A refreshing divergence from Santa Barbara’s Mediterranean-style homes, this homage to the modernist design of renowned architects such as Le Corbusier stands as a striking trophy on the city’s coveted Riviera. Its clean lines and stark white exterior offer dramatic contrast to the surrounding foliage and hillside backdrop. The home’s interior features cool white tile floors, recessed lighting, and walls of glass showcasing stunning panoramic views over Santa Barbara. On full display are the sparkling Pacific Ocean, Channel Islands, and beyond to the horizon. Expansive sliding glass doors open to a wraparound deck, and an impressive domed skylight looks skyward, flooding the space with light during the day, and offering a portal to the stars at night.

A focal point of the modernist design home, its fabulous kitchen, hosts stainless appliances, a versatile center island, a sliding glass door to the deck, and an informal dining area. Nearby, the formal dining room features a wall of glass, sliding open to access the deck, a raised fire pit and, of course, the extraordinary view. The spacious master suite also offers a wall of glass opening to the deck, extensive built-in shelving, and a luxurious bath with a spa soaking tub set against a backdrop picture window overlooking the hillside. Examples of the home’s first-class accoutrements are the laundry room’s state-of-the-art dual Bosch washers and Miele dryer.

This remarkable residence and its 3-car garage are easily accessible from the Riviera’s Alameda Padre Serra (“APS”), and it seems like a mere stone’s throw to all the amenities of Santa Barbara.
