Embraced by 2.3 private acres of lush mature landscaping including old-growth oak, olive, citrus and avocado, this delightful single level, 4-bedroom 3.5 bath traditional home is graced with a versatility of indoor/outdoor design ideal for both Santa Barbara-style entertaining and living in intimate communion with nature.  

With views of the surrounding greenery from every window and mountain views from the front lawn, multiple sets of French doors open onto several stone patios: one featuring an outdoor entertainment kitchen, bar and firepit with built-in seating and another with raised IP wood lounge deck, spa and sun or yoga deck.  Creative outdoor lighting turns these patios into magic after dusk. 

The enchanting front entrance leads into a light drenched open-concept living space with tongue-and-groove vaulted ceilings, walls of glass and wide-plank wood floors.  Both the gracious living room and the airy dining room boast their own attractive fireplaces and French doors that open onto the entertainment patio and a covered patio respectively.  The impressive floor-to-ceiling white brick of the living room fireplace brings texture to the clean lines of the open space, while adding even more reflected light. The tranquil melody of water bubbling in a large stone fountain at the edge of the dining room patio reverberates through the main living areas when the French doors are open, creating a soothing and serene ambiance. 

The well-appointed kitchen sparkles with Viking stainless steel appliances including a chef’s 6-burner stove and two convection ovens, a convenient breakfast bar and natural stone counters that contribute to a peaceful palette of soft tans and whites harmonizing with the vibrant greens of nature that shimmer through the windows. Added luxury touches are a wine cooler, extra prep sink and a spacious combo pantry and laundry room with abundant storage cupboards and a powder room.   

To the right of the main entrance, 3 of the light-filled 4 bedrooms are ensuite, and all have wood floors and vaulted ceilings.  The primary suite glows with the warmth of white wood-cladding walls and soft natural light from expansive windows that frame nature’s lush green foliage like a Rousseau painting.  A long bench seat stretches beneath the windows, inviting one to sit in contemplation of this quiet nature oasis. Two separate closets, including a walk-in with organizers, provide spacious storage and the bath, with its sculptural, free-standing claw-foot tub and separate glass and stone tile shower, completes this lovely ensuite.  

The second spacious bedroom has an attractively updated bath with walk-in glass-enclosed shower and a natural stone vanity counter. The third bedroom also has a recently updated bath and a door to the back patio with access to an outdoor shower convenient for rinsing off after soaking in the spa.  The fourth bedroom would make an excellent comfy den/office/tv room with its cozy fireplace and French doors leading to the entertainment patio. 

Imagine approaching this picture-perfect home from a long winding driveway with dancing light filtering through the oaks.  Continue past a lovely tree-shaded area with room for the creative addition of a gazebo or art studio and proceed up to the picturesque welcome area.  Walk through a whimsical gated trellis and feel the world fade away…. 

Completing this picture-perfect home is a covered breezeway connecting the 2-car garage and 2 separate parking areas for up to 10 cars.  Amazingly, the leafy privacy of this woodland retreat is only a short distance to Hope Ranch community beach, equestrian trails and tennis courts, as well as shopping areas and the trendy Boathouse restaurant at Hendry's Beach.
