California. It’s impossible to say the name of the place itself with a smile in your voice, instantly conjuring images of palm trees and beaches and rugged high desert. At some point in our lives, I’m willing to bet we’ve all been a California dreamer, envisioning ourselves living that laid-back West Coast lifestyle, dazzled by that place where the summer never goes away.

For those of us for whom the dream isn’t fleeting but fully realized, I’ve got a little spot you might want to look at. DeCaro Auctions International will be holding a live absolute auction on Saturday, August 11, 2018 for this 11-acre equestrian estate located in the exclusive Los Ranchos Estates of Coto de Caza in California’s Orange County, located at 31952 Apuesto Way. If by “absolute auction” you’re thinking “highest bid wins with no reserve,” you’re absolutely right. Start scrounging around in the couch and the cup holders for your spare change, kids. The dream’s not dead.

Let’s take a little flyover:

Located in a gated community in Trabuco Canyon, the estate boasts a seven-stall barn with plenty of equestrian amenities — that’s a horse for every day of the week, people! Complete with a tack room, riding ring, hot walker and turnout paddocks, this little home barn has everything you could need. Bonus: there’s direct access to a trail system right from the property!

When you’ve wandered the Orange County hills on horseback to your heart’s content, you can retire to this exquisite manor home while your horses relax in their paddocks: we’re sure you’ll find something to entertain yourself inside with the gourmet kitchen, two-story family room, master suite (complete with fireplace and resort-worthy bathroom) or six-car garage.

And let’s talk about these outdoor spaces: not only is there a pool complete with Jacuzzi, but there’s a casual little Zen garden standing by to soothe all your worries away. Three words for you, people: living the dream.

The estate is open for previews beginning Saturday, July 21st from 1:00-4:00 pm, and will continue every Saturday and Sunday from 1:00-4:00 pm leading up to the auction on August 11th. A final preview will be offered the day before the auction on Friday, August 10th. Private tours are also available by calling DeCaro Auctions International at 1.800.332.3767.
