Description

Organically rising from the very land it sits upon, this original adobe has been restored to perfection and expanded under the meticulous eye of a renowned artist. Privately situated close to town, this home, the first built on the Lane, has ''front row'' ocean views and a spectacular sunset orientation. Ideal for an artist or musician, this home also lends itself to a compound style of living. This idyllic adobe plus award winning sustainable addition was carefully designed to blend into the land utilizing tiers of stone walls and stone clad levels staying true to the organic nature of the adobe. Both the original adobe and the addition were designed to maximize energy efficiency. Inside and out the property abounds with authentic hacienda detailing and artistic fancies. Behind the unassuming facade and through the antique gate of the main level Mexican tile courtyard lies a botanic garden of surprises inside and out. In 2004 when the owners sought to add an artist studio and apartment for their parents, they tripled the size of the home to over 6000 sq. ft., creating a seamless addition to the original adobe. The property was the Winner of the TSP Greenbuilding Award for best Sustainable Project 2004; solar powered, sited to take advantage of sun's path, natural lighting, passive ventilation and radiant floor heating. The addition includes an expansion of the adobe and the addition of a stunning two-story high atrium style studio accessed down a center staircase to allow one the feeling of immersion with the displayed art on the massive wall space. The magnificently beamed ceilings echo the adobe's living room ceiling with custom lighting by TECH lighting and radiant floor heating. This versatile space includes a loft, a full bath with walk-in shower, storage area, work space, and exhibition space. One side of the studio has a palatial nanodoor to access the sweeping view patio looking over serene garden and canyon views as well as direct sunset/ocean views. Materials from the adobe were recycled into elements of the addition, such as the sliding barn doors that protect the nanodoor which are made of recycled redwood heartwood from an old aviary on site. The mass of the addition does not overwhelm the original home as the architect integrated the addition into the slope and used the natural sandstone quarried from the site forming a plinth that wraps around the upper patio and lower portion of the building. Another staircase descends to a spacious lower level apartment that is its own retreat. The easily accessible apartment has its own driveway, a single level open floor plan that opens with French doors all around to a trellis covered pergola overlooking the canyon and ocean views, two full bathrooms with walk-in showers, a walk-in closet off the bedroom and a fireplace. There is a beautiful kitchen with granite countertops, and the apartment has its own laundry in a utility room. As incredible as the home is you will spend most of your time outside in one of the many niches or spacious terraces. The adobe features a characteristic Mexican tiled courtyard oozing with charm and including a fireplace, fountain, built-in barbeque, niches for reading and resting and an oak tree covered deck. Wander down to the studio patio with its 300 degree views or enjoy the shade of the trellis-covered lower level veranda. The magnificently curated garden is dotted with secret sheds, workshops and paths planted with diverse and lush native plantings including succulents, grape vines, cacti, rosemary, lavender, Pride of Madeira and many fruit trees. Wander around the property and find artfully placed seating and al fresco eating and entertaining areas. The property has been featured in numerous magazines including Home & Living Trends & Santa Barbara Seasons Magazine. There are too many details to list but include wood beamed ceilings, 5 fireplaces, primary bedroom suite with its own sitting area warmed by a fireplace, walk-in California cl
