Description

Experience a piece of history at the Latigo Estate in Santa Ynez/Santa Barbara, California which is a beautiful balance of Spanish colonial with all the modern luxury conveniences.

Backing up to the Los Padres National Forest, Latigo Estate was one of the original Spanish land grants, La Laguna, given to Soldier Don Octavio Gutierrez in the early 1800s and has only been owned by a select few since. This gorgeous plot of earth is considered an environmental treasure. The 4600+ sprawling acres have been cultivated into a sanctuary, away from the public eye, into a world all its own. From the moment one enters the gates, they are transported to a different place, a world of beautiful architecture, peaceful living and an appreciation of nature. When visiting the property, one cant help but feel they have been transported back to the California of the past, walking on lands that have been a part of the Gold Coast’s rich history for centuries.

Rarely does an estate come on the market that perfectly balances luxurious and modern living with a respect for historical significance. The current owner has put his heart and soul into designing this masterpiece. Renowned Architect David L. Leavengood went as far to camp out on the property to find the ideal vantage point for constructing this compound. Leavengood was able to expertly combine Spanish colonial styles of South America, inspired by 18th and 19th century Colombian residences. The epicenter of the home is the open air courtyard surrounded by a covered wrap around patio with a Spanish tiled water fountain, sitting beautifully in the center, a perfect spot for reflection or sunset entertaining. Large Spanish style barn doors open the courtyard up to the grassy yard space and views of the south hills.

The 13,000+ square foot main residence offers everything from a movie theatre, expansive wine cellar, library and 6 spacious bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms. The master bedroom, complete with dual bathrooms and walk-in closets, has its own private outdoor balcony situated perfectly to take in the surrounding mountain views. The large patio area off of the home features an outdoor fireplace with sitting area, a gorgeous custom pool adorned with boulders for diving and plenty of entertaining spaces.

The property offers several accessory buildings from a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom guest house and a large workmans garage, to one of a kind equestrian facilities with a 10,000+ square foot barn, several grazing paddocks, an oversized arena and fieldstone watering pools. Also on the property is a separate work out studio, 4 car garage, a picturesque tennis court and helipad for easy travel. Though not currently being used for agricultural purposes, the property lies deep in the heart of California’s wine country. The soil remains untouched and is asking to be planted with multiple grapes that can be grown in different locations around the property. With two private wells and water cisterns included in the acreage, irrigation for crops is available. This large patch of land is ideal for the future wine maker or anyone looking to own a piece of history and enjoy the peacefulness and privacy that this estate has to offer.
