Ranch San Carlos, California BEDROOMS: 12 | BATHROOMS: 10 full, 3 half SQUARE FEET: 29,483 | ACRES: 237

PRICE: $125,000,000


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. His 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; where men wore formal dress and women donned Parisian couture gowns to welcome dinner guests to glittering soirees. The home is infused with an atmosphere of sophistication and refinement. The barrel vaulted central gallery which connects the sumptuous public rooms to the upper bedroom wings is lined with hand-painted 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. 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–

In addition to these characteristics, Freeland Farms is optimally set up to be a first-class horse-breeding or show farm, complete with pastures and cypress wood fencing designed with 8” by 8” notched posts. For this endeavor, Freeland Farms can be purchased with a separate 25-acre, world-class equestrian facility. No home like this exists in Midwest today.■
