Harbor Retreat - Sophistication and Comfort at the Beach

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 warm floors of Teragran bamboo, combined with natural colors and surfaces, create a relaxed space to unwind. An ultra-suede couch w/ chaise lounge faces the flat screen TV.

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. This unique complex, its architects, and designers have received numerous Awards of Merit for design and construction.

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.

We are a family of five traveling to Yosemite from San Diego but we decide to make a stop in a city we haven't been and you nailed it ! because Santa Barbara is great and Harbor Retreat was excellent. We enjoy every place of the house, the kitchen is beautiful the family room is spacious the whole house has a nice decoration, we love to have five balconies with different views, the beds were comfortable and the showers as well. We can't wait to get back ASAP, Harbor Retreat + Santa Barbara = Great Vacation !

Beautiful house, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This house has three suites on three floors, all really nice. The only king bed is on a ground floor level. The kitchen is fully equipped and the house has everything you need even for longer stays. Very bright with lots of windows and terraces. The house is new and very clean. The location is excellent, close to public beach and two piers. We walked two blocks to the park and played tennis on public courts. It is in walking distance to restaurants and shops, we discovered a short cut over the railway tracks on a last day... We were very pleased with our stay.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This was an absolutely perfect place to stay for our vacation! We loved the convenience to the beach and other activities within walking distance. Our group appreciated the privacy of the three bedrooms on different floors. The open space in the great room/kitchen area is perfect for gathering together as a group. This property had everything we needed and more! Would definitely stay here again!

The Harbor Retreat was exactly that! A retreat - our vacation home was beautifully decorated and in a perfect location. We biked, hiked, played golf, and walked down by the pier - all were just minutes away. Our home had all the amenities that we needed for a group of 6! We would definitely stay here again!
