Sunset Hill Hacienda
Filled with shadow and light, an authentic adobe estate of understated elegance and majestic views of the statuesque Santa Ynez mountain range awaits. This AB Harmer architectural gem, circa 1928, is a soulful private retreat set among 1.4+/- acres of citrus, maples, aspens and specimen oaks. Situated behind hand hewn stone walls, patios, fountains, boulders, and sandstone pool, you will find yourself ensconced in a world of beauty, privacy and serenity.
Within its walls, the estate boasts 5 fireplaces, soaring wood beams, gleaming floors, and gorgeous views from each and every window. On the way to the luxurious master suite set in a private wing of the home, sit two ensuite bedrooms with double closets and built in storage.
Rounding the hall corner, you then enter the master full of romance, huge beams, and its own sunset viewing porch overlooking the mountains and pool. A corner fireplace provides warmth and ambiance. An adjacent room affords the same views and yet another fireplace. The imposing bathroom is flooded with light, a beamed ceiling, and open shower facing a secret garden. Sunsets and a rising moon can be enjoyed from the soaking tub.
The home’s public spaces flow beautifully for maximum enjoyment. A chef’s kitchen has two pantries, abundant storage, adjacent oversized laundry and a kitchen office, all accessed directly from the covered portico. The oversized central island is made of rare, imported Brazilian Blue marble. A view to the outside loggia and lush landscaping spills from the breakfast nook and on into the cozy family room with fireplace, capturing the morning light. Nearby, two powder rooms offer convenience. There is a lovely library with fireplace that might also serve as another office space.
The residence’s soul resides in a living room with huge original beams, wood floors, double height fireplace and multiple French doors overlooking the two fountain courtyards and expansive mountain views. This wondrous indoor / outdoor entertaining space also hosts large dining area and is just steps away from the kitchen.
