A Colorful Escape in Wine Country
Welcome to Artisan Oasis where imagination, craftsmanship, and resort-style living all come together in perfect balance.
Once owned by a renowned ceramic artist, this transformed 1960's ranch house in the midst of Los Olivos is full of color, creativity and comfort! Having just completed a head-to-toe makeover (2014), great care was taken to honor the artful and eclectic roots of the artist, while adding upscale luxury appointments and quality in every detail. The tiles throughout the home were all hand-made and installed meticulously with a flair for creating a mosaic nature story that speaks of earth, sky, streams and the ocean.
With a plan to create a relaxed yet refined experience, the design team was laser focused on natural fabrics, found objects from local craftsmen, and vibrant, carefully chosen original art.
The sunken Living Room features a fireplace and comfortable furnishings in neutral tones to create a soothing and relaxing space in which to unwind. The mirrored dining table under star shaped light fixtures transforms any meal into a romantic experience that sparkles. Sliding doors lead to the pool patio just outside.
The nearby Family Room is casual and relaxed with game table, flat screen TV, a second fireplace and more sliding doors to the backyard oasis.
The galley Kitchen is open and bright with richly colored granite counters. Every amenity is provided to whip up great meals, or to prepare a picnic for the day's adventures in local tasting rooms right down the street.
The Master Bedroom, with romantic king-size bed and fine linens, features a separate dressing area cloaked in designer drapes. The Master Bathroom is comfortable yet whimsical, and features amazing tile work. Sliding doors create the perfect escape hatch to slip out for a soak in the spa or to take a relaxing swim.
Two guest Bedrooms are outfitted with more fine luxury linens, one with queen-size bed, the other with two twin beds. The younger set will love the nature themed tile adornments throughout, each Bathroom laden with tile mosaics in nature's themes, making bath time fun at the end of a long busy day!
Carrying the artful themes outside, the custom tile pool will provide hours of fun for kids and adults alike. Swim with tile dolphins, rays, sea turtles, and tropical fish inlaid on the surface of the pool and spa. The backyard has obviously been built for fun in the sun, with an outdoor grill area, large dining table under the massive English Walnut, built-in poolside tile table and resort-style lounging on the pool deck. Graceful Adirondack chairs encircle the outdoor gas fire pit for all to enjoy this outdoor haven!
