Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver’s $4.7 million ranch retreat in Carpinteria, California may be beautiful and historic, but buyers are apparently not interested. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s former ranch retreat was placed on the market in January, but no offers on the “sprawling estate property” have been forthcoming, Radar Online reports.
The ranch once occupied by Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger is situated on 25 acres of land in the Monte Alegro tract in the “historic” Santa Barbara area. The couple listed their $4.7 million home privately with one of the top realtors in the area, John Vogel Maria is reportedly willing to “take a hit” on the cost of the home she once shared with Schwarzenegger and sell the luxurious home for $4.49 million.
“Maria’s Ranch Monte Alegro site is an albatross around her neck and she can do without it,” a source told Radar Online. ExtraTV reports Shriver allegedly feels the home she shared with Arnold Schwarzenegger has “bad energy.” Maria Shriver reportedly wanted to built a home on a portion of the Monte Alegro tract after her divorce from Schwarzenegger, but is now ready to move on and just wants the property sold.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver ranch listing details as posted on the Kerry Mormann and Associates realty website:
“Part of the legendary Rancho Monte Alegre in Carpinteria, this 25 acre parcel has a Craftsman home, barn, two ponds and ocean views. The classic 1880′s craftsman needs some remodeling and TLC, but it has irreplaceable history. It was a former hangout of many celebrities including Clark Gable, John Wayne, Jimmy Stewart and more.”
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver’s Santa Barbara ranch is located at 1915 Santa Monica Road.
The Monte Alegro ranch listed for sale by Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver boasts a 100 year old barn complete with both an apartment and a studio.
Avocado and lemon trees as well as a fully-stocked fish pond add to the simplistic feel of the ranch, coaxing potential owners to slow down and enjoy a bit of nature’s bounty.
