Parcel 48's north ridge provides stunning views spanning from Santa Barbara in the east to the offshore islands in the south. This vantage point also offers a unique viewing spot to watch the rocket launches from the nearby Vandenberg Space Force Base to the north.
The ranch has approved development plans for a main residence and a guest house, expertly designed by the respected architect John D. Kelley from Santa Barbara. Significant progress was made with the Santa Barbara County Planning and Development towards approval of these plans before 2022.
The property is equipped with two operational wells, with the primary well located next to a water tank and the secondary well sited below the planned development site. There are also two drywells installed on the property, both with capacities exceeding the needs of the proposed development, ensuring ample water supply.
The proposed building site offers beautiful views of Santa Barbara to the east and the rolling hills, the ocean, and the islands to the south. Located in the shelter of the ridge, the site is well-protected from the prevailing northwest winds, providing a calm and peaceful living environment.
