Foxen Creek Ranch
This historic Foxen Canyon cattle ranch owned by the renowned Jackson Family Wine Company, has a rich and colorful past. A gently rolling and oak studded 574+ acres lies in a picturesque valley surrounded by vast ranches owned by founding families since the 1800’s. From the main residence, the horizon is unencumbered and absolutely serene with views of the San Rafael Mountains and sweeping grasslands. This classic turn-of-the-century California farm house offers over 4,000 square feet of architecturally authentic design. Rich hardwood floors, banks of French style doors and high ceilings are enhanced by abundant natural light.
A true farmhouse kitchen with Wolf Range and wood topped center island is warmed by its own brick fireplace and opens to a light filled breakfast room. The cozy den with fireplace and bath is located near the back staircase to the bedroom floor. The living and music room seamlessly flow and open to the brick patio and gazebo overlooking the water house with pond. A formal dining room through etched glass doors is located just off of the living room and also enjoys a small fireplace and game nook.
The second story features 3 bedrooms plus a sewing room and third story loft reading room and finished attic. The spacious master bedroom has dramatic views across the property. The hardwood floors continue throughout as well as beautiful wood moldings. It offers a large bath en suite with his and hers walk-in dressing rooms.
The guest bedrooms could not be more charming with sunny windows and full bath. All rooms have been beautifully appointed and inviting and have the kind of character rarely found in modern homes.
In addition to the main residence, there is a detached guest house with (2) 2 car garages located nearby. Totaling approximately 2,242 square feet, this two-story building boasts a similar style construction as the main residence and has two bedrooms and bath upstairs with balconies and a lovely living area on the first floor.
A beautiful manager’s residence is well situated away from main house and is of newer construction. This traditional ranch house is a comfortable home with living room, dining room, three bedrooms and large office plus 2 ½ baths. It has an attached two car garage. Large oaks and a romantic pond embrace the residence that looks out over a grass pasture for the resident Angus bulls.
Completing the improvements are (2) 1,980 square foot identical barns, well constructed with redwood siding and 30 foot tall gable with two wings off of the center of each structure. They are often used for entertaining when not in use for family horses.
Located in the Santa Maria Valley vineyard region, this dramatic ranch is the favorite getaway for this very busy intercontinental wine family and is a rare opportunity to own something that is a part of early California’s legacy.
