Luxurious Inspired Design on the Mesa
Like a perfect jewel perched atop a platinum setting, Villa del Oceano sparkles with designer style, rustic opulence, and a touch of Spanish charm. Newly constructed (2013), this enclave of homes occupies one of the highest bluffs on the Mesa, above the coastal landscape.
The home's architecture is pure Santa Barbara with cool stucco walls, arched doorways, wood floors and wrought iron accents. Color plays an essential role throughout the home. Vibrant fuchsia, absinthe, and sapphire blue blend with nature's palette. Every detail has been well thought out, every amenity provided.
Ultimately it is the stunning views that define this luxury home. Enter on the main level, where the Living Room with fireplace and elegant table sit under soaring beam ceilings. When opened, a wall of clever Nana doors further expand the space. The indoor and outdoor spaces blend together with seamless ease. Curl up by the fireplace with a good book or step outside with a early morning latte to take in the natural beauty of the ocean. The Channel Islands can be seen in the distance, and the twinkling neighborhood lights below create a magic backdrop after dark.
The Family Room is a casual space with fireplace, smart TV, and telescope through which dolphin sightings are a frequent occurrence. The adjacent fully stocked Kitchen with more ocean views will entice anyone to take on the meal preparation duties, or after dinner dishes!
Just outside, the balcony spans the entire length of the home. The ultimate corner sitting area high above the azure ocean, will truly feel like the heart of this spectacular vacation home. The deck connects all the south facing rooms including the Living Room, Dining Room, and Master Suite with stairs leading to the pool deck below.
The Master Suite with fireplace is large and majestic in rich colors of aubergine, platinum and brown. The Master Bathroom offers his and hers sinks, a beautifully lighted vanity, soaking tub and spacious shower. The large walk-in closet is a room all its own, with the smart addition of a stacking washer and dryer provided for convenience.
Descend the curved staircase to the lower level where a comfortable Media Room offers a large sectional couch and leather chair, flat screen TV, and wet bar. With deep green tones and rich natural brown wood, the formal Billiard Room offers yet another flat screen TV and dart board, making it a great spot for some healthy competition while keeping track of the "big game"!
3 Guest Bedrooms on the terrace level all have stunning ocean views, and each offer a lavish experience with fine linens, lofty billowing pillows, and the convenience of sliding doors to the pool terrace. A 2nd Master Suite with king-size bed has a spacious attached Bathroom. One Guest Room with 2 twin beds shares a Jack and Jill style Bathroom with another Guest Room, which is outfitted with queen-size bed. All are lovely and well appointed. Nearby is a fully equipped Laundry Room that is both organized and efficient with plenty of counter space and front loading washer/dryer.

Ultimately, this home is defined by the outdoor spaces that were strategically created to take in the spectacular views from this hilltop Mesa location. The infinity pool seems to spill over right into the blue ocean below. There is an outdoor grilling center near the pool, and a fire pit that is surrounded by plenty of built-in seating for all to enjoy quiet conversation on cool summer nights. A unique outdoor shower is attached to a downstairs guest Bathroom.
Various seating areas are perfectly placed on the ocean view terrace offering any number of places to dine, read, relax, or nap! An elegant covered Loggia features a comfortable outdoor Living Room with fireplace and is just outside the downstairs Media Room. Dining al fresco is the ultimate experience at the rustic farm table under magnificent hand crafted iron chandeliers - romance and elegance embodied.
