In the Park Highlands area of the Santa Barbara foothills near family-friendly San Antonio Creek Trail and Park, and in the highly desirable Mountain View School attendance area, this single-level Spanish home was designed by noted Montecito architect Bob Easton and built in 2015 utilizing some of the finest materials. The light-filled and airy interior perfectly complements the expansive exterior living areas of the home, which feature views of the ocean and nearby mountains.
As one enters the residence, one is sure to take note of the stunning Italian ceramic tile floors and distinct Spanish arched doorways, which are found throughout much of the home. An impressive great room with vaulted beam ceilings incorporates a large living room with stone hearth, and a formal dining room with doors leading to a lovely courtyard and fountain. Adjacent to the great room is a media room or office with a gorgeous coffered ceiling and outdoor access.
The kitchen -- also with vaulted beam ceilings -- hosts top-of-line appliances and dark-stained cabinets, as well as a huge island with seating, which looks out to the adjacent family room and its cozy fireplace. Just outside is a relaxing veranda with a fireplace and plenty of room for both a seating area and al fresco dining; the perfect place to capture the quintessential sunsets of Santa Barbara.
The spacious master suite features a luxurious bathroom with a walk-in shower, windows looking out at the Santa Ynez Mountains and French doors opening to a bougainvillea-lined patio. The three guest suites all feature bathrooms en-suite and two share an ocean-view patio.
This property is certainly fit for entertaining considering its nearly one acre hosts a bocce court, built-in firepit and grand terraces; all surrounded by vibrant drought-tolerant landscaping. An oversized 3-car garage offers ample storage and is discretely located at the back of the property.
