Executive Escape - Sleek and Sophisticated in Mission Canyon
From the sweeping heights of the Santa Barbara foothills, this mid-century modern home commands breathtaking views of the city and the sea beyond. It's sleek architecture and distinctive craftsmanship, combined with the use of natural materials in the open, uncluttered interiors, have created a serene environment bathed in natural light. Proudly, the home was featured in Seasons Magazine and carries the distinguished honor of having won the AIA Award (American Institute of Architects) for October 2011.
An outdoor cascading waterfall welcomes you to the main level Great Room/Living Room where rich teak walls, walnut floors and seamless glass walls combine to create a warm glow throughout the entire home.
The mood of the Living Room is set by the inviting leather sectional sofa and retro gas fireplace where flames flicker above smooth grey stones. For fun, 3D glasses have been provided to accompany the 60" flat screen HDTV for movie-night viewing. Another striking feature of this home are the Nana sliding glass doors that fold completely open to create a seamless flow from the living spaces out to expansive wrap-around decks of tropical Ipe wood.
Enjoy meal preparation in the smart kitchen equipped with state-of-the-art Dacor appliances. With honed black granite counters, teak walls and cabinets and stainless steel accents, your culinary choices are unlimited. Diners perched at the breakfast bar that seats 3 can share the cook's efforts or join in conversations in the Living Room. Or, more formally, a lovely illusion of indoor-outdoor dining is experienced at the nearby glass dining table poised before the Nana doors.
The guest bedrooms are located on the main floor. With a wall of glass, the west bedroom faces the shady hillside with sounds echoing from the entry fountain. A custom queen-size platform bed is built-into a wall of local sandstone that literally melds into the garden. The east bedroom with queen-size bed offers glass doors to the wrap around deck and a full bath with walk-in shower.
If work responsibilities beckon during your stay, the office is a calm space that holds a contemporary desk overlooking views of the grassy hillside and the rock-lined seasonal creek just outside.
Descend the glass-lined stairway to the lower-level Master Suite. Continuing in minimalist style, the bedroom is peaceful and spacious with a platform King-size bed, sitting area and private balcony with sweeping coastal views.
The Master Bath provides an elegant spa experience from the large soaking tub to the scenic views from the glass shower. Ultimately, however, the crowning touch is the full-size Finlandia Sauna where the effects of the most stress filled day or the aching muscles from the most energetic activities will melt away.
A bonus room off the Master Bedroom balcony has been converted to an awesome home gym with a club-style spinning bike, weights, ball, bands and yoga mats. There is no athletic club in town with this spectacular view! Swing open the Nana doors and enjoy cool breezes while you ride.
Whatever the reasons for your getaway, Executive Escape is a blank canvas waiting for you to create the perfect retreat experience. Day and night, the ever-changing views and the essential serenity of this beautiful home will offer you unforgettable beauty and tranquility.

An incredible retreat where the actual experience was better than the photos!
This property feels isolated from the world but is conveniently located ~10 minutes from downtown Santa Barbara and 15 from the beach. Also, the fact that it is a three bedroom, 3 bathroom house was ideal for 3 couples staying there. My family and I will be coming back to this spot! It’s perfect.
The home was great! Excellent location. Close to everything. Very quiet neighborhood. Peaceful feel to the home. My favorite part of the home was the outdoor patio. With a view of the ocean, the 6 of us gathered there every morning for coffee and conversation. It was very special. We also made very good use of the fireplace, in the evenings. The view of the city lights at night was breathtaking. We cooked in for some of our meals, and we dined out at The Harbor Restaurant on the pier, Los Agaves on Milpas, The Worker Bee Café in Carpinteria, and had REALLY good coffees at Pascucci on State Street. The only issue for us was there are stairs leading from the garage to the house, and there are stairs with no handrails from the street to the house, and the hard wood floors are a little slippery. It was fine for the younger folks, but my 88 year old father was pretty nervous at times. Two of the beds are low to the floor. This isn't an ideal house for an elderly couple, but for anyone else, it is really perfect. I would definitely stay again, and I would recommend it to my friends, for sure.
Glamorous vacation rental, beautiful scenic vistas
What a fantastic property. The view from the deck was amazing.
The furnishings are very well done, the home was lacking in nothing. We stayed here with 3 couples and it worked beautifully.
I would highly recommend staying here if you want to feel like a true Californian!
Excellent Canyon Escape
We loved the layout, spaciousness, and warm wood glow. The deck/views on the main level and downstairs are outstanding. A few minor findings were the master bathroom shower temperature was not adjustable and too hot. Waterfall did not function during scheduled times nor manually which we were a bit disappointed about. None of these though detracted us from enjoying the house overall. Wonderful family memories were made for our son who graduated UCSB.
Perfect getaway location
The house is spectacular with modern amenities and luxury decor. The deck and view really make the house special. This house is perfect to host groups or a large family. BBQ is in perfect condition with a gorgeous kitchen.
As Beautiful As The Photos Show
We had the perfect birthday weekend in Santa Barbara this weekend. Perched in the hills of Mission Canyon, this gem of a home was glamorous! Beautiful views of the water, the Channel Islands and downtown. We were above it all. The kitchen was beautifully stocked allowing some delightful eating. The best part, though, was how close the house is to downtown and all the restaurants. Would come back and stay again.
