Description:

This magnificent Cape Cod-style oceanfront estate features a wondrous home and comfortable, private guest house on nearly 1.5 acres in the prestigious gated Sand Point beach colony near Montecito, CA. Facing over 120 ft. of beach frontage, the main residence offers 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths plus 2 half-baths. The charming guest house provides a bedroom, bathroom, living room and kitchen. An elevator in the main residence serves a lower level providing over 3,000 sq. ft. of usable space. The expansive wraparound deck and on-deck spa overlook the ocean and pristine beach, while a refreshing lap pool offers views of the revered Carpinteria Salt Marsh Reserve, and beyond to the mountains. Overall, this spectacular estate is a masterpiece of design & craftsmanship. Dark and richly-stained wood floors contrast with clean, fresh white walls and woodwork that serve to showcase nature’s palette of sand and ocean resting just beyond expanses of multi-pane windows. Ocean panoramas grace most rooms of the home, including the living room with its dramatic floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and cathedral ceiling, and its sitting room hosting walls of windows. The home’s culinary center is a gourmet chef’s delight and wonderful venue for enjoying family and friends. The kitchen’s clean, white cabinetry, walls and paneled cove ceiling with recessed lighting are complemented by black marble counters and backsplash. A significant center island hosts a top-of-the-line stainless range and oven as well as prep and eating areas. The large, marble farm sink and surrounding counters rest in an alcove lined with multi-pane windows looking out to the ocean. The adjoining dining room features a cathedral ceiling and a wall of windows. Luxury, sophistication, comfort and relaxation define the master suite. Facing the beach and ocean – showcased through a parade of multi-pane windows – and warmed by a tasteful fireplace with stone surround and hearth, the bedroom provides a truly restful retreat. Its bath, en suite, hosts stunning marble walls and counters, a travertine floor, and oversize and glassed-in shower with large rain head. The spacious dressing area is an elegant yet comfortable room unto itself. The list of amenities, tasteful accouterments, and convenient recreational, social and cultural options goes on and on. Suffice it to say that this magnificent Cape Cod-style oceanfront estate is nothing short of magical.
