California living at its best. This modern masterpiece by Los Angeles architect Barbara Bestor offers unparalleled views of ocean, islands and mountains in a completely private setting on 160 acres of unspoiled wilderness. Bestor is best known for both residential and commercial/retail projects for L.A.’s creative community.
The newly constructed home is designed for entertaining and relaxation, with custom glass walls that slide away to bring the outdoors in. The center of the home is a loft-like space, anchored by an open kitchen with European style cabinetry. On one side, a 25-foot telescoping glass door retracts to reveal a panoramic view of the entire Santa Barbara coastline. The expansive room also leads into a lushly planted courtyard with fireplace.
The master bedroom has an en suite spa bath complete with Japanese-style soaking tub and steam shower. There are two additional bedrooms with shared full bath, media room, powder room, and a yoga room with private garden.
A separate fully equipped one bedroom guest house sleeps up to four comfortably.
Exuberant native landscaping completes the picture, blending the compound seamlessly into the environment.
Four years were spent building this home and the combination of architectural style and meticulous detail in finish make this property truly one-of-a-kind.
