Property Description:

A perfect Santa Barbara retreat! Beautiful, warm and inviting home tastefully detailed with art and special touches. Hardwood floors throughout, new custom kitchen (gas stove/oven, microwave, dishwasher, built-in fridge, dishes and cookware, George Forman Grill, coffee maker) custom slate bathrooms, skylights, French doors from master bedroom (Cal King) to secluded, magical 2-level Zen Garden with two stone fountains, bamboo forests and meditation open-air, raised Bali Cabana. 2 flat screen TVs, Wifi, DVD player, Bose Dock for music from iPhone, Neptune washer and dryer off the kitchen, Massage table upon request, off-street parking, walking distance to the Old Mission and downtown, great stores and restaurants.

A Santa Barbara celebrity's home. There is a Gelson's Market, Trader Joe's and Ralphs Grocery Store all within 5 minutes of the house. Also close by downtown are galleries, shops, MANY great restaurants (Opal, Olio e Limon, Downey's, Jane's, Arigato, Bouchon) and Renaud's French Bakery which makes the best croissants and quiche this side of Paris. The Art Museum, Lobero, Granada, Ensemble and Center Stage Theatre are very close downtown and offer year-round live theatre and concerts. The Santa Barbara Bowl offers world class contemporary music concerts. There are multiple beautiful beaches easily accessed, and SB is a very friendly bike town with many bike lanes and great places to ride. Solvang and Los Olivos are just over the hill filled with wineries and tasting rooms - a wine-lovers paradise! Or... just lounge in the Zen Garden - two peaceful areas to sit and read, listen to music, meditate and enjoy the serene natural, Asian-inspired setting. Both bedrooms have closet space and drawers cleared for your clothing and storage. The Master has a very comfortable Cal King platform bed, a large flat screen TV (with Netflix), DVD player, and built-in ceiling speakers. The room features Asian furniture and antique French floor to ceiling panels behind the bed. French doors lead to the Zen Garden. Both bathrooms feature custom green slate and glass walk-in showers, pedestal sinks. Towels are available for both. The master bath has a skylight over the shower. Non-smoking house, no pets please. This is not a child-friendly residence. About the Owner: I am a 5th generation Santa Barbara native with deep roots in this community.

I am happy to tell you about great things to see and do in this amazing city by the sea. I am a writer, director and visual artist. I just finished working on a wonderful documentary series on the California Channel Islands titled WEST OF THE WEST, which aired on PBS recently. There will be a DVD waiting for you to view. The Islands are a great day trip while you are here - with daily boat trips from Ventura or Santa Barbara to Santa Cruz, Anacapa and Santa Rosa Islands. Kayaking out there is incredible - also great to kayak along our coast here - rentals in the Harbor or through SB Adventures. Also Lotus land - one of the premiere gardens in the world is here in Montecito, not far from the Upper Village, lots of movie star's homes, and Oprah's house. You may see her around. This is my home and I have invested my life and soul in it. You will find my art throughout (photography and assemblage art). People who have stayed here tell me they feel very comfortable and peaceful here, which I love to hear. It is in an ideal location - very close to everything! Walk or quick drive to downtown or the beach - walk to the Old Mission and Mission Canyon.
