French Country Charm at the Beach
Padaro Beach Retreat offers guests an escape from the ordinary. Just a short stroll down a private lane to the beach, the lush landscape and quiet surroundings are a welcome respite from everyday life.
In relaxed European style, the home features soaring ceilings, pine floors, exposed brick, fine furnishings, and an inviting ambiance. In this exclusive gated community, where celebrity sightings are not uncommon, gated access opens to the pristine beaches of Padaro Lane. At low tide you can walk the beach through Summerland, Montecito and Santa Barbara. Also within walking distance are great boutiques, a beach grill with plenty of outdoor seating, antique stores, and more.
The entry courtyard is elegant yet welcoming with peaceful sounds emanating from fountains on the circular brick patio. Dining and relaxing on the patio is sunny and soothing, with the scent of lavender and roses to enhance the tranquility. Linger after dark for late night star gazing.
The Living Room centers around the large brick fireplace. A wall of bookshelves offers an extensive collection of books for every literary taste. A baby grand piano graces this room, adding the final elegant touch to this welcoming space.
The Formal Dining Room adjacent to the Living Room offers guests an extraordinary view of the lush front and side yards through paned windows and French doors.
Outside on the side patio adjacent to the Dining Room and Kitchen, there is a gas grill, an outdoor dining table that seats 6 guests as well as a convenient outdoor shower for beachcombers to rinse off.
The Family Room feels equally as elegant as the formal Living Room. A flat screen TV makes this the more relaxed of the two rooms for casual gatherings. Both spaces offer comfortable seating and plenty of natural light.
The country Kitchen is large and bright. A central granite island offers plenty of counter space for preparing any size meal in this well equipped Kitchen. A casual dining table and bar seating invite relaxing mornings and conversation. Professional appliances include Viking stove, dual wall ovens and Miele dishwasher.
The second floor Master Suite with ocean views is spacious and romantic with a pine king-size 4 poster bed. The marble Master Bathroom offers a walk-in shower, 2 sinks and luxurious soaking tub. A lovely sitting area creates a quiet respite to get away from the busy pace of life, or to just gaze out to the blue coastal waters where dolphins often play. For early risers, the sunrise from this gracious space is spectacular.
The two upstairs guest Bedrooms are equal in size and both have queen-size beds, and share the hall bathroom with shower and bathtub.
