day. Nearby, thriving Hass avocado orchards provide an ample harvest and potential tax advantages.
Restful Retreat, Working Ranch, or Both
The approximately 3,600 sq. ft. main residence showcases panoramic ocean and mountain vistas via walls of windows, glass doors, and an expansive wraparound terrace. The ocean views are especially unrivaled as they encompass the easterly coastal plain and whitewater views not often found among estate properties. In addition to the main residence, there is a charming approximately 1,700 sq. ft. secondary residence; a part of which was the original late 19th century ranch house.
The property is further enhanced by a large multi-functional 1,500+ sq. ft. structure currently being utilized as a 6-car garage. It offers a profusion of possibilities, however, including horse stables. There is also a 2,000+ sq. ft. workshop, which also presents a host of opportunities, such as room for the hobbyist, car enthusiast or for numerous equestrian use options. Although the property once featured horse facilities, they are no longer operational. Those areas are still on-site, however, should someone wish to rehabilitate them for equine-related purposes. In fact, there are fine equestrian estates adjacent to Live Oaks Ranch.
An Abundance of Amenities and Convenience
Impressive and important among the practcal amenities and advantages presented by this magical sanctuary is an existing exclusive water agreement with Montecito Water District. It provides a substantial advantage for the ranchâ€™s future owner.
In the end, Live Oaks Ranch is truly a Renaissance estate. A gentlepersonâ€™s ranch in every sense of the word, and a throwback to Old California. Imagine a place of utmost tranquility and ethereal beauty. A privileged lifestyle defined by relaxed sophistication, all within minutes of the internationally acclaimed Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club, the affluent enclave of Montecito, world-class beaches and popular hiking trails.
