Set atop a graceful knoll of nearly six acres overlooking the Pacific Ocean and in the shadow of the Santa Ynez Mountains, Rancho San Leandro reigns over Montecito as it has for nearly 170 years.
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.
