Santa Barbara, California, USA
The 4 bedroom home was built in 2004 and offers over 600 square meters of sophisticated but casual elegance for private beach-side living.
The large master bedroom adjoins a tranquil sitting room with fireplace and 180 degree ocean vistas. The master bath offers a soaking tub and steam shower. There are two guest bedrooms, both with full baths. The home also has a very large guest suite which has its own direct access, but which is connected to the house via the partially enclosed patio. The house has 6 bathrooms.
Guests will enjoy the fabulous chef’s kitchen which offers ocean views and professional appliances. A large Great Room also faces the ocean and has doors that roll back to provide unimpeded views of Santa Barbara and the Channel Islands, access to the large ocean deck. The Library is the perfect place to curl up with a good book in front of its fireplace, while the spacious gym contains a new Precor elliptical machine and free weights for a total aerobic and resistance workout.
Outdoor living spaces include multiple dining and sitting areas, with the south elevation providing dramatic ocean views and the north side overlooking the nearby Santa Ynez Mountains and the famous El Estero Wildlife Refuge. A Wolf BBQ on the ocean deck provides the perfect setting for grilling while enjoying the seemingly infinite ocean and mountain vistas that are uniquely Santa Barbara. The back yard is fully landscaped and features a large, beautifully kept lawn on which to enjoy such activities as a picnic, croquet, lawn bowling, Frisbee, and other physical activities. A paved path leads directly from the lawn to the beach.
Entertainment amenities include a Crestron system with a Pioneer Elite 60” flat screen plasma display, Blu-Ray DVD, and a state-of-the-art surround sound system in the Home Theater; 42” plasma TVs in the Great Room and Master Bedroom; a music system with IPod docking station, CD player and AM/FM throughout the main house and decks; and a latest-generation Wi-Fi network blankets the house and decks with wireless coverage.
The property is protected by Sandyland’s own private gatekeeper 24 hours per day, 7 days a week.
This property is located within a private gated area of 27 oceanfront estates. The sandy beach is approximately one-mile long and its private nature makes it one of California’s most unique settings. The ocean along Sandyland is typically gentle and is home to a seemingly-infinite array of sea creatures, including sea lions, otters and dolphins. The waves typically are 1-3’ in height, which provides the perfect environment for surfing, body boarding, swimming, ocean kayaking, or just frolicking. World-class surfing is less than a 10-minute drive away at the famous Rincon Point and Montecito and Santa Barbara with their museums, galleries, restaurants and shops are just minutes away by car.
