If you seek a part-time retreat, or a discreet, progressive, one-of-a-kind home for a single person or couple, this property is designed with you in mind.
Located in the heart of historic Santa Barbara’s downtown this is a unique property created by internationally renowned architect Barry Berkus. This architectural award-winning contemporary home is an unparalleled sanctuary. This unique design was constructed on a quiet one-way street in the center of town in 2008 with the young and hip in mind, or the out-of-town owner who visits Santa Barbara for business or pleasure. This is a single-family home, not a condominium, and there is no homeowner’s association. The environment within this architectural gem supports an artful form of life, unique, all within a short walking distance to Santa Barbara’s performing arts district, museums, film and theaters, world-class dining and Santa Barbara’s beautiful Court House.
Functionally, the floor plan has ultimate flexibility. One bedroom, with a den that can easily convert into an office or a second bedroom, two full baths, an open kitchen with stainless steel appliances is the center of activity. This 1000 square foot home is designed in the spirit of a luxury yacht. Floor-to-ceiling cabinetry throughout the house provides ample storage, reached by a custom designed furniture ladder.
Rich in character, this stand-alone single story residence is light and airy, with an open floor plan perfect for entertaining or simply relaxing. A 30′ art wall 14′ high beckons your art collection. The intimate courtyards off the main living space are surrounded by tall bamboo gardens, which provide natural privacy while adding to the overall Zen character that pervades the space. A glass pavilion car arbor has ceiling heat and track lighting and can accommodate two cars, or converts to an entertainment area with a capacity of 30 guests at dining tables.
