Access to this secluded property is via a 1000-yard driveway lined with sycamore trees. This driveway takes you past a rose-lined boundary fence, the prime, south-facing hillside, neighbouring vineyards and immediate views of the the main house, olive grove and the foothills of Figueroa Mountain in the distance.
The property has a functional olive orchard comprising of 4,500 certified organic olive trees, all under a drip irrigation system that is fed by the property's well. The rolling hills of Santa Ynez Valley share the same latitude, climate, and conditions as the renowned olive regions of Italy and Spain. The olive orchard varietals include: Frantoio, Itrana, Leccino, San Felice, Maurino, Grappolo, Pendolino, Manzanillo, and Sevillano.
ADDITIONAL LAND FOR PLANTING
Figueroa Farms is located in the prestigious Santa Ynez Valley Happy Canyon AVA. This was the region’s third federally recognized growing region and produces sublime Rhone and Bordeaux varietal fruits. The south-facing hillside is 40 acres of prime wine making soil and a new owner might explore the potential for planting grape vines or perhaps increasing the olive tree planting.
There is plenty of room on the property to indulge either of these additional type plantings or both and also to construct a winery building. Alternatively a new owner might want to use the additional area to pursue their equestrian interests.
