This 4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home at 1150 Bel Air Drive has just undergone an extensive remodel, with numerous upgrades to its systems and aesthetics providing a combination of luxury touches and low-maintenance living. The home is listed with Daniel Zia for $1,495,000. You can call Daniel for more information at 805.637.7148.
A private lane leads from Bel Air Drive to a small enclave of homes nestled among mature oak trees. This spectacular home has been taken down to the studs and extensively rebuilt, enlarging the home and adding 350 square feet of decking to fully enjoy the stunning views. All the main living areas, including the master suite are on the entry level—leaving the downstairs for guests and extra entertaining space. The exterior was redesigned to present a charming facade reminiscent of the French countryside, including antiqued wooden shutters, new carriage-style garage door, carriage-house lighting and cupola, a vine-covered trellis and a Dutch style front entry door.
As you step inside, your eyes are captivated by both the sweeping panoramic views and the architectural details and fine quality finishes. Gray washed wide plank eucalyptus wood floors have been installed throughout the home, creating continuity between the living spaces. The new Andersen windows and sliding doors have been custom stained to match the gray washed floors and are metal-clad on the exterior for long-term durability and low maintenance. Coved ceilings, bullnosed corners, and rich baseboard molding are small details that add to the rich character. The living area features a fireplace with rustic wood mantel and a custom wrought-iron railing surrounds the staircase to the lower level. A brand new gourmet chef’s kitchen provides all the necessary appointments for outstanding meals and entertaining. Granite counters and a subway tile backsplash compliment the custom maple cabinetry, complete with soft-close hardware on all drawers and cabinets and pullout shelves on many lower cabinets for maximum storage space. Appliances include a Viking 5-burner stove, Viking french door refrigerator and dishwasher, and a Sharp microwave drawer. The luxury master suite offers the best views in the house, a custom sliding barn door for secondary access, access to the view deck, and a large walk-in closet. The master bathroom has been artfully designed so one can enjoy the ocean views while using the custom dual vanity or the large walk-in shower. The large downstairs family room offers stunning mountain and city views and makes for a great media room or second entertaining area with easy access to the lower patios. Two more bedrooms, the laundry area, a guest bathroom, and a wonderful office or 4th bedroom with lots of light and great views complete the downstairs level.
Along with the aesthetic upgrades, this home also features many upgrades to its systems. Two new furnaces have been installed for a dual-zone heating system (one for each level). A tankless water heater and all new plumbing system were also installed along with a rebuilt 1,200 gallon septic tank. The electrical system was completely replaced, including a new 200-amp panel, new wiring, and recessed lighting. Along with the new windows, additional insulation was installed, and a rain-water collection system was tied into the gutters to make this both an energy and utility efficient home.
This fine estate offers the rare combination of fine architectural design, incredible views, and a proximity to downtown without the hustle and bustle, limited parking, and other constraints found in comparable view properties in other Santa Barbara locations.
