Retreat away from the world's turmoil to Neverland
December 12, 2012 - Santa Ynez
Where can you find a place that has no traffic, clean air, perfect temperatures and can never be spoiled? Michael Jackson chose this area for his famous ranch, Neverland.
Demand exceeds the supply of existing properties and zoning does not allow for more development. Still, the prices are a great value with Santa Barbara only 33 miles away.
The hidden nature of this secluded area makes it almost crime free. There is no need to lock your house and your keys can be left in the car. The schools boast distinguished credentials for those who live in this privileged area.
Only 2+ hours from LAX, the Santa Ynez Valley is filled with more than a hundred vineyards and tasting rooms with world class wines, expansive ranches and heritage Oak trees on golden grasslands.
Often mistaken for the neighboring Neverland, the MJ Ranch is protected in a bowl created by a low mountain that cradles the ranch holding the energy inside. There, the most magnificent, ancient Oaks are found guarding this serene pocket of heaven on earth.
Wildlife abounds on this land while the owners enjoy the amenities found in upper class resorts. The best materials from around the world are used to create this luxury estate on 476 acres.
Natural resources sit idle on three separate legal parcels, with 4 million dollars of white sand and an indication of oil below, on one parcel. Close to one hundred acres of land prime for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, on another and the main estate residence perfectly placed on the third.
Price: $22,500,000 for 476 acres or each parcel can be purchased separately.
11,000 sq ft. in 3 areas: Living home, Entertaining home and attached Guest home;
