Design Perfection and Ocean Views on the Riviera
Simple elegance describes this beautiful property on the American Riviera, high above the bright city lights of Santa Barbara. With tasteful attention to the finer details of design and guests' comfort, this newly restored property offers everything the well-seasoned world traveler expects in a luxury vacation rental experience. The views of sunrise to the east, and the sunsets over the ocean in the west, are spectacular from this hilltop location. In a quiet neighborhood, and with a gated driveway, privacy and parking are assured.
Living spaces are uncluttered and fresh, with an emphasis on natural fabrics, neutral colors, and European antiques. The Living Room and the adjacent Dining Room benefit from the warm, ambiant glow of the fireplace. Hard wood floors throughout add yet another element of natural beauty. Picture windows frame the ocean views — just outside, the herringbone brick deck echoes the red tile roofs, and vibrant colors of Santa Barbara below. With a gas grill, fire pit, seating area, and dining just inside on the pine farm table, each meal will be a tasty, and tasteful, experience. Stairs lead from the deck to the lower garden area and driveway.
The Kitchen, with black honed granite counters and bright white cabinets, is perfect for the creative cook to take advantage of the well-equipped culinary hub. With plenty of dishes and serving pieces, an elegant dinner, or casual meal, is effortless, and always beautiful. Professional appliances including a 5-burner Viking stovetop, dual ovens, and Sub-Zero refrigerator, add to the list of fine quality amenities.
Two north facing Bedrooms complete the floor plan on the main level of the home — each is outfitted in style with luxurious linens atop queen-size beds. A Hall Bathroom is convenient to both Bedrooms on this floor.
Downstairs, the Master Suite is a restful and romantic environment with comfortable king-size bed and remote controlled gas fireplace. The convenience of a door to the lower yard offers a private entrance to this suite from the driveway. With spa-like freshness and a bright white palette, the Master Bathroom — with dual sinks, spa tub, and walk-in shower with rain shower head — is lavishly appointed. The long-term guest will truly appreciate the large walk-in closet. Other features on this lower level are a fully equipped Laundry Room and peaceful Sitting Room.
The lush, pretty garden surrounds the artificial turf lawn, a perfect place for kids to play safely, or adults to sit and have quiet conversation. Plenty of landscape lighting adds a wonderful glow after hours. Walk the neighborhood, take a 5-minute drive to shop or dine downtown, or venture out on nearby hiking trails. From here, there is so much to do and see, and only minutes from the front door!
