Nestled on the banks of the San Benito River, Paicines, California is known for its pleasingly dry and temperate climate, bountiful farmland, imposing landscapes, and the soaring majesty of the nearby Pinnacles National Park. In the heart of one of California's most enchanting yet undiscovered counties lies a magnificent equestrian ranch property. Blessed by an abundance of natural beauty, Stone Canyon Ranch is surely the crown jewel of this breathtaking region. Long renowned as one of the finest horse ranches in the country, the estate encompasses 10,000 pristine acres.
Gloriously brought to life through the vision of noted architect Ugo Sap, this transcendent compound is designed to provide stunning views, maximum seclusion, and a communion with nature. "It's an ideal place for those who enjoy privacy, the outdoors, horses, wildlife, and open spaces," enthuses Steven Mavromihalis of Pacific Union International. "A property of this size and splendor only comes along once in a great while, and thanks to its world-class construction and central location, it is truly without equal."
Stunning architectural details include a French slate roof, Italian limestone flooring, and Alaskan cedar trellises that provide a oneness with the home's natural surroundings. Stone walls, solid mahogany doors and virtually every other architectural detail reinforce the simple luxury and innate majesty of this truly regal dwelling.
Perfectly sited atop a prominent ridgeline to take advantage of spectacular 360-degree views, the main residence spans 7,900 square feet of living space with an additional 5,000 square feet of private guest residences--all with open floor plans and flooded with an abundance of natural light. Masterful design, landscaped gardens, a tennis court, and a pool make the estate an oasis for both formal entertainment and intimate gatherings.
Close to the resort destinations of Carmel and Pebble Beach, yet only an hour's drive from Silicon Valley, this unique property is a monument to elegant design and casual ranch living.
