As you travel across the bridge toward this secluded Hope Ranch Annex home, you know this is going to be something very special. This home was transformed in 2000 when the current owners extensively remodeled and added a wonderful guest house. This Mediterranean style home is a perfect combination of style and function.
The main living spaces are generously sized with wonderful architectural details and are perfect for entertaining. The modern updated kitchen has an abundance of storage and a great Corian counter. The kitchen opens to the large family room, overlooking the private back garden on one side and the quintessential Santa Barbara flagstone and paver courtyard on the other. This is really the hub of this home, kitchen, family room and courtyard; ideal for indoor outdoor casual living. The living room, with an inviting tumbled marble fireplace, is just perfect for a cozy get together. The formal dining room with a beehive style fireplace has lovely views of the front garden.
The bedroom wing boasts a spacious master bedroom with French doors leading to a lovely sitting area, where you can take advantage of the private back garden with hot tub. The newly updated master bathroom has a simple, timeless elegance, and with two walk in closets storage space is never an issue. Off the master is a huge private office, with lots of built-ins. It is ideally set up for two people and also has access to the exterior. This wing includes a second nicely sized bedroom and well-appointed guest bathroom. Upstairs is another bedroom suite with a lovely balcony with views of the mountains. This suite is nicely set apart from the rest of the house.
Across the courtyard is the charming guest house. The guest house has similar attractive architectural details and spacious rooms which give a wonderful cohesive look and feel. With a delightful living room, kitchen with breakfast nook and full bedroom and bath… what more can you ask for? This property with approximately 0.6+/- of an acre is beautifully landscaped and well designed, with mature trees and a perfect mix of native drought tolerant plants and some lawn to play... don’t miss this very special property!
