Deer Lodge is located on 187 acres of oak woodlands on the San Marcos Pass between the “American Riviera City” of Santa Barbara, California, and, to the north, the acclaimed wine region centered in the Santa Ynez Valley. Rare and not to be duplicated, the property is finely finished and architecturally significant. A family compound or a corporate retreat, it is a place to gather with family and friends.
Gently stepping up the hillside are 13 buildings including a main residence with living and dining rooms, family room, master chef’s kitchen, a master suite, offices, laundry, additional full bath, and a half bath. Also, there are three guest houses with eight en suite bedrooms, sitting rooms, kitchens, and laundry.
Entertainment facilities include a pool-media house with fireplace and kitchen, a cabana with bathroom and laundry, a massive sandstone raised-hearth fireplace, a gaming building with a half bath and wet bar, an outdoor kitchen and entertainment deck, wine cellar, boutique vineyard, gym, pool and spa, bocce and sports courts, zip line, tree house, play fort, putting green, and three miles of walking trails. Facilities include a three-bedroom, two-bath caretaker’s cottage with a two-car garage, three garages, a gardener’s garage, and storage shed.
