Commanding approximately 10 acres on a knoll in the Montecito foothills, this Toro Canyon home hosts panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, Channel Islands, Santa Barbara and Carpinteria coastlines, and Santa Ynez Mountains. The resounding theme, both inside and outside, is of a refreshing, desert-like openness. Entering the magical property's gates and ascending the lengthy driveway, one is struck by the dramatic landscaping: a showcase of cacti, and other succulents and drought-tolerant flora. The home's interior is equally as stunning. Exposed beam and shiplap vaulted ceilings, wood and tile floors, an abundance of windows and glass doors framed in natural wood, and recessed lighting contribute to an ambiance of warmth and spaciousness.
A chef's kitchen featuring high-end stainless appliances and a spacious island, formal and informal dining areas, and an inviting lounging area comprise home's an expansive great room. The living room, with its stone fireplace hearth and surround, provides a relaxed though sophisticated sanctuary, and the bedrooms, including the primary suite and its enchanting kiva fireplace, open to the grounds via oversize glass and wood frame doors.
This serene sanctuary of understated luxury takes full advantage of Santa Barbara's Mediterranean climate, with every living area opening to the serene natural setting. In addition to breathtaking views and the impressive succulent garden, the grounds hosts a variety of productive fruit trees, mature oaks, peaceful walking trails, and multiple venues for entertaining al fresco, including a large dining terrace and pergola.
Defined by unmatched privacy and surreal views yet located moments from Montecito’s upper village, San Ysidro Ranch, numerous beaches, renowned hiking trails and more, this chic and distinctive Toro Canyon home presents an incredible opportunity for Montecito residence.
