Located in the hills above Santa Barbara with panoramic views of the city, mountains and ocean you will find our charming home resting on an acre of beautifully landscaped yard. Reminiscent of a Tuscan retreat there are terraces that descend down the hillside offering a rose garden, citrus grove, picnic area and a horseshoe pit, all lit at night for a taste of outdoor living at its finest.
Inside you will find 2000 square feet of sophiscated charm and personal touches. You will be immediately drawn into the open plan living room that showcases 4 sets of French doors that open to the stunning yard with views from every window. There is a cozy fireplace, reclining sofa and chairs, a 70 inch smart TV with cable and DVR, and wireless internet access throughout the home.
The fully stocked kitchen is a chefs delight with a 48 inch Wolf stove, a wine cooler, Miele dishwasher, Keurig coffee maker, washer and dryer, granite countertops, and many other appreciated touches throughout. The full sized dining room is an extension of the kitchen with more french doors that allow you to dine inside yet feel that you are sitting at the base of the beautiful mountains outside.
There are three well sized bedrooms, two with king sized Tempurpedic beds, the third with two twin beds. The master bed has dual remote controls for raising each side to zero-gravity for maximum comfort while watching the 42 inch flat screen TV, or just gazing out the french doors and listening to the water fountain as you watch the sunrise over the mountains. The ensuite marble bathroom is brand new and includes a beautiful double vanity sink and very soothing rain-shower behind its beautiful glass rolling shower doors.
If your calling is to be outside, you could not find a better place to enjoy it all. The back yard and patio area of this wonderful home includes several sitting areas, a BBQ, heating lamps, a soothing fountain, and breathtaking views of the local mountains and the Pacific Ocean. If you choose to venture down the terraced hillside you will find many other wonderful nooks and crannies from which you are invited to sit and savor the peace and quiet of this special getaway. The climate in Santa Barbara makes it possible to enjoy all of this year round. Even when Santa Barbara is shrouded in morning fog, this home sits above the cloud line and in the pure sunshine.
Although you feel very secluded and private, this home is just above the famous Santa Barbara Mission and is only minutes from Downtown Santa Barbara, shopping, restaurants and any of the local beaches.
Above it all, the Tuscan Terraces await you.
Your home exceeded our expectations by a TON!
Your attention to detail and quality were so impressive.
Thank you for making our vacation an even better trip.
We WILL be back!
