Gracious & Elegant Hilltop
Escape to a magnificent hilltop Mediterranean villa on over 5.1 acres of property, overlooking the golf course, mountains and distant ocean views. A gated drive winds past majestic oaks and towering palms to the impressive residence on the knoll. A circular motor court and three-car garage provide ample parking for residents and guests. Ascend the curving stairways that encircle the courtyard fountain and reflecting pool in the sheltered front garden. Before you is the gracious glass and iron door that invites all to come into the fine home. Upon entering your eyes will be drawn to the exquisite architectural features and details throughout. Hand-painted beams, intricate wrought iron railings, frescoes gracing the walls of the circular stairs, limestone and oak hardwood floors and eye-catching arches with Cantera stone columns are just a few of the examples of the fine craftsmanship that is found within the boundaries of the property. French doors open from the beautiful living and dining rooms to stone terraces and garden patios with outdoor fireplace. The versatile floor-plan and the flow of the rooms is ideal for the Santa Barbara indoor/outdoor lifestyle. A perfect setting for soire?es, the verdant gardens surround guests in a private world of mature oaks & palms, fountains, verandas, courtyards & the hidden pool and spa. Meandering paths wind through colorful gardens to intimate sitting areas. A shared well provides ample water to maintain the established landscaping and gardens. The estate overlooks the world class La Cumbre Country Club golf course and is just down the lane from the clubhouse (memberships available). Hope Ranch also boasts a privately accessed beach, miles of equestrian trails and excellent public and private schools close by. Fine dining, entertainment and shopping are just minutes away.
