Iconic mid-century modern with sweeping ocean and city views! This beautiful and dramatic mid-century modern home was designed in 1962 specifically to showcase the Santa Barbara coastline. The living area, kitchen, dining room, primary bedroom suite, and home office each showcase a different view, creating a dynamic display of city lights and glistening shoreline. The main living and entertaining area has impressive floor-to-ceiling windows to capture these breathtaking views. The home flows gracefully from living to dining to kitchen with plenty of natural light and provides single level living on the main floor. A spacious executive office adjacent to the living area also has sweeping views and has access to two separate patios.
One patio leads out front to a lovely entertaining or open-air meeting area (and includes a hot tub cleverly designed to provide privacy). This home office could also be used as a family room, study, or transformed into a third bedroom by adding doors. A roomy kitchen showcases clean lines, tile floors, granite counter tops, and both cityscape and ocean views. It is designed to capture plenty of storage and includes room for a breakfast table, plus there's room to add a prep sink or wet bar. Watch the sunrise from the primary bedroom, or close the motorized shade for complete privacy. The ensuite bath has a curbless shower and travertine tile floors. A second bedroom has a French door to the backyard, and there's a full-size guest bath off the hall. Laundry is conveniently located in the hall near the bedrooms. The backyard features a custom gazebo for gathering or lounging and a lawn area roomy enough for outdoor games. The terraced hillside has plenty of sun to create a veggie garden. There's also a 110v electric lift in the backyard of this single-level home so that the front entry stairs can be avoided if preferred. Elegant touches abound throughout this thoughtfully-designed property, from the landscaping vignettes, to the artful glass tile at the entry, the custom stonework in the garage, modern railings and fences, and even the concrete work with classic mid-century style. The dought-tolerant landscaping complements the mid-century architecture perfectly. Recent upgrades include the engineered retaining walls, new 200 amp electrical panel with auxiliary conduit, wifi-controlled thermostat and exterior LED lighting, new sewer, and new gas and water lines to the house. There's also a pull-through driveway with motorized gate and a city-approved extra parking place that add value and convenience. This prized location on Santa Barbara's famed Riviera is near the beach, downtown, parks, and shopping.
