One of the great things about Los Angeles is that in just a few miles you can escape the city and experience a whole other way of life. The beauty and relaxation of the American West is alive and well at Peacock Hill Ranch, a horse lover’s dream. Down the road from the Angeles National Forest and bordering miles of trails at Hansen Dam, it’s hard to believe this 7-acre idyllic country escape is just 30 minutes from all the city of LA has to offer.
Built in 1939, owned by the daughter of the original Sky King and once home to a steed named Silver of The Lone Ranger fame, this sprawling residential compound with a working horse ranch is a private Ponderosa of Hollywood history.
Enjoy pastoral panoramas from every vantage point of this expansive property. A serene hillside pasture is the breathtaking backdrop for the rambling main residence and two guesthouses that are designed in a sophisticated hunting lodge-style. Warm and rustic materials like redwood, brick, slate and wrought iron compliment the natural environment. Flagstone steps lead to a swimming pool surrounded by mature trees and landscaping.
Design elements that enhance the western ambiance include an antlered entry portico, peg-and-groove hardwood flooring, exposed beams and columns, carved corbels, skylights, adobe fireplace, vaulted ceiling, and custom vanities. French doors throughout open to wraparound redwood decking and each window frames a captivating picture. A country chef’s kitchen with Viking appliances, a romantic master suite with fireside lounge area, a generous dining room, en-suite guest quarters and snooker room make this showplace an entertainer’s delight as well as a private retreat.
The full-service boarding and training facilities include: a Main Barn with 7 Stalls and 5 Paddocks; a Shed Row Barn with 8 Stalls; 26 Sheltered Pipe Corrals; 5 Tack Rooms and 3 Sheds; 1 Grain Room; 2 Hay Barns; 3 Round Pens; 100 x 200 lit Arena; 4 acres of fenced pastures; wash rack; foaling stall. A conditional use permit for 100 horses and 501c(3) equine sanctuary designation offers a “stable” investment opportunity at this one-of-a-kind horse heaven.
