Located in a prime location, just outside of Hope Ranch and minutes to downtown Santa Barbara, 3219 Cliff Drive offers the ultimate embodiment of the California Dream.
Inside the gates of this newly renovated Mediterranean estate is a sense of peace and privacy.
Entering the foyer, beautiful sight lines draw your eye out to the southern ocean and Channel Islands, while the northern view is framed by foothill vistas. Perfectly poised between these two forces of nature, 3219 Cliff Drive captures all of Santa Barbara's incredible natural beauty in one remarkable setting.
The living room features hand scraped oak floors, built-in shelving, and a beautiful Jerusalem limestone fireplace. Robust beams adorn vaulted ceilings, though the undisputed focal point is the coastline and ocean view.
Step outside to a wonderful covered patio, perfect for entertaining and enjoying the salty sea air.
A barrel vaulted doorway, wrapped in white millwork, leads to the beautiful dining room. Ideal for intimate dinners or holiday feasts, this space offers a chic oasis for entertaining. Large French windows open to the front courtyard and views of the foothills, ensuring that Mother Nature's finest has a seat at the table for every occasion.
The ocean view kitchen will delight the most experienced chefs and even inspire reluctant bakers. Gorgeous white millwork blends with Brazilian quartzite countertops to create an elegant and inviting palette. Professional appliances, a large island, and a well-appointed butler's pantry ensure that the kitchen is more than just eye-candy; it's a place to gather, create and celebrate.
A graceful archway leads to the adjacent breakfast nook and family room, making this the natural heart of the home. Cantina folding door walls dissolve the boundaries between indoors and out, and allow for morning lattes to be accompanied by the soothing sounds of the waves on the beach.
The southern and eastern ends of the breakfast nook open to the ocean view terrace and integrate the great outdoors with the beauty within.
Divided into four areas - a sitting room, bedroom, bath, and wardrobe - the master is a perfect respite from the busy world. From the sitting room, folding Cantina door walls open to a private patio. A beautiful gas fireplace warms the space on cool mornings and adds an incandescent glow in the evenings. Gorgeous builtins anchor the room and offer wonderful storage options.
The luxe master bath rivals your favorite five-star hotel with exquisite creature comforts and amenities. Heated floors and lighted mirrors are essential practicalities, and custom bronze finished fixtures and a full slab marble shower are impressive indulgences.
Upstairs, two spacious en-suite bedrooms accompany a large bonus room, office, and a library.
Each of the bedrooms and their attached baths was designed with ultimate comfort in mind. Walk-in closets, custom Durango travertine counters, frameless shower doors, and Newport Bronze fixtures add luxe details for guests and loved ones. A second staircase leads to the fourth en-suite bedroom. Privately located in a wing of its own, this space could be ideal for a nursery, gym, or private office. The fifth en suite bedroom, nestled on the north west side of the main floor has a private entrance.
The large bonus room is a natural gathering space and perfect for watching the big game, late night slumber parties, or an expansive playroom. Large windows flood the room with light and overlook the classic red tiled roof and out to the foothills beyond.
The large, ocean view office looks down the coastline towards Santa Barbara and has a private terrace. Built-in cabinets are perfect for personals, papers, and plans, and the expansive ocean views are an inspiration for every occasion.
Should you want a more intimate workspace, the north facing library is a welcome retreat and secluded study. Built-in bookshelves host a vast literary collection and French doors open to a Juliet balcony.
Multiple patio spaces offer a large, fluid platform for social gatherings as well as intimate scenes for private moments around the fire pit.
The spacious three-car garage has been beautifully finished to the same level of detail as the main residence. Gleaming epoxy floors are perfect to highlight your every-day-driver, a surf van, or maybe a weekend roadster. Adjacent to the garage, a wonderful wine room can host an impressive collection or could easily be used as a yoga/pilates studio.
Many thoughtful details throughout the home go quietly unnoticed yet contribute greatly to a comfortable quality of life. Water efficient succulent gardens mingle with boxwood hedges to create a playful yet formal welcome to the 1.32-acre grounds and perfectly capture the home's effortless blend of elegance and ease. Three zones of AC help regulate temperature year round. A generator provides power to the entire home in the case of an outage. Three on-demand, tankless water heaters are both convenient and water-wise. Intuitive smart home touchpads control lights, fireplaces, ceiling fans and motorized shades, while IPads control the HVAC systems, state of the art electronics, Sonos sound system, and security and internal communication systems. These details and many more create an elevated living experience.
Located in a prime Santa Barbara location, just outside Hope Ranch and moments away from downtown, this incredible home offers the ease and spirit of beach living with the quality and luxury of a legacy estate.
