<b>BUENA VISTA:</b> The view from Rancho Monte Alegre, undeveloped acreage for sale in the foothills between Carpinteria and Summerland.

A 3,100-acre agricultural and residential ranch on the eastern edge of Carpinteria hits the online auction block on 12/14. Featuring 25 undeveloped lots — a handful of which come with approved building plans — Rancho Monte Alegre is listed for $32 million, though the auction has no reserve, according to Ojai-based listing broker Billy Long.

The property is laced with hiking and horseback riding trails and bordered by the Los Padres National Forest. More than 2,700 acres are protected by a conservation easement that restricts the land to agricultural use and open space. Online bidding for qualified, vetted buyers begins at 3 p.m. EST through Concierge Auctions and the Instant Gavel smartphone app.
