Views, views, views. Situated high atop a hill overlooking 25 miles of Pacific coastline as well as the Santa Ynez mountains, in a gated community of 11 town homes, totally gutted and renovated, this pristine 3,800 square foot home is the perfect mix of contemporary and antique furnishings. Centrally located, only minutes from Montecito restaurants and shopping, the most beautiful beaches in California and downtown Santa Barbara.
Enter through a private, gated courtyard and proceed through a double Spanish Revival style front door.
The first floor has the current must-have open floor plan. The double height living room adjoins seamlessly to the dining area and the gourmet kitchen. The remaining first floor area is divided into a den, master bedroom, full bath, and office.
You will immediately notice the warm feeling generated by the antique wooden floors throughout. The 18 foot high fireplace in the living room reinforces the grand yet cozy décor. The furnishings, seating for 9, are composed of custom made down filled sofas and chairs as well as 18th century antiques and paintings. There are just enough contemporary pieces from such designers as Holly Hunt to lighten up the tone and add to the sophisticated but relaxed atmosphere that guests have raved about. And, of course, the must have, a 60 inch flat screen tv on a wall bracket which allows unobstructed viewing from any vantage point.
The first floor bedroom boasts a full bath, queen size bed, its own sitting area, a flat screen tv, and a large closet.. The den, with its own fireplace, houses a unique collection of Chinese Blue and White porcelain juxtaposed with sleek tables, a pullout sofa bed and a flat screen tv.
The office, with its wrap-around desk and storage unit, can be open to the spectacular views or closed off for entertaining via a luxurious Fortuney fabric curtain.
And, finally, the gourmet kitchen, with its two islands and stainless steel appliances, is a beautifully decorated gathering place for family and friends while being a chef’s dream (please see Kitchen list below).
After walking up the imposing staircase, you will reach the second floor consisting of two masters, two full bathrooms and the conveniently located laundry room.
Once you have taken in the awesome views from two balconies off the first master bedroom, you will notice a king size bed, a flat screen tv, the fireplace, and sitting area. The bathroom is ensuite with its glassed in shower and stand-alone bathtub featuring a state of the art Dornbracht faucet. You will have ample storage provided by one walk in closet, a second closet and additional built-in drawer units.
The second master bedroom has a queen size bed, a flat screen tv, ensuite bathroom and sitting area. The Santa Barbara sunsets viewed from this room are breathtaking.
If this is not enough, the best part awaits you outside. The balcony along the entire length of the first floor and the patio, with its sweeping views of the Pacific and the Santa Ynez coastal mountain range, is its own outdoor room complete with exquisite patio furniture, a fire pit for cozy evenings, a dining table, and a gas barbecue grill. And if that is not enough, a few steps away you will discover a swimming pool and hot tub at your complete disposal.
