Property description

Nestled in the foothills overlooking Santa Barbara this enchanting old world villa is replete with expansive city, ocean, and mountain views. In a word, the setting can only be described as breathtaking. Custom built in 2008, this home has old world charm throughout evident in the choice of materials and craftsmanship typical of multimillion dollar estates. Interior touches include thick plaster walls, Gothic arches, exposed beam ceilings of old-growth lumber, sandstone corbels, oil rubbed bronze, rich walnut doors and windows, honed carrera counter tops, nickel finished fixtures to name a few. Modern amenities include recirculating hot water, whole house soft water, radiant heating, brass screened windows and in house vacuum.

Located on a 2 acre parcel offering privacy and country serenity it is walking distance to the popular Tunnel and Jesusita hiking trails and to Mission Creek. Downtown Santa Barbara is less than 4 miles away although it seems much farther. Deer, bobcat, fox, and the occasional coyote wander across the open grass covered property. Birds include red tailed hawks, red headed woodpeckers, vultures, quail, roadrunners, and an assortment of smaller feathered friends. For the outdoor enthusiast this location offers a host of options including just sitting in a comfortable chair with a pair of binoculars. At night, the crickets serenade you while you sip wine amid soft canyon breezes on the brick terrace and study the ever present milky way.

This beautiful home features well proportioned rooms accessed by passing through the foyer and down the main hallway tucked beneath an intricate groin vaulted ceiling. The large kitchen boasts spacious honed carrera marble counters, a beautiful blue Viking range with 6 burners and 2 ovens, toaster, juicer, blender, coffee maker, and All Clad cookware. The large farmhouse sink comes with nickel finished faucet and hand spray. The cabinets, made of reclaimed old-growth lumber, have shelves that pull out for easy access to cookware.

Directly off the kitchen is the elegant dining room seating 6. As you dine you are mesmerized by cathedral windows overlooking the twinkling city lights. The dining room ceiling features an 11-foot high open beam ceiling constructed of hand hewn beams and 8-foot tall French doors. Intricate plaster details adorn the room.

The sunken living room adjoins the kitchen through a large sandstone arch revealing a soaring open beamed ceiling and elegant fireplace with herringbone brick. Beautiful 7-foot tall walnut French doors open to the herringbone brick terrace bounded by olive trees and a lush green lawn.

Off the living room a mysterious curved arched passage gives way to the gorgeous library with a double groin vaulted ceiling and prominent mountain views. This room hosts the 55” flat screen LED/LCD TV but becomes a quiet sanctuary when the electronics are powered down.

A gracefully curved staircase leads to a majestic master bedroom with vaulted ceiling constructed of hand hewn beams overlain by 100 year old reclaimed planking and an exotic Moroccan lantern. French doors open to a loggia with city/ocean views on one side and a large private balcony with sweeping mountain views on the other side. Each morning the sun steams in through the multi-arch framed loggia heralding the start of a new day. Includes private bathroom with his and her sinks. Of course, the latrine has its own room and the ceiling is groin vaulted!

Second bedroom is perfect for older children with bunk beds, a twin on top and full on bottom. Leopard pattern carpet completes the room which includes a private bath/shower and balcony.
