Situated on 12.5 acres, the property features a 4,000 square foot main home consisting of 3 bedrooms & 3 baths, including two en-suite bedrooms. Built in 1860, in their early days known as the Ballard Station, the adobe portions of the home served for 26 years as a stop on the San Francisco to Yuma stagecoach run. A large kitchen & formal dining room with a potbelly stove emit an inviting warm ambiance. The spacious living room features wood floors, high ceilings, fireplace for gatherings & entertaining opens to the original "Wells Fargo" room--where travelers were greeted upon arrival. There are two 2-car garages with a shop & equipment shed with room for tractors & implements. A separate guest house features 1 bedroom, 2 baths & combination private office & laundry room. The large great room has a kitchen opening to a living room containing a fireplace & windows with ample natural light & beautiful vistas. Grounds include a sparkling pool adjacent the guest house, seasonal "little creek" running traversing the property, wisteria vines wrapping around trellises, a 100 year old climbing ("La Marque") rose, several porches surrounding both dwellings, & enough useable land to plant a vineyard, install horse facilities, or both. This piece of history is on the market for the first time since 1946 & is located in the Award Winning Los Olivos School District.
