Property description

Unique property with main house and cottage which both open onto lush outdoor space offering both privacy and intimacy. Lush terraced gardens include Weber outdoor grill,gas firepit, a kitchen center with sink,and Mexican tiled counter tops to facilitate outdoor meals. The outdoor shower is intertwined with jasmine, heirloom roses, and dahlias that have been maturing for over 40 years. Elegant plantings with orange, lemon, grapefruit, avocado, banana, and cherimoya trees cascade three levels from the house to adjacent cottage.

The newly renovated main house is both airy and luminous, with Brazilian Koa floors and recessed lighting throughout. The main house features three bedrooms with 400 count thread sheets, and tasteful decor.Two bedrooms also have views and access to gardens with 6’ sliders and patios. A top of the line, fully equipped kitchen includes granite counter tops with stainless steel appliances and Bosch dishwasher and center aisle cook top with separate convection oven and microwave. The master bath includes travertine marble tiling throughout with double sinks, and spacious shower area. The open floor plan boasts a step down living room with Colorado stone fireplace, exotic wood mantle and flat screen television.

The charming two bedroom guest cottage,'formally a historic dance studio' has two levels with floor to ceiling divided light windows. A retro-style kitchen contains an Overland 1930’s stove, breakfast bar, and birch dining table. The king bedroom, and living room both have a bright, airy ambiance that brings the outdoors in with glass sliders out to bottom level of terraced patio. A queen bed is located in the second bedroom. A separate office and laundry area bridge the gap between the two units.
This tropical oasis is situated 1 ½ miles to East Beach, the Santa Barbara Children’s Zoo, Stern’s Wharf, and downtown Santa Barbara. Within walking distance to the Municipal tennis courts and Montecito golf course. Montecito is ¼ mile down the road with unique boutiques and restaurants.
