Find refuge and escape into nature at Black Canyon Ranch

Welcome to Black Canyon Ranch – a truly rare find in California, tucked away in Eastern San Diego’s scenic Santa Ysabel.  

This vast property encompasses more than 560 sprawling acres of rolling hills and old native oaks and boasts majestic views reminiscent of Montana, yet is only 14 miles from Downtown Julian and just an hour drive to San Diego’s coast. 

Luxury living room with fireplace

Built with your ease in mind in every detail, the ranch is home to a certified landing strip and hangar with the capacity to hold four planes or three helicopters, a short 15 minute flight from Carlsbad Airport. 

Comprising 7,500 square feet of understated opulence, the main home is perfectly situated atop a mountainside overlooking Lake Sutherland and offers a traditional cabin feel adorned with modern luxuries. This main home boasts 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms, all curated with a cabin feel. 

Primary bedroom with scenic views of the mountains

Take in the views from the grand windows featured in all of the ranch’s rooms, including the study. The master bedroom opens up to a breathtaking wraparound deck, allowing you to privately take in the peaceful essence of the ranch life.

Flooded with warmth and light, the intimate and comfortable living areas offer unparalleled views of the great wide open. Exposed beams and stone walls embellish all areas and bring the natural landscape closer to you. Once the sun goes down, you’ll notice that the stars shine brighter from the wraparound deck.

The four additional residences on the ranch are of equal workmanship, quality, and boast their own distinct style and personality. A true working ranch, the property includes a greenhouse, workshop and barn, three wells, and four ponds. The self-sustaining, solar-powered infrastructure was built with the utmost care and intention and has been impeccably maintained through the years. 

Black Canyon Ranch’s versatility as a private family compound, unique recreational property, or corporate/business retreat provides many opportunities catered to your specific needs.
