Santa Ynez Valley is a bucolic rural upscale community a short drive from Santa Barbara, California. The valley is a composite of world class vineyards, horse farms, cattle ranches and ranchettes and is the second largest wine growing region in California. Local residents include many entertainment notables and senior executive members of all types of industry and commerce.


Ranch History

In the 1970’s, a well-known couple in the Hunter / Jumper world, Peter and Judy Whiting moved up from the Hope Ranch Riding Club and Stables to a river front ranch outside of Solvang, California. Peter, who was an ex-farrier named it the Anvil Ranch. When the current owner purchased the property (circa 2000), it then became part of the renowned River Edge Farm, a leading breeding farm of Thoroughbred horses. The farm was home to ‘Pirate’s Bounty’, three time leading California sire, and top stallions; ‘Benchmark’, ‘Bertrando’ and ‘Tribal Rule’. Their offspring have raced over 100 stake horses nationwide.

The Property

The Anvil Ranch is comprised of 3 parcels totaling 45+/- acres and is part of the acclaimed River Edge Farm (and is being offered separately as Offering No. 4 of the whole ranch package). Located within the famous tree lined corridor between Solvang and Buellton, the ranch is comprised of two older residences, a 28-stall barn, a hay barn, round pen, maintenance building, horse shelters, and several irrigated and fenced pastures. Water is supplied by 3 private water wells; 1 domestic and 2 agricultural. Most of the improvements were built in or before the 1970’s and reflect their age; however, we have priced the property accordingly and it represents a very good value. Its convenient location provides easy access to Highway 101and is close to all the premiere vet facilities and other historic equestrian ranches.
