It’s not hard to get a little breathless when describing this 108-acre equestrian estate. Located in Templeton, California, about seven miles from Paso Robles, the sweeping and singular Central California ranch estate has an abundance of extraordinary amenities for horse lovers, as well as rolling pastures, orchards, ponds, a 10,000 square-foot Spanish Colonial Revival home, 2,300 square-foot guest house and 1,500 square-foot manufactured home, according to listing agent Amy Meredith of Coldwell Banker Realty in Santa Barbara.
The main residence, crafted in 2017 and complete with an elevator, “offers an exceptional living experience,” says Meredith. Richly detailed inside and out, the expansive retreat has echos of the early California hacienda style with exposed beams, imported Spanish tile and wrought iron throughout. Large windows frame far-reaching views of meadows and hills while welcoming an abundance of natural light.
Among the home’s many notable features are a two-story great room with chandeliers and stone fireplace, a two-story library with a fireplace and a spiral staircase, a formal dining room and a top-of-the-line chef’s kitchen with a butler’s pantry, bar seating and a built-in breakfast area. In addition to four en-suite bedrooms, the main house has a home theater and a 2,000-bottle wine cellar.
In a celebration of the Central California lifestyle, the house offers convenient indoor-outdoor flow, with numerous balconies on the upper floor and patios and covered entertaining areas on the ground floor. A 75-foot pool has covered and open areas for lounging, plus a spa pool house complete with a 10-person sauna, steam room, exercise room, outdoor shower, guest quarters, two baths, laundry room, outdoor kitchen and fireplace.
The property is well-equipped for the serious equestrian. There is a professional licensed horse training/boarding facility with a barn, office and tack room, a competition arena, foaling stalls, paddocks, pastures and a two-mile conditioning track. In addition, the cultivated estate produces 1,800 bales of hay. There is also a 2,000-square-foot shop, two solar systems, five wells and ample room for the construction of a second main residence, adds Meredith.
