Hidden behind vine covered gates and approached by a curving drive, this meticulously remodeled, casually elegant Mediterranean residence is situated perfectly on a premier Hope Ranch ridge-top, taking full advantage of the views in all directions. Stunning ocean, island and sunset views to the south and expansive mountain and valley views to the north are a combination rarely found in Santa Barbara. This single level home blends beautifully with its very serene and private setting and is certain to meet the needs of the buyer seeking views, the ultimate in quality and detail, a versatile floor plan and a most sought after location in Hope Ranch.
The welcoming front entry opens to a home surrounded by stunning beauty and a feeling of ultimate privacy and tranquility. Rich wood floors, dramatic trussed beamed ceilings, three custom fireplaces, French doors and walls of glass enhance the carefully planned layout of the home and blend the outdoor entertaining areas seamlessly with the interior. The library/office with ocean views features beautifully detailed coffered ceiling, built in cabinets and bookcases. Quality and craftsmanship are evident throughout the home. The master bedroom, with stylish fireplace and sumptuous bath, looks out over lush lawns and lovely gardens to the Santa Ynez mountains. French doors open to the inviting view filled patio. Adjacent to the master suite is a second bedroom and private bath, ideal for a nursery, private office or other personal uses. The chef’s kitchen and breakfast area are the heart of the home and flow out to the front patio, ideal for entertaining. A third ensuite bedroom, pantry and laundry room complete the kitchen wing of the home.
Attached to the main residence, but with its own private entrance and covered patio is a fourth bedroom and bath, now being used as an art studio.
Hope Ranch is a treasure in itself. Palm lined drives, miles of meandering equestrian and walking trails and a pristine (privately accessed) Hope Ranch Beach create a peaceful environment for the estates and residences. Close to schools, shopping, fine dining, parks, the harbor, airport, cultural venues, La Cumbre Country Club, golf and downtown Santa Barbara & Goleta, Hope Ranch is the ideal location for a primary residence or secondary retreat.
Santa Barbara offers a wonderful climate year round and is a fantastic place to call home.
