Rarely available adobe-style casita located in the historic El Rancho Hacienda development. Originally envisioned in 1946 as a seven-cottage dude ranch for riders headed to the nearby Skofield property where the Rancheros Visitadores camped, El Rancho Hacienda is now a private 4.59-acre enclave of unique adobe-style cottages held in co-tenancy between owners. The casita features an extended porch perfect for al fresco dining, terra-cotta roof tiles, textured walls, casement windows, a corner fireplace, and a vaulted ceiling anchored by red tile flooring in the primary living area. The spacious grounds feature many specimen plants, giving it the feeling of a botanical garden. The offering is completed by a detached office, art studio and charming outbuilding. Enjoy a unique piece of Santa Barbara’s heritage nestled close to some of the best hiking and biking in the area, and just minutes from downtown Santa Barbara, Montecito and nearby beaches.
