The charming and eclectic nature of this classic Spanish-style estate, Casa Señorial ("Stately Home"), is a result of its long history, humble beginnings and precise rejuvenation. Originally built in the 1950’s as two adobe structures, the property's main residence and detached casita, on approximately one acre, have maintained Old World charm while being tastefully and meticulously updated with modern conveniences. Historical elements are found throughout the home and across the property. For example, the wooden beams in the living room were originally part of an old bridge, and the impressive stone fireplace was rescued from the now-demolished Dabney Estate. A majestic towering redwood tree, nicknamed “Big Ben”, is one of the few still thriving in the area. Without question, this special home is incomparable and unique.

A Memorable Welcome

Up the steps to the main residence, large multi-pane doors greet you as you're immediately immersed in the detail and warmth that is sustained throughout the home. The grand living room has vaulted ceilings, antique windows from England, a Portuguese fireplace mantle and a wonderful terrace overlooking the grounds.

The Heart of the Casa

The kitchen features imported Italian tile, custom walnut cabinetry, Porcelain slate floors, a versatile granite island, top-of-the-line appliances and a cozy fireplace. The master suite is a serene retreat with cork flooring, stunning views, a luxurious bathroom, a den and a private balcony. The downstairs is complete with a spacious guest sanctuary, wine cellar with original adobe walls, cement epoxy floors and a bathroom.

A Hideaway Fit for the Most Discerning Family and Guests

A lovely pergola leads you from the main residence to the detached casita: a tranquil hideaway with vaulted beam ceilings, a sandstone fireplace, built-in-shelving and a cozy loft.  A wall of multi-pane windows and doors overlook the impressive natural landscaping.

The setting of the property is unmatched; with abundant trees and plants; winding walking paths; views of the ocean, city and foothills; and multiple venues for relaxation, including an intimate sitting area surrounded by hedges. This exceptional property, nestled in the foothills and with its colorful history, has evolved into a perfect retreat with the convenience and versatility of a modern lifestyle.
