Offering the quintessential Santa Barbara lifestyle, this meticulously renovated Riviera estate merges stunning Mediterranean architecture and discriminating appointments with breathtaking views and mesmerizing sunsets. Stepping through the beautifully tiled entry door, the home’s exceptional ocean, island, harbor and city vistas are on immediate display. The mostly single-level layout captures the view from all primary rooms and entertaining areas, which open seamlessly through bi-folding glass doors to the southern terrace and infinity pool. Inside, Mediterranean features such as vaulted beamed ceilings, handcrafted tile, arched doorways, rich hardwood flooring, and wrought-iron lighting convey sophisticated elegance.
The home’s effortless flow and exceptional design continues through the living room, dining room and kitchen. The luxurious kitchen was reimagined in 2018 to feature colorful handcrafted tile, hand-finished and distressed solid knotty alder cabinetry, chef’s appliances including Wolf, Bosch and SubZero, and a spacious center island fitted with a leathered granite counter top and Grohe prep sink. An outdoor kitchen accented by handcrafted tilework is accessed through a charming Dutch-door, while a well-appointed laundry/mudroom is discretely located near the kitchen, providing convenient access to and from the attached garage. A guest suite with en-suite bath completes the eastern wing, while a spacious office is located off the entry.
Anchoring the western wing of the home is the master suite and two additional bedrooms, each en-suite featuring hand-painted tile. The master suite is a serene escape preceded by an intimate library, perfect for showcasing favorite books and objets d’art. The vaulted beamed ceiling, private ocean view patio and Moroccan-inspired accents lend the room a romantic ambience, while the integrated Sonos/Marantz audio & video system and luxuriously tiled bathroom with indoor/outdoor shower ensures that you might never want to leave.
Resting atop a knoll on approximately ½ nearly flat acre, lovely landscaping, citrus orchards and mature trees embellish the grounds while providing privacy and tranquility. An uncommon oasis on the Riviera, this sanctuary is located just moments from the historic Old Mission, Belmond El Encanto, downtown Santa Barbara and Montecito’s Lower Village.
