Santa Barbara Beautiful
Prominently situated on 1.2 flat, bluff-top acres, one finds understated elegance, sophistication and comfort. Single-story living at its most glorious, this magnificent estate was designed by acclaimed architect Andrew Roteman and skillfully constructed by AK “Hud” Huddleston. It is easy to see why this 6,000+ square foot masterpiece won the “Santa Barbara Beautiful” award in 2008 in the large home category.
The gracious foyer opens onto inviting living spaces soaked in sunlight that showcase breathtaking ocean and island panoramas. The soothing yet dynamic color palette found in the coastal waters was drawn upon to create an interior that effortlessly blends with its surroundings. Sea breezes dance throughout the home while a parade of French doors open to meticulously designed and manicured gardens, intimate verandas and endless, unobstructed views of the Pacific – – a seamless blend of indoor-outdoor living.
The formal living room is regal yet comfortable; open yet intimate. Featuring signature views, a soaring open-beamed ceiling, a strikingly beautiful hand-crafted fireplace and tile floors, it is a space to remember. The living room flows effortlessly into the formal dining room, which is centered on three beautifully arched windows that frame the breathtaking ocean and island views.
At the heart of this home is the exquisite kitchen/family room with an expansive open floor plan that incorporates the kitchen, informal dining area and a cozy sitting room with a beautiful fireplace and built-in entertainment center. French doors open onto a most-romantic dining veranda – intimate and yet spacious enough for entertaining – replete with a built-in BBQ, vine covered arbor and outdoor fireplace.
A galleria off of the living room leads you into the large and luxurious master suite. A retreat unto itself, this suite showcases a fireplace, vaulted open-beamed ceilings, two walk-in closets, a private office and a sumptuous master bathroom. Glorious ocean views are enjoyed from every room in the suite, with French doors that open to a private covered terrace overlooking the pool and lush grounds.
Off its own galleria and with a separate exterior entrance sits a conveniently located and comfortable guest suite. This space features a bedroom with a private patio, designer bath, two closets and a comfortable sitting room. Two additional bedrooms with en suite baths and private patios, and a finished, three-car garage, complete this remarkable coastal estate.
