An estate unlike any other, Los Olivitos captures the soul and romance long equated with Santa Barbara – The American Riviera. A short distance from the Orient Express’ luxurious El Encanto resort, a rare parcel hosts the captivating Riviera residence.

 

The Andalusian style residence pays homage to the area’s Spanish and Mediterranean heritage characterized by staggered Mission red roof tiles, ironwork and exposed balconies. Stepping through the entry into the foyer, the home’s interior exudes an air of warmth and serenity with architectural details complementing terra cotta floors and French doors.

 

 

Uniquely oriented, approximately 2.74 flat and usable acres take in ocean and harbor views to the south while the magnificent Santa Ynez Mountains tower to the north. At the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, entry gates open to a whimsical motor court lined with mature olive trees and stone-lined wildflower beds.

 

The spacious dining room offers a fantastic indoor/outdoor feel with two walls of French doors opening to opposing yet equally captivating views. To the south, an ocean vista glistens from beyond the central courtyard and trickling fountain.

To the north, the Santa Ynez Mountains tower above the home’s lush lawn and ancient oak trees. Hexagonal stone floors and a rich Alder beamed ceiling offer a warm and welcoming atmosphere to the sophisticated yet casual dining room.

Connecting off of the dining room, the grand formal living room is replete with both architectural and natural artistry including a soaring pitched ceiling with exposed Douglas Fir trusses and an impressive fireplace. Outside, an ocean vista, mature oaks and rose gardens offer a lovely natural aesthetic. Completing this wing of the home, a comfortable family room offers paneled walls, mountain views, a cozy fireplace and French doors opening to a sun-filled patio.

At the home’s center, the fantastic eat-in kitchen offers an ideal gathering place for family and friends. While fabulously spacious, the kitchen has been lovingly designed to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Created to emulate those found in the Santa Barbara Courthouse, custom painted tiles adorn the walls affording unique charm, luxuriously complemented by a tray ceiling and expansive marble island.

 

 

butler’s pantry, top of the line appliances and farmhouse sink create a chef’s kitchen. A mudroom, screened porch, office, powder room and spacious laundry facilities complete this wing of the home. Outside, a wrap around terrace provides an ocean-view dining area for enjoying Santa Barbara’s idyllic year round climate.

Upstairs, an ocean view balcony provides a quiet space for viewing Santa Barbara’s majestic sunsets. The lavish master suite’s mountain views, Juliette balcony and whitewashed brick fireplace create a subdued air of romance.

Two walk-in closets lead to the master’s sumptuous ensuite bath. A private balcony overlooks the Santa Ynez Mountains offering a serene backdrop to the soaking tub, lounge, dual marble vanities and oversized shower, creating a heavenly private escape. A charming mountain-view bedroom suite, third bedroom and full bath complete the residences’ second level.

Off the foyer, French doors lead to the intimate library. Built-in Alder bookcases adorn the space where oak floors accompany a beamed ceiling and impressive fireplace. Large windows frame the staggering mountain view while French doors open to a patio and a fountain softly babbling amid a lush garden.
