The pool area, like the rest of the estate, blends seamlessly with the natural environment, making every swim feel like a dip in a secluded lagoon. In the afternoon, you entertain guests in the dramatic living room, its large windows framing the stunning mountain views, and the décor reflecting the luxurious yet comfortable style of Santa Barbara. The conversation flows easily, accompanied by light refreshments served from your nearby kitchen.

Later, you and your guests move to the media room for an afternoon of entertainment in a more relaxed setting. The state-of-the-art sound system and comfortable seating make movie watching a premier experience. As evening approaches, you prepare dinner in the great room, the chef’s kitchen and dining area providing the perfect setup for a culinary showcase. The meal is a delightful affair, with ingredients picked from your own gardens and enjoyed under the canopy of twilight. Your day concludes with a gentle stroll through the gardens, the landscape lighting casting a soft glow on the paths.
