As you ascend the long entry drive and approach the main residence, time seems to slow down. The estate transports you to a time when California was still rugged and just beginning to find its elegance.
Arriving at the home, you are instantly greeted by an expansive, south facing lawn, which gently unfolds before bowing reverently to the sea.
180-degree sightlines look from Ventura to Santa Barbara, and beyond. Situated directly above Rincon Point, from this location, watch as the water bends around the coast to create one of California’s most iconic waves. For decades past, and years to come, legends in the surf world descend on this fabled break to dance with Mother Nature.
Perhaps more impressive than watching the surf from the sand, the Bates Ranch House gives an incredible coastline view from above, which allows spectators to truly take in the awe-inspiring power of the sea.
