hrough grand gates where giant palms stand as silent sentinels is the magnificent Ranch San Carlos, a 237-acre estate property that for nearly 100 years has been under the ownership of one family. This extraordinary property cascades down the foothills of Montecito and offers panoramic vistas across the valley to the shimmering blue Pacific. A long, gently curving driveway over a half-mile long is edged with Santa Barbara stone and ascends through acres of citrus groves to the sprawling hilltop manor home designed in 1931 by master architect Reginald Johnson for one of America’s most prestigious families. Johnson was the pre-eminent architect

of the era and continues to be celebrated for the many notable homes he designed in Pasadena and Montecito. This spectacular Monterey Colonial of approximately 29,483 square feet is comprised of over thirty rooms. From the vast motor court one passes through the front door and into the grand entry hall where one is immediately transported back in time to an era of elegance and refinement. But this is a southern California refinement which is more of a Ralph Lauren elegance where the casual life meets European sophistication. The barrel vaulted central gallery which connects the sumptuous public rooms to the upper bedroom wings is lined with handpainted period murals and windowed display cases. This grand hall sets a tone of luxury and attention to detail for which Johnson was so well known. In addition to the main home, this spectacular estate includes 10 staff or guest cottages and wonderful equestrian facilities. Reginald Johnson’s architectural ingenuity is no better showcased than in his brilliant use of the natural slope and contours of the property. He astutely sited the home on two natural terraces. By planning the formal living rooms around a central courtyard and placing the Master and family bedroom wings on the upper terrace he effectively created a spatial separation that afforded privacy, calm and exceptional views. â–

PRICE: $45,000,000

T

he American West has always been a land of dreams. It’s a land of endless possibilities and unsurpassed beauty. It’s a land where sustainability and living close to nature is a part of life. River View Ranch is a place where all of this comes together. It is a fully operational cattle ranch that encompasses over 200,000 acres along with one of the most incredible luxury homes in the state of Utah.

The ranch gets its name from the Woodland, Utah estate where the 17,000 square foot European manor sits on a bluff overlooking the Provo River. Located only 30 minutes from Park City, the estate includes over a mile of the Provo River, as well as some astonishingly beautiful pastures and meadows near the home. The upper Provo River is known as one of the premiere fly fishing rivers in the American West. There are also two ponds on the property where family and friends can fish and play on the water. In addition to the water activities there is a 24 stall barn, an outdoor riding arena, a hay barn, and a shop. With 271 acres surrounding the home, the property is large enough to saddle up a horse and enjoy a couple of hours riding around the estate. The home was designed and built by the Mrs. Field’s Cookies fortune, and it was recently remodeled and renovated to enhance its original grandeur. The estate is a masterpiece of craftsmanship with exquisite woodworking, eleven dramatic fireplaces, stunning light fixtures, and numerous imported European accents and stained glass windows with the most dramatic one coming from Scotland and set in the entry above the stairs featuring Mary Magdaline. With ten bedrooms, including a magnificent master suite, and a large gourmet kitchen you

can entertain in grand style: dine in the formal dining room where the woodwork was imported from Europe; sit in the formal living room anchored by a huge fireplace and look out at the riverbottoms below; relax in the great room where the walls and ceilings are intricately covered in stunning black walnut; retreat to the office where you will be inspired by the teak and walnut woodworking; or, move down to the basement where you can play pool, watch a movie, cozy up to the bar that was brought in from Scotland, or unwind in the sauna. Owning and running a cattle ranch was another part of the family’s dream and so the owners went about searching for the ideal lands to expand the River View Ranch. Through several strategic acquisitions, they purchased over 41,000 deeded acres with an additional 138,118 acres in BLM and State grazing leases along with 21,328 acres associated with the Grouse Creek Livestock Association. The ranch has extensive water rights and is capable of supporting over 1,000 cattle. We are selling River View Ranch as a turn-key operation complete with homes, furnishings, ranch equipment and machinery, cattle, grazing permits, hunting rights, and mineral rights. To date, no mining has been done on the ranch, but for decades there have been rumors of gold on the southern portion of the ranch. ■7 | www.Top10HomesUSA.com

Aspen Grove Ranch offers the highest quality finishes and superior interior design. A home of refinement, elegance and comfort, the entire panorama of the surrounding valley and Gore and Williams Fork Mountain Ranges are magnificently captured throughout the home. Designed by renowned architect Jon Gunson, the home was built to showcase three primary areas; a private wing for the owners, a main house, and a connected guest house. The overall concept of three structures places the main house in the center with the master suite and guest house flanking each side. For the further enjoyment of guests, the lower level of the main

residence includes a western style bar, game tables, a movie theater, a performance stage, a children’s dressing room complete with costumes, and two regulation bowling lanes. The landscape showcases a covered bridge, cascading waterfalls, ponds, stone decks, and bridges connecting each wing of the home. The acreage also lends itself as a retreat complete with hiking, horseback riding, hunting, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. The Homeowner’s Association maintains a master grazing lease on the greater ranch which provides landowners the opportunity to run cattle on their property, maintaining agricultural status with related favorable property tax rates. ■
