Spring House exceeds customary expectations, and is a luxury experience from original art to thread count to Viking appliances. The living room contains two separate conversation areas which lead to an enclosed terrace through two sets of French doors, where a second fountain provides background music for your dining or lounging pleasure. The formal dining room seats six with room for additional tables and an adjacent bar with six bar stools. The first kitchen is adjacent to the dining room in an open floor plan style sharing the warmth of a gas fueled automatic fireplace and a flat screen tv. The kitchen is appointed with Viking appliances, granite counter tops and a soaring ceiling with skylights. A glass door and pass through windows over a farmhouse sink give way to a gracious brick patio decorated with potted plants and dense landscaping where the third of four fountains gurgles while you dine or relax. The BBQ is located here. The media room also serves as a fourth bedroom with complete privacy; it houses a 47' flat screen, a second fireplace, a queen sleeper sofa with additional memory foam feather bed, and a massage chair. An attached studio apartment contains a very comfortable high end queen sleeper sofa, a full kitchen and dining area, and a full bathroom. The wall of windows in the studio folds open to a lanai with treadmill, fountain, jacuzzi and sauna.
The master bedroom is furnished with an exotic teak king bed, a fireplace, a conversation area, and flat screen. It includes a huge walk-in closet with built-in dresser, an en suite bathroom with travertine counters and floors and a dressing table. The second bedroom also has an en suite bathroom, a queen four-poster, and a private balcony. The third bedroom is charmingly decorated with a seating area and game table, and contains a king size bed and a daybed with trundle to sleep four people comfortably. A fourth full bathroom is adjacent to the media room and the third bedroom. The house is well stocked with a wi-fi connected computer, iPod docking stations, movies, books, games, and puzzles.
The multiple cooking and dining options make Spring House a perfect location for major holidays or large scale entertaining. The extensive landscaping is well-lit for leisurely al fresco evenings in Santa Barbara's year-round temperate climate. The outdoor experience at this compound is a fantasy of light, sound, water and tropical foliage. Expect the very best...You will get it here!
