365 El Ceilito Balcony

The living room is at the center of the house. It is generous in size, with a fireplace, hardwood floors, and a wall of windows opening to a large covered patio, deck and unobstructed ocean views. The adjacent parlor is a more casual space, with a large enclosed wet bar, exposed beam ceilings and hardwood floors and access to the deck for morning coffee, twilight barbecues and year-round sunsets. The dining room has spectacular wraparound views, hardwood floors and recessed lighting.


The gourmet kitchen has a large granite-topped center island, beautiful herringbone-pattern hardwood floors, a laundry room and access to its own patio. Beyond the kitchen, the family room/library is a spacious, bright room with a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows, a fireplace, black slate floors, extensive built-in shelves and cabinets. It looks out onto the entry court rock garden and waterfall and has a powder room adjacent.


The bedroom wing includes the master suite and two additional bedrooms as well as a hallway that has built-in cabinetry with lighted alcoves for the display of artwork. The master is a private sanctuary, complete with ocean views, office, sun porch, enclosed patio and a gorgeous master bath with generous custom built-ins, tilework and oval shower enclosure with views through the treetops to the mountains beyond. The office has a separate entry that opens to the main courtyard fish ponds, rock garden and soothing waterfall sounds. The sun porch, with black slate floors, presently a garden room, could be used as a reading room or exercise room. Each of the two additional bedrooms has a full bath.


The upper level was once a separate guesthouse but was joined to the main house in 2008. It includes a private one-bedroom guest suite with a large sitting room, fireplace, balcony, tiled galley kitchen and full bath with views into the treetops. There are two additional en-suite bedrooms on this level as well as a treetop loft/study room with access from the home’s main entry in addition to the upper level private entry.


The incomparable gardens are matched only by the grandeur of the panoramic views. The property slopes downward from the house. Decks, patios and seating areas closer to the house yield to exquisite grassy lawns artfully strewn with enormous sculptural boulders that are natural to the Mission Canyon area. The very private lighted pool and pool deck have expansive ocean views.


Cultivated over the last 20 years, the specimen garden is a horticultural wonderland. It is served by city water, plus connections for city agricultural water, and a property well that has two 2,500-gallon storage tanks. Paths meander among trees, shaded seating areas and magnificent boulders, streams and stone work. Automatic irrigation (30+ stations) covers the garden’s four zones: strolling garden with lawns, boulders, Japanese pines and fruit trees; valley garden with rain-fed stream, shade trees and gazebo; cactus and bamboo garden; and play garden with picnic area and more fruit trees.


This sublime property is Santa Barbara—and California—living at its finest. It combines sophisticated design with indoor-outdoor casual comfort to create a truly sumptuous private estate.
