As if magically transported from the English countryside, this magnificent English Tudor-style home designed by conceptual design illustrator-architect Richard S. Hernaez and constructed by Froscher Lewis, rests on approximately four acres of manicured lawns blanketing one of the most spectacular remaining parcels in Santa Barbara’s prestigious Hope Ranch. Nearing completion, the impressive estate offers its new owner the opportunity to add personal finishing touches to its approximately 8,000 square feet of luxurious living space, and its cabana/guest house with its cathedral ceiling and two full baths.
Entering the home, one is immediately struck by the power of its soaring open beam and truss ceilings, the grand scale of its rooms and the integration of interior and exterior spaces achieved through the use of a seemingly endless display of French doors and Bay windows. Nearly every room offers expansive views of emerald lawns and mature oaks, with the ocean on the horizon in the distance.
From the home’s vast Great Room with its massive timbered ceiling, imposing fireplace and multiple French doors to the poolside veranda, to the culinary center fit for the most demanding chef and ready to accommodate entertaining on a grand scale, this singular estate is at once elegant, inviting and supremely functional.
