223 Vista De La Cumbre, Santa Barbara, CA 93105

Impeccably designed with thoughtful attention to every detail, this special property is sophisticated, tranquil, and welcoming. Every inch of this home has been renovated over the years, and masterfully re-designed with rich natural finishes and contemporary amenities.  Traditional features like crown molding, custom paint techniques, built-in wood cabinetry, plantation shutters, two fireplaces, and rich hardwood floors, blend with state-of-the-art electronics such as custom lighting inside and out, and a temperature controlled wine closet.

A new gourmet kitchen is surrounded by sleek oak cabinetry, Ann Sacks tile, and Caeserstone counters. The Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer/wine cooler and Wolf 6-burner range add a professional chef’s signature to this well-planned space. Shoji-style sliding panels separate the kitchen from the formal dining room that features a stunning Holly Hunt light fixture.


From the well-appointed living room and bright dining room, step through French doors to the trellis-covered flagstone back patio. Custom Sunbrella draperies and retractable awnings overhead add a romantic touch. A built-in Dacor barbecue with dual side burners guarantees outdoor entertaining will be effortless. There is no mistaking the restful ambiance emanating from the waterfall that pours into a deep Koi Pond that is the central feature of this fully fenced and professionally landscaped space. Designed perfectly for entertaining or restful contemplation, the backyard has an innate zen-like quality and is truly magical.


The master suite is elegant and timeless with built-in fireplace and hand-crafted floor to ceiling cherry bookshelves. French Doors open to the back yard, with calming sounds of the waterfall feature as the perfect lullaby for a good nights sleep. The master bathroom is reminiscent of a fine day-spa, with unique use of etched glass, marble, smooth boulders, and stone. A walk-in shower, large spa tub, and “his and hers” vanities of rich cherry wood complete this inviting and relaxing space. Light streams in through the large skylight overhead, and the walk-in closet is surprisingly spacious, offering an abundance of built-in cabinets and storage shelves.

The guest bedroom with bay window is generous in size. For working professionals, this could be a perfect home office. The tastefully designed guest bathroom across the hall is beautifully appointed with an over-sized shower and hand-crafted maple vanity, with the added feature of a morning toe warmer.

The friendly neighborhoods of San Roque hold a prominent place on the Santa Barbara map, making the ideal location of this home the final, and possibly the finest, of all the amenities of this very special property.
