This stunning multi-level Mediterranean-style home in the Santa Barbara foothills Incorporates elements of contemporary, Spanish and Italian design, and emanates an ambiance of spaciousness and light thanks to its dramatic cool white interior, open floor plan, abundance of windows and glass doors, high ceilings and recessed lighting. Terraces and a substantial patio offer world-class mountain and ocean views over approximately 1.5 acres of distinctive drought-tolerant landscaping, all while being located just a short drive from downtown Santa Barbara.
Each room, while well-defined, offers myriad opportunities to gaze beyond to neighboring spaces, both interior and exterior. The living room, for example, surrenders its casual formality to the rugged landscape showcased through a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows and French doors flanking the fireplace.
From the living room, three steps down lead to the dining room and lovely kitchen, while others ascend to the primary suite: a luxury retreat with French doors to its own terrace. Off of the kitchen, three inviting guest rooms, two of which open through French doors to a large terrace, await the most discerning guests or family members.
An upper-level sanctuary provides myriad possibilities, including a second primary suite; a family room, full bath, and fifth guest room; or in-law suite. The main room is spacious, the bedroom hosts an enchanting fireplace, and two terraces provide breathtaking ocean and mountain views.
This incredible home in Santa Barbara’s coveted foothills is just a stone's throw away from the Santa Barbara Botanical Gardens and shares many of the gardens natural gifts -- with its welcoming and versatile interior spaces, terraces, charming al fresco dining patio, and beautiful grounds -- offers a perfect venue for entertaining and family enjoyment.
