About This Home
A ridge-top location just minutes from town provides unbelievable panoramic ocean and mountain views for this 5BR / 5BA Spanish estate compound. With over 5300 SF of combined living space, the large main residence, Guest House, Artist’s Studio, and 2-bed Guest Apartment are set on over 6 acres of natural beauty, including a private well and hiking trail to a year-round creek with rope swing and picnic area.
The home welcomes you in with expansive westward views straight through the living area out over the glass-railed balcony. The kitchen feels as if it is cantilevered out over the hillside and has floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors to the patio to capture both the sunrise and sunset ocean views. The commercial grade custom kitchen is a chef ’s delight with large granite counters topping stainless steel cabinets, which feature full-extension gliding drawer hardware and coordinate well with the Wolf 6-burner range and Miele dishwasher.
The master suite features cathedral ceilings and its own expansive private patio, a perfect place for sunbathing while enjoying the panoramic views–including a seasonal waterfall. The master bathroom includes a claw-foot tub, a marble walk-in shower and an antique Tibetan mirror.
The home sits on over 6 acres of land, a hiker’s paradise, landscaped to preserve its natural beauty and keep it low maintenance and drought tolerant. The home was completed in 1992, built by a local craftsman as his private residence, so construction is first-class, including a slab foundation, extra thick sheared walls throughout, and finished with a “forever roof,” with double layers of tar paper, asphalt and classic Spanish tiles that are cemented, wired and nailed on for long term durability.
With four additional living spaces, this estate is a unique opportunity for those buyers wanting a family compound or additional rental income. The Nanny’s Quarters, 2-bedroom Guest Apartment, Artist’s Studio and Guest House all offer their own private kitchens and baths, and have been thoughtfully designed to offer their own exclusive outdoor areas and capture unobstructed views.
The location feels rural and serene, but still provides quick and easy access to Santa Barbara. The freeway is less than 4 miles away and the shopping and dining on State street just over 5 miles away. This location is also in the award winning Mountain View Elementary district.
This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own the kind of estate compound that could become part of your family’s legacy for generations!
