A 300-Acre Ranch That’s Been Decorated With Gusto

The Quail H Ranch at 1162 Alisos Road in Santa Ynez is a gentleman rancher’s dream come true. Or maybe a gentleman vintner’s: “In the Happy Canyon AVA in Santa Barbara County’s wine region, this ranch is ideal for establishing a premium Bordeaux varietal vineyard,” says the listing.


Bedrooms: Eight; four in the main house, and two in each of the two cottages.
Bathrooms: Four full and two half baths in the main house, and one in each cottage.
Size/Acreage: 8,200 square feet / 296 acres.
Price: $16.5 million.
Last sold: Unclear.
Listing agents:
 Mike Brady and Micah Brady of Sotheby’s International Realty.


There are technically two parcels, of around 104 and 193 acres. And the land is beautiful, as you’d expect, and ready for your horses: “The ranch has fenced and cross fenced pastures for grazing livestock. Horse facilities include a 5 stall center-isle barn with wash rack and tack room, a restored vintage barn with 3 stalls, hay and equipment storage, a loft and an entertainment area complete with bar. There are irrigated pastures, dressage and cutting arenas and a hot walker. A large open pasture has been a ‘cowboy’ polo field.”

What makes the property really stand out, however, is the main house. Built in 2009, the 8,200-square-foot residence has been decorated with gusto. Note the leopard-print sofa in the bar.

And there are a pair of two-bedroom guest cottages.
