Breathe easy, rest well, and live luxuriously in Pacific Gardens, a stunning 4-bedroom home in Santa Barbara set on a beachside hill with views of the deep blue Pacific. Walk the lush gardens and take in the sun on any of the patios and porches that surround this contemporary Hope Ranch retreat, and enjoy the private swimming pool, hot tub, media room, and workout room. You’ll have everything you need for an unforgettable Santa Barbara getaway.
On the first floor, the main living area is at once grand and subtle. The smooth white walls are adorned with simple sconces and fine artwork, and contemporary lighting illuminates the polished hardwood floors below. This simplicity is complement by a gorgeous fireplace and a gilded mirror that both add elegance to the room. On one side, sliding doors open the wall up to the garden outside, letting the Pacific breeze float in as you lounge on any of the sofas or chairs that surround the coffee table and fireplace. There’s also a round table in the corner where six guests can sit and visit.
When you’re not gathering in the sitting room, the media room is an excellent place to relax with all your guests. Here you’ll find an overstuffed sectional couch and easy chairs surrounding another gas fireplace. A mounted projector on the ceiling and a pull-down screen on the opposite wall make this a perfect room by night, while the French doors let natural light flood in by day.
Enter the kitchen to find an open, airy space that’s both inviting and functional. A kitchen island in the middle is topped with granite from end to end, and features a six-burner stainless steel gas stove. Beneath the stone you’ll find a wooden wine rack, and throughout the kitchen, there’s plenty of space to prepare large meals. You’ll notice speakers in the ceiling here, which are part of a house-wide audio system that’s perfect for entertaining. The dining room has a refined feel, complete with a round dining table that seats eight, a beautifully carved cabinet, and a classic molded chandelier.
The first floor also features a workout space complete with two massage tables, and a poolside room with a gas fireplace to help you warm up and dry after a leisurely swim. You’ll also find a powder room and laundry room for added convenience.
To get upstairs, head back to the large entryway and make your way up the grand staircase, where a lavish wrought iron rail guides you to the Master Suite. At the top of the stairs, you’ll find a luxurious Master Bedroom that features a king-size bed, a large flat screen TV, and a gas fireplace. Outside your window, enjoy views of the palm trees and foliage that stretch to the glittering blue Pacific. When you step out onto your private deck, you’ll have an even better perspective of the beauty that surrounds this home. The attached ensuite bathroom pays homage to the opulence of yesteryear, with a clawfoot stand-alone tub, a stand-alone shower, and two sinks.
Back on the first floor, the guest bedroom has a king-size bed and its own ensuite bathroom that features a combination shower/tub. A second guest bedroom is outfitted with two king-size beds and an attached bathroom with another shower/tub combination, and the final guest bedroom also has a king-size bed. This bedroom has access to a separate guest bathroom on the first floor, which also has a shower/tub combination.
As sumptuous and comfortable as the interior is, you’ll undoubtedly be compelled outside to the gorgeous patios and decks. Step outside to hear the fountain and waterfalls that lead down to the large pond, where you can relax by the pond and watch the koi, turtles and other wildlife. Unwind poolside in the chaise lounges and listen to the trickle of a tile fountain at the edge of the pool. In the distance, palm trees sway in an immaculately-maintained garden with an array of landscaping features. When the time is right, take a dip and float the day away in your private pool. A separate outdoor living space has plush furniture, tables, and an unbeatable view to the ocean--perfect for everything from a morning coffee to a sunset toast.
You’ll experience all this serenity only 15 minutes from downtown Santa Barbara, where you can explore the wine tasting rooms, restaurants, nightlife, and culture of this bustling coastal town. A multi-month stay at Pacific Gardens means experiencing the American Riviera at its finest and making memories you’ll have forever.Get the full listing »
