Alta Mira - Hilltop Hideaway in Carpinteria

NOTE: We do not use the availability calendar on this website. Please visit Paradise Retreats website for availability information. Use the 'For Property Information and Availability Calendar' link located at the bottom of this page.

Tucked away in the Carpinteria foothills and surrounded by 6 acres of natural landscape, Alta Mira sits high above the blue coastal waters offering a very private respite away from it all. This wonderful family home boasts panoramic ocean and island views from nearly every room. Casual and comfortable, this hilltop hideaway blends Spanish architectural elements in a setting that is a both scenic and serene. A contemporary open floor plan, plentiful natural light and high Cathedral wood beamed ceilings frame the amazing views.

The sunken Living Room with its corner location offers an open, comfortable place to relax. On a clear day the view can span from Ventura to Point Conception. A stucco fireplace and Pleyelpiano, complete with a variety of sheet music, defines this space as a great gathering spot to relax or entertain.

In Great Room style, the Kitchen and Family Room blend seamlessly under soaring beam ceilings. The comfortable sitting area offers French doors to the pool terrace with a fireplace adding an extra touch of warmth and ambiance.

The Kitchen is efficient with a center island and an abundance of counter space. A unique feature of the well stocked kitchen is the induction cook top with ceramic burners that are cool to the touch, but boil water in a blink of an eye! Bay windows offer a scenic vantage point to enjoy both the ocean and mountain landscape. Nearby is the Dining Room with a large table and plenty of windows for cool ocean air.

Also on the main level, a south facing Guest Room features a queen-size bed, twin trundle, and ocean views. The second guest suite features a queen-size bed and corner views of the ocean and pool terrace. As a convenience, a large handicapped accessible Bathroom not only has an enclosed traditional shower, but features a large open shower stall with hand rails and hand held sprayer. An exterior door to the pool terrace and driveway make these ground level accommodations ideal for guests needing a bit of assistance.

Upstairs, the main Master Suite is spacious and bright. French doors lead to a balcony overlooking the azure blue coast. Stairs lead down to the pool terrace. As with all the bedrooms in the home, the generous walk-in closet is cedar lined. The Master Bathroom features tile of deep indigo blue surrounding a luxurious spa, ' his and her' dual sinks, and walk-in glass shower.

A second Master Suite offers a king-size bed, corner ocean views, and a full bathroom.

Outside, meandering paths lead to three stone patios. Private and well appointed, these areas are carved out for romantic dining or just quietly sitting to take in the views from the terraced hillside.

The Terrace is the central hub for all pool and mealtime activity. A 'top of the line' Jenn-Air gas powered outdoor kitchen features an oversized grill, searing surface, griddle and oven. This is truly a culinary paradise for creative outdoor chefs. There is even a smoker for true grilling aficionados. This outdoor oasis will become the heart of all activity at this special property.

When you are ready to venture out, explore the beauty of the coastal landscape on hiking trails initiating from nearby Toro Canyon Park. Linden Avenue, Downtown Carpinteria's main street, offers great coffee shops, fine dining, and a fun eclectic mix of surf shops, antique stores and more. Don't forget to walk down to the white sands of Carpinteria beach. Stop on the way back at 'The Spot' for the best hamburgers and milkshakes in the area!

From sunrise to sunset, the views are spectacular and thoughtful attention has been paid to creating a private retreat steeped in comfort. Choose Alta Mira for a vacation experience in paradise.
