Bella Vista - Designer Comfort & Private Tennis Court in Carpinteria

Bella Vista - Designer Comfort & Private Tennis Court in Carpinteria


Property Details

Updated: Dec 20, 2014
House, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

At the base of the Carpinteria foothills, this 5 acre property is a virtual playground. The sprawling grounds and single story ranch-style home orient primarily towards the majestic Santa Ynez Mountains overlooking the valley floor carpeted with orchards and nurseries. The lush natural landscape spans all the way to scenic coastline where amazing sunsets shed vibrant colors across the foothills. Ocean and mountain views, the best of both worlds!

Without a doubt the backyard is the central hub for all outside activity at Bella Vista. The patio terrace anchors the yard where decks, stone patios, and flat lawn create an outdoor oasis for entertaining and relaxation. Tennis players will love the lighted court for day or nighttime matches. There is also a basketball hoop, Bocce Ball, Pickle Ball, Croquet and Horseshoes, something for everyone!

An outdoor Kitchen features a wood burning pizza oven and teak dining table with an oversize custom sun umbrella for plenty of shade on hot days. Sit comfortably in the low, wide chairs around the gas fire pit perched at the edge of the vast orchards. In the lower portion of the orchard, a recreation area has been carved out adding yet another location to fully enjoy the peaceful setting. For the active guests, there is a bocce ball court, horseshoe pit and flat lawn for croquet. The large farm table and second arbor covered outdoor kitchen create yet another great location for memorable entertaining. Enjoy morning coffee or a nightcap while watching hawks soar high above the orchard.

The spa under the shade of a large Magnolia has ocean views by day, and wonderful pendant lighting above to enhance the experience after dark. full size day bed nearby adds to the options for enjoying a lazy afternoon nap while 2 other seating areas on this deck provide more than enough places for all guests to have their own quiet space.

Inside, the Great Room, centrally located between two separate bedroom wings, is a large open space with sleek hardwood floors under soaring truss beam ceilings. Step up to the warm, inviting area where walls of windows and a wide comfortable window seat frame the foothill views. Snuggle into the large sectional sofa and enjoy the central features of this warm space - the fireplace with custom iron work and 65" flat screen TV.

The large open Kitchen will be a pleasure in which to create culinary magic with professional style appliances, colorful dishes, and a variety of tools and serving pieces. There is an abundance of counter space. The warm and sunny Dining area seats 10 while an expansive breakfast bar seats 6, all with added treat of ocean views!

Step outside the Great Room through sliding doors to the arbor covered terrace, where a large dining table that seats 12 overlooks the expansive lawn and mountain views. A tranquil fountain and landscape lighting enhance the ambiance.

The Formal Living Room focuses on the mountain views through a wall of windows. Seating centers around the semi-circular sofa and chaise lounge and a wall of fully stocked bookshelves offers an abundance of classic reads and best sellers for guest enjoyment. A high top table seats 8 for game night or added casual dining with French doors to the arbor terrace.

Two wings offer a total of 5 bedroom options for guests. In the west wing is the Master Suite with king-size bed, full bathroom, and a peak at the ocean. Bedroom Suite #2 with queen-size bed also has a full Bathroom.

An adjacent exercise room offers an elliptical and wall mounted TV. Bedroom #3 with 2 twin beds faces the backyard through corner windows.

In the east wing a slight incline ramp leads up to both bedrooms. Bedroom #4 has a queen-size bed and an outside entrance for convenient yard access or to pop out to the tennis court. Bedroom Suite #5 faces the tennis court as well through corner windows and has a full bathroom making this virtually the 3rd Master Suite in the home. All the Bedrooms are well appointed and comfortable.

With so much to do at Bella Vista, it will be difficult to leave, but make a point of visiting the pristine beaches and quaint ocean side town of Carpinteria, just a short drive away. Montecito is a 10 minute drive and Santa Barbara is 15 minutes away. The world class surfing destination, Rincon Point is a short drive as well.

This very special property has been designed for fun, activity, entertaining, and relaxation but it is the spectacular setting that sets the tone for a memorable vacation. Bella Vista, "beautiful views," lives up to its name and more!

Note: This is a working ranch and there may periodically be workers in the orchards and/or a caretaker staying on the property.

Guestbook comments from the manager

(Transcribed from guestbook at the property)

What a wonderful vacation my family had at Bella Vista! We were here with our grown children and their spouses, my mother from Chicago, and our grandson (10 in total). Everyone enjoyed all the sports activities on the property. We enjoyed the hot tub, the sunsets from the back deck, the pizza oven--we had a pizza competition one night! We loved the outdoor fire pit the most, having a fire every night and some mornings too. We made salads and veggie dishes every day from the garden. We enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner on the patio table. Enjoyed fires in the family room fireplace too! The beds were very comfortable. All in all a fabulous week! We would love to return.
