Matilija Canyon Ranch offers a unique opportunity to own a piece of history and enjoy country living surrounded by Los Padres National Forest.
Currently a private residence, boarding house and wildlife refuge, this 560+/- acre ranch has four dwellings, hiking trails, hundreds of fruit trees, a trout stream, two ponds, outdoor living areas, an aviary and fenced corrals.
The main residence is the historic Dent house built in 1908. This app. 5,000-square-foot home is a permitted boarding house with a commercial kitchen and four bedrooms with private baths.
A second app. 5,000-square-foot residence features separate living areas and bedrooms, as well as a large flex room that could be used as an event or meeting space.
There is also a two-bedroom farmhouse with a wrap-around porch and other buildings with the potential of permitting as additional guest spaces.
