Rancho San Leandro was originally developed by the Dominguez family in the mid-1850’s as part of one of California’s largest land grants.  As the years passed, the surrounding area evolved from Pueblo lands to polo fields and finally to what it is today, the prestigious gated community, Ennisbrook.

 

This unique Adobe, with original Saltillo floors, thick plaster walls, hand-hewed redwood beams and sprawling covered verandas, has withstood the test of time and serves as an ambassador of a lost era. The compound, comprised of the original Adobe (circa 1850), the Monterey House (circa 2006) and a first class equestrian facility, represents a stunning composition boasting majestic ocean and mountain views, a genuine provenance, and modern amenities.


Meandering up the main drive flanked by 50 ancient olive trees, one arrives at the large, stone covered motor court and entry fountain.  Part of Rancho San Leandro’s immense appeal is the flexibility of the estate.  Whether her new owner prefers to live in the Adobe and use the Monterey House for guests and offices, or enjoy the Monterey House as the main residence with the Adobe for guests and entertaining, a myriad of options await.

Historic Adobe


Historic Adobe



Inside the Adobe, an exceptional fifty-foot living and dining room overlooks the south facing lawn and out to the sea.  Massive fireplaces flank each end of the dramatic space and add a stately anchor to the lofty beamed ceilings and deeply recessed windows. 


 
 
 
 

The spacious master suite, with massive hand-hewed beamed ceilings and a cozy fireplace, overlooks the sea and offers access to the lush gardens and olive groves.

On the western end of the Adobe, a charming kitchen and family room mingle with professional appliances and extensive storage while original features including a copper sink date back to the dawn of the Adobe.

The Monterey House


The Monterey House



In 2006, the Adobe welcomed the Monterey House to Rancho San Leandro.  This sister structure added approximately 3,600 sq ft to the estate.  Built in the same style as the Adobe, the Monterey House could easily serve as the main residence or as a fabulous guest house with private office space.  


 
 

Robust beams, tiled floors, Santa Barbara stone fireplaces and plastered walls create the same sense of romance as the Adobe, but with a decidedly fresh tone.

 
 
 
 

With two beautiful bedrooms, one with mountain views and the other with an ocean view balcony, a charming living room, a formal dining room, private gardens and terraces, the ultimate home office and a gym, the Monterey House offers a wonderful compliment to the Adobe and ushers Ranch San Leandro into a new era of modern glory.

Inviting Courtyards


Inviting Courtyards



Inviting courtyards, flowering gardens and covered verandas surround and connect the Adobe to the Monterey House and capture the ocean and mountain views. Though a second separate residence, the Monterey House is an easy extension of the Adobe’s living space.  


Together, the Adobe and Monterey House showcase and celebrate the indoor/outdoor lifestyle that has come to define Santa Barbara. The grounds of Rancho San Leandro laced with lush gardens, botanical vignettes, and drought tolerant succulents; enjoy an afternoon relaxing on the covered veranda; romantic courtyards beckon late night star gazing; stone pathways meander throughout the property and lead you to discover moments from the estate’s history.

On the western side of the property, an original carriage turnaround gracefully encircles a grove of ancient oaks and stands as a reminder of the estate’s origins.  

Bordering the turnaround is an incredible horse paddock with four covered, well-appointed stalls. Each breezy stall features rubber floor maps, pulverized rubber tiling and opens to a covered walkway. The large, well-appointed tack room with a half-bath, kitchenette, and storage area complete the stable area.  A stone’s throw from the barn, a lovely fenced arena is an idyllic setting for training.  Whether you prefer formal dressage, local trails, or riding on the beach, this gorgeous equestrian facility is sure to please.

With a historic pedigree and resting on nearly six acres, Rancho San Leandro continues to play an important part in Montecito’s rich history.  Modern amenities, a beautiful equestrian facility and sweeping views of the ocean and mountains coalesce effortlessly to offer the best of the Montecito lifestyle.
