Rancho Los Gatos


2.5 BATH


Rancho Los Gatos

Tucked away in a beautiful canyon at the bottom of San Marcos Pass, Rancho Los Gatos is located only 2 miles from freeway access, but feels worlds apart in a beautiful mountain setting. A long private driveway leads up this recently constructed modern contemporary home, which has a small view of the ocean and islands on clear days.  Enjoy soaking in the sunshine on the poolside lounge chairs, or escape the summer heat and read a book in the screened in living room. With such peaceful surroundings and welcoming ambiance you’ll find yourself searching for excuses not to leave.

The master bedroom is located on the upper wing of the house, with a large walk-in closet, en-suite bath with soaking tub. Two guest bedrooms are on the lower wing of the house, with a jack-and-jill bathroom, a layout very well suited to small families. There is a third bedroom with twin beds, and a separate office with a sofa sleeper. With 3300 square feet on over 7 acres, this beautiful home is like your own private retreat.

What we love:

  • Floor-to-ceiling windows make the most of the natural surroundings and bring the beauty of the outdoors into the indoor space.
  • The screened-in living room is even better than an open air space, with a comfortable seating area, wet bar and a layout that lets in all of the breezes and none of the bugs.
  • Original art and beautiful sculptural pieces make for aesthetic enjoyment of the interior along with the landscape.
  • Being so close to wine country in the Santa Ynez valley makes for easy exploration of the entire area.
