Step through the front door into the foyer, and you are immediately enveloped by serene elegance, clean lines and thoughtful design. Recently and meticulously remodeled, this home’s single-level convenience, move-in-ready comfort, and timeless style is evident throughout. The living room is the center of the home, both literally and figuratively, with beautiful ocean vistas on full display. A subtle white brick fireplace on the front wall is topped by a sleek dark wood mantle, whitewashed oak floors underfoot lend a polished look.

Warm and cozy, yet at the same time bright and airy, this room sets the tone for the entire house. Gorgeous beam ceilings draw all eyes toward the picture window and through glass doors to the inviting back yard, where a stately sycamore tree stands sentinel to the panoramic ocean view.

A sweeping patio runs the length of the living room, extending the living space outdoors and inviting the natural beauty in. You’ll spend quiet mornings watching the sunrise over the foothills, and enjoy all-season entertaining in the temperate, year-round Mediterranean climate for which Santa Barbara is known.

The dining room soaks in the scenery with a huge window on one wall, while a curved brick hearth in the opposite corner is topped by a statement-making slate grey fireplace. Dinnertime will sparkle with the magic light of golden hour filtering in as the sun sets, being subtly replaced by the glow from the fireplace as evening turns to night.

The kitchen stands poised for the most discerning of gourmet endeavors as well as readily outfitted for fun. An oversized marble island anchors the center of the space, with copious room for prep, play, or polish off your latest creation. A blend of open shelving and stylish cabinetry is offset by white herringbone tile on one wall, and an expanse of windows on another. This is a room that will please everyone, with a built-in Miele espresso maker as a perfect bonus perk.

The kitchen is open to the family room, forming a welcoming setting for binge watching your favorite show, a quiet reading zone, and everything in between. Generous built-ins provide chic display space plus ample stylish storage.

 The master suite is accessed through a private hallway, and is a self-contained sanctuary. In the spacious bedroom, a fireplace in one corner boasts a wide hearth and shiplap surround, and is framed on either side by impressive view windows.

Wake up to an ocean view every morning while enjoying breakfast in bed, or spend romantic nights ensconced in your cozy sitting area. 

An expansive walk-in closet sits next to the sumptuous master bathroom. Sleek grey cabinetry topped with white marble sinks and spare chrome fixtures combine for a striking minimalist motif. The oversized shower features a window with an oceanview, but the freestanding bathtub steals the show with a panoramic vista overlooking your lemon orchard and lovely private grounds.

From the master hallway, double doors provide private access to the south-facing patio, for dining, entertaining, or simply watching the light transform the colors of the landscape into an ever-changing view throughout the day. 




Two additional en suite bedrooms are generously sized with stylish full baths. No detail was overlooked in the design of these rooms, with hand-hewn tiles, tasteful fixtures, and a sophisticated muted palette throughout.

 

The home’s fourth bedroom doubles as a great office or space of projects.

 

Steps from the main house, a detached second garage provides flexible space that can serve as a separate media room, home office, or playroom. The lush grounds are ripe for opportunity to develop your ideal estate. Ample room for a pool, cabana, orchard, or an ADU, the expansive lot allows you to dream big and live large!  

 
 

Whatever your preferred version of luxury living, this hilltop compound by the sea provides myriad options inside and out, offering complete privacy yet conveniently located to the dining, boutiques, and world-class beaches of Montecito. Move-in convenience and an impeccable lifestyle await in this idyllic hideaway.
