Shadowbrook - Private Park-like Setting in Montecito
Shadowbrook is nestled in one of Montecito's exclusive neighborhoods tucked below the foothills. Surrounded by ancient oaks, evergreens, tropical palms and blooming bougainvillea, this property is peaceful and serene. Relax to the sounds of the stream-like water feature that meanders through the property and lush gardens, terminating beside the newly constructed pool. This home is a breath of fresh air!
The property featur es a 3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom Main house, plus a private detached Guest Studio. This bright and open home was designed to take advantage of nature's canvas. An entire wall of wide bi-fold doors open to the garden to accomplish a seamless blending of indoor and outdoor spaces. Open beam ceilings soar over wide distressed wood plank floors that feel smooth underfoot, giving the inside a rustic yet sophisticated feel.
The Living Room offers 2 different spaces to sit and relax. There is a comfortable seating area near the corner fireplace and Dining Room, and a cozy area for watching television near the Master Bedroom.
A wall of natural sandstone separates the newly remodeled Kitchen from the Living Room. All the necessary culinary appliances, tools and dishes have been provided in order to prepare great meals with ease. There is plenty of room for conversation with the cook, or to help with the dishes!
The Master Bedroom, with king-size bed and walk-in closet, has walls of glass windows and doors on 2 sides which allow an amazing amount of light and soft breezes to permeate the space. Easy access to the back garden is provided. The spacious Master Bathroom features a very clever glass shower with an exterior door to the outdoor patio. Guests will find this very convenient when going to and from the spa just outside on the elevated garden terrace nearby.
The home was smartly designed to stay seasonally cool with the use of lower louvered windows that can be opened in the 2 Guest Bedrooms to allow gentle breezes to pass through. Bedroom Suite #2 has a queen-size bed and a full Bathroom with shower. Bedroom #3 has 2 twin beds and a Bathroom with shower/bathtub combination.
A detached Studio Guest Suite offers a wonderful space for those seeking a bit more privacy from the activity of the main house. With a king-size bed, full Bathroom and sofa sleeper, this could be the perfect haven for a couple, a small family, or overflow guests to share.
Clearly, it is the blending of the indoor and outdoor spaces that define this Montecito treasure. The wrap around deck runs the length of the home. Stepping down from the deck, the sloping lawn leads down to the newly constructed sparkling pool. The mountain views from the pool are spectacular.
The Upper Village of Montecito and Westmont College are each a short 5 minute drive from the property. Butterfly Beach and the wide sandy beaches off Cabrillo Boulevard are just 10 minutes away, as is downtown Santa Barbara. Or take a short walk to Lotusland, right down the street.
This ideal home was set-up for the sole purpose of creating the perfect vacation home for World Class travelers. Whether a quick business trip is on the calendar, or family plans to spend a leisurely break on the Central Coast, relax and enjoy this wonderful home in a picture perfect setting.
