Serene and stunning, this exotic estate offers wrap-around views in Hope Ranch, Santa Barbara’s coveted private beach community.
The house has the grandeur of a manor house on an Indonesian coffee plantation. Wide airy verandas look out to the mountains and toward the sea to the south and east. Highest quality new construction, elegant design and clean contemporary lines with Indo-Asian interior accents make it an exceptional property.
On 1.85 unusually private and quiet acres, there are cool breezes on the verandas, warm sunshine in the courtyard and over the sparkling 20 x 60 foot pool. Its location in Hope Ranch means there is no highway or train between this estate and the beach. In addition, the hillside setting on Via Esperanza enjoys many more sunny days than other Hope Ranch properties.
The distinguished architecture features 10.5 to 15 foot ceilings throughout, masonry construction, plaster interior and stone and stucco exterior walls. All rooms have 10 foot exterior pocket doors that slide open to the covered loggias and patios. There are 7 masonry fireplaces and wood or stone floors throughout. Clever and generous use of custom-built mahogany, special antique accents, and imported detailing from Indonesia, add to the exciting, exotic flavor of the home’s spacious interiors.
All of the bedrooms, main living areas and verandas are on one level. The efficient design includes two of every critical appliance (washers / dryers, ovens, dishwashers), LED lighting and a Crestron system that provides easy management of lights, music, pool / spa, TV and security. The rarely-needed heating and air systems feature the most advanced filtration systems.
This magnificent home is just 10 minutes from downtown Santa Barbara, and even closer to shopping on upper State Street and at La Cumbre Plaza.
