The quaint streets of the Riviera lead you up to this bright split-level home with expansive coastal vistas from almost every area of the home. Relax on the upper deck or lower patio, and enjoy south-facing views of the blue coastal waters that cradle the Channel Islands in the distance. Perched atop the Riviera overlooking Santa Barbara, there is no finer view.
Inside, lofty wood-beam ceilings enhance a great floor plan with versatile appeal. Smart in design, the home is comfortable with a relaxed and eclectic feel. Local art and colorful photographs taken by the owner add a bright pop of color throughout the home.
The Kitchen and Dining area is open and spacious, and becomes a central area for gathering and cooking. A lavish supply of culinary tools offers ease and convenience. Adjacent to the Kitchen, the Dining Room table seats 8, and the nearby breakfast table seats 4. Just outside the dining area and Kitchen is a protected patio with barbecue and spa. A pathway also leads down to the lower deck and terraced garden with walking path.
The Game Room is off the Kitchen and offers guests a great spot to enjoy Foosball or a video game on the Wii. Open the sliding doors to extend this room out onto the spa deck.
The upper level has an expansive deck overlooking the entire city of Santa Barbara, and is truly the heart of this wonderful home. An outdoor dining table is perfectly positioned in the corner overlooking the city lights. If the night air turns chilly, retire to the central Living Room without loosing any of the view.
To the right of the Living Room is the Master Suite with a king-size bed, bay window, and high open beam ceilings. A private deck off this room offers a great spot for morning coffee or star gazing. The classic tile and marble Master Bathroom has a walk-in shower, a soaking tub, and 2 sinks.
To the left of the Living Room is the large corner office which is a wonderful place for working professionals. Once you close the laptop for the day, just step outside to the deck to relax and enjoy the serene ocean views.
On the lower level, a fantastic feature of this home is the 2 bedroom Family Suite. One bedroom offers a queen-size bed and full bathroom. The 2nd bedroom has 2 twin day beds and kitchenette. Please note that guests will have to go through the adjacent bedroom to access this room or use the exterior door to access from the side yard.
Central to the lower level is the Family Room with a flat screen TV, sectional couch, and a second fireplace. Sliding doors lead out to the lower patio and yard. The lower patio invites morning meditation or quiet conversation overlooking the city and ocean. The yard boasts citrus trees and natural plantings on the terraced hillside.
To the left of the Family Room is the 4th bedroom with king-size bed, full bathroom, and sliding doors to the patio outside.
