This gorgeous Mediterranean-villa-style home in tranquil Santa Ynez was built in 2011 and extensively renovated in 2022. It boasts views of hillsides and neighboring vineyards, a private pond, swimming pool, lush grounds and a producing Sangiovese vineyard.
Situated in the heart of all the beautiful region has to offer, it is close to the towns of Santa Ynez and Los Olivos, plus renowned restaurants. This home is less than 40 minutes to Santa Barbara and, with a private airport nearby, other destinations are easily accessible.
Separate office and gym
In addition to the 3,770-square-foot main house, there is a guest house that overlooks the tranquil pond with the vineyard as a backdrop, an approximately 365-square-foot office, and an approximately 405-square-foot gym with a glass door overlooking the pond.
A metal-and-glass front door opens to white-oak floors throughout, and beckons you to enter the living space with soaring ceilings and beautiful light. The moment you enter the home, you feel the stress of the world melting away. There is so much thoughtfulness in the detail of the home, including new marble countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms, and custom light fixtures everywhere. Skylights in the living areas and kitchen provide a pleasing indoor ambiance.
The primary bedroom features a walk-in closet, open-beam ceilings, an abundance of light, and opens to the courtyard and swimming pool. The primary bathroom features all-new high-end surfaces and an oversized soaking tub.
Indoor and outdoor kitchens
Home chefs will appreciate the kitchen outfitted with a 48-inch Thermador range, custom panel-ready refrigerator, farmhouse sink, Italian-marble countertops, large center island, and a temperature controlled wine-storage room. The kitchen opens to a second, outdoor kitchen, and views of the lawn and creekside native vegetation.
The lovely swimming pool has been completely replastered and new mechanical equipment installed. A separate hot tub with flagstone is steps from the pool.
The outdoor area, with mature oak trees and new landscaping designed by Harvest Design Collective, offers magnificent views of the vineyards and mountains, plus a peekaboo view of the pond.
The front courtyard has an oversized fireplace to enjoy during evening gatherings or on colder days. Several flagstone sitting areas that surround the home call for gatherings with friends and loved ones. The 1-acre vineyard produces Sangiovese grapes that you can use to make your very own wine.
Also on the property are a seasonal creek, a windmill, and an irrigated pasture for horses and other animals. New mechanisms have been installed in the two-car garage door, and ample parking for additional cars is provided.
