San Luis Obispo County Supervisor Bruce Gibson’s Cayucos ranch is up for sale for nearly $2.6 million.

The property at 1410 Cottontail Creek Road in rural Cayucos near Whale Rock Reservoir consists of 170 acres and is called Encino Grande Ranch. Most of the land is devoted to cattle grazing, but the property also has 800 mature orange trees and a variety of 250 mid-sized and 500 newly planted citrus trees. The property includes a 3,341-square-foot, 3-bedroom home built in 1993.

Gibson declined to say whether the sale of the property is the result of his divorce. Early this year, Gibson’s wife, Dr. Grace Crittenden, filed for divorce as a result of an affair Gibson had with his legislative aide.

“I’m not inclined to talk to the newspaper about my personal life,” he said.

However, he did say that he continues to live in his North Coast supervisor’s district. The listing for the property can be found at

The realty office handling the sale would not say if offers had been made on the property or if it was in escrow.
