Tranqui-La is an architectural masterpiece reminiscent of the style of Frank Lloyd Wright. Beautiful natural materials come together in harmonious design elements that give the home its peaceful and serene quality. This dramatic property is located at the end of a private cul-de-sac, and overlooks all of Santa Barbara. The home was designed on 3 separate levels so all major living spaces face breathtaking views of the city, harbor and coastline beyond. A sense of peace will welcome you on entering this special property.
Immediately, the ocean and city views draw you out to the cantilevered balcony - the signature element of this exceptional home. Here is where you will want to spend much of your time while vacationing in this homey resort. The bright living room has a wall of sliding glass doors that extends the living space onto the flagstone balcony.
The massive sandstone fireplace and hearth is the anchor of the main-floor great room. The soaring and multiple angled ceilings with restrained oak beams give the rooms a clean and contemporary feeling. Inside the antique Tansu hutch is a stereo operating system that controls speakers throughout the home. The living room, dining room, family room and kitchen have a natural and open flow with oak and natural stone flooring throughout the main level. The clean and beautiful lines of this state-of-the-art kitchen will impress everyone and the well designed layout and amenities will make the most exacting chef ecstatic. Soapstone counters make a wonderful work surface. Natural rift oak and graphite laminate face the sleek German cabinetry and large center island. 3 Wolf ovens, 2 Miele dishwashers, a Sub-Zero refrigerator, 2 additional refrigerator drawers, 2 prep sinks and a separate ice machine provide an abundance of convenience
The owners have generously stocked the kitchen with cooking tools and supplies; inviting you to begin creating fabulous meals. When you look up from your chopping, the views from the kitchen are quite spectacular, too. The family room with flat screen TV and fireplace becomes a great hang-out place. The soft leather sofa reclines, inviting guests to relax in front of the fireplace. A private patio just outside offers access to the barbecue and another outdoor dining area. A bedroom suite, with twin trundle bed, is adjacent to the family room.
