6,000 Sq Ft French-Normandy home situated on 3-wooded acres 7 minutes from beach. Our recent county ordinances regulating short-term vacation rentals allows those of us who choose to remain on the property (in guest house quarters) to host vacationers. I've always lived onsite so I'm grateful I can continue to offer my home to visitors.
This comfortable home sleeps seven adults with extra space for children. It sits amidst the serene natural beauty of oaks with mountain and ocean views. The home has always been maintained to highest standards without the use of harsh products so its ideal for chemically sensitive people. The entire house and property have "memon" water and "memon-combi" (German technology) used for over 20 years to nullify harmful effects EMF, Wifi, and air/water toxicity. The drought tolerant landscape is organically sustained. After the Thomas fire in December 2017 all the vents were professionally cleaned and LED tested to insure no soot remains from the effects of smoke in the air. The house and property did not sustain damage from the overflow of creek and hopefully our hill tops will sprout new growth in coming months. During the quiet evening hours and early morning, faint sounds of a train in the distance, donkey baying and numerous bird songs bring the neighborhood alive to those seeking a place to unwind and relax yet close enough to all that Santa Barbara offers.
