Designed by renowned architect Reginald Johnson, this two-story Villa has the feel of old world charm with all the amenities of today. Situated on one acre of beautifully manicured gardens this estate emanates a tranquility and calmness that gives you complete privacy yet is only five minutes from downtown Santa Barbara. You may never want to leave this self -contained dream retreat that is within walking distance of the 5-Star El Encanto Hotel, its bar, restaurant and spa and movie theater.
Enjoy the Villa! – Sipping coffee from bed….breakfast on the terrace…dine Al Fresco. Experience the Santa Barbara “southern exposure”; its views down to Santa Barbara, the harbor, and the channel islands. The pool area entices sunbathers, while a walk through the gardens encourages you to pause and reflect, watch the Koi fish, or simply revel in the moment.
The ground floor of the Villa comprises the spacious living area: The large living room is the center with its cozy fireplace and opens to the large outside terrace. Next to it the family room/media room invites one to relax, play games or watch TV or movies on the large 80’ flat screen with terrific theater sound. A formal dining room can place up to 12 people and leads directly into the large kitchen with its own smaller dining/breakfast area. You will feel at home whether you want to cook or just hang out, watch TV and chat while dinner is being made.

One master suite, romantic with its coffered ceiling and a small Romeo and Juliet like balcony, plenty of walk in closet space and a double marble bathroom with lavish Roman sunken tub with Jacuzzi.. A second suite with a large panoramic window has the best view of the house. The third and fourth bedrooms have en suite bathroom, as well.
