100-acre luxury ranch retreat set along the Santa Ynez River.

Peaceful, Serene, and Private.  A special property providing refuge from crowded cities and over-scheduled lives.

Rancho Rio Robles is a 103-acre luxury ranch located along a meandering river in California’s beautiful Santa Ynez Valley, home to internationally acclaimed wineries, vineyards, and equestrian ranches. The 16-room, 6 bath main residence is large enough to contain all the amenities you expect from a luxury property but lives cozy, with sun-filled rooms and extensive verandas, surrounded by colorful gardens, mature landscaping, and stunning panoramas of the surrounding mountains and hills. It is truly one of the most beautiful settings in California.

 The Ranch property offers great utility with its flat and highly useable acreage and outstanding water resources. While providing great privacy and serenity - a true retreat, Rancho Rio Robles is only minutes to the Valley’s shopping, fine dining, and first-class medical facilities, a commuter’s distance to Santa Barbara, and two-hour drive to Los Angeles.

The 8,000+ square foot main residence was designed by well-known Santa Barbara architect Tom Meany, who, with the owners, created a spectacular “Farmhouse”.  The design is a sophisticated interpretation of the Australian Queenslander style, embodying elements of American Craftsman and Sea Island Plantation, which together proffer a perfect blend of country and sophistication, luxury amenities, and modern technology. The residence features four bedrooms, three of which are ensuite, and gracious living areas which include a great room, country kitchen and morning room, formal dining room, library, a luxurious 12 seat theater, 1,000 bottle wine cellar, craft room, extensive covered verandas, two private offices, two laundry rooms, and a three-car garage. 

The ranch’s other facilities include a 3,500 square foot additional residence, a ranch manager’s house, shop, barn, a boutique vineyard, and almost 65 acres of green fields of orchard grass and oats, and two fenced and irrigated horse pastures with turnout facilities. Water is supplied by three highly productive wells, with the agricultural well producing over 1,000 gallons of water per minute, sufficient for almost any endeavor.

Rancho Rio Robles offers an extraordinary refuge from the crowds and the hustle and bustle. It is a unique property combining privacy, charm, brilliant design, skilled craftsmanship, luxury, all amid truly beautiful surroundings.
