Designed by the renowned architect Reginald Johnson who also designed the Four Season, Biltmore Resort and Spa in Santa Barbara this two-story Villa has the feel of the old world charm with all the amenities of today.
Situated on one acre of beautifully manicured gardens this estate emanates tranquility and calmness and gives you complete privacy yet is only five minutes from downtown Santa Barbara. You may never want to leave this self -contained dream retreat but still in walking distance is the 5-Star El Encanto Hotel with bar, restaurant and spa as well as a movie theater.
Enjoy the Villa – it’s southern exposure, views down to Santa Barbara and it’s harbor as well as the channel islands… sipping coffee from bed….breakfast on the terrace…dining al fresco. The pool area entices the sunbathers…a walk thru the gardens encourages to pause, read a book or watch the koi fish.
The ground floor of the Villa comprises the spacious living area: The large living room is the center with its cozy fireplace and opens to the large outside terrace. Next to it the family room/media room invites one to relax, play games or watch TV or movies on the large 80’ flat screen with terrific theater sound. A formal dining room leads directly into the large kitchen with its own dining/breakfast area. You will feel at home whether you want to cook or just hang out, watch TV and chat while dinner is being made.
Upstairs are 3 of the bedrooms. One master suite, romantic with its coffered ceiling and a small Romeo and Juliet like balcony, plenty of walk in cabinet space and a double marble bathroom. A second suite with a large panoramic window has the best view of the house. The third bedroom although smaller has it’s own en suite bathroom, as well. The fourth bedroom has it's own private and separate entrance on the pool level and also has it own bathroom.
