Enjoy unparalleled panoramic ocean views from this contemporary 3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom home on 2 acres with a resort-like pool and spa, tea house, and 500 SqFt view patio. Walls of glass let in sunrise and sunset views. Unique features include koi pond, man-made "cave" and ocean-view putting green. Property also includes solar panels, thick concrete walls and roof, solarized windows, two wells, A/C, and second building pad with separate, gated entrance. Enjoy the majesty of the Pacific Ocean and Channel Islands from nearly every room of this 3,000+ SqFt home, and the wrap around, 500 SqFt view patio. Extensively renovated about 5 years ago, the home has been updated with great attention given to quality finishes and fixtures. Eco-friendly and comfortable cork floors run throughout the lower level of the home. The master suite has panoramic ocean views through solarized windows. The master bath has a one of a kind shower with a river rock floor and unique walls of stone with embedded fossils. Two copper sinks are set in a mahogany vanity. The guest bath holds a wooden Japanese soaking tub, as well as a copper sink. Outside, you will find an ocean view pool and spa, as well as an IR Sauna. Stroll past the putting greens and you find yourself at the tea house, perfect for meditation or yoga, with a relaxing water feature and koi pond outside. A few steps away is the manmade "cave," with its own spectacular views, and a vent for your campfire. The property has a second building pad with a separate gated driveway, for possible addition to the estate (buyer to verify with county). Two established wells on the property currently supply all of the water needs. The surrounding landscaping of agave, palms and native plants are both drought tolerant and provide further defensible space from fires. The solar panels provide energy for the home and cover a portion of the property's electrical usage. Being on the lower part of Gibraltar Road offers stunning panoramic views as well as easy access to great parks and hiking trails, along with the convenience of being close to town. In fact, you are just 6 miles to Montecito or La Cumbre Plaza, 5.5 miles to the beach, 5 miles to downtown Santa Barbara and only 3.5 miles to Santa Barbara's historic Mission & Rose Gardens. Leave your stress behind--come enjoy your very own peaceful retreat and some of Santa Barbara's most spectacular views!
