Grand Scale, Intimate Spaces
Breathtaking ocean, island and mountain views are the backdrop to every room of the inviting open concept floor plan with walls of glass. Enjoy the indoor-outdoor lifestyle with an easy flow from the sumptuous formal living areas to the expansive decks and patios. Offering versatility and sophistication with details including all custom plaster walls with sleek, flush baseboards; custom Fleetwood windows, doors and sliders; whole house integrated audio system; custom wide-plank oak hardwood floors throughout.
The kitchen’s thoughtfully designed storage and work spaces make it a joy to use. It has its own ocean view, opening onto the family room and outdoor dining porch. Gather with family or friends around the quartz island to watch as you whip up culinary delights. Imagine everything you or the family chef can create with the Wolf professional’s line of appliances: induction cooktop with downdraft, steam oven, and convection oven. Store your favorite vintages in the Subzero wine fridge, along with your Subzero fridge and freezer. All set against another elegant backdrop with more bookmatched quartz slabs, custom automatic blinds, and under-mount LED lighting. Plus, that view again!
Master Bedroom Wing
That “Aahh” feeling comes over you when you enter this wing. The Master Bedroom Wing is a retreat like no other. The views continue, enhanced by the airy height of the ceiling, yet the inherent privacy and luxurious finishes ground the room in comfort and warmth. Your private, spacious retreat features an integrated home theater system, custom automatic blinds, and dual walk-in closets. From here, you can access both the ocean-facing pool area as well as the secluded mountain view patio. The master bathroom contains a series of luxurious delights, starting with a one of a kind, freestanding modern soaker tub nestled in front of floor-to-ceiling windows facing the purple sunsets of the Santa Ynez Mountains, and the city lights below. Bookmatched quartz slabs continue in here, as you pad around tile floors, then step into a giant, walk-in seamless glass shower with steam. A custom quartz vanity with double quartz sinks, built-in mirror, undermount led lighting, a Neff custom free floating vanity, and pathway floor lighting (for late-night walks to bathroom) complete the feeling of being transported to a world-class luxury spa. You might be tempted to stay in this wing all day, and you could: this versatile Master Wing space also includes an ideal office/5th bedroom with its own ensuite bath.
Family and guests will enjoy that 5-star experience when they come to visit. All three of the guest rooms include gorgeous mountain views, large closets with built-in drawers and shelves, custom blinds, ensuite full baths with seamless, walk-in glass showers, floating mounted Neff vanities, undermount sinks, built-in mirrors, and tile floors.
