Welcome to 1049 Via Los Padres, located in the exclusive and desirable neighborhood of Park Highlands, in the highly sought after Mountain View School District attendance area.
This elevated parcel is complimented with views of the Pacific Ocean, Channel Islands and the Santa Ynez Mountains. Rarely, do parcels become available in such pristine locations, with fully approved plans available. The property orientation, elevation and setting allows for dramatic sunset pleasures overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Current owners have approved plans, ready to build, with approvals for utilities, geo survey, soil study, archeological report, all necessary studies in hand, etc... The Board of Architectural review has already approved scale, location and mass of house.
The fully approved plans for the property are for a 4,100-square-foot estate, set in a scenic residential neighborhood in Santa Barbara, California. Tim Gorter Architects designed the home as a series of radially connected indoor and outdoor spaces, offering exceptional privacy from the street, while opening up expansive views of the ocean, islands, and idyllic valleys. The building is tucked 7 feet below street level to provide a sense of seclusion at the same time 14 and a half foot vaulted ceilings and clerestory windows flood the interiors with sunlight and lend them a sense of airiness and grandeur.
The design creates a playful spatial experience defined by dynamic volumes and differentiated by changes in materiality. The textured wood ceilings pleasantly counterpose the smoothly finished vaulted open areas. Interstitial spaces like patios, courtyards, pools, and decks stitch together the indoor rooms and expand the living space. The swimming pool is placed on the hillside edge such that the infinity edge floats dramatically in space.
The interior design is anchored by a great room of kitchen, dining, and living that occurs right at the heart of the radial design.
Three building wings spread outwards from that center point containing the primary bedroom suite and office; family room, butler’s pantry, pantry, and powder bath; and guest bedrooms, guest bath, sauna, laundry room, and 3-car garage. Site amenities include a secluded landscaped courtyard; outdoor kitchen; swimming pool, baja shelf, and jacuzzi; private driveway; motor court; fire pit; roof-mounted solar panel array; outdoor shower; fruit trees; vegetable garden; and a rich array of picturesque, biodiverse, and native habitat promoting landscape plantings.
Come take advantage on this unique opportunity to build your own lavish retreat.
