Showcasing streamlined design, a rambling floor plan, and idyllic surroundings, this Samarkand Hills home is primed for turnkey enjoyment. This residence comprises 3BD/2.5BA in addition to a family room, living room, and two offices. The relaxing haven is nestled quietly in Samarkand Hills and uniquely captures breathtaking panoramas of the mountains and city. The 2,335 sq-ft home's generous interiors achieve a seamless blend of grace and style, with such touches as wide plank flooring, modern tile work and fixtures, two fireplaces, and an abundance of natural light thanks to glass doors and substantial picture windows at virtually every turn. An inviting ambiance is immediately apparent in the adjoining living room, dining room, and kitchen, which overlook the hedged gardens and mountain panorama and combine to create one of several ideal entertaining venues. The open-plan kitchen particularly epitomizes the home's chic style with its quartz counters, breakfast bar, barn-doored pantry, stainless appliances, and dazzling seaglass-hued backsplash.
Upstairs, the master suite comprises the second floor, where sensational views featuring notable landmarks -- the Granada, Courthouse, Arlington, and Saint Anthony's, to name a few -- provide an inspiring backdrop to this ultra-private vantage point. The most impressive room of them all is a multi-faceted, multi-use entertainment room flawlessly outfitted with a wet bar, dining area, window-seat nook, and expansive family room area -- lending comfort and fluidity for gatherings large and small. Beyond is the private, lush backyard, which is adorned with a variety of fruit trees and romantic flora of salvia, roses, and lavender, in addition to a level lawn and pergola-covered patio -- a perfect arrangement for summer barbecues. The beautifully manicured grounds extend to the front yard as well, with a crisp white fence artfully complementing the home's pristine nature.
Also equipped with a dedicated laundry room, two-car garage, and both an attached and detached office or "Zoom rooms," this home has ample amenities to create a relaxed and inspired life of indulgence at home. But while the property itself is private and serene, its central location and exceptional convenience to the shopping, restaurants, and coffee shops of the De La Vina corridor ensure access to a spirited lifestyle beyond in one of Santa Barbara's most desired neighborhoods.
