Riskin Partners Estate Group presents
Padaro Lane is home to some of California’s most coveted oceanfront properties and perhaps none capture the sophisticated yet easy coastal spirit for which Montecito is known better than 3165 Padaro. Originally designed by Robert Earl and more recently, reimagined by Andy Neumann and Paul Franz, this private, 1.95-acre property with 173’ of bluff front has direct legal beach access, hosts an incredible residence of unsurpassed quality, and celebrates the best of seaside living.
3165 Padaro’s relationship with the beach is unrivaled and allows residents to enjoy the best of both worlds: the extreme privacy and security that comes from being set above the sand yet with gentle, private beach access through a secured, monitored gate. This rare and coveted combination of privacy and easy accessibility is further enhanced by the property’s position on the cove. Depending on the tides, one can either make their way down to the Miramar for dinner at Caruso’s or enjoy a private beach experience in your immediate backyard.
Once through the gates, a meandering drive passes lush lawns and beautiful reflecting ponds while escorting you through an alle of magnolia trees to land in a bluestone, cobbled motor court. The approach, both dramatic yet quiet and understated, perfectly embodies the essence of the property.
Step inside the two-story entry to experience the home’s incredible architecture. Both a study in balance and proportion, the spaces unfold with grace and ease. A dramatic, curved staircase brings fluidity to the home and is a nice nod to the aqueous nature of the surrounding environment.
Beautiful, well proportioned public spaces look to the sea and are fabulous for entertaining of all sorts. The living room flexes both formally or frivolously depending on the occasion. A beautiful gas fireplace anchors the room which easily accommodates a large crowd but just as easily could foster an afternoon catnap on one of the window seats. Ample wall space is ideal for showcasing serious art from your collection.
The dining room, with gorgeous Murano glass fixtures, is also at home hosting guests but is equally comfortable for a special night for two. Naturally, the ocean views have a standing reservation for every meal, though from this vantage point, you will always have the best seat in the house.
The recently remodeled kitchen is a chef’s dream and marries the best of form and function. The butler’s pantry connects easily to the dining room for easy entertaining. Gorgeous marble slab countertops pair with beamed ceilings, softly painted millwork, and a series of professional appliances to create a dreamy visual palette that supports your culinary palate dreams.
Opening both to the family room, breakfast nook, and seaside patio, the kitchen, and these important spaces are seamlessly integrated.
The nearly two-acre grounds are filled with beautiful spaces that celebrate Santa Barbara’s idyllic indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Mature gardens, ancient specimen trees, and beautiful mountain views anchor the property and give a sense of balance to the rhythms of the sea. From impromptu games of croquet on the lush grounds to morning coffee watching the dolphins, afternoons listening to the waves, meditations around the reflecting ponds, or twilights spent with loved ones by the firepit, the grounds unfold with grace and ease throughout the day.
The spacious, ocean view primary bedroom is a sublime way to begin and end your days. Enjoy cool mornings on the private veranda and warm evenings relaxing in front of the fireplace before bed. Hidden electric screens allow you to fall asleep to the sound of the waves. Dual ocean view baths feature incredible tiles and finishes and dual wardrobes ensure ample space for all.
The residence offers dual offices - one on the main level with handsome mahogany paneling and extensive built-ins, and a second upstairs off of the primary suite with a softer palette. Both feature gas fireplaces and offer a beautiful respite within the home for private concentration.
In addition to the primary suite, the home features five, spacious en suite bedrooms. Two of the upstairs suites face the sea while the third upstairs suite has a private sitting/game room with hidden trundle beds, media, a loft, and extensive built-ins. The two main-level bedrooms are equally comfortable and offer beautiful garden views of the property.
On the north side of the property, a lovely guest house with a vaulted ceiling and a loft is ideal for long-term visitors or staff. Well-appointed and full of light, this beautiful space was done with the same level of exacting quality as the main residence.
A lovely three-car garage is currently outfitted as an incredible fitness studio. Carriage doors swing out to make your workouts an al fresco experience and a session in the infrared sauna is perfect before a dip in the ocean. Ample built-in storage throughout the garage beautifully houses extra bits and bobs collected along the way.
While the fixtures and finishes speak for themselves, many aspects of the home go quietly unnoticed yet contribute greatly to the quality of life enjoyed at 3165 Padaro. Examples of recent permitted updates include a new roof, new windows throughout the property with new mahogany shutters and window boxes, new mahogany doors, new mahogany front gates, connection to public sewer, upgraded heating and AC, generator and Tesla batteries, upgraded electric power plant for the property, extensive landscaped gardens and new hardscape, and extensive security system and smart home Lutron/Crestron systems.
