The Riviera’s estate district is a highly sought after environment offering a perfect combination of “Montecito-like” semi-rural tranquility along with renowned Riviera views. This coveted neighborhood is known for its estate properties with mature trees, beautifully landscaped grounds and spacious homes with peaceful vistas of the Sana Ynez mountain range along with inspiring ocean, coastline and Channel Island views.
Tucked away down a private gated drive in the heart of this neighborhood is a romantic Tuscan Villa surrounded by perfectly manicured estate-like grounds that provide the ambiance of living in your own private resort. The allure of this special home is evident throughout with a European sense of flare and artistry, including high beamed ceilings, intricate wrought iron, custom light fixtures, art niches and several view terraces.
The public spaces are highlighted by a welcoming foyer and a gourmet kitchen with access to casual and formal dining areas each opening out to an inviting patio through French doors. Up a short flight of steps is the master wing of the home offering a comfortable sitting/media room with a fireplace, a romantic master suite and a private office all with a seamless flow to irresistible ocean view terraces.
The guest wing features two spacious bedrooms with French doors to private patios along with a beautifully appointed full bath, a media room and an exercise room or fourth bedroom. Additionally, the home offers an art studio/office, a powder room, an oversized 2-car garage and a spectacular wine cave complete with wine-making equipment.
The estate grounds are just as enticing as the interior spaces beginning with a sweeping gated drive that leads to a motor court providing plenty of guest parking for entertaining. The lushly landscaped acre is a private oasis featuring sprawling lawns, an inviting resort-style pool and various patios and sitting areas to enjoy the Mediterranean climate.
Bountiful fruit trees, grape vines, meandering paths, hand-cut stone walls and massive sandstone boulders further enhance the magical setting. This spectacular Tuscan Villa in one of Santa Barbara’s most coveted locations is the home you may never want to leave.
