The Ranch at Lookout Drive
Most everyone knows the term, “Gentleman Farmer,” a person who farms mainly for pleasure rather than profit. How about living the life of a “Gentleman Rancher,” with horse shelters for your favorite mares, complete with a misting system, tack shed, Litton lighting, and miles of trails in Malibou Creek for hiking, mountain biking, and of course, horseback riding. No need to trailer in your horses, which most residents have to do when going for a ride.
Tucked into the hillside of the Santa Monica Mountains lies such a property, waiting for just the right person ready to begin this amazing adventure!
Just ambling up the brick walkway, with its abundance of greenery, lets visitors know they are in for a delightful surprise. The living room, with oak flooring and wood-burning fireplace, opens to a charming patio, as does the family room, with Saltillo tile floors and French doors facing the hills. The perfectly remodeled kitchen, also tiled, boasts stainless appliances, including a wine cooler. A granite breakfast bar and warm pine cabinetry create an inviting atmosphere for true country living in this three-bedroom, single-story ranch home.
The most enticing space may be the master retreat, which highlights a spa tub and steam shower completely encased in travertine. This spacious bedroom, with French doors, leads to such an inviting private terrace, you may never want to leave.
The two guest rooms also lead to adjacent verandas, revealing again how this home personifies California indoor/outdoor living! The garage, with its converted guest unit, provides room for any friends eager for a relaxing visit. Outside are several decks and terraces for both dining and enjoying the magnificent views, one with a fountain, another an above-ground spa.
And as the sun sets, nothing satisfies more than walking out to the back garden for a snack from the avocado, lime, lemon, or peach trees, or perhaps filling a basket of blackberries from the bushes along the fence….because isn’t that what “Gentleman Ranchers” do?
