This beautiful custom residence with touches of the desert Southwest transforms into a traditional Santa Barbara ranch-style home with a warm contemporary feel and the serenity of an old-world cloister.
Trees encircle a private lot and buffer the rear property line from the adjacent community park. Mature landscaping creates the illusion of a home perfectly suited to its environment.
This is a house that lives well out of doors, with a variety of open-air "rooms." A covered outdoor seating area has its own fireplace and several lounge areas allow a choice of cooling shade from spreading tree branches or al fresco enjoyment under a canopy of sky. Constructed around an open courtyard, interior rooms all feature views or access to the invitingly landscaped grounds. A classic pool and spa center the multi-level rear yard.
Although it's not immediately apparent, this home also features a unique upper-level entertainment center. A spacious lodge-like retreat with massive open trusses to accentuate a soaring ceiling, the space holds a well-equipped bar, a billiard table and seating area with a cozy fireplace. An expansive deck that overlooks the home's sparkling outdoor pool, spa, and patio, with sweeping views as well of surrounding mountains and valleys.
Stone, brick, stucco and terra cotta roof tiles of the exterior elevation complement the surrounding natural setting and allow the intense blue of the sky and lush greenery to take center stage. The exterior speaks of luxury but remains understated welcoming one into a lifestyle both comfortable and serene.
The great room on the main floor is oversized yet intimate, highlighted by gleaming wood floors, smooth plaster-like walls, and dark-stained ceilings with massive beams and corbels. The open space blends into the kitchen with its custom cabinetry and marble countertops, counter seating and nearby wet bar. The kitchen is ideally situated to serve both an informal eating nook that overlooks the backyard and a formal dining room with views towards the home's entry court.
In addition, a thoughtfully-designed Pullman-style butler's pantry acts as a second food preparation and serving area for the interior as well as for the outdoor entertainment complex. It features not only massive built-in refrigerator and freezer, but also a large wine chiller, a second large sink and an abundance of cabinetry. In the kitchen proper, a Wolf range, convection oven, and warming drawer serve the most demanding cook.
A private master enclave includes separate sleeping and sitting areas with a see-through fireplace, individualized owner's grooming and bathing areas, with an inviting steam shower as well as freestanding soaking tub, and dual walk-in closets. There are two additional bedrooms on the main floor, each with ensuite bathrooms and walk-in closets. Plus, guest casita with bed and bath.
A home office with built-in bookshelves and an impressive media room round out the main floor of this impressive home.
This distinctive residence also boasts four gas-fueled fireplaces, central vacuum system, Creston audio system, both interior and exterior ceiling fans, drip irrigation and lawn sprinkler, and full security. Four garage spaces house vehicles.
