SOLD Historic ‘Rancho Refugio’ Caldwell Ranch 449+Acres has a long history, which dates back to the early 18thcentury. In 1782, Ortega founded the Santa Barbara Presidio and finally in 1791 he settled on the 26,000-acre parcel that had been granted to him, and where he built the site’s original adobe home, which later served as a stagecoach stop. The prosperous Ortega family raised cattle and even made and sold wine.

Since then Rancho El Refugio was renowned for its splendid topography and temperate climate and once you see this beautiful setting you understand why so few places on earth are as unique as this one.

Located just north of Santa Barbara and has an abundant water supply from 15 existing water wells. It is an ideal setting for the 210+/-acres of income producing lush lemon, avocado and orange orchards and for the 4 income residences. Main Ranch House with pool offers spacious entertaining areas, beautiful mountain and distant Pacific Ocean views.
