Executive Escape — Sleek and Sophisticated in Mission Canyon

NOTE: We do not use the availability calendar on this website. Please visit Paradise Retreats website for availability information. Use the 'For Property Information and Availability Calendar' link located at the bottom of this page.

From the sweeping heights of the Santa Barbara foothills, this newly-remodeled mid-century modern home commands breathtaking views of the city and the sea beyond. Its sleek architecture and distinctive craftsmanship, combined with the use of natural materials in the open, uncluttered interiors, have created a serene environment bathed in natural light. Proudly, the home was featured in Seasons Magazine and carries the distinguished honor of having won the AIA Award (American Institute of Architects) for October 2011.

An outdoor cascading waterfall welcomes you to the main level Great Room/Living Room where rich teak walls, walnut floors and seamless glass walls combine to create a warm glow throughout the entire home.

The mood of the Living Room is set by the inviting leather sectional sofa and retro gas fireplace where flames flicker above smooth grey stones. For fun, 3D glasses have been provided to accompany the 60' flat screen HDTV for movie-night viewing. Another striking feature of this home are the Nana sliding glass doors that fold completely open to create a seamless flow from the living spaces out to expansive wrap-around decks of tropical Ipe wood.

Enjoy meal preparation in the smart kitchen equipped with state-of-the-art Dacor appliances. With honed black granite counters, teak walls and cabinets and stainless steel accents, your culinary choices are unlimited. Diners perched at the breakfast bar that seats 3 can share the cook's efforts or join in conversations in the Living Room. Or, more formally, a lovely illusion of indoor-outdoor dining is experienced at the nearby glass dining table poised before the Nana doors.

The guest bedrooms are located on the main floor. With a wall of glass, the west bedroom faces the shady hillside with sounds echoing from the entry fountain. A custom queen-size platform bed is built-into a wall of local sandstone that literally melds into the garden. The east bedroom with queen-size bed offers glass doors to the wrap around deck and a full bath with walk-in shower.

If work responsibilities beckon during your stay, the office is a calm space that holds a contemporary desk overlooking views of the grassy hillside and the rock-lined seasonal creek just outside.

Descend the glass-lined stairway to the lower-level Master Suite. Continuing in minimalist style, the bedroom is peaceful and spacious with a platform King-size bed, sitting area and private balcony with sweeping coastal views.

The Master Bath provides an elegant spa experience from the large soaking tub to the scenic views from the glass shower. Ultimately, however, the crowning touch is the full-size Finlandia Sauna where the effects of the most stress filled day or the aching muscles from the most energetic activities will melt away.

A bonus room off the Master Bedroom balcony has been converted to an awesome home gym with a club-style spinning bike, weights, ball, bands and yoga mats. There is no athletic club in town with this spectacular view! Swing open the Nana doors and enjoy cool breezes while you ride.

Whatever the reasons for your getaway, Executive Escape is a blank canvas waiting for you to create the perfect retreat experience. Day and night, the ever-changing views and the essential serenity of this beautiful home will offer you unforgettable beauty and tranquility.

The Perfect Setting

Review submitted: February 27, 2014   Date of arrival: January 31, 2014

(Transcribed from the guestbook at the house)

We wanted to relax and tap into our creative side as we planned key opportunities for futures business objectives. We opted not to stay at a hotel and you home was the perfect setting to accomplish these goals. After spending our days grossed in manning and mental exercises we enjoyed every aspect of this lovely property. What an amazing environment to review relationships, refresh business goals and recommit ourselves to continued success. Thank you for sharing your home our time was well spent.
