Property Description

The iconic Circle K Ranch is a palate of stunningly beautiful pastures, valleys, hills and vistas, perfect as a family compound, company retreat, or working ranch. Comprised of five parcels totaling appx. 285 +/- acres, with multiple residences, barns, gathering spaces, and recreational opportunities. Former owners include Ray & Joan Kroc's Double Arch Ranch from 1966 to 1990. After Mr. Kroc's death the ranch was purchased by Gerald Kessler of Nature's Plus Vitamins in 1990 and renamed the Circle K Ranch. The rich and storied ownership dates back to the granting of Rancho Canada De Los Pinos in 1861. Ranch buildings designed by Glenn Marchbanks Jr are nearly intact from the Double Arch days including a 17,000 SF main Lodge with 3,000 sf gathering room, dining room for 100, a commercial kitchen and offices. The 5,200 SF Conference Hall seats 62 and multi-tasks as auditorium or theater. There are 25 en-suite double occupancy lodging rooms. The Founder's Building serves as a library, with 5 bedroom suites, and ranch offices. In 1971 a new Main home was built on the highest knoll with 360-degree views of Santa Ynez Valley. Other structures include 3 single family residences, barn, paddocks and numerous fenced corrals. There is an abundance of water with two lakes, four wells and three cisterns capable of storing 90,000 gallons of water.
