Los Olivos Real Estate
Founded in the late 19th century upon the advent of the Pacific Coast Railway, and named after a nearby olive tree ranch, Los Olivos is one of the most historic and prestigious towns in the Santa Ynez Valley. It is a popular community for the rich and famous who want a taste of quiet, outdoor living and year-round enjoyment of epicurean delights. It is also one of the smallest towns, with a population just over 1,100.
Historic, prairie-style Victorian buildings still house many of the businesses in Los Olivos, and this charming heritage of tranquil country living exudes throughout the village and its eclectic boutiques, art galleries, and gourmet restaurants. Wineries, orchards, farms, and horse ranches abound in the environs of Los Olivos, as do a myriad of opportunities for outdoor adventure. The Danish village of Solvang, the town of Santa Ynez, and the scenic, rural towns of Ballard and Buellton are also minutes away, providing additional services and attractions. Los Olivos is also a relatively short drive to Santa Barbara via Highway 154 (Chumash Highway/San Marcos Pass).
