Santa Barbara's Riviera - Ocean Views
Enjoy sweeping ocean, island and harbor views from this single-level, Mediterranean-designed home in Santa Barbara’s prestigious area of the Riviera. Perched on a gentle knoll overlooking the city’s famed red tile roofs and the Pacific beyond, the property draws added inspiration from its wondrous gardens and multiple fountains, idyllic pathways, sculptures and old sandstone walls, all designed to stimulate the imagination. Many secluded areas within the grounds unite delightful views with the opportunity for tranquil contemplation.
Tastefully remodeled in a traditional style with full attention to detail and quality, the home is intimate in scale without sacrificing luxury. Floors and baths are limestone with mosaic patterns employed as a cohesive element throughout. Most rooms look south to the ocean, and floor-to-ceiling windows keep the home light-filled most of the day. The cook’s kitchen combines efficiency with top-of-the-line appliances and a double Wolf gas stove. All bedrooms are en-suite, with the master offering ocean views. The very spacious study is flexible in design and can serve as a family room with TV and billiard table, a library, or as a music room. Several rooms open up to patios, while the over-sized loggia across the back of the home offers additional living and dining space looking out over the Pacific. Generous parking in the gated circular drive makes this home perfect for entertaining. Guests can watch the sun play over the sea by day and the twinkling city lights emerge at night.
