Santa Barbara lifestyle is infused with unexpected elements of Spanish & Moorish design in this redefined stunningly beautiful estate resting on a knoll in sought-after Hope Ranch.

The floorplan perfectly captures well designed spaces while carefully using design elements to create harmony in textures, colors, space, size and scale. The estate features a wrap-around view front covered porch and hand designed tile front door surround. Upon entering the foyer, it is immediately evident that one is in for a rare experience. The foyer leads to a large open living room with grand stone fireplace that accents the pitched wood beamed ceiling and spectacular hand carved wood divider. The adjoining family room is part of a great space that includes the breakfast nook. Within the classic handmade tile inlaid arch is a full espresso-coffee center. An epicurean designed kitchen is well equipped with professional appliances, center island and walk-in pantry. There is an elegant dining room with custom tile and wrought iron sconces and chandelier. Serene opulence best describes the master suite sanctuary from the custom tiled fireplace, ocean views, the magnificent master bathroom, spacious dressing closet and abundant outdoor deck.
