Upper Riviera house description

You might be tempted to stand on this home's Juliet balcony and ask, “what light through yonder window breaks?” The answer is the ocean view that is seen from nearly every room in this wonderful, Italian-themed home.

The Mission Ridge Retreat is a beautiful Mediterranean home on nearly one half-acre overlooking the city of Santa Barbara. The home opens up to a spacious lanai through four french doors, from which you can take in a nice ocean breeze and the remarkable views of both the ocean and city lights. Soak in the beauty of Santa Barbara from this stunning property, which features fine architectural details like custom wrought iron arches, hand hewn stone walls, Alder doors, a spiral staircase, and red birch hardwood floors.

Experience the wilderness nearby at Sheffield Reservoir Park and Franschetti Park, or let the wildlife come to you. Birdsong throughout the day adds to the serene atmosphere, and deer and rabbits can be spotted in the backyard. Its truly a charmed life at Mission Ridge Retreat.

Each bedroom offers en-suite bath, designer furnishings and high quality bedding, including memory foam pillows. The large gourmet kitchen is a chef’s dream, and with top of the line appliances and amenities like a KitchenAid mixer and All-Clad cookware, you can make a dish fit for the gods. The living room and adjacent family room create a lovely space for families to share their time together with plenty of room for everyone. The Mission Ridge Retreat is a forgone conclusion for those looking for luxury and comfort (and a little bit of Shakespearean romance) at an affordable rate.
