This unique post-modern home is set on approx. 3.24 acres with unobstructed ocean and island views, and located in the highly desirable Campanil Hill – a peaceful neighborhood just south of the Hope Ranch community. The home was designed by Don Pederson in 1980 and is approx. 4,415 sq. ft. with 4-bedrooms, 3 ½-baths, 3-fireplaces, a grand living room with a stunning vaulted 24 ft. cathedral ceiling, a family room, a large kitchen, a formal dining room, a large master suite, three guest suites, and an exercise room – all with ocean views. Stunning views are also enjoyed from the pool and spa surrounded by lush gardens. This beautiful equestrian estate includes incredible views from the top-notch 4-stall stable with a tack room, hay/feed storage, a half bath, and a large wash station. There’s also a riding arena and two open corrals all on well-maintained and beautifully landscaped grounds. The property is gated, fully fenced and has a 3-car garage.
The scenic beauty of this dramatically sited property is breathtaking. The gated entry opens to a beautifully landscaped private motor court where abundant gardens surround the front exterior and lead to the impressive front entry. Through double glass and wood doors, guests are greeted by the expansive entry gallery and grand living room with a towering 24 ft. tall vaulted, wood-beam ceiling accented with transom windows that allow ample light to fill the space. Massive windows open to panoramic ocean, island and valley views, and the blue of the ocean merges with the polished blue concrete floors to create an artful continuation of nature. The fireplace has a raised travertine hearth and surround and wood trim rises up 24 ft. to the ceiling. Across the room is a matching floor-to-ceiling wood accent wall with a built-in entertainment center. The formal dining room is just off the living room and enjoys ocean views and glass French doors that open to a spacious ocean view deck that also overlooks the pool terrace below. Beyond the dining room is the large kitchen with walls of windows and a sliding glass door that opens to the peaceful rear exterior deck with stunning ocean views. The kitchen has a delightful breakfast area, a separate mud room with plenty of storage and a separate door. There’s also a pantry, a large laundry room with storage cabinets, and a half-bath (powder room).
On the opposite side of the living room, guests can enjoy an inviting family room with a herringbone wood floor, a large fireplace with a raised hearth and custom tile surround, and sliding glass doors that open to a large private ocean view deck. Just off the family room is a first floor guest bedroom that offers lovely hardwood floors, a sliding glass door to an ocean view patio, a full bath and a relaxing sauna.
To the left of the entry gallery, steps lead to the upstairs guest bedroom wing with guest bedroom #2 offering a vaulted ceiling, hardwood floors and views to the verdant front gardens. A shared bath has vaulted ceilings and a double vanity. The spacious guest bedroom #3 has incredible ocean, island and Elings Park views with hardwood floor and built-in bookshelves and cabinets.
To the right of the front entry gallery, steps lead up to the expansive master bedroom wing that features incredible ocean views, a dramatic vaulted ceiling, a fireplace with a raised marble hearth and surround, and a glass door off the master bath opens to a beautiful private balcony with stunning panoramic ocean and valley views. Another great feature is the adjacent master sitting room that has a high vaulted ceiling, and a large window and transoms overlooking the front gardens. The master bath has a large tub and deck surrounded by ocean view windows. There’s also a center tile shower, a double-sided vanity with sinks, a separate toilet room, and two large walk-in closets.
The grounds offer many impressive features including a private pool and terrace that entices guests to relax and soak in the stunning Pacific Ocean and Channel Island views. Lush gardens surround the area. Located nearby is a door to the exercise room on the lower level of the home with a window to ocean views and two storage rooms. Just out of site from the pool deck, a gravel drive leads down to the middle terrace with two corrals and the thoughtfully designed barn with four open-doored stalls that allow the horses to come in and out as they please. There’s also a large riding arena in the lower terrace just below the barn.
This unique home is inviting and livable and offers unparalleled panoramic ocean, mountain and valley views with extensive landscaping and top-of-the-line equestrian facilities.
