Rancho San Leandro is situated atop a ridge in Montecito, commanding stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and Santa Ynez Mountains. This historic property boasts as its centerpiece one of the oldest and most authentic adobe homes in California. The adobe was built before 1850 as the principal residence of the Dominguez family and served as the ranch house of the original 430-acre Rancho San Leandro, the largest land grant in Montecito at that time. In the late 1800s the land was rechristened ‘Ennisbrook’ and, in the early 20th century, it was owned by Olympic polo gold-medalist Elmer Boeseke, who played host to Fred Astaire, Clark Gable, and Darryl Zanuck, among other famous polo celebrities. It was also used as the original clubhouse of the Santa Barbara Polo Club.
The previous steward of this unique hacienda has maintained the historic elegance of the property, restoring the original adobe while lovingly bringing the entire property into the 21st century with newly constructed accommodations, sensitively designed to complement the original adobe construction. The new owners have the convenient location of being just minutes from Montecito's Upper and Lower Villages with incredible privacy in truly idyllic, natural surroundings.
