Breathtaking Views Abound

Welcome to a hidden treasure set 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 dramatic front entry opens to a home surrounded by beauty, privacy and tranquility. Rich wood floors, trussed beamed ceilings, three custom fireplaces, French doors and walls of glass enhance the carefully designed estate and blend the outdoor entertaining areas seamlessly with the interior.  The living room takes full advantage of the ocean views and mountain vistas, while the chef’s kitchen and sunny breakfast room (with fireplace) are the heart of the home, with an easy flow to the various patios. The library/office with ocean views features beautifully detailed coffered ceiling, built in cabinets and bookcases. 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, with its own garden patio with ocean views. A third ensuite bedroom is in a separate wing beyond the kitchen. Attached to the main residence, but with its own private entrance and covered patio is a fourth bedroom and bath.

This single level estate blends beautifully with its serene and private setting. The quality craftsmanship and attention to detail is evident throughout the property, from the beautiful accents and amenities within the residence to the landscaped gardens surrounding the home. The pavered driveway is an extension of the patio, allowing guests to roam, from the sheltered front porch to the wrap-around lawns, through the pathways amongst the roses and fruit trees to the shaded oaks with sitting areas.

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.
