4BR/3BA Luxury Home With Ocean Views and Stunning Pool!

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 17, 2014
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.

Reviewer Comments:
We stayed at this property for one week. The location is fantastic and the views are amazing. The house was nice, a lttle worn and had some spider webs when we arrived. The backyard was also a little worn. There were a few plants and pots that were in rough shape and/or dead. We found it hard to describe since overall the house is very nice and has great views and the gardens are quite nice as well but some plants and trees probably need more attention. The house is like staying in a Tuscan Villa. Quite nice, but not perfect. <br/><br/>The pool was also quite dirty and had old tiles falling off. The chlorine pot was empty so Turnkey did have the pool guy come by. The pool actually had algae growing in it. When the pool guy came by to clean I mentioned the algae and he said that can happen in the nooks and cracks in the pool as it is hard to get to when cleaning. I thought this was a funny statement as I have grown up with pools in my backyard and know that as long as the pH and chlorine etc levels are maintained then the algae will not grow regardless.<br/><br/>Found TurnKey was very responsive to any of our concerns. They always followed up in a very timely manner.

Very nice, The home needs updating and I would rate the overall cleanliness a 3<br/>Master suite a 4. Outdoor furniture very dirty. There were pool tiles that fell off and haven't been replaced. The pool bottom had holes in it but was very clean. We tried to use the oven on the last day and it didn't work.

Reviewer Comments:
The house was in good order and clean. The views were amazing and the house was as indicated in the pictures. There was plenty of room for all of us and everyone had their own space. We did identify a few things which were broken and not working properly but we're not corrected/fixed by the time we checked out. The internet router was an issue for all guests trying to connect to the internet I would recommend an upgrade. The other issue was a neighbor which was behind the home. He did complain about the noise at 5 o'clock in the afternoon. Other than those few things I would recommend this house to anyone else who would like to stay in Santa Barbara.

The home was just great for our family. Plenty of space for the 6 of us. Views were absolutely amazing. Pool and hot tub were great. Kitchen was very nice. Needed a little more equipment for the size of the home, but the office was attentive to our needs.

Great communication throughout!

  • 4 of 5
The turnkey team was great with communicating pre and post visit items. Even during the stay, there were issues with spiders and the pool not being cleaned, but they addressed it once we emailed and called them the next day. I would rent from their properties again in the future.

The house itself was wonderful and the views were incredible. The only issue we had were the ants. They were everywhere. It was not enough to negatively impact our trip but I would recommend requesting the house be sprayed to help decrease the number of bugs.
