Our unique, architect-designed home is fully stocked with a gourmet kitchen, high-end furnishings, and colorful, artistic touches throughout. It was recently featured in HGTV Magazine and occasionally serves as the location for print and film shoots. Our home offers complete privacy in a lovely natural setting down a private lane, yet is only minutes from downtown, the Mission Rose Garden, Montecito, the beach, and hiking trails. Easy access to Ojai and the Santa Ynez & Los Olivos wine country.
With 4 bedrooms and 3200 square foot, this home is prefect for couples traveling together, extended family reunions or two groups traveling together - with plenty of community space for socializing and quiet nooks and patios for relaxing. The home is located on a half-acre wooded property and is walking distance to the Santa Barbara Mission, Botanic Garden, Natural History Museum, and some of Santa Barbara's best hiking trails.
The remodeled, high-end, chef's kitchen features a 6-burner Viking stove, new stainless steel appliances, All Clad cookware and large granite kitchen island. The spacious kitchen island separates the chef's area from the open dining room with a decorative fireplace and garden views. The open, downstairs living room is adjacent to the dining room for easy entertaining.
Upstairs, the 1000+ square foot Great Room affords a magnificent tree house view of majestic oak trees through a wall of windows. The great room is warm and inviting with a large sectional Pottery Barn couch, love seat, upholstered chairs, large flat screen TV, Wii, piano, play area/reading area and second large dining room. French doors open from the great room onto the upstairs outdoor patio and dining area which floats in the treetops.
There are four, generously-sized bedrooms total - two bedrooms downstairs and two bedrooms upstairs.

Mission Canyon is rich in Santa Barbara history, and a section of the century-old Mission aqueduct still exists on the property. You can also catch a glimpse of Cathedral Peak from the lawn - looking up one of the most dramatic canyons in the Santa Ynez mountains. Hikers will love the easy access to some of the best trails the area has to offer, including Rattlesnake, Seven Falls, and Inspiration Point trails. Cyclists might try the nearby famous Gibraltar Climb, called the 'Alp d'Huez of North America' by some, or can choose easier routes along Mountain Drive - complete with Channel Island views. Naturalists will enjoy a quick walk through the Botanic Gardens nearby. City and beach goers will appreciate that this seclusion is only minutes from downtown and some of the beast beaches and surf spots in the world. While there is a bus going to the Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens on the weekend, you will need a car during the week. There are parking spots for up to four cars. This is also bike-able location - only 15 minutes to and from downtown.

About the owner: Seven Oaks Retreat is much more than a vacation rental, it is our dream home in Santa Barbara that we love to share with our special guests.
Why the Owner Chose Mission Canyon (Santa Barbara, CA, USA):
Our home has been completely remodeled in 2012, is ultra-private, yet only minutes away from downtown and the beach. We keep our property sparkling clean and impeccably maintained, employing weekly gardeners and a professional housekeeping crew.
