New, Gated, Private Beach-Front, Custom Cottage on one
half acre parcel
Pacific Riviera Living at its best. Enter this custom designed Cape Cod
masterpiece through its oversized, arched-top, solid walnut,
hand-carved, front door after you've been admitted on the grounds by
video-intercom through the roadside electric gate. This delightful home
provides sweeping 360-degree white water coastal, island and mountain
views from every room through generously cased, aluminum-clad, 9-lite
windows and French doors (8) adorned with life-time-finish, heavy,
polished brass hardware.
From the nine foot high ceilings to the luxurious solid Brazilian Black
Walnut hardwood flooring, this richly appointed 3 BR 3-1/2 bath, 3,100+
square foot home perched on a sea bluff overlooking
the Santa Barbara Channel provides its inhabitants a gracious
environment in which to contemplate the abundant natural wildlife
against the quiet murmur of the surf.
Sea lions sun themselves on the rocks and their barks can be heard from
the yard. Pods of dolphin gallop up the coast. Over 25,000 whales
migrate between Alaska and Mexico annually; imagine whale watching from
your living room. Formations of Brown Pelicans gracefully skim the bluff
top soaring on the updrafts
Entertain clients, friends and family on the 3 spacious patios adorned
with yards of seat-walls, BBQ, 14' gazebo, and shade house. Or ascend
the dramatic sweeping staircase to enjoy a larger than life movie on the
5' X 9' screen in the air conditioned home-theater loft complete with
thundering surround-sound, wet bar, refrigerator and dumbwaiter, or
luxuriate on a chaise on the balcony with its stunning panoramic Pacific
vistas. There's even a telescope for viewing boats, islands, wildlife,
and the rich blanket of stars and planets in the night sky.
The dining room features its own patio accessible through 9-lite French
doors as does the family room. The oversized masonry fireplace with its
striking marble surround and 14 foot long raised hearth and gas log is
flanked by warm, custom made, Cherry hardwood cabinets and mantle.
Generous crown molding and baseboards complement the decor.
Yards of dramatic granite counter tops spread over rich Cherry hardwood
designer kitchen cabinets that set off the stainless steel, top of the
line Viking, chef's dream kitchen and walk-in pantry.
Enter the master suite, with its breathtaking ocean views, through the
adjoining library's custom, arched, reeded-glass French doors. The
master suite with its elegant crown molding and distinctive 12' coffered
ceilings and abundant Cherry hardwood bookshelves provide a pleasant
retreat complete with built-in entertainment center and refrigerator.
The master bathroom with its twin showers, Japanese jetted soaking tub,
European wall-hung bidet and toilet, is graciously enclosed in
electrically heated Italian travertine, and large solar-tubes over each
distinctive basin (and in the generous walk-in closet) provide natural
daylight indoors. Through the Library's other French doors, descend
outdoors to the romantic, secluded, private patio with hushed trickling
On warm summer days, take the stairs (behind locked gate) to the private
sandy beach, and enjoy a refreshing splash in the surf. At night, enjoy
a splash and massage in the generous hot-tub off the master patio.
Central vacuum makes cleaning a breeze, and the laundry includes top of
the line Maytag washer and dryer and built-in ironing board. Dual
tankless water heaters never run cold. Satellite music is available
indoors an out. The attached 2-car garage and interior driveway provide
parking for 8 vehicles.
If you're looking for a home with a comfortable coastal climate, far
from the noise of highway 101, with spectacular ever-changing vistas,
abundant wildlife and a private beach, you've found it.
