With a rich history dating back to the roaring 20's, Sand Point Villa is one of 6 homes on what was once the sprawling estate known as Casa Blanca. Built by world renowned architect George Washington Smith, this spectacular domain was once the playground for Hollywood's elite in the early 20th century. Over time, the entire estate has been transformed into individually owned homes, each one unique, but all displaying the same bright white Moorish-style architecture rising from the pristine blue ocean background. Though having once been one estate the homes no longer share any common interior walls.
At Sand Point Villa, expansive tile floors the color of sea glass are set against bright white walls, creating a cool and light-filled feeling throughout the home. The Entry and Living Room with ultra-high ceilings seamlessly meld the interiors with the exceptional coastal views. A fireplace in the Living Room adds warmth to the cool colors of the contemporary furnishings, while tall key-hole windows frame the ocean view.
Sliding doors from the ground floor living spaces are a welcome invitation to the beachside lawn and large wrap around deck just outside. Whether seeking shade or full sun, there is plenty of space and seating for everyone to choose their own personal sanctuary by the sea. Year round, the unobstructed sweeping view of the ocean is spectacular, with playful dolphins dropping by now and then to say hello!
The Family Room, just off the oceanfront deck, offers a disappearing flat screen TV which can be lowered to create ease of conversation with those dining in the adjacent Formal Dining Room. The well-equipped Kitchen with breakfast bar is tucked in a perfect corner setting with large windows offering a clear visual path to the coastal landscape just outside.
Working professionals can stay connected to important business in the Office, while still feeling a part of the ocean side paradise through south facing windows. Stay focused, as it will be tempting to let one's mind wander with this scenic backdrop! Nearby, the downstairs Guest Bedroom features a queen-size bed and en suite Bathroom.
Ascend the gracefully curved staircase to the upstairs landing, suspended over the Living Room and Entry. In keeping with the cool ocean colors, a Media Room sits between the Master Bedroom and Master Bathroom, but feels equally open to all guests as a common space for all.
The Master Suite with fireplace and glass corner windows with westward orientation, was designed to enjoy the unobstructed ocean views at sunset. The Master Bathroom is spacious, with a corner spa tub and massive walk-in marble shower. A large walk-in closet completes the Master Suite.
Through the Master Bathroom is an additional Guest Bedroom with queen-size bed. This configuration becomes the perfect Family Suite, so little ones can remain close to parents in the Master Bedroom. A French door from this Guest Bedroom and plenty of sliding doors from the Master Bedroom and Media Room all lead to the shared deck that hovers over the main deck just below.
The 4th Bedroom is a spacious Studio Suite with Kitchenette, en suite Bathroom, Living Room w/flat screen TV, and private entrance that leads to the motor court and surrounding gardens below.
What makes Sand Point Villa truly amazing are the manicured gardens and the surrounding 7 acre property, which makes up this unique enclave of memorable homes. Just outside Sand Point Villa is the private, historic Pool House which features an amazing pool and "over-the-top" Moroccan design details - walls of mosaic tile, ornate fixtures, grand scale rooms and more. Guests will also enjoy the recreation center where you can play Pool, Foosball, and Ping-Pong. NOTE: The Pool House and tennis court are only for the use of residents and guests of the 6 homes. The swimming pool is only heated in Summer months.
The community also has private access to the beach and a ramp for jet skis, kayaks, and other water sport vehicles. A separate walking path allows you to enjoy bird watching and mountain views along the Carpinteria Salt Marsh for a quieter respite. Within walking distance is the quaint Santa Claus Lane with its unique shops, beach rentals, and restaurants. Enjoy a glass of wine and "farm to table" lunch at Garden Market, or take the entire family to the very popular Padaro Grill with an amazing outdoor picnic area for all ages.
Indulge in an unforgettable vacation experience at one of Santa Barbara County's most unique historic locations. Sand Point Villa, once the playground of the rich and famous, is yours for the asking!
