A 1,000-bottle wine cave, reminiscent of a kiva typically found in Native American villages, is literally the spiritual heart of this newly built “modern farmhouse”-style home offering unobstructed 360-degree views of the Santa Ynez Valley.
Laura Drammer in our Santa Ynez Valley office is listing agent for the exceptional listing at 2111 Random Oaks in Solvang. Shannon Scott Design of Santa Barbara curated every finish and detail throughout the magnificent hilltop residence, from window frames to patio pavers to custom-built cabinetry.
Sited at the end of a paved and gated private road, the equestrian-zoned property has ample space for a barn, stable, tennis court, or even a helipad. Offered at $9,500,000, the 4-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom house spreads over 4,666+/ square feet on a 12.5+ acre lot.
Large windows and glass doors flood virtually every room with the valley’s sublime, warm light. In the living room, walls of glass and French doors provide views to the east and west.
The second-story observatory could be transformed into a fabulous second office, yoga studio, or meditation room. Ideal for entertaining, the family room with wet bar has an under-counter Perlick double-tap-orator, custom-built cabinetry, and a marble-faced fireplace. An octagonal office offers dramatic views in a soothing ambiance plus exterior access.
The primary bedroom is a serene sanctuary with glass doors and windows that take advantage of the panoramic valley views. The room also has a window seat, vaulted ceilings, and a spacious walk-in closet with custom cabinetry.
The light-filled primary bathroom offers a custom double vanity, oversized walk-in shower, slate soaking tub with a huge picture window, and steel-framed glass doors that open to the private patio and outdoor shower. Three additional spacious bedrooms each have an adjacent or en-suite bathroom with Tuscan white marble countertops, glass doors, and walk-in closets.
Home chefs will delight the kitchen’s 60-inch Wolf gas range With 6 burners, infrared charbroiler and griddle, Wolf warming drawer, 48-inch Sub-Zero refrigerator, 30-inch Sub-Zero wine refrigerator, and Asko dishwasher. The kitchen also provides plenty of room in the stunning custom cabinetry, while the workspace includes Via Lattea leathered quartzite countertops and island accented by a new Ravenna Del Greco Calcutta Radiance backsplash. The pantry is equipped with another 48-inch Sub-Zero refrigerator, along with custom cabinetry.
Home baristas will spend lots of time at the coffee bar with a 24-inch Meile plumbed whole-bean coffee system, 30-inch Meile warming drawer, and 24-inch Meile speed oven.
The laundry room makes wash days easy with a Maytag front-loading steam washing machine and gas dryer, plus Via Lattea leathered quartzite countertops and backsplash.

In addition to the front patio with a fireplace, the home has several other fabulous patios for entertaining, all with limestone pavers and walkways. The attached oversized 2-car garage features French doors and the option to expand as a living space. A separate detached garage accommodates 2 cars or could be outfitted as a home gym or media room.
The subterranean kiva of over 2,124 square feet is patterned after a round gathering place traditionally used by Native Americans. The sumptuous, 1,000-bottle capacity wine cave provides a fantastic setting for tastings and dining, with its kitchen, under-counter Perlick double-tap keg-orator, fireplace, and French doors for indoor/outdoor entertaining. Wine racks include downward lights, illuminating rows of bottles. There’s also a powder room, custom light fixtures, security system, and Lutron lighting system.
