Located in the heart of California's Central Coast, Trilogy at Rice Ranch is a luxurious active lifestyle retreat that puts residents within easy reach of sandy beaches, scenic surroundings, and charming, old-town Orcutt.
Orcutt is an unincorporated community of about 30,000 in northern Santa Barbara County that was originally built in 1904 as a townsite along the Pacific Coast Railroad. Though it's retained the rustic ambiance of a frontier town, it also celebrates the modern vintners of the region and is a local destination for dining, shopping, and culture.
The 350-acre Trilogy at Rice Ranch is situated a few miles to the southeast amid lush meadows, woodlands, and hills. Woodlands, LLC started developing the property in 2010 and later turned it over to Shea Homes, which is currently building new residences.
Homebuyers can choose a homesite, floor plan, and menu of options that includes a den, gathering room or home theater. Five collections and varied floor plans range from 1,428 to 3,403 square feet with two to six bedrooms, two to four baths, and a garage built for two or three cars. Both new and resale homes are available. Upon completion, the property will feature about 755 residences.
The Mediterranean climate of the Central Coast region—year-round temperatures average in the 60s and 70s—is ideal for an active lifestyle and outdoor activities, which are readily available within the community and beyond.
Sports and Leisure
At the center of Trilogy at Rice Ranch is a newly built 26-acre park and sports complex. A soccer field and two softball/baseball diamonds invite friendly games and intramural teams. Homeowners can exercise and socialize their dogs at one of two bark parks, or take in the scenery along four miles of hiking and biking trails.
Nearby attractions include camping and boating facilities, a miles-long sandy shoreline, and the members-only Santa Maria Country Club that features an 18-hole championship golf course, tennis courts, and a heated swimming pool, along with wading pools for the kids.
A short drive away, the town of Orcutt offers other diversions. Visitors can tour a museum or art gallery, take in a theater performance or enjoy a delicious meal at one of several restaurants in town. Wine shops and premium wine bars showcase products from regional vineyards, which might just inspire a day trip through Central Coast wine country.
Santa Barbara is about 60 miles to the south. Known as the "American Riviera," it's a tourist destination, a center for the performing arts and a mecca for those who love fun in the sun. There are plenty of reasons to make the drive, whether it's for the International Film Festival, Summer Solstice Parade, the French Festival or many other popular events throughout the year.
Active adults of all ages are invited to become part of this lifestyle community with its ideal central California location, mild climate, stunning local attractions, and amenities, and the great outdoors as far as the eye can see.
