The magnificent Rancho San Carlos, a 237 acre estate property that for nearly 100 years has been under the ownership of one family. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire a unique property of unprecedented grand scale, exceptional architecture, and prestigious historical significance. The sprawling hilltop Monterey Colonial manor was designed by noted architect Reginald Johnson in 1931 with an approx. 29,483 sq. ft. exquisite main residence comprised of over thirty rooms. Infused with an atmosphere of sophistication and refinement, the grand home is astutely sited on two natural terraces, and by planning the formal living rooms around a central courtyard and placing the Master and family bedroom wings on the upper terrace, he effectively created a spatial separation that afforded privacy, calm and exceptional views.  Additional features include 10 residential cottages, an office, producing orchards, and extensive equestrian facilities.
