Property Description

The charm of yesteryear meets the comforts of 21st century living in this thoroughly and impeccably renovated circa 1900 California Craftsman home and its delightful guest cottage. Thanks to years of upgrades guided by masterful construction, design and landscape professionals, this nearly one-half acre mini-estate is worthy of awards and accolades. Many of the original accoutrements in the main residence and cottage have been preserved. Wainscoting, picture railings and beadboard paneling are here, as are wood floors, leaded windows and a brick fireplace. Noticeably new are dual-pane windows, abundant storage, and the kitchen's marble counters, Shaker cabinetry, and high-end appliances with names like Bosch, Liebherr, Bertazzoni and Gaggenau. The bathrooms feature designer enhancements such the master bath's clawfoot tub, large glassed-in shower, and Carrara marble counters and radiant-heated floor. Additional luxury touches include a spacious walk-in closet, formerly an entire bedroom; a sunroom and a whole-house interior-exterior security system.
The grounds are nothing short of magical. Santa Barbara sandstone is present in garden walls, boulders and stepping stones. Walking paths and numerous seating areas, including a lovely pergola perfect for alfresco dining, are complemented by drought-tolerant and flowering foliage. An orchard is home to passion fruit, plum, red and green grapes, blackberries, avocados, fig, Asian pears, blood oranges, mandarins, Valencia oranges, Mexican and American limes, mulberry, strawberries, strawberry guavas, ground cherries, and kumquats.
This enchanting retreat seems far from the madding crowd, yet it is convenient to such iconic Santa Barbara destinations as the Mission, Botanic Garden, and Rocky Nook Park. In fact, all the amenities and activities Santa Barbara offers are mere minutes away; making this property an ideal family home or home away from home.
