Unsurpassed views and chic, sophisticated design are captured in this stunning Santa Barbara Contemporary home.  With the keen eye of Shubin + Donaldson Architects, known to create livable environments and refined sensitivity of the land, the home was extensively remodeled to display exciting features and create a comfortable daily lifestyle.

The moment you enter the home, the views of the ocean, island and city unfold into each of the main rooms. The use of unique materials such as imported Italian crème marfil and pietra di bedonia tiles, to custom designed mahogany veneer cabinetry, fabric and walnut planked sound walls, lighting and state of the art electronics, this home will take your breath away.  

The private outdoor living areas are beautifully designed with lighting throughout. The main level garden has a flagstone patio and succulent garden featuring a centerpiece of golden barrel cacti and agave paryii. The lower drought tolerant garden was created with a wide set of steps and landings traversing the entire width of the property. Stone retaining walls and built-in crème marfil benches allow you to just reflect on the natural beauty while looking out to the ocean beyond. 

A wonderful home for the most discriminating buyer.
