A Heritage Coastal Ranch Property
144 Acres Overlooking Seascape and La Selva Beach, California



Offered at $9,800,000

The three parcels of this heritage Coastal Ranch in La Selva Beach, California preside over commanding ocean and valley views. These lands stretch all the way from Highway 1 to the North, eventually fronting on San Andreas Road to the South, and occupy the majority of the map between the nearest two exits along the highway, with rolling hills and gentle valleys to sweep you away into a pristine habitat all your own. 

Whoever has the good fortune of acquiring the La Selva Highlands can explore their options to either create a single grand coastal ranch enclave or build out all three parcels to keep or sell their choice of luxury homes, each of which can have its own guest house and Ag buildings, on spectacular acreage that overlooks the oceanfront towns of Seascape and La Selva Beach, just a few exits from the small craft Watsonville airport with Learjet or helicopter access close at hand.

The property also enjoys convenient proximity to a broad range of nearby amenities, a short walking distance to the beach gate, general store, and parks of nearby La Selva Village. And yet the domain of this unparalleled homestead is so vast that, once back on its lands you feel worlds removed, amidst surroundings that include miles of winding trails across the prairie grasslands and coastal oak woodlands that have occupied its habitat for centuries.


According to a prominent local land-use consultant, the property's Commercial Agricultural zoning protects the current parcels from being further diminished or split. And, initial research indicates that the zoning allows for an oversize home up to 10,000 SF, plus an ADU of up to 1200 SF on each developable parcel. 


This suggests that they are ideally positioned to accommodate large residences like the nearby villas to the immediate south of La Selva Beach, with the added benefit of the Agricultural land use designation, allowing freedom for a broad range of Ag-related uses, with orchards, vineyards, equestrian facilities, and multiple large outbuildings among the list of permitted level 5 uses per the County. 

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a heritage coastal property that is being offered unbroken for the first time in over a century.
