A sense of superb timelessness and remarkable craftsmanship will encompass you from the moment you enter through the gate in the magnificent stone wall. Designed by Louis Mazzetti and built in 1959 by and for the home's only owner (a master stone craftsman), this home is one of the most striking and authentic examples of Mid-Century modern architecture one will find in Santa Barbara. Upon entering the home one is immediately impressed by the flow. Hand selected wood beams frame walls of glass, creating a seamless transition between inside and out. This integration is further augmented the use of Yosemite slate as both interior flooring and exterior walkways. Wood and stone combine beautifully with concrete block and glass to create an environment that is minimalist yet warm and inviting Streamlined custom wood cabinetry, chrome hardware, and enduring terrazzo floors adorn the kitchen. Accent lighting washes beautifully across block walls and wood beams in the adjacent dining room. All anchored by a large fireplace featuring a built-in stone bench for warming oneself by the fire.
Completing the main level are two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a sitting room. While the main living areas in the home are primarily focused on the enclosed gardens, the bedrooms are focused on the ocean. The original cork flooring and wood paneling are remarkedly well preserved, which attests to the exceptional level of care the property has received from the day it was built. Downstairs are an additional third and fourth bedroom, as well as a third full bathroom, laundry room, and large 2 car garage, giving the property dual-living potential.
Perched above Santa Barbara, with city, ocean and island views, it is within walking distance to the Bowl and numerous eateries in the inviting Milpas corridor. The beautifully landscaped and tranquil front patio, complete with stone grotto and multiple specimen trees, is a peaceful escape from the busyness of life. Don't miss this opportunity to own this extraordinary, one-of-a-kind home.
