Boasting a prominent address in the historic and sought-after San Roque neighborhood, this mid-century, ranch-style home captures the essence of CA living. Constructed in 1951 and updated over the years, this 4 bed, 2 bath + 2 half bath home is a property of distinction. Situated on over 1/2 an acre of oak-studded grounds, an extended driveway and location deep into the lot offer the ultimate privacy.
Central to the home's floor plan is a formal living room, where dramatic views of the Santa Ynez Mountains anchor a luminous space through large picture windows, volume beam ceilings, engineered wood flooring, and 1 of 2 fireplaces. The adjacent sunny dining area and foyer embrace the open concept with immediate access to the expansive back lawn, brick terrace, and surrounding grounds. Imagine this flat usable oasis with a pool!
Terra cotta tile flooring compliments an updated and light-filled kitchen with a professional Wolf range, bountiful cabinetry, pantry, built-in desk, laundry area, and powder bath. Internal stairs lead from the kitchen to a private addition with two upstairs bedrooms, a full bath, and separate entrance. The north-facing bedroom offers a panoramic view of the Santa Ynez mountains, while the south-oriented bedroom overlooks the lush front gardens.
In the south wing off the foyer is a multi-faceted media room/den with built-in bookshelves, a second fireplace, and access to a sunny side yard. A hallway continues to the primary suite; the attached dressing room and expansive mirrored vanity add a bit of old Hollywood glamour, and a tiled shower and bathtub complete the suite. An adjacent half-bath offers dual access to the primary bath and the hallway for convenience. The fourth bedroom and primary suite each open to a shady walled-in courtyard via classic-style Dutch doors.
A covered breezeway off the north wing connects the oversized, detached two-car garage with gated bonus parking for a boat or RV. A sizable storage room off the garage offers usable square footage for various needs.
This verdant and private property sits adjacent to Steven's Park, with a playground and trailheads, further encompassing quintessential Santa Barbara living. Living in San Roque offers prime location, classic architecture, peaceful surroundings, and the convenience of being minutes from anywhere.
