Built in the 1950’s and extensively remodeled in 2001, this lovely contemporary country home is infused with modern amenities. High ceilings, paned windows, French doors, and hardwood floors throughout combine a refined rustic elegance with the clean lines of the original mid-century design. A charming Dutch door welcomes you into the living room, which features a pitched beamed ceiling, gas fireplace with raised hearth, and mountain and garden view windows.
Central to the public rooms is an extraordinary spiral staircase with wooden railing and open landing. The spacious upper floor master bedroom offers a huge bay window seat with ocean and island views, large his & hers walk-in closets, ensuite bath with skylight, tiled shower, and soaking tub, and access to the deck and gardens below. Three light-filled entry-level bedrooms share a remodeled bath, and have access to the sundeck and grounds. The formal dining room and adjacent family room, both with walls of windows and French doors, share a unique open wall design, which celebrates the light and views the dramatic clearstory windows provide.
The remodeled French country kitchen, complete with Viking appliances, marble counters, a large island, and custom cabinetry including an amazing built-in breakfast bar, opens to a barbeque terrace. A huge wrap around ocean and island view deck is the “largest room in the house”. Multiple entertaining and relaxing areas, including a curtained pergola for shaded al fresco dining, invite you to enjoy Santa Barbara’s indoor/outdoor lifestyle, with beautiful, panoramic coastal views over the treetops. Steps down, a romantic meandering pathway takes you past natural stone boulders into a hidden oak canopied garden with seasonal creek. Low rock walls support the expansive terraced lawn area of this idyllic private acre.
Mature trees, landscaped hedges, and flowerbeds provide a border along Hidden Valley Lane, creating a backyard that feels like it extends into the canyon beyond. With 2534± square feet of living space and a two-car garage, this four bedroom, two bath, comfortably luxurious home, while nestled in a rural mountain neighborhood, is just a half-mile from East Valley Road, minutes from Montecito’s Upper Village shops and restaurants.
