Just Sold! ~ El Cielito Contemporary Estate

Nestled down a private, oak-studded drive in the Riviera’s country estates district is an exceptional contemporary that exudes warmth and functionality with a touch of Indonesian flair.

The thoughtfully-designed residence offers the comfort and ease of an open floor plan with all major rooms on one level, allowing each space to harmoniously connect to the next. The centerpiece of this distinctive home is the formal entrance and gathering area, which features a dramatic 24-foot ceiling with exposed beams and ample skylights. This space opens through French doors onto an expansive entertaining patio, creating an effortless indoor/outdoor lifestyle.

To the east of the entry is a well-appointed kitchen and breakfast room. The soothing tones of travertine are complimented by birch cabinets, a wood beam ceiling, and quarter-sewn white oak flooring. The space includes a convenient center island, two walk-in pantries and access through French doors to a built-in Viking BBQ.

Tucked behind an antique Balinese door next to the kitchen is a bedroom/office with a private entrance. This area of the home is completed by a remodeled full bath, laundry room and access to the oversized, finished garage.

The west side of the home opens to a formal living area. Offering a comfortable design with a vaulted, wood beam ceiling, the space is completed by an impressive stone fireplace and built-in shelving.

The spacious master bedroom anchors the home and is a private sanctuary in itself, boasting 13-foot ceilings, a cozy fireplace, and French doors that lead to the gardens beyond. The master is completed by a well-designed walk-in closet and a luxurious en suite bath with soaking tub, dual-head glass shower, and double sinks set in an antique vanity.

The second-story of the residence features two additional bedroom suites, each offering cathedral ceilings and beautifully designed bathrooms. The space is completed by an upstairs sitting area.

The Riviera’s El Cielito neighborhood is surrounded almost entirely by parks, making the area an ideal location for those looking to be in close proximity to both Montecito and Santa Barbara, yet tucked away in a private and natural setting.
