Riviera Foothills Contemporary
Behind the impressive stone and wood gate lies a stunning brick, redwood and glass contemporary expertly situated in a magical 1.5-acre setting in the Riviera Foothills. Designed by Cliff Hickman – known for his work influenced by the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright – this split level home features flowing, open spaces, warm redwood ceilings, and walls of glass accented by brick panels and the majestic Santa Ynez mountains in the distance.
Upon entering the home, one notices that the space is designed so that the ceilings gradually decrease in height as the space flows from the grand, open living area, into the dining area, and then into the more intimate kitchen area. The eastward facing living room features floor-to-ceiling glass with glass doors opening to a large, brick terrace overlooking the velvet lawns. Towering palms, lush, native landscaping and distant mountain peaks complete the awe-inspiring view.
The dining area is a more intimate space featuring floor-to-ceiling glass with glass doors opening to a stone patio overlooking the pool, rose garden and native oaks. The warm and inviting chef’s kitchen is located adjacent to the dining area, boasting top-of-the-line appliances, custom cabinetry, granite counters, a large pantry and lots of natural light.
Located away from the main living areas, the sumptuous master suite is a retreat unto itself. The space features glass doors opening to a private patio shaded by a canopy of oaks. The en suite master bath boasts a large, walk-in closet, separate vanity area, a soaking tub with a corner window overlooking the oaks and rose garden, and convenient access to the heated pool and spa.
Completing the forward-thinking design is an upper level loft/office area leading to a private, second bedroom with an en suite bath and balcony overlooking the pool area; a cheery family room (or third bedroom) with a fireplace, full bath, and access to the rear patio; a large laundry room with ample storage; a mud room with additional storage; south-facing solar panels for pool and domestic hot water; a detached 3-car garage; and a charming one bedroom/one bath guesthouse with private entrance.
This special property is conveniently located across from beautiful Parma Park, and close to the El Cielito Estates tennis courts and the Sheffield Open Space. Roosevelt Elementary attendance area.
