San Luis Obispo estate description

Casa Contenta is a sprawling and luxurious Spanish Estate nestled on 6 acres in the Avila Valley overlooking vineyards. From the home, everything is just a walk or bike ride away: beach, golf, wine tasting, dining and concerts! A quick drive to downtown SLO, Avila Valley has the most desirable weather in the county, offering a warm and sunny micro climate. The beautiful Bob Jones Bike Trail, Sycamore Hot Springs and the Avila Barn is less than a mile from the home as well as restaurants, a tennis resort and golf course.

This gorgeous residence features a heated pool and built in outdoor spa, 3 outdoor gas firepits and a stunning Moroccan lounge -- a favorite retreat for guests, as well as a playground area for younger children. There are walking trails as well within the secured, fenced 6 acres of the property.

The main residence includes 3 bedrooms, each with a private bathroom and flat screen TV, 3 fireplaces, large formal dining, gourmet kitchen, wine cellar, great room and kid’s retreat. Directly adjacent is the charming Casitas, or guest house, with two additional bedrooms, a large bathroom, living room, fireplace and a stunning eat-in kitchen. Additionally, “the Loft” is a spacious retreat including a king bed and bathroom, fireplace, flat screen TV and large lounging area.

In total, the home sleeps 12, offing 2 king beds, 3 queens and 1 set of full bunk beds in a total of 6,450 square feet.

The residence has been renovated throughout offering contemporary luxury in a gorgeous Spanish hacienda. The property has endless places to gather in large groups, or escape for some privacy. The perfect location for a first-class Central Coast get-away.
