Once inside the home, oil rubbed European oak floors anchor smooth, white walls and create a peaceful and calming atmosphere.
A dramatic living room opens to both the central courtyard as well as the ocean view terrace. Flooded with natural light, this space is perfect for entertaining, relaxing by the fire, or simply taking in the ever-changing coastal views. Overhead, the original 14-foot, open-beam, wood-truss ceiling crowns the living room and serves as an agent of Edward and Plunkett’s incredible design.
Through a wide arched doorway, a formal living room waits for celebrations of all sizes. With ample room to seat a crowd yet intimate enough for a party of two, the dining room will quickly become an integral part of the home.
The expansive epicurean kitchen is a chef’s dream. Flooded with natural light, this thoughtfully designed space is perfect for creating, spectating, sampling and indulging. Creamy Carrera counters and chic white cabinets compliment professional appliances and an oversized farmhouse sink. The adjacent family room, complete with a cozy fireplace, creates an open, great room feel.
French doors extend an invitation to the central courtyard, as well as the beautiful side gardens and bocce court. The fluidity of indoor and outdoor spaces establishes a breezy cohesion throughout the estate.
Two, nearly identical master suites offer elegant accommodations. Located on opposite sides of the main living spaces, these private suites open to the expansive, south facing, ocean view terrace.
Each suite, complete with a gorgeous white marble bath and a walk in closet, is a welcome respite at the end of a busy day. On the northerly wing of the home, two additional bedroom suites offer comfortable spaces for friends and loved ones. These suites, with cozy fireplaces and garden views, are wonderfully private.
Outside, the seaside terrace is your window to the world. Perched privately above the street and protected by lush landscaping, this terrace is a wonderful destination.
Whether it’s morning coffee by the fountain, warm nights next to the fireplace or watching the sunset from the rooftop deck, this expansive space defines Santa Barbara style and the California Dream.
