The majestic “La Vista” – is a classic Mediterranean estate located on one of the most sought after streets on the Riviera, Paterna Road. Built in 1926 and renovated with tasteful elegance & grace, the property offers panoramic ocean, island as well as Goleta to Carpinteria city views. The multitude of spacious patios and decks take full advantage of the setting and encourage one to sit for awhile and take in all that our beautiful community of Santa Barbara has to offer. This queen of the Riviera is built on three levels and has 5 bedrooms, 3 ½ baths, two fireplaces, a gourmet kitchen, hardwood floors, over-sized rooms, central air, a two car garage and ample off-street parking. Set on a lot over half an acre with rare Riviera usable flat yard space, lush gardens and completed with historic hand-cut stone walls that surround the property. The back yard has a private and naturally beautiful pool, spa, and a terraced area that is just begging to become a bocce ball court! In addition to the main home, there is a 1,000 square foot guest house with its own entrance as well as a separate media room that will likely host many a movie night. While this was a lesson in patience for me as well as for the incredible Buyers, seeing that we went into escrow on this short sale last May, it was well worth the wait! What a great way to end the year and start 2013 with a gorgeous house ready and waiting for your memories, traditions and laughter to fill its rooms and add to the long history of the estate. I am proud to have represented the sale of this home and love that this house has a name, “La Vista”. Happy New Year’s to all!
