The Mesa (Beach Area) house description

ZEN & PEACEFUL! This light filled, completely remodeled home sits on a bluff in the sought after Mesa section of Santa Barbara. Amazing ocean views from all open living areas and 2 of the 3 bedroom suites. Decks off the Living Room, Master Bedroom and office enable you to enjoy a sunrise, a sunset or both!

Walk - or ride a bike (we provide 4 adult ones) to the nearby beaches, to State Street (SB's shopping mecca) or to the nearby Mesa Center for lunch, a Starbucks or the ingredients to prepare a gourmet meal.

The main living level, with vaulted ceilings in Living Room, Dining room and Kitchen has an open floor plan with fabulous views from each room. All rooms flow together beautifully for easy living & entertaining. Enjoy a glass of wine on the deck off the living room as you marvel at the breathtaking sunsets.

The newly decorated living room is sophisticated and elegant, but comfortable and perfect for celebrating with family and friends. Cozy up in front of the fire place and relax by watching the 52' HD-TV (the Premium Cable package includes all sports, news, music and movie channels.)

Or if you prefer to play music, 'channel' Billy Joel or Mozart on the baby Grand Piano and acoustic guitar. Or if percussions are your pleasure... beat away on the bongos.

If cooking is your style, enjoy the view as you prepare a meal in the fully equipped gourmet kitchen. The kitchen overlooks the dining and living rooms so you can still feel included in all the fun.

The 2 story home & decks are networked for wireless internet connection for work, surfing the web or computer games.

On the main level (off the foyer) is a private bedroom suite with a Queen size EZ bed. There is also a Full size loft bed. The full bathroom is just outside the bedroom door.

The Master bedroom and the 3rd bedroom are downstairs. An office and hall way separate the rooms from each other and adds to privacy. The Master bedroom has a Queen size bed with luxurious Hotel Collection duvet, down comforter and high thread count sheets. For your listening pleasure, there is an iHome to charge your phone & enjoy music. There is a 52' HD-TV with Premium Cable package. The Master's bath room is large and has an oversized tub/shower, 2 sinks and a private toilet. Stroll outside the Master bedroom onto its own private patio with comfy Restoration Hardware seating area and plants. It is a perfect place to read a book, watch the sunrise and/or sunset or take an afternoon siesta.

The 3rd bedroom is airy and light filled. The luxurious French Frette bedding and down comforter & pillows will insure a lovely night sleep. Cable HD-TV is provided. The bedroom has an in suite bathroom with shower.

Our home is centrally located to all that Santa Barbara offers. We are a short drive to the beach (less than a mile).
