Custom Shady Canyon estate on a very private lot on one of the enclave's most coveted streets and bordered by a scenic nature preserve. Livable luxury - indoors and out - and an ideal family floorplan spanning 6 bedrooms, 6.5 baths. The home is designed on three levels, which includes a basement fitness center and wine cellar, and a tower studio with beautiful views.

Throughout the residence, enjoy sun-drenched, airy interiors with rooms that open effortlessly to the beautiful grounds. The expansive main level includes a master suite with high ceilings, fireplace and dual dressing rooms. The master spa bath includes a large shower clad in Golden Beach limestone with rain and waterfall shower heads, dual water closets, dual vanities, a makeup vanity, and French doors leading to a romantic garden. Also on this level, a separate wing with a hotel-style guest suite with private entrance and French doors opening to the gardens.

The kitchen - designed to exacting chef specifications - includes a custom Blue Star range and a full suite of professional-grade appliances, as well as a large center island for prep and seating, and a breakfast room. The main level also is home to an executive office with a private entrance and garden courtyard, and an inviting family room that connects to the kitchen with fireplace, media and garden views. You'll also find formal living and dining rooms on this floor, designed in an appealing great room layout with impressive limestone fireplace, double-height beam and truss ceilings, and a wall of French doors onto the sheltered loggia for casually elegant indoor/outdoor entertaining.

Upstairs, a dedicated family level encompasses four spacious bedrooms - a rarity in Shady Canyon. Each of these bedrooms boasts an ensuite bath and walk-in closet and one features a balcony providing stair access to the entry courtyard, making it a perfect guest room as well as convenient to the main l evel. One of these bedrooms currently is used as a media/family room ideal for use as a playroom, media room, study suite or bonus room. At every turn in this spectacular residence, an unerring eye for design and a sense of timeless style is evident, with exquisite finishes ranging from massive-cut limestone and French-cut white oak flooring to antique stone pavers from the island of Cyprus and artisan millwork.

Technology amenities abound as well, with an advanced security system, reverse osmosis water system, state-of-the-art/whole-house AV system with 6.1 full Dolby Surround Sound, and central vacuum. Outside, the luxury continues, with numerous outdoor "rooms" for relaxing and entertaining, including an alfresco fireplace terrace, loggia dining and living areas, a shimmering saltwater pool and spa, and a secluded fountain courtyard.

Other highlights of this Santa Barbara-inspired estate include finished garaging for three cars, a generously scaled private motor court, lush landscaping with mature trees, and all of the world-class amenities of Shady Canyon, including 24/7 guard gate, swim, tennis and fitness facilities, hiking and biking trails, playground, and the famed Shady Canyon Golf Club.
