Horse Property on California's Central Coast

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Twin Horse Realty DRE# 01475441

There are several areas to consider when looking for a home with horse property on California's Central Coast. North Santa Barbara County has the Santa Ynez Valley, Los Alamos, and Santa Maria Valley. Santa Ynez Valley is the southernmost area and includes the towns of Beullton, Solvang, Santa Ynez, and Los Olivos. The area is home to many world class horse breeding and training programs of diverse breeds and disciplines, although several well known established Arabian horse farms call Santa Ynez home. It is a truly beautiful valley and a generally quiet, peaceful place to live. Horse ranches share the scenery with well tended vineyards of local wineries and tasting rooms abound throughout the towns.  Most homes with horse facilities are in the 5, 10, and 20 acre range.

Moving north on your search for horse property on California's Central Coast you will find Los Alamos. If you are looking for larger acreage, perhaps to run cattle or plant vines as well as keeping horses...Los Alamos may be right for you. Nestled in between the Santa Ynez and Santa Maria Valleys, in Los Alamos you can find historic adobe settlements and modern construction on large parcels of land. We are talking hundreds of acres here. 

The northernmost part of Santa Barbara county for horse property on California's Central Coast is the Santa Maria Valley. Included in this area is Orcutt and the unincorporated areas of Sisquoc and Tepesquet canyon.  Santa Maria horse properties share space with a farming community that grows lots of strawberries, broccoli, and cauliflower as well as a burgeoning vineyard and winemaking industry. Some horse properties here even have a view of the coastal dunes. Since Santa Maria has a much larger population than the other communities mentioned, there is the more convenient aspect to living here. Many more choices for shopping and jobs to support your horses!

To help you sort through all the listings out there, I have pre-filtered for all the horse properties in these areas on my website . They are even broken down into each area so you can view horse property for sale in just Santa Ynez Valley, Los Alamos, or Santa Maria Valley.  You can contact me regarding any of the horse properties found there and together we can reach your goal of owning a horse property on California's Central Coast.
