California Stone Canyon Ranch!Must SeeTop 10 Florida Condos For Sale
Billionaire financier George R. Roberts purchased Stone Canyon Ranch in the mid 1990s for his wife Leanne Bovet-Roberts. Leanne was an award-winning equestrienne and horse breeder and this was the perfect location for implementing her dreams. Roberts engaged San Francisco architect, Ugo Sap, to design the estate that spreads over 10,000 acres, now turned into vineyards, agricultural, grazing land and world-class equestrian facility in California’s San Benito River Valley. This was where Leanne bred, raised and trained world-class, award-winning American Saddlebreds until her untimely death in May, 2003. Since then, her eldest son and daughter have carried on her legacy by taking over the management of the ranch.
Evolving from Ugo Sap’s contemporary design theme, the main residence spans 7,900 square feet of living space with an additional 5,000 square feet of private guest residences. Rich materials and finishes stand out against the open and airy spaces. The slate-roof tiles are from France, the limestone flooring is from Italy, and trellises were built with Alaskan cedar. Both the main residence and adjacent guest house were designed with high ceilings, extensive low-voltage lighting, custom cabinetry, and stone fireplaces. The main residence is built on a ridge offering 360-degree panoramas of the property and surrounding valley.
Equestrian facilities include five horse barns, two riding arenas, two training arenas and a hay barn. Situated in two separate sections known as the Lower Compound and the River Compound, the main horse barn is a 14-stall structure with two living quarters. The interior is constructed with rubber tile floors, wood partitioned stalls and wood ceiling over steel structural framing. Using the same construction and design, the Mare Barn has three stalls, tack room, storage, an incubator room and one bedroom apartment. For more information.
