Overview

Property Details

Updated: Apr 28, 2015
4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 10

Overlooking the red tile roofs of Santa Barbara, Grande Vista offers spectacular 270 degree city and ocean views from 'The American Riviera'. Located on a private lane near the site of the historical and world picturesque Brooks Photographic Institute, magnificent coastal views can be captured from this hilltop location among shady oak canyons.

An air of openness and tranquility is felt from the dramatic stairways of this split level home with soaring ceilings and an abundance of windows capturing the coastal sunlight. The beautiful views encompass not only the city and ocean beyond but also the lovely canyon in which the home is set.

The Living Room on the upper level invites relaxed entertaining with a cozy fireplace and baby grand piano. Sliding doors open to a charming balcony.

The Great Room on the lower level will be a favorite gathering spot, with a wood burning fireplace, dining table for 8 and a full kitchen with seating at a butcher block central island. A Sonos music system adds to the list of amenities. Step out to the terrace with a seating area, barbecue and stairs leading down to the enclosed pool patio below.

The spacious Master Suite with fireplace is located on a private third level. French doors lead to yet another private patio and sunlight streams in from more floor to ceiling windows. A sunny side room has a queen-size futon for added sleeping options. French doors lead to a balcony overlooking the private wooded canyon below. The Master Suite patio is conveniently connected to the Living Room terrace by external stairs.

The spa-like Master Bathroom provides numerous amenities including Thermasol sauna and steam shower, double sinks, Jacuzzi tub, and heated towel racks.

The two bedrooms on the middle level have queen size beds and share a 'Jack and Jill' style bathroom with rain shower head over soaking tub. This side of the home overlooks the seasonal creek under large shady oaks.

The 4th room, with a queen size bed faces the front of the home. French doors in this room open to the entry patio with its tranquil fountain and seating just outside. A convenient hall bathroom with walk-in shower is nearby.

The central hub of the property, with more mesmerizing views, is the enclosed pool terrace. A built-in hot tub connected to the sparkling salt water pool will be a favorite relaxing spot after a long day of shopping along State Street or hiking one of the many local trails nearby.

The hidden treasure of this unique hillside property is the proximity to a seasonal creek canyon full of native flora and delightful aromas. Under shady oaks, several terraced stone patios have been carved out of the hillside overlooking the creek bed. The main patio with seating area and built-in railing is great for sunset cocktails or after-dinner star gazing. The lower circular terrace is encircled by pine trees and is an especially peaceful place for morning meditations or yoga at dawn.

Any trip to Santa Barbara should include taking the rim drive along Alameda Padre Serra (or APS as locals call it); you can make this home your wonderful little bit of paradise along this world class scenic drive. Get ready to relax and enjoy, because Grande Vista makes it easy to do both! Please note that there is a strict three car maximum at this property.

Amazing Property Inside and Out

  • 5 of 5
This property is magical. It's even better in real life than the stunning photos. Seems like a lot was upgraded... new pool tiles, new plaster, everything was painted fresh.

The views are like nothing we have seen in Santa Barbara - no obstructions and almost 270 degrees. The whole family loved the salt water heater pool.

Really special property and experience.

Sincerely,

Linda and Robert DiGregio

Great family retreat

  • 5 of 5
This house is a gem. The hillside setting provides breathtaking views of sunrises and sunsets over the ocean. The pool table, piano and outdoor pool, jacuzzi and terraced trails will make you happy to stay home and play. Decor is charming. The telescope did not work.

Reviewer Comments:
First, the views throughout the home are gorgeous. You can see sunsets and sunrises. With the pool table, games, and outdoor fire pit, pool and jacuzzi, we could have stayed in the house all week and had a great time. The location is great and the decor is lovely. The telescope did not work and the kitchen equipment could use some updating, but overall this house is a gem.

Nice Location- a little worn

  • 3 of 5
First the good news: The location is beautiful with great views both day and night. It accommodated our group just fine relative to the number of people. Now, the not so good news: In it's day, this home was a showplace, but now it is in poor repair. The bathroom window casing is broken, there were spider webs everywhere (even though we made a special call based upon a previous review to have it sprayed) and the floors and window sills were coated in dirt and dust. The grounds need serious work as everything is overgrown and unattractive. This house may be fine for the twenty-something crowd who wouldn't notice, but this 50's crowd won't be renting again.

We had a group stay for a wedding in Santa Barbara and it was a terrific experience. The house was beautiful, clean and all instructions for checking in and working everything was spot on. Check in and check out was a breeze. Did I mention this home is wonderful? Amazing views, good privacy, very well kept.
