Property description

Villa Ballena - Santa Barbara's Tranquil Oceanfront Estate

This expansive Santa Barbara oceanfront property provides unparalleled privacy, views, and private beach access.

Enjoy all that this property has to offer: views of the Channel Islands, sunrises, sunsets, pool, spa, soothing sounds of the ocean, and much more. It is an incredible family home, and a vacation dream come true!

The property is a rambling, 4 bedroom, 6 bath, ranch-style home. There are ocean views from almost every room in the house. Each bedroom has its own private bathroom. The property offers plenty of privacy and room to spread out.

Almost every inch of this ~2 acre property is well-tended. Lush lawns are shaded by mature and beautiful trees. Walkways meander around the park-like grounds, with shady spots to rest and relax..

A large living room and family room both have fireplaces. There is a dinning room with outstanding ocean views. The huge kitchen is fully stocked. Thoughtful touches by the owners offer all the comforts of home.

The large pool and spa are perfect for entertaining and soaking up the sun. A gazebo situated above the beach lends the perfect opportunity to relax and take in the sunset. Dolphins, whales, and seals are frequently seen swimming by right in front of the property.

A gated community stairway provides access to a beautiful and secluded beach. The beach goes for miles and miles and you can literally spend days walking the beach from this location. More Mesa conservation land is directly adjacent to the property, with hundreds of acres of hiking and biking trails.

The property is located in the beautiful and secluded More Mesa Shores, at the north end of Santa Barbara. This private residential retreat along the coast is just minutes to the Santa Barbara airport, UCSB, great restaurants, and numerous points of interest. The Santa Barbara Orchid Estates are within walking distance of this retreat home, offering hundreds of different species of orchids from around the world.

Villa Ballena may just become a vacation paradise tradition for your friends and family to gather each year. Come and enjoy the beauty of the tranquil pacific waters, and luxury of Santa Barbara living.
