Templeton Land may be the best choice if you want a ranch. There are several large and small acres parcels. You will also be able to find single family lots.
Templeton Land and Lots can be found inland about thirty minutes to the Pacific Ocean. Paso Robles is to the North, Atascadero to the South and Cambria to the West.
Templeton Land consists of agriculture acres often used for vineyards, and is also used for cattle grazing. There are smaller single family lots and commercial lots closer to the downtown, along with Multi-Family lots, used for apartments or more than one home on the same parcel.
If you decide you do not want Templeton Land or Lots, to build, there are several Templeton Homes for sale.
