The extremely well designed floorplan provides flexibility over time, including master bedroom suites on both the ground level and second floor, each providing special luxuries: the ground floor master has a lovely fireplace and easy access to the patio and pool, while the upstairs offers a private ocean view balcony with romantic fireplace. In addition to a master bedroom suite, the main level includes a fantastic Great Room with fireplace and sensational open kitchen with a vast quartzite island and butler’s pantry, formal dining room with sleek see through fireplace, den / library with fireplace and handsome bar, office and two en suite bedrooms.

The thoughtful design inside continues outside, as virtually every room in the home opens to a patio, balcony or other outdoor space. The gorgeous rectangular pool features a "shore" with an umbrella slot for those who wish to lounge within a shaded shallow pool while enjoying the company of those on the expansive flagstone terrace. The nicely appointed outdoor kitchen with built-in BBQ is sure to be a focal point of fun outside parties, while the pretty covered patio with fireplace offers the perfect spot for more intimate conversation.
Every aspect of this beautifully landscaped 1.12 acre property has been carefully planned and exceptionally well executed, while the home exudes comfort, style and quality... truly, Santa Barbara living at its best.
