The Spanish Style Ranch That Started It All !!!
Besides being up high on a cliff with panoramic views this 1936 Spanish style ranch has interesting bones and historical bragging rights.
Designed by Cliff May who I am reading had mad influence in the design of California-style Spanish architecture. Plus, this sprawling Hacienda is one of “Southern California’s early pastoral ranches.”
It all started with a multimillionaire banker’s brother who had May build him a home. From then on his influence flourished. Cliff May is credited for Spanish style and California ranch styles.
Have a look at this 1930’s, kind of first family Spanish style ranch that started is all.
If you live in the area and want views “from the mountains to the sea” and a piece of history, this may be just the place for you.
Romantic old world charming touches. A center courtyard marries inside and outside living beautifully. House Hunters will like the meandering path down to the pool and mature landscaping.
Listing details: Hand crafted of masonry and heavy timbers like the California Missions.
What do you think? Doesn’t this look like the original bathroom?
This has to be the sweetest spot in the house!
Some historical photos add to the legendary mystique.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope it was terrific!
I always enjoy your comments and happy to know how much you like Spanish style.
Oooollllaaaa!!! I am in love! Of course I have a fondness for California Spanish Style. I grew up near a Mission. Which I loved to visit often, besides the beach.
That is such an interesting house story Candy. I remember the Ponderosa too of course and dreamed of living there too. Here’s to you hitting the jackpot!
I have been in love with big old Spanish style ranch houses ever since my first look at the Ponderosa on the old Bonanza TV program. I have always wanted a court yard and back in the day when I had daydreams of building a home I would design houses styled like this one with a courtyard (but much smaller). If I win the lotto I will be contact about this one…. Candy
So happy to hear from you Becca. The pathway on the property leading to the pool seems to be one of the most popular aspects of this Spanish style ranch.
Love this house and especially the pathway to the pool! Gorg!
Wish we could see what the new owners will do with this. I hope they keep the property with the path down to the pool.
You often think of things I wish I had said Anj, thanks for your daily comments on my blog that I look forward to.
this house just screams out door parties to me, or a family reunion would be awesome there lol thanks for sharing Sue luff it
This is another beautiful house. I like that bathroom. If it had a bigger bath tub it would be perfect for sure.
I’ll take the pool too and might add a pool house or cabana. Love your comments.
That’s two for two that want the bathroom remodeled.
I agree with Carolann. The bathroom doesn’t “fit” the house is gorgeous. My favorite part is the landscaping down to the pool. I could spend my days down there for sure!
The landscape is stunning. I am in love with that fountain out back!!! That bathroom has to go though lol. The rest of the place is stunning! Great find!
