California Colonial | Santa Ynez Valley, CA
When elegance and grandeur meet old world architectural detail focused around a massive courtyard and fountain, Spanish and Mediterranean influences meld to achieve a sense of timelessness and serenity. The spectacular residence enjoys awe inspiring views from all living areas. In true colonial style the intricately detailed entry doors and woodwork throughout the living rooms exemplify the feeling of substance and quality that confirms a residence that will stand the test of time. Juxtaposing with the massive ceilings and windows is a feeling of warmth that invites family and friends to break bread and enjoy wine from the boutique vineyard of Syrah and Pinot Gris. A stunning foyer features cathedral ceilings, a custom hand forged chandelier and a handcrafted bar opens to a game room with fireplace. Family and friends gather around the expansive center island and enjoy a well appointed chef's kitchen. Ascend the dramatic staircase to the impressive master suite featuring a lovely sitting room and fireplace, two en-suite baths, and generous walk-in closets.
