1399 School House Rd, SANTA BARBARA

Unique ''Japanese Farmhouse'' with custom tile roof completely gutted and remodeled. Nestled in the heart of Montecito, providing you with exceptional privacy, sits a 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath masterpiece on an acre +/- of lush garden of exotic plants, palms and succulents dissected by numerous winding pathways and expansive pool with custom tile to match the roof. Quality of design and construction was lavished on this home. The upstairs master suite ensures tranquility, while the downstairs and detached studio are perfect for guests and family alike. The kitchen is equipped with superlative appliances and warmed by the richness of custom bamboo cabinetry that makes any gathering a special occasion. The indoor/outdoor transitions take advantage of the unique Montecito climate year-roundAdditional Notes: All surfaces, flooring, hardware and kitchen replaced and the floor plan materially altered. Exotic large lamp fixtures hanging in the main room were custom designed and built in Istanbul, Turkey. Metal driveway gates were designed for the house and to also match the Japanese roof tiles and the entire landscape is beautifully lit at night with various colored LED lights. Central air and heating units new in 2015 and all the plumbing and electrical connections to the street replaced at the same time. Ceilings throughout the house are beautifully scored wood which also is continued in the outside patio overhangs.
