Picturesque as a historic Villa in an Italian hill town, sits this gorgeous, European inspired estate rests on just over 2 acres. Built in 2012 and designed by acclaimed and revered architect Peter Becker with interior design by Christina Rottman, this home is located within the enclave of Hope Ranch in Santa Barbara, California. The estate commands an extremely private setting among beautiful specimen trees with ocean, island, mountain and canyon views. Magnificent indoor spaces open onto loggias and arbors, patios and gardens that suggest intimate gatherings and sparkling soirees. Impressive attention to detail is everywhere you look in this magnificent residence while uniquely embracing California's beautiful vistas. This home is a perfect balance of elegance and comfortable sophistication, just like Santa Barbara. Designed with thoughtful intention and impeccable finishes, this five bedroom home has a very versatile floor plan that provides options for every lifestyle. Enter the grounds through beautiful custom iron gates and inviting motor court where you will be beckoned to experience the estate. Upon arrival through a custom Riviera Bronze front door, the foyer leads you to the savvy living rooms with magnificent coastal views, a stylish custom Pewter bar, imported Italian fireplace and mantle, with steel doors capturing breathtaking mountain views to the North and bi-folding glass doors to the West capturing sweeping coastal and sunset views.
The formal dining room with fireplace is adjacent to the living room and a charming custom glass conservatory offers another flexible entertaining space within the public rooms.
The custom Bulthaup kitchen adds a stylish and contemporary feel and is a chef's dream. An 8 burner Viking stove, 2 built in Miele ovens, warming drawer, built in espresso machine, 2 kitchen sinks and a walk-in pantry allows flexibility to cook for one or entertain dozens. The kitchen features one of the eight fireplaces with cozy, intimate seating. There is also countertop seating and a generous casual dining area flanked by walls of South facing glass and steel French Doors with fantastic ocean and island views. Outside those doors is another exterior vine covered veranda with multiple seating options and built in overhead heaters. A comfortable den, powder room and lodge like vestibule with Swedish fireplace complete this wing of the home.
Also on the entrance level is an interior courtyard with additional fireplace and seating area, a media room with drop down screen and built in audio, two additional powder rooms, a compact home office, and 4 car garage. Follow the staircase down to a foyer with 2 tall Viking wine refrigerators, display shelving, and entrance to the 1600 bottle climatized wine cellar.
The Master suite sits privately and prominently along the entire West wing of the home. Views from three exposures, the master sitting area affords majestic mountain views framed by a Juliette balcony with a set of three French doors. An entrance hallway is bathed in bright sunshine through a soaring skylight the length of the hall. Glass walls separate the walk-in closet with storage island and Robern European closet system to the left and thoughtful master bath to the right. The Master bath features dual water closets with Toto toilets, duel Waterworks sinks, hardware and soaking tub and custom cabinets throughout. Another French door with Juliette balcony assures you will never miss an opportunity to be inspired by the coastal view.
The bedroom chamber has a lovely fireplace and takes full advantage of the corner location with a generous private balcony with disappearing glass pocket doors to the West and more Juliette/French doors with mesmerizing Channel Island views to the South.
Three more bedroom suites are along the North wing of the home. All feel very private, feature walk in closets, luxurious en-suite bathrooms and have glorious mountain views. At the end of the bedroom wing hallway is access to the covered exterior staircase discretely disguised within the architectural turret and entrance to a marvelous guest accommodation. Thoughtfully designed for convenient access from the home's bedroom wing or via the exterior staircase allowing guests privacy and independence. Immediately upon entry, your eye is drawn to the grand island view and sparkling Pacific ocean. Once you catch your breath you will feel like you have checked into your favorite hotel suite. Charming South facing patio allows for indoor/outdoor use of the space. For those mornings with coastal fog, your guests can cozy up by the Swedish fireplace and brew their own cup of coffee in their hospitality cupboard.
Like a compass, the estate embraces the views in all directions. Exquisitely landscaped by Eric Nagelman, the 2 acre fully hedged and gated property fully embraces the unique location and 300 degree views. The large infinity edge pool spills over to the West and perfectly captures the coastline views all the way to Campus point. Adjacent to the pool, you will find a gas fire pit to enjoy the lower portion of the property in a quiet secluded location. To the North, and enjoying the incredible mountain views you can play a game of boules, otherwise known as pétanque. The fully regulation sized tennis court sits to the East adjacent to the Alitex Greenhouse that was sourced in England. With an orchard that features stone fruit, citrus, and avocados and fountains to set the tone, the estate truly has everything you could dream of.
