Lavish and Tantalizing Mediterranean Estate
A majestic residence, inspired by the Italian countryside, Tuscany Oaks Farm combines magnificent vision with seductive beauty in an irresistible coastal setting. Perched above the sea on a wide bluff of nearly 20 acres, this serene equestrian estate embraces pastoral privacy and panoramic views. Designed by Don Nulty, AIA, this impeccable property is superbly constructed with materials hand-selected, custom-made and personally imported from France, Italy and elsewhere in Europe.
Through double gates, up a private drive flanked by stately trees and manicured grounds, a grand motor court sets a tone of gracious elegance, and the entrance galleria has soaring arches that welcome guests with classic proportions and tranquil warmth. Within, this five ensuite-bedroom residence combines strength and spaciousness with gem-like beauty. Every material, fitting and detail was chosen and placed to accommodate the most cordial - and comfortable - lifestyle.
Built on a scale to offer both intimacy and expansive entertaining, life at Tuscany Oaks takes in sublime views stretching from the Santa Ynez Mountains to the Channel Islands, and from Santa Barbara to Port Hueneme. This is an estate that celebrates the equestrian life, whether it takes the form of thoroughbreds, polo ponies, dressage or casual trail riding along the nearby beach and bluffs. The 18-stall barn includes an office, tack room and two-bedroom ranch manager's apartment. There are fenced corrals and acres of laser-leveled pasture for grazing or polo.
With its generous space and idyllic site, this is a property adaptable to the ideals of a sophisticated buyer. The barn could be used for offices, or adapted to a screening room or car storage.
Additional features include a spectacular outdoor entertainment compound with swimming pool, loggia pavilion and an adjacent cabana with a bedroom, bath, exercise room and full kitchen; security cameras throughout the property; top-of-the-line audiophile electronics; and a very private guest house above an additional two-car garage.
This exquisite estate is a jewel on California's most desirable Santa Barbara coast - refined living, dramatic vistas and plenty of space to realize one's most enchanted dreams.
