Adjacent to the kitchen via a swinging door, the cozy family room is an inviting space to enjoy a favorite story on either the page or the screen. A custom built-in television unit is surrounded by numerous shelving, and a nearby desk provides an integrated workspace. With access to the rear yard, the family room offers a secluded escape that still allows one to easily stay connected to all other areas of the home.

Private Spaces


Private Spaces



Completing the first floor, privately situated on the northeast corner of the home, a welcoming master suite is both cozy and spacious. 

The octagonal shape allows balanced natural light, while also adding an intimate feel to the bedroom; and a Dutch door to the backyard beckons the scent of citrus, lavender and rose blossoms into the room.

On the second floor, four generous bedrooms, and two bathrooms, overlook lush lawns and offer a rarely seen glimpse of the surrounding neighborhood. Window seats provide the perfect spot for daydreaming, and built-in shelves are ideal for books and treasures. The four gabled bedrooms increase the architectural appeal of Stern’s timeless design. A large laundry room includes an abundance of additional storage space, allowing the detached oversized two-car garage to remain a garage and not additional storage for all of life’s acquisitions.

Under the watchful eye of the Santa Ynez mountains, this property is filled with an impressive assortment of fruit trees, cacti, mature trees, and a varietal of all sorts of shrubs and flowers.

It’s the ideal spot to spend the day sitting outside watching wildlife circling throughout the open skies, then to settle in and enjoy twilight as the mountains come alive with the always majestic incandescent glow.
