Description from owner

Gorgeous, open, soulful home on 11 beautiful acres, w/ trees, stunning views, pool, hot tub & private trails that look out to the entire coastline. A 'far away' retreat a mere 12 minutes to downtown Santa Barbara, 5 minutes from uptown (Whole foods etc..), 5 minutes from the ocean and 30 minutes from Solvang, Los Olivos wine country. Rest, recalibrate, renew. Be. Happy!

I am new to this site, but on other online platforms I have well over a hundred 5 STAR REVIEWS. Also I take great care with any sweet people who visit my land, so always a phone connect for a soulful hello, answer questions and be sure it's all feeling in alignment. Thank you!! Ok.. more about this amazing piece of Santa Barbara Earth...

The house itself is a beautiful, very open, light 1 bedroom, 1 bath space with a modern living room/kitchen, mountain views and a wood back deck with a wonderful claw footed bath tub under a grand pepper tree. Modern, bright, soulful and homey with skylights, Bose surround system for phone input or CDs, full projected movie theatre with surround sound in the bedroom!, glass french doors and numerous windows (very open and light) looking out to the Santa Barbara mountain range... a STUNNINGLY GORGEOUS VIEW!

The open door ways expand out to the land which becomes an extension of the living space. I so enjoy the beautiful little birds that land on the outside fountain, the sound of hawks, laying chickens (fresh eggs for you!) and horses. The sun is supreme here, the air quality medicinal and the weather has a habit of being a perfectly kind 73 degrees and sunny. Hang out by day or by moon with the countless places to dwell whether on the outside bed, the cozy chairs or the soft grass.

The incredible thing about this place is that it's a mere 2 miles to shopping malls, Whole Foods and restaurants (5 minutes) and 10 minutes to downtown Santa Barbara. We're also just 30 minutes from Santa Ynez, Los Olivos, Solvang (wine country). The land is unique because it feels like you're very remote and off the grid out in nature (which you are) but then it's just minutes to get anywhere in Santa Barbara. Very find rare to find such a spot with so much surrounding private serene land!

There is a true home feeling here... clean, soulful and modern with gorgeous wood floors, a two headed hand tiled shower, organic California king mattress and other good things you'd want in a dwelling, not to mention an UPRIGHT ACOUSTIC PIANO in the bedroom!

We also happen to have on the top tier of the property a beautiful POOL (minimally fenced in/ NOT childproof!) and an awesome HOT TUB surrounded by a canopy of gorgeous oak trees. Incredible under the stars!! For kids, there is a great playground on the property, a little playhouse outside the main house and a large trampoline looking out to an open forest of trees.

Wireless internet for your laptop is included (but no big downloads/uploads please due to limited usage. We are on a satellite here due to being in an enchanted valley away from neighborhood houses, so normal internet is not possible here). Cell phones usually work great.. internet etc

The setting is ideal for two adults + up to 1 maybe 2 little ones which I can provide pads for if needed. ($50 extra per child per night to support setting them up properly! and open to negotiating based on your needs). For sure open to well behaved pets!

Again, I so love having people here.. part of the unfolding story of this special dwelling and have appreciated how everyone has treated this place with honor, respect.. all of us taking good care with it so it's here for everyone's enjoyment. Makes me glad!!!

About the area

The property is surrounded by other large parcels with land and then national forest. 5 minutes from uptown Santa Barbara shops, 2 miles from the 101, minutes to the top of the mountain range overlooking all of Santa Barbara and the backcountry. This is not a neighborhood area, but a large natural land which miraculously is extremely close to anywhere you'd like to go in town or beaches.. all within 10 minutes from here.
