“With its two ocean-facing hilltop estates surrounded by extensively cultivated agricultural land, hundreds of acres of orchards, an active cattle range and vast areas of open space, El Rancho Tajiguas is the perfect marriage of utmost luxury and natural beauty and has historical traces back to the of King of Spain, Carlos III,” said Solakian. “The sheer awe-inspiring scale of this land is surprising in such close proximity to the cultural centers of Santa Barbara and Montecito.”
