Goleta farmhouse description

Looking for a truly remote quiet retreat in the Santa Barbara area?
My authentic adobe in the mountains above Refugio Beach is what you maybe yearning for. We call it The Mountain House.
Hand built over 38 years ago it radiates a peaceful serenity that is hard to come by in Southern California.
Located at the end of a long, gated ,private dirt road, you will find a true adobe hacienda, red tile roof, saltio tile floors, heavy timbered ceilings, big fireplace, wood stove, hot tub and complete privacy.
This beautiful three bedroom home has all the comforts and amenities you want for truly peaceful, memorable vacation.
Two bedrooms are equipped with very comfy King size beds, the other bedroom has a Queen bed. All are outfitted with new high count sheets, comforters and pillows.
There are two baths, one with a tub/ shower combo, the other a step down shower. Each bath has new soft cotton towels. Both are trimmed in Mexican tile.
The property is only thirty five minutes to Santa Barbara. You can explore this classic little city, loaded with options, from whale watching, shopping, movies and food. Fifteen minutes down the hill, At Refugio Beach, you can enjoy one of the nicest State Beaches in all of California.
But the real experience at the Mountain House is the tranquility, the utter lack of background noise, the brilliant starry night sky, the knowledge that you will feel alone on this beautiful planet.

The owner, lives in Santa Barbara, and is available to provide concierge services and whatever else you may need to have the best experience possible.
SPECIAL OFFER: If you see that the house is vacant five days or less from when you would like to visit, call for big savings!! Romantic couples special..two persons,two nights,flat rate $550.cleaning and taxes included!!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1972

              About the owner: Lived in this home for 36 years. Built by myself over an eight year period. Raised two children here with my wife using solar power and rustic living. Now, I have commercial electricity and way more comforts. This is real rural experience. I rented this place on VRBO in the early 2000' years. Most of my guests back then were blown away with the place. This is a magical place. I now live in Santa Barbara and work in the Real Estate business.

              Why the Owner Chose Goleta:
              I inherited this property from my dad. Grew up in this canyon . This property is a place of power...it seems to promote healing in all aspects of life.

              The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
              You will hear Great Horn owls as you fall off to sleep. The mother deer and her fawn will probably get in your way as you move around the property. The Mountain House is situated on an eighty acre parcel. You may feel very far away from the crowd here. The nearest neighbor is a half mile away.
