World-class wineries and vineyards, sprawling equestrian ranches, and six small, delightful rural towns – Ballard, Buellton, Los Alamos, Los Olivos, Santa Ynez, and Solvang — comprise the Santa Ynez Valley. Offering real estate that is unmatched in the region, it is close to the perfect combination of rural-agricultural heritage combined with a sophisticated “wine country” ambiance. Just a scenic half-hour drive over the Coastal Range from Santa Barbara, the valley was initially renowned for its thoroughbred horse ranches, although most recently it has become revered for its exceptional wines. Its eclectic population – a diverse mix of cowboys, ranchers, winemakers, and city slickers — is also a reason for its popularity. Real estate in the Santa Ynez Valley is a hidden gem.
