Alta Mesa house description

Our seaside retreat is situated on beautiful acre with views of the city, and is perfect for family gatherings or romantic getaways. The centerpiece of the home is the backyard – where most guests are content to sit for hours. An expansive grass area is perfect for alfresco dining, a game of croquet, football or whiffle ball. Fruit trees line the grass, and towering oaks add privacy. There are four separate patio areas – for grilling, and dining at a large teak table. The adjacent seating area with a lounge, chairs and ottomans is perfect for gathering.

You’ll find beachside charm and luxury in our 3 bedroom/2 bath home that accommodates 6 people comfortably – AND- features all new beds, carpets, paint, molding, furniture (with the exception of an antique buffet), hard wood floors and draperies. Our open floor plan features an entry hall and great-room with vaulted ceilings, two seating areas, and a wood-burning fire-place and HDTV 50 inch flat screen. The room opens up to the dining patio and expansive yard. A separate dining room seats 8 comfortably with doors that lead you to a large patio.
The bright kitchen overlooks the garden and is stocked with cookware, small appliances, serving ware, bar and glassware. The cabinets are filled with kitchen basics from spices for cooking. A double oven, dishwasher complete the kitchen that also features a breakfast nook.
The master bedroom is a peaceful retreat that features a pine queen-size sleigh-bed, and doors that open up to the outside seating area in the garden. The room has a separate dressing area, bath with shower stall and large closest. The second bedroom – decorated in calming blues – has a queen size bed, and a large window that looks out to the city lights and
mountains beyond. A third bedroom features two twin size beds, a cozy arm chair and lots of seaside art. Beds feature
cotton sheets, non-allergenic pillows and plenty of beautiful comforters. A large second bath features a tub/shower combo, and plenty of counter space. Stacks of fluffy towels and soap are included.

Located 5 minutes (by car) to Hendry’s Beach or downtown restaurants and attractions – it’s the perfect launching point for wine-tasting excursions, beach visits, a visit to the historic mission or botanical gardens, Santa Barbara Bowl concerts, the many local golf course and the SB Fairgrounds – and for UCSB parents and wedding guests. The house has plenty of Santa Barbara guidebooks, as well as a list of our favorite restaurants and activities.

Your beach trips will be made easy as we provide beach towels, chairs and umbrellas, summer reading – even beach totes – all you need is your swim suit. Wireless internet, cable TV and HBO, washer/dryer all included. A croquet set and footballs, paddleball sets are included.
