Welcome to Rancho Monte Alegre—the happy mountain ranch. Once a gathering place for Hollywood royalty including Robert Mitchum and John Wayne, this beautiful land offers a rare opportunity to design your ideal secluded home and lifestyle, on one of the last untouched locations along California's Central Coast.
The vision for this community can be summed up in two words: exclusivity and privacy. The historic 2,800+ acre property offers incredible ocean view estates ranging from 40 to 200 acres. Lots feature stunning ocean, coastline, and mountain views and are located in an exclusive private gated community. Enjoy access to 2,800+ acres of deeded open space and a multi-use trail system. Limited only by your imagination, these lots can include a main house, guesthouse, pool cabana, farm worker dwelling and barns allowing for family compounds.
After Lots 12 & 16 sold in December 2021, the remaining “Back Ranch” is now on full display. The Back Ranch consists of over 2,800 acres with 8 buildable lots offering many opportunities. It is accessed by a significant bridge over Santa Monica Creek, where you enter a private kingdom with spectacular ocean and mountain views, miles of trails, waterfalls, and swimming holes right in your own backyard.
Enter Lot 17 by crossing over the Santa Monica Creek by way of a significant entryway bridge (mentioned earlier), an engineering highlight in and of itself. Lot 17 is one of two remaining crown jewels on the ranch and features gorgeous ocean and mountain views, a large building envelope, building areas for a barn and guesthouse, additional buildings and includes utilities, municipal water plus ability to have a private well.
Lot 18 sits a little further up the road, but is truly remarkable. The lot boasts approximately 160 acres, equally beautiful ocean and mountain views, a large building envelope, building areas for a barn and guesthouse, agricultural envelope for orchards, additional buildings and includes utilities, municipal water plus ability to have a private well.
Stretching clear back as far as the eye can see, Rancho Monte Alegre is bordered by Los Padres National Forest and has private access to the Franklin trail—the gateway to experiencing Los Padres National Forest . This is an incredibly rare opportunity for the right buyer. Embrace the entire vision for this historic ranch or enjoy an equally amazing option by settling into either Lot 17 or Lot 18, which are being offered individually.
