Contemporary Mediterranean meets Modernism in this masterfully designed Santa Barbara home, resting on a quiet street in coveted Park Highlands. Ocean, Channel Island, and mountain views abound on the nearly one-acre estate. A circular drive, tasteful landscaping, and an intimate portico introduce the residence. The foyer, gallery hallway, and living room bathe in the light of multiple large skylights, and an abundance of tall windows and recessed lighting. A stunning fireplace with dark green marble mantle and floor-to-ceiling hearth is flanked by built-in cabinetry and French doors. The formal dining room is no less dramatic and certainly no less spacious. It seats at least a dozen guests. The room also features a multi-tier tray ceiling, as well as a bar and a wall of tall windows. French doors open to a courtyard and outdoor kitchen complete with a built-in gourmet barbecue and overhead radiant heaters.
The master suite, in its own wing of the home, has a double walk-in closet, a den or office, a kitchenette, and a luxurious bath with step-up soaking tub, steam shower, and dual sinks.
The living area also hosts the kitchen and family room. In addition to high-end appliances, abundant cabinet space and a vaulted skylighted ceiling, the kitchen features a walk-in pantry, center island with seating for 10, an informal eating area, and French doors to the dining courtyard. The center island overlooks the family room and its wall of built-in cabinetry, stone fireplace, tray ceiling and French doors to the terrace.
The sprawling multi-level terrace overlooks the pool, poolside pergola, hot tub and tennis court; all set amidst a wide variety of exotic fruit and flowering trees planted throughout this ideal backyard for large scale entertainment. A spacious 3-car garage and motor home parking completes this spectacular estate.
