The Virtual Tour - 480 Glen Annie Rd.
Eleven hilltop acres overlooking Santa Barbara's coastal plain and the Pacific ocean. An enchanting farmhouse, inspired by classic California ranches, and offering exceptional views of the Channel Islands and inspiring foothills, is surrounded by acres of income producing organic citrus and avocado orchards. The generous single level floor plan with warm and welcoming great-room living, all opening to the wrap-around porch for peaceful mountain views and sunsets.
The open chef’s kitchen hosts a breakfast nook, wood fire pizza oven, and great-room dining area, with french doors to the dining porch. The Master suite offers a retreat with stunning mountain views. There are two additional bedrooms with vistas of the orchards and rolling hillsides.
A separate two bedroom Manager's house with a cozy living room and covered porch is sited with views of the organic orchards and Glen Annie hills. The ranch boasts 6 acres of premium Hass avocado and 1.5 acres of the prized Satsuma Mandarin-tangerine trees with steady production history. Additional heirloom varieties of apples, cherries, apricots, plums, and much more create a mixed fruit orchard along the entry drive.
A three-bay garage/barn has room for ranch equipment, storage, and workshop space. The homes and landscape are designed by Tichenor & Thorp, AIA, and built with exceptional craftsmanship by Allen Construction to afford a truly rare blend of casually sophisticated living and luxurious rural serenity. Interiors designed by Madeline Stuart & Associates. All near the conveniences of Glen Annie Golf Course, the Bacara Resort (memberships available), beaches and Sunday Farmers Market.
