Beautiful California - Land for the Horse Lover
California Horse Properties For Sale
The demand for California horse property has soared
in the last few years from buyers wanting more months of outdoor
training and riding without all the cold or extreme heat in other states.
Although with the real estate crunch in 2007 through 2009, real estate
has slowed, buyers are still actively looking for California
horse property, horse farms, and ranches for sale.
Fun in the sun attracts the sun worshipers to California which has been
representative of a dramatic trend to embrace the alternative lifestyle
that country living offers – a lifestyle that features privacy, cleaner
air, lower traffic, lower crime, and upholds values promoting greater
health, and less stress of extreme cold or heat.
Finding that special piece of rural real estate is fast becoming the
American Dream, and nowhere is the dream more alive than in California!
For some, the dream may be for an acre or two - just enough room for a
garden, or a horse, or maybe both. For others, the dream may be for land
that extends as far as the eye can see. And to what end? For privacy,
peace and quiet, a little bit of elbow room, clean air, billions of
stars in the night's sky, a chance to have their horses in their own
backyard, maybe even alpacas or ostriches or some other exotic breed.
Whatever the specifics of the vision are, you can bet on one thing:
there's romance involved, something stirred from deep within the
recesses of a collective unconscious that knew and tamed the wild west
in an earlier century, one that retains the pioneering spirit, and
continues to treasure the expansive riches of the great outdoors and
intimate involvement with Mother Earth and with nature.
In the early 90s, a remarkable number of urban Americans throughout the
U.S. began relocating their primary homes to small towns and rural
communities - a trend that continues to this day. This growth trend
coincides with one of the most significant technological innovations of
the twentieth century that made access to the internet as commonplace as
television network access. As a result, and enhanced by national cell
phone coverage, wireless connectivity, broadband, and Bluetooth, and an
endless array of software products such as PCAnywhere and GoToMyPC
enabling access to essential data files from off-site locations, the
'90's ushered in a new phenomenon called the virtual office. Many
professionals discovered that they were no longer bound to the urban
business setting and the daily commute to a specified work place. They
discovered that they could do their work from almost anywhere. And this
meant that they suddenly had much greater flexibility in terms of where
they chose to live. Other professionals discovered entrepreneurial
opportunities made feasible by the new technology that could be pursued
from any location. All of this has led numbers of young professional
people to relocate in the hopes of finding a greater quality of life for
themselves and their families.
The extensive search for California land for sale, California ranches
for sale, California horse property, and rural real estate in California
is underwritten by a search for lifestyle. Lifestyle comes out of the
values that all share in common, regardless whether the dream of country
living is about riding a horse across open space, rounding up cattle,
undertaking an agricultural venture, or simply allowing the beauty and
peace and quiet inspire artistic expression. All share the values of
having fresh air and clean water, of having a direct relationship with
the land itself and with nature and taking pleasure in the changing
seasons and the natural rhythms, of being good stewards of the land and
doing whatever is possible to minimize pollution and negative
Rural lifestyle also places value on a more relaxed pace with less
stress, more time with family and friends, more laughter and play, more
fun. Urban life is all about going somewhere and getting somewhere.
Every thing is out there in front or in the future somewhere. Rural
lifestyle is about being able to say with all sincerity, I am exactly
where I want to be, right now!
There’s a guy who moved to a small town in the California central coast
area after many years in the real estate business in Los Angeles. He set
himself up a business providing horse transportation for local
equestrians. When asked how he’s doing he always has the same answer:
Just another day in paradise! His answer pretty much sums up what rural
lifestyle is all about.
