Conveniently located about midway between Los Angeles and San Franciso, urban dwellers who long for wide open spaces can find homes on acreage, land for sale, and horse property in an area with a rural feel and atmosphere.
Horse property can vary from 5 acres to as much as 500 acres or more. Vineyards for sale often come with a main residence, some extremely luxurious, and outbuildings such as barns and helps quarters. Rural real estate is still in high demand even in a slowing real estate market. Land for sale that is zoned for agriculture may actually have appreciated in the past year as cost for food continues to soar. Many buyers who seek rural real estate are looking for a property that produces some kind of income - grapes, citrus, row crops, etc. Blueberries have recently become a specialty item. Horse property that offers a commercial value can also be found in the California Central Coast.
