    Description

    A knoll-top location just minutes from downtown Santa Barbara provides unbelievable 360-degree ocean and mountain views for this 9 Bed | 7 Bath Mediterranean estate compound. Nearly 6000 SF of combined living space, the large main residence, guest house, artist studio, and 2-bed guest apartment are set on over 6 acres of natural beauty, including a private well. For use as a family (or friends) compound, or for additional income possibilities, the main residence can also close off as 3 separate living spaces, allowing for the estate to be enjoyed as 6 ''units''. Each living space enjoys its own beautifully renovated kitchen and bath(s), private entrance, outdoor living space, and incredible views.Through a serene entry courtyard, the main residence is composed of 6-bedrooms | 4-bathrooms and welcomes you in with expansive westward views straight through the living area out over the glass-railed balcony. The 12 ft pocketing wall of glass doors fully recess into the wall for ideal indoor/outdoor living and entertainment. A stately fireplace is central to the main great room, while the surrounding large walls of glass and vaulted wood-beamed cathedral ceilings ensure that the room is bright, and no view is blocked. The large, open kitchen was designed to feel 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. This gourmet kitchen was recently renovated and is sure to please any chef and accommodate large-scale hosting and entertaining. It features an 8-burner Viking professional range with double oven and hood, Viking professional fridge, and an expansive island with breakfast bar seating, extra prep sink, and 2 Bosch dishwashers. The master suite features cathedral ceilings and its own expansive private patio, a perfect place for sunbathing while enjoying the panoramic ocean and mountain views--including a seasonal waterfall. The luxurious master has been designed and remodeled to enjoy sunrises over the ocean from the large walk-in shower and soaking tub. Past the large walk-in closet is a short set of stairs to a "meditation balcony," a perfect location to center yourself for the day and enjoy the ocean view in quiet solitude. The main residence's entry level guest bedroom enjoys a cathedral ceiling, and its own ocean view patio. The accompanying bathroom has been recently remodeled to include a tumbled stone shower & tub, as well as skylights, accentuating the natural feel. The lower level of the main residence is made up of an incredible entertainment/family room with unobstructed views, a recently remodeled full kitchen, two bedrooms and one bathroom. The remainder of the main residence is a 2-bedroom | 1-bathroom nanny's quarters or in-law apartment. It is easily accessible either from the interior of the residence, or, for additional privacy, it can be locked off and accessed through one of two private entrances. Even while enjoying the nanny's quarters as part of the main residence, there are still 3 further additional living spaces, complete with private entrances and full kitchens, perfect for hosting family or guests, or offers possible creative income opportunities. These spaces include a 1-bedroom "artist studio", a 1-bedroom attached "guest house" with bedroom loft and office space, and a 2-bedroom guest apartment on the lowest level of the property, sitting just below the main residence. Two additional driveways provide ample parking for guests for these three units. Each of the units have been thoughtfully designed to capture unobstructed views, provide private outdoor space to be enjoyed, and provide access to communal outdoor areas, like the hot tub and sandstone "fire-pit bench", perfect for late night conversations and connection. The fabulous estate was originally built in 1991, built by a local craftsman as his private residence, so construction is first-class, including a substantial 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. During the last few years the estate has undergone an extensive renovation transforming it into the masterpiece it is today. The residence and additional living spaces sits on over 6 acres of land--a hiker's paradise"and is landscaped to preserve its natural beauty and keep it low maintenance and drought tolerant. The property's water consumption is easily handled by a private well that is 660 feet deep--filtered and stored in four, 1000-gallon tanks. A rural driveway meandering down through the lower portion of the property doubles as a hiking path and leads to the seasonal creek at the bottom of the property, where you can enjoy your own private picnic area, complete with a seasonal swimming hole and rope swing. The idyllic location feels rural and serene, but still provides quick and easy access to downtown Santa Barbara. The freeway is less than 4 miles away and shopping and dining on State Street is just over 5 miles away. Many of Santa Barbara and Goleta's most popular amenities can be accessed in less than 15 minutes, and world-famous wineries, restaurants and Lake Cachuma are just a short drive over Route 154. This location is also in the award-winning Mountain View Elementary school district. This truly is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own the kind of estate compound that could become part of your family's legacy for generations!
