Property description

Welcome to our Santa Barbara home, located in a beautiful, family friendly neighborhood only two blocks from Shoreline Park. Shoreline Park is a Santa Barbara favorite, and offers beautiful views of the islands, mountains, and harbor area with stairs to the beach if you feel like surfing, swimming or taking a beach walk (the tide pools are awesome!). Our home is also within walking distance of the Harbor which boasts of the Santa Barbara Yacht Club, the Maritime Museum, the exciting breakwater, and top notch restaurants overlooking the marina and stunning Santa Barbara mountains. We are also only minutes to the Pier (Stearns Wharf), Santa Barbara City College, State Street and downtown Santa Barbara. You can pick up the bike path at Shoreline Park and ride along the beach all the way to Montecito and visit our lovely ocean-front zoo and bird refuge along the way.

Our 4 bedroom/3.5 bath home is large, spacious and clean, providing a wonderful back drop for family and friends to enjoy, with over 3,600 square feet of living space and ample outdoor deck space. With a lovely fish filled pond and waterfall in the peaceful and private back yard, there's plenty of space to retreat to for peaceful contemplation. The stunning third floor deck and private hot tub offer ocean views and a relaxing spa-style atmosphere, with a trickling fountain and tunes from the home's audio system.

A beautifully finished gym/recreation area features a ping pong table, weight lifting equipment, a Precor elliptical stair climber, mini fridge and dart board!

The fully equipped gourmet chef kitchen is on the second [main] floor and features all high-end appliances, offers an ocean view, expansive granite counters, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Dacor double ovens with convection option, a center island with Dacor cooktop, Samsung dishwasher, a warming drawer for keeping your food warm until serving, a built-in microwave and freestanding Whirlpool ice machine. It also has a breakfast area with an ocean view and seating for six. The kitchen gracefully flows into the dining room and the great room so that the cook never feels isolated. There is also a lovely patio off the breakfast room and kitchen with an ocean view, a table and seating for four, a Weber gas BBQ grill and an outdoor heater to take the chill off!

The large dining room is on the second floor and has an ocean view, a stunning teak dining table with seating for eight, a custom made wrought iron chandelier and is a great place for hosting an elegant dinner party or for family and friends to gather for meals.

The great room has high cathedral style ceilings, a sky light, an ocean view, and a large impressive stone fireplace that instantly makes things warm and toasty with the flip of a switch. 58' Smart TV has incredible sound with sub-woofer, and interfaces with YouTube, Netflix, Pandora, etc etc, along with the usual cable networks. The great room, dining room and kitchen all flow together into a single unified space.

The beautiful king master suite is on the 3rd floor which includes an office, a fireplace, a mini fridge, sink/wet bar and private coffee station. Enjoy your coffee on the ocean view balcony which is directly off the master bedroom. The adjoining marble bathroom suite with its spa-like atmosphere has a large marble shower, extra-large tub, double vanities, a sky light and a very private lavatory with a bidet and a pleasant view of the garden pond and waterfall. The master suite opens up to the office which in turn has a door which gracefully flows out to the deck and hot tub with ocean views, outdoor speakers and a relaxing spa-style fountain. The spa deck can also be accessed from a private door in the master bathroom.

The guest suite on the second floor boasts of an attached bathroom, queen sized bed and an ocean view. The décor has an old fashioned feel in that it has a lovely heirloom chandelier. It is a truly charming room and one of our favorites!

The loft room is a lovely room with a queen size bed, extra soft and plush carpeting, a loft which is accessed by climbing a beautiful wood ladder with custom copper handrails. This room has a lovely view of the pond and waterfall. The loft has a queen size memory foam bed and would be particularly fun for children who want to sleep in their own fort!

The chalkboard room has two full beds as bunks, an ocean view and a large chalk wall where any budding artist can express him or herself.

There is a large double vanity bathroom on the second floor, located in-between and utilized primarily by the loft and chalkboard wall bedrooms.

The service porch has new heavy duty Speed Queen commercial washer and dryer, an ironing station, practical pull-out table for folding laundry and a half bath. The laundry room opens out into the charming back yard.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1986

About: Thank you for your interest in my home, which I built in 1996. I'm a California native, and beyond vacation travels I've always been a resident of Southern California. Just can't seem to get enough of our sun & beaches!! Since 1982 I've made my living on Wall St, as a Vice President and Financial Advisor to high net worth individuals with Morgan Stanley. I am currently working in our Santa Barbara and San Diego offices.

Why East Mesa, Santa Barbara, CA, USA:
This home and location have been a passion of mine since initial purchase for $198,000 in 1986. 10 years later and by the grace of God, the modest original 3/1 1200 square foot home was transformed into the custom home you see today. Thank you for your interest... come stay a while, you will love it!
