Spend your days in Santa Barbara, by way of Shady Canyon, in this beautiful luxe estate featuring 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. Inspired by the picturesque Santa Barbara estates, this glorious residence envelops you in warmth and privacy while offering modern luxury amenities such as solar panels and two master suites – one on the main level and one on the second level.
Set high on the site, this Shady Canyon estate welcomes you with its lovely gardens - featuring olive trees and succulents - to the grand main entrance. Once inside, the foyer beckons you into the magnificent interior of the home. As you walk through the entry gallery, with its light and airy space, and beautiful hardwood floors, you get your first glimpse of the marvelous family living salon. Designed with high ceilings for effortlessly elegant entertaining with several seating and gathering areas anchored by a custom-built contemporary fireplace with limestone mantle, the room features high beamed ceilings with two chandeliers, travertine flooring, and two walls of French doors leading to the grounds and providing a view of the beautiful gardens and emerald lawn.
Adjoining this impressive salon is a chef’s gourmet kitchen, outfitted with professional-grade stainless steel appliances in a setting that would make any food connoisseur proud. Caesarstone clads the counters, while Wild Sea quartzite is used for the spacious central island with sink and seating, along with furniture-quality cabinetry finished in a rich stain adds a warm touch, and timeless white subway tiles provide a clean, striking backdrop to the Wolf 6-burner range with acclaimed, quiet Vent-A-Hood® vent hood. In addition, the adjacent spacious breakfast nook with built-in seating offers seating for six or more. Dine formally in the large dining salon enhanced with wood coffered ceiling, and French doors with access to the expansive patio and emerald lawn.
