Nestled into Santa Barbara's famed foothills, 1944 Eucalyptus Hill Road sits perched above the city's sprawling downtown and boasts panoramic views of the Pacific. Equal parts dramatic and intimate, this masterpiece is an architectural tour de force, juxtaposing a rough gunite exterior with rich mahogany paneled doors and lintels, rift sawn oak paneling, teak railings, and epay decking.Impeccably designed by Ferguson Ettinger with a reverence for the materials, this traditional Skog House pays homage to the diverse materials' innate qualities, leaving them in their purest, most unrefined form. The home's angular exterior exhibits a sprayed-on gunite finish, intended to weather naturally with the passing seasons rather than be repainted.CONTINUED... From the street, first time visitors and longtime neighbors are awestruck by what lies beyond the façade. Unfolding seamlessly into the hillside's natural typography, bold volumes of space have been expertly designed to highlight the expansive art collection within. Built with the quintessence of construction standards by Allen & Associates, this 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom abode has been lovingly maintained by just two owners in its forty-seven-year existence. Both imbued with a passion for architecture, every restoration has been made in an effort to enhance and honor the original layout.
Sitting on the cusp of Hale Park's open space, the home affords an unparalleled diversity of birds, serenading guests with thrashers at sunrise and circling owls at sunset. Sweeping views of the Channel Islands contrast with a contemplative scene of nuthatches chirping steps away in Diadora cedars. Rich and rough finishes exist harmoniously, striking a balance between the dramatic and intimate nature of the architecture, creating a design unity not commonly seen. A one-of-a-kind home paired and framed by unrivaled views of Santa Barbara; 1944 Eucalyptus Hill Road is an architectural feat not to be missed.
