Santa Barbara, California

Santa Barbara County has long been lauded as the American Riviera, boasting a healthy mix of outdoor activities in the scenic backdrop of mountains, valley and beaches. Championship golf, tennis, water sports, cycling, beach volleyball and hiking are all at one’s disposal in Santa Barbara and Montecito alike. One sport, however, has been a longtime favorite of property owners in Santa Barbara County, boasting a rich history that is entwined with the development of the area itself: horseback riding.

Santa Barbara’s popular equestrian lifestyle can be traced back to roots in the all American pastime of polo. Historical philanthropist Max C. Fleischmann (founder of the Santa Barbara Foundation) played a large role in the development of polo fields in the county. The East-Coast transplant adopted Santa Barbara as his home in the 1920s and made an indelible mark on the county’s history, along with other early industrialists and fellow sportsmen who moved to Santa Barbara during this time.

Santa Barbara County has kept some of its history alive by foregoing subdivision development. This translates to historical homes beautifully restored to their original grandeur, streets lined with mature trees, and the comfort of knowing Santa Barbara County is much less chaotic than its Southern California neighbor, Los Angeles.

“You are ten minutes from the downtown area from anywhere in Santa Barbara,” says Sotheby’s agent Suzanne Perkins. “The weather is also fantastic: there is no smog, no bugs and no humidity.”

One particular property in Suzanne’s portfolio is the perfect option for those looking to embrace the equestrian lifestyle in Santa Ynez. Newport Farm is a 38-acre equine paradise. In fact, it has earned the nickname of being the “Pebble Beach of equestrian properties.” While the property features a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom main residence, manager’s home, and 3 guest apartments, many upgrades can be seen in the barn facilities. Newport Farm boasts 92 horse stalls, a state-of-the-art Foaling Barn, 16 large irrigated pastures, and training, cutting and roping areas.

A slower pace of living and the casual elegance synonymous with Santa Barbara awaits those who seek a new lifestyle in the American Riviera. Discover your inner adventurer while you savor the treasures of a one-of-a-kind area.

Casa Piena in Poway near San Diego County, California

The spectacular and expansive Casa Piena (meaning Full House) may be located on 4.5 acres of land in San Diego, California, but the Italian-inspired estate is as authentic as they come. To say that the 39-room estate was a major “labor of love” for all parties involved during its construction could never be considered an understatement.

The 11 bedroom, 17 bathroom Casa Piena took almost 5 years to complete and brought together some of the world’s finest artisans and craftsmen to create one-of-a-kind murals, wood paneling, mosaics and other high-quality handcrafted touches.

“The amazing quality of craftsmanship and attention to detail in the Casa Piena estate is unparalleled in any other property that I have had the opportunity to work on,” stated Ed Earl of Priority One Properties.  Earl served as the Owners Construction Project Manager for this estate and represented the homeowner in all interactions with the contractor, architect, designers and tradesman during the construction of the estate home and is now performing as the broker.

Hand forged iron gates usher visitors into the palatial estate, which is composed of four separate buildings. The main house, pool cabana, guesthouse and detached garage total 26,862 square feet under roof. Outdoor features include a sunken tennis court, 3,000+ square foot pool with exhilarating water features, a gazebo, terraced areas, an olive orchard and a private jogging trail that surrounds the estate.

The interior of this private estate showcases and array of classic details, such as carved wood moldings, solid walnut doors, elaborate beamed and hand painted ceilings, ancient stone floors, exotic wood-paneled walls, authentic Italian lighting, and imported hand-carved stone fireplaces.

The materials used for Casa Piena come from over 20 distinct countries all over the world, including Egypt, Tunisia, Madagascar, Bali, China, Brazil, Greece, Spain, Italy, France, Germany, England, Canada, and Mexico.

Old-world styling and imported materials are a large focal point of Casa Piena. Not only do they add value and a rich uniqueness to the home, but they bring all of the ease and grace of an Italian countryside villa to the lush green setting of Southern California. A historic opportunity for ownership of the Casa Piena Estate awaits.  To learn more about the estate or to schedule a private tour, please visit www.mycasapiena.com

Casa Del Mar in San Juan Capistrano, California

Half a mile as the crow flies from the Pacific Ocean, Casa Del Mar, in San Juan Capistrano, is a virtual private resort -- one and a quarter acres of palm fringed, rose scented paradise. 

"This is outdoor living at its absolute finest," says Lee Ann Canaday of Re/Max Fine Homes and the Canaday Group, listing agent for the property. 

Exceptionally private, the 9,000 square foot Spanish Colonial estate is a fantasy of California living, featuring spectacular ocean and mountain views from trumpet-vine twirled balconies and a central patio with infinity pool, spa, outdoor kitchen, and a fireplace to enjoy the southern California climate.

"In California you don't get a gated estate with an ocean view unless you pay $20 million," says the broker. Here you can lie in bed and watch the waves for $5.99 million.

The eight bedroom, eight bath home, features formal living spaces that rival those of its Hollywood neighbors, a gourmet kitchen with crystal chandeliers and a vast Italian marble island. For casual living, there's a family room and a home theater, with theater seating, bar, and kitchenette.

The master retreat is the crown jewel, "a tranquil haven, with a marble fireplace and a balcony showcasing the hillside and ocean views," says Canaday. The bath boasts a Jacuzzi, steam shower, and sauna.

A separate 1,200 square foot, 2-bedroom casita plays luxurious host to guests.

The area is alive with history. San Juan Capistrano itself was built around the eponymous mission, a main attraction in Orange County.

Contemporary pleasures also abound, says Canaday. The city of Laguna Beach is minutes away, as is whale-watching in Dana Point Harbor, golfing on the best greens, dining at world-class restaurants, or taking a spa day at the St. Regis Resort or Ritz Carlton.

And with the freeway and train station close-by, it's a quick hop to the glitter of Los Angeles.

Interested buyers can contact Lee Ann Canaday by visiting www.canadaygroup.com.
