Santa Barbara Architectural
Discover this Santa Barbara architectural jewel gracing a sprawling ultra-private, flat lot spanning over approximately one acre and featuring a legacy-worthy estate designed for entertaining on a grand scale with modern amenities. Amidst majestic mature trees, this 5 bedroom, 5 and a half bath home presides on expansive grounds – from the picturesque courtyard, to an oversized barbecue area and seating around the large-scale fireplace, to the gracious pool for carefree days and lawns so sprawling that they feel infinite – all with stunning vistas of the Shady Canyon boulder that is the street’s namesake – the Golden Eagle.
Upon entering, luxe living begins in the great reception room, a high-ceilinged space that feels casually serene during the day, yet glamorous at night - and adjacent, the dining hall - both showcasing the incredible interior architecture which offers a traveled perspective with art-quality finishes and intricate wood design adorning each space. This appealing worldly ambiance continues in the kitchen suite showcasing exquisite custom wood cabinetry and encompasses a proper breakfast room with views to the gardens – all connected to a comfortable yet spacious family room giving access to the rear grounds.
A quieter mood prevails upstairs where a sublime main suite comprises an expansive view and spa bath sheathed in flawless stonework offering indulgent amenities ranging from a deep-soaking tub to a large shower - and from a makeup vanity to a large dressing room. Nearby, two gracious guest suites include private bathrooms. The villa boasts a subterranean level with temperature-controlled wine cellar and spacious tasting room – where you can sip your favorites from your collection whenever you please - and an oversized entertaining room.
Noteworthy highlights include an elevator, large laundry room, garage housing three cars with gated motor court and an unrivaled location within the award-winning Irvine School District and only minutes from the University of Irvine (UCI). Shady Canyon residents enjoy two 24-hour guard gates, swim, tennis, pickleball, sports court, clubhouse, as well as hiking/biking trails, playground and a world-famous Golf Club as well as close proximity to world-class shopping and dining; award-winning schools such as University High School, Sage Hill High School and the University of California at Irvine (‘UCI’).
