The Griffin Ranch is an incredible 40-acre Estate, a private oasis within a walled & gated compound. Nestled below the Santa Rosa Mountains and features diverse terrain - from elegant horse stables and a racetrack to a private lake and pool. The Main House and surrounding cottages were designed in the mid 80's by noted Cuban architect Waldo Fernandez using legendary fashion designer Yves St. Laurent's Marrakesh home as inspiration. The buildings are an eclectic blend of Californian modern with Moroccan accents, includes a main residence with pool, spa and 4 guest casitas. The elevated site provides spectacular south facing views across a 2.5-acre lake to the mountains from the house, casitas & pool. Accommodations also includes a 4bdrm/3bath Guest house, a 2bdrm/2bath Staff Quarters and a one-bedroom apartment. There is a total of 14 bedrooms and 16 baths in all - rent all or part!
