Awash with rustic charm and timeless elegance, this romantic Tuscan villa is one of Mission Canyon’s hidden treasures with its breathtaking ocean views and architectural grandeur reminiscent of an Italian grotto. Unique, magical and supremely inviting, this three bedroom, three-and-a-half bath home was meticulously constructed in 2005 by a local contractor.
The builder demonstrated remarkable attention to detail and employed the finest elements of the earth to create an enchanting home where Old World craftsmanship meets modern-day functionality. The woodwork alone is enough to swoon even the most discerning buyer, from Cedar doors and windows to vaulted Douglas Fir ceilings and handcrafted vanities throughout the home. Add to that a hand-cut stone entry and wide-plank Pine hardwoods; custom wrought-iron handrail, sconces and chandeliers; intricate travertine tile work in every bathroom; and a massive stone fireplace — these are among the home’s abundance of artisan effects that deliver richness of character while reflecting the utmost quality of craft.
The home lives comfortably, thanks to a circular floor plan, exterior access from nearly every room, and strategic separation of the entry-level master suite from the guest quarters and family room downstairs. A balcony spans the length of the house and complements the sun-drenched backyard and brick patio below. Innately one of a kind, yet perfectly in tune with neighboring luxury homes, this young estate has the birthright to become a lasting piece of Santa Barbara’s history.
As Santa Barbara Travel Guide explains, "The Mission Canyon area of Santa Barbara is one of the prettiest neighborhoods in the city. Home to the Santa Barbara Mission, this spot was chosen by missionaries for its prime location on a rise of land situated between the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ynez mountains. The views in this primarily residential region are spectacular."
