Starlight Ranch - Lebec, CA

This beautiful 4,800 SF home sits on 20 acres, nestled in a tranquil canyon among wildlife, oaks and wildflowers.  The home has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms with a solar heated indoor pool and spa.
Located in Lebec, California, directly across interstate 5 from the famed Tejon Ranch and near the edge of the Los Padres National Forest, the area is known for pleasingly dry and temperate climate, bountiful recreational opportunities and inspiring landscapes.
This 20 acre parcel is extremely private and secluded.  No other homes are visible from the property.  In fact, the nearest home is about a half mile away and is hidden behind a nearby hillside.  The home is situated in the crotch of a canyon, surrounded by beautiful hills.  The site was originally owned by a soils engineer to perfectly integrate the property with its surroundings.  Water runoff from the nearby hillsides runs naturally around the edges of the property, never causing an issue or problem for the homestead.
A separate 1,200 SF structure that has a raw framed interior with plumbing, electricity and 3/4 bath in place can be finished to serve as a guest house, manager's house, office or studio.

There is plenty of room for farm animals including a chicken coop and a two stall barn with hay storage, complete with a fenced pasture.

Solar panels provide hot water for the pool and spa with propane backup for clouded over days.  A commercial water heater, water softener and reverse osmosis water filtration system conditions the home's water systems.

 The home features two garages, one attached two car garage and one 840 SF detached two car garage with adequate area for a workshop and a loft.

The gourmet kitchen features maple cabinets, and quality appliances all around.  The cook in your family will appreciate the Dacor oven with ceramic cook top along with a separate Advantium oven and a bread warmer to fill out the cooking equipment.  The kitchen also includes a family sized Samsung refrigerator and a Kitchen Aid dishwasher, a double sink with disposal and trash compactor.

Family spaces in the house include a breakfast room off of the kitchen, dining room with fireplace, living room with fireplace and a mud room/computer room along with an upstairs family room.  The upstairs family room has two large windows overlooking the indoor pool and spa area and a fireplace.
