Harbor Retreat - Sophistication and Comfort at the Beach

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.

Fine construction and contemporary design are the cornerstones of this newly constructed Spanish-style detached home. Located in the desirable neighborhood of West Beach, Harbor Retreat offers easy access to the best activities in Santa Barbara. From this serene retreat, you can take a 5 minute walk and either spend a lazy day on the beach, or visit the shops, restaurants and wine tasting of lower State Street. The scenic Harbor area is only a short walk away. Visit Stearns Wharf, watch the boats come in and out while dining at one of several restaurants or purchase the local catch of the day to take home. The home is tucked away in a quiet enclave of 5 homes. Parking is easy in the attached 2-car garage.

With 2 Master Suites, privacy for couples is a noticeable benefit of the smart design of this home. The larger of two Master Suites is located on the ground level. This quiet sanctuary is well appointed with king size bed, flat screen TV, and access to a very private enclosed patio. This suite is further enhanced by the luxurious Master Bathroom. Warm earth tones and natural materials are the backdrop for spa-like amenities that include a sleek soaking tub, large walk-in slate shower with body jets & rain shower head, and large organized closets accented by sliding doors of frosted glass. Step outside to a second enclosed patio for a little sun worshipping! Up the stairs, the main floor living space is open and bright with windows facing south and west.

The comfort of the living room carries over to the dining area where a soft bench and assorted designer chairs offer eclectic seating options at the glass-top table. The Kitchen is contemporary and efficient and filled with every amenity necessary to create easy family meals, or to entertain in fine style. A skylight floods the kitchen with light, and the built-in cabinetry creates openness. A nearby covered patio offers convenience for morning coffee or afternoon wine tasting. Completing the floor plan of this main level is a bedroom with queen size bed, his & hers closets, and a hall bathroom just outside. Laundry is also located here on the main level for convenience to all the floors. On the 3rd floor, the second Master Suite is tranquil with its cool colors of blue and grey. A roof-top patio is perched off the master bedroom. It faces north to enjoy fantastic views of the Santa Ynez mountains and the Santa Barbara cityscape beyond.

A second balcony faces east for more stunning views. The Master bathroom with slate shower completes this private 3rd floor suite. The builder's respect for sustainable building practices adds ecological credibility to the fine craftsmanship throughout the home. The project is among the first Platinum LEED Certified & Green Constructed Projects in the Nation. Eco-friendly details include use of sustainable natural materials throughout, Xeriscape landscaping with rainwater cisterns. Harbor Retreat encourages you to kick your shoes off and relax at the beach, while also making you feel like a successful local, who is ready to dress-up and spend a night on the town. This fantastic property offers something for everyone, and is sure to set the stage for a fabulous Santa Barbara vacation.

It's a beautiful home in a convenient location. We felt at home away from home. Thank you for providing sand toys. The kids loved them! We felt like we had all the comforts and conveniences of home. Looking forward to more visits in the future.
