NEED 1 to 3 BEDROOM HOUSE/GUEST HOUSE FOR WORK/RENT ON HORSE PROPERTY (THOUSAND OAKS TO PALOS VERDE OR NEVADA)

PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE POSTING BEFORE CONSIDERING RESPONDING. I HAVE OUTLINED MY

NEEDS AND WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR VERY CAREFULLY AND REQUEST THAT IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A

PROPERTY THAT PROVIDES SPECIFICALLY WHAT IS DETAILED - DO NOT WASTE YOURS OR MY

VALUABLE TIME PLEASE - - - NO APARTMENTS - SHARES OR ROOMS - CONDOS OR LOFTS AND MUST

BE ON A SUITABLE HORSE PROPERTY.....

SEEKING A HOUSE / GUESTHOUSE LOCATED ON A HORSE PROPERTY/RANCH FOR WORK/RENT CONSIDERATION - anywhere between Thousand Oaks and Palos Verde Peninsula preferably. I am also seeking to extend that area to include the state of Nevada as I am willing to relocate. I would appreciate a two or three bedroom and 1 and a half or 2 full bath(s) but can strongly consider a one bedroom if "spacious" enough. A full kitchen is also very much desired - I am a fanatical cook - chef actually - having owned my own restaurant for many years and would be considered a "master chef". I am also a "semi-retired" general contractor and builder with more than 50 years of experience.
I have typically used a second bedroom as an office and a third bedroom as my music/recording room/studio and have a very large desk I need space for - but again a 1 bedroom if big enough could work - - I would also appreciate a garage/shop and/or "work space" if possible. I have been restoring vintage stoves and antique furniture for many years, I'm a master woodworker and furniture maker, and desire a location where I can continue with my projects and facilitate any work for the property. I have a full compliment of tools and equipment in excess of twenty five thousand dollars for almost any type of carpentry, electrical and plumbing work - woodworking, refinishing, restoration, repair and all general construction.

The biggest consideration is to be able to have my 6 and a half year old Pereuvian Paso and 4 year old Azteca on the same property with me - I adopted the Paso 6 years ago after he was rescued from a feed lot auction - the Azteca mare has been with me for about 6 months.

What I would like to accomplish is to be on a property that I can help maintain and provide caretaker/handyman services - in addition to caring for and working with other horses and/or livestock as a possible consideration for some of the rent - or all if a position is available. I am not a master trainer but have been involved and working with horses for more than 55 years including being part of the BLM Mustang roundups in Wyoming since 1992 - and have a very in depth knowledge of them in just about every sense.

I had been managing an almost 600 acre ranch in Lake Hughes for the past year and a half - tending to a herd of 7 Scottish Highland cows and other livestock including KuneKune pigs - chickens - goats and additional horses. I have also effected over $150,000.00 of construction needs, remodeling and renovations to a great deal of the ranch.
The owners of the property are arranging a sale of the ranch and I am seeking a new position of a similar nature.

Possibly a slightly tall order to fill - but I have to believe there is a "situation" out there that someone has and can work out for us. I will mention that I also have a cat, as well and two 21 month old German Shepherd pups - all in the pics

A place approximately 1,000 square feet could be suitable and of course more would be ideal. I am very open to "rent/work" possibilities but being prudent rent has to be a strong "minimal" consideration as I am on a "fixed income".... The work and knowledge I bring to the table will be more than substantial.......

I appreciate anyone's time and consideration and hope I will be successful in this endeavor - - - IF THIS LISTING IS STILL ACTIVE - THEN I AM STILL LOOKING - BUT PLEASE - AS IT SAYS AT THE BEGINNING - ONLY IF YOU HAVE A PROPERTY AS DESCRIBED..
