About This Home
Located in the most prestigious pocket of homes on Bel Air Drive, this 4 BR / 2.5 BA home is positioned halfway between downtown Santa Barbara and the beach, offering unparalleled panoramic city, mountain and ocean views. An extensive renovation was just completed on this stunning French cottage adding an entry-level master suite and blending old world charm with modern conveniences for a luxurious yet low maintenance estate.
A private lane leads from Bel Air Drive to a small enclave of homes nestled among mature oak trees. This spectacular home has been taken down to the studs and extensively rebuilt, enlarging the home and adding 350 square feet of decking to fully enjoy the stunning views. All the main living areas, including the master suite are on the entry level—leaving the downstairs for guests and extra entertaining space. The exterior was redesigned to present a charming facade reminiscent of the French countryside, including antiqued wooden shutters, new carriage-style garage door, carriage-house lighting and cupola, a vine-covered trellis and a Dutch style front entry door.
