Gracious, serene, and soulful – discover The Ranch at Buena Terra. Situated in the peaceful and picturesque Goleta foothills, mere minutes from highway 101, this resort-like residence and sprawling 22-acre dreamy California ranch offers panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, Channel Islands, Santa Ynez Mountains, and surrounding hillside properties. 

As you approach this incredible property, a sense of a bygone era prevails – you have arrived. Follow the long, beautiful drive to the custom-designed Mediterranean estate. The main residence was conceived by Mark Shields for single-level California living and expands across approximately 6,000 square feet. 

Inside you will find spectacular beauty and thoughtful living spaces that flow seamlessly from room to room. An elegant combination of scale and comfort, 3 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, a private studio/office, library. The home is complete with soaring ceilings, abundant natural light, pecan wood floors, private patios, four fireplaces, and a sparkling pool with views in all directions. The heart of the home is a large chef’s kitchen with an adjoining breakfast nook, formal dining room, butler's pantry and a generous family room which offers ample space to create lasting memories.

The definition of equestrian excellence, this estate offers a fully appointed 6-horse barn that includes a small apartment, tack room, feed room, laundry area, and warm-water wash racks. Facilities feature 12 sheltered pastures/turnout spaces equipped with sprinklers, 9 covered pipe paddocks, cross-ties for grooming, a 60’ covered and lit round pen, an expansive riding arena, and a jump course.

With a sunny, Mediterranean climate, nature abounds at The Ranch at Buena Terra. In your own valley, any level of interest in agriculture can be nurtured on your organic farm – whether you wish to create a small chef’s garden or expand further to plant your own crops. Currently leased by Sunrise Organic Farms, this property is believed to be the longest continuously operating organic farm in California. The surrounding community features an honors-system produce stand, creating a sense of quaint humility that is a rarity these days.

Perfect for entertaining family and friends or enjoying a quiet and peaceful moment– everything you need is truly in your own backyard. This hilltop paradise creates a sense of understated coastal living, offering an idyllic escape from the hustle and bustle below.
