"... the way California was supposed to be." Rambling open spaces, rolling oak-studded hills, remarkable homesites, and the most unique lifestyle in the most unique wine region in California. Here is a combination of privacy and proximity, style and sophistication, with a version of luxury that only space can provide.
If someone said you could have everything, would you believe it?
Picture yourself living in the heart of the Paso Robles Wine Region, on an 850-acre ranch with only eighty-five homes, yet a quick five minutes from town! Imagine the personal space you'll have in a home averaging 4200 square feet on a lot up to five acres. And just outside your private world, 500 acres of open space that features a picnic-ready lake and miles of groomed hiking trails with 360-degree views.
This is Santa Ysabel Ranch, lying less than thirty miles from the Pacific Ocean on the Paso Robles-Templeton border and only a half-hour private flight from San Francisco or LA. The Ranch is minutes from Paso Robles’ town square, Templeton’s Main Street and, of course, the 300 or so wineries that make up the Paso Robles AVA. Not to mention the craft brewers and specialty distillers that assure a complete selection of adult beverages to pair with an array of world-class cuisines.
Within a short drive from our 24-hour manned gate you'll discover two golf courses, two tennis clubs, an equestrian park, and a 42,000-square-foot fitness club with a 50-meter outdoor pool. While other private communities may include these amenities, and charge excessive fees whether the homeowner uses them or not, our proximity to these exceptional resources makes them à la carte for our residents.
ABC News dubbed Paso Robles the “sassiest wine region in California.” Wine Spectator said it was one of “California’s sweet spots for Syrah, Grenache and other Rhône varietals.” Wine Enthusiast named it “wine region of the year.” The New York Times has placed Paso Robles sixth on the list of 52 not-to-be-missed destinations worldwide for 2020.
Spurs in the supermarket
Not so long ago, Paso was little more than a sleepy cow town where “out-of-towners” came for steaming sulphur springs and the restorative powers they promised. Today Paso Robles rocks.
It's the hot destination on California’s vibrant Central Coast, an area that stretches from the manicured golf courses and tony enclaves of Carmel, Pebble Beach and Monterey down the Big Sur stretch to Santa Barbara. Music is a player in the social scene here. World-renowned artists perform at Paso's annual Mid-State Fair as well as at one of the county's largest outdoor amphitheaters. Wineries showcase local talent and the Tin City wine and brew scene features up-and-coming acts.
Unlike Napa, Sonoma and other wine areas, Paso still celebrates its rustic and robust cowboy culture with round-ups and trail rides, Spring brandings and country music weekends. This is still the land of 4-H, where kids begin their lives on ranches or small farms raising animals and learning what it means to put in a real day’s work. They study hard and finish their education at San Luis Obispo’s Cal Poly then head off into the world with both boots on the ground. For many it’s a simpler, more honest life away from the concrete cityscape. The annual Pioneer Day Parade hails back to these early daysbefore the freeways were built and Amtrak scheduled regular service to Paso Robles.
Summers here are filled with hikes and horseback rides, fishing and boating on three neighboring lakes, and campfires under the stars. Cyclists peddle the 25 scenic bike rides in the area. Weekenders pop in to sample a small-town atmosphere as well as a cadre of respected award-winning winemakers and celebrated chefs whipping up everything from sophisticated international cuisine to burgers the size of a hubcap. Organic farm-to-table fare as well as artisanal local olive oils and hand-crafted cheeses are presented at local farmers markets and festivals. Paso offers most amenities of any city its size, yet maintains a small-town character where merchants know your name and restaurateurs remember your favorite dish.
