Property Description:

This expansive French-country estate has all the finishes of a high end Montecito mansion yet is nestled within the convenience and beauty of the Santa Barbara foothills. The 4600 square foot custom home is a combination of old world European charm mixed with modern-day design and affords 4 bedrooms plus a ''secret'' bonus room and Primary Suite Office, as well as 4 full bathrooms and 1 powder room. Upon approach, one will be greeted with the happy chirping of birds as well as the joyful sounds of the grotto-style fountain built into the hillside of the home. The polished limestone foyer with 18-foot ceilings displays an elegant chandelier and sweeping staircase with a custom wrought iron and oak banister. The first floor of the home consists of a formal Living Room with french doors openi to stunning ocean views, a formal Dining Room, and a cozy Living Room - each with it's own stately fireplace. Through a door in the formal Dining Room is a spacious Butler's Pantry, equipped with full-size refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, and custom cabinetry. The gourmet Kitchen will be a delight to any chef and features marble countertops, Sub-Zero custom built-in refrigerator, a microwave drawer, two Fisher & Payke dishwashers, and an imported French professional 7-burner Lacanche range. For those who do not want to retreat upstairs for bed, there is a downstairs bedroom and full bathroom on the first level of the home. Up the top of the stairs is a spacious central landing which leads to a laundry room and 3 bedroom suites each with high ceilings, bright windows, and private full bathrooms. Off one of the bathrooms is a surprise bonus room that can be used as a playroom, yoga studio, or even soundproof music room. Retreat to the luxurious Primary Suite with it's own fireplace, custom walk-in closet, and separate office with private flagstone terrace. The Primary Bathroom has heated travertine floors, glassed-in shower for two and an extra deep soaking tub with views out to the Pacific. Back downstairs, the Living Room leads out to one of the most spectacular parts of the home... the outdoor entertainment pavilion. Enjoy the Santa Barbara outdoors all year round in this incredible extension of living space. The fully covered outdoor kitchen provides a professional grade pizza oven, fireplace, raised bar, lounge area, dining area, TV, Sonos speakers, and overhead heaters & fans. Tucked around the corner is a private fire pit seating area created to sneak away and enjoy the views. The incredible 1.8 acre property has been thoughtfully landscaped with indigenous plantings for both beauty and function inviting birds and bees alike. The extensive retaining walls not only provide stability, but create beautiful levels of gardens, a peaceful waterfall, and the private space for a Hot Springs Therapy Spa. Feel free to park in the garage, although you may enjoy using this space outfitted with epoxy floors, custom cabinetry, and work station for more than just your cars! This peaceful and secluded view estate is just moments away from Uptown Santa Barbara and provides easy access to Downtown, Goleta, and of course, our beloved hiking trails and beaches.
