Panoramic views of the ocean, islands, and downtown Santa Barbara provide the stunning backdrop for this newly built 2,134+/- sq. ft. stucco hacienda. Nestled on 5+/- acres of serene hillside, the 3-bedroom, 2-bath Old Spanish-style abode enjoys a peaceful mountain setting with quick access to city amenities.
Taking its cues from early California architecture, the home incorporates classic details such as wrought iron fixtures, red-tiled roof, and Saltillo tile floors with the advantages of new construction.
A finely carved front door opens to a spectacular expanse of mountain-to-sea views. From the foyer with its floral tilework, the casual, open concept layout begins with a fireplaced living room and skylit dining room. French doors access a wide covered veranda with ceiling fans.
Perfect for stargazing, entertaining, or just soaking in coastline views from Campus Point to the Santa Barbara marina, the raised veranda is hedged by lavender and descends to stone paths leading to tiered gardens. Native oaks, pines, and giant boulders stud the surrounding mountainside which is known for its hiking trails.
A patio with gas firepit, orange tree and oceanview is accessed from the master bedroom or kitchen. Paved walkways lead through a cactus garden and to a fenced backyard. A red-tiled roof outbuilding (unpermited) provides storage.
The skylit kitchen evokes a rustic, Western style with its painted tilework and forest green cabinetry which includes a built-in wine rack and wood-top breakfast bar. New stainless steel appliances include GE 5-burner gas stove, dishwasher, and refrigerator.
A brick coved-ceiling hallway with nooks for artwork leads to the oceanview master bedroom suite featuring a beamed ceiling, corner gas fireplace and large walk-in closet. The enormous tiled master bath has a carved wood commode with double copper sinks. The skylit jetted tub enjoys garden views while a separate shower overlooks the ocean.
The mountainview study has built-in bookcases and a wide desk. An adjoining laundry area provides cabinet storage and Whirlpool washer and dryer.
A separate bedroom wing shares a full bath with tiled tub/shower and an antique commode with copper sink. One bedroom has a stone accent wall with built-in bookcases and gorgeous ocean and city views. The second bedroom has a tranquil canyon view with French doors opening to a patio.
Offering unparalleled privacy, a relaxed lifestyle and truly inspiring views, this fine mountain retreat is a convenient 12-minute drive to Santa Barbara shops and the 101, less than 30 minutes to wine country, and within the desirable Mountain View School district. Attached two-car garage with storage space.
This property is also offered for rent at $5,000/month.
