    Description

    With a scenic, peaceful setting on approximately 40 acres and commanding views of the ocean, Channel Islands and city lights, this gated Santa Barbara retreat is the opportunity of a lifetime. Tucked away in a private canyon with hundreds of mature trees, yet located in close proximity to local beaches, world-class shopping and dining, the property is minutes away but worlds apart. Originally conceived as a yoga retreat this incomparable, park-like property has been meticulously refined since the 1940s. Miles of hiking trails wind through the property, which has an approximately 5,000 square foot main building, three apartments, two of which have ocean/island views, seven yurts, six cabins, and has a rare 1952 conditional use permit, nearly unobtainable today, that runs with the land.Experience long-range, 360 degree views of the ocean and surrounding mountainsides from the approximately 1,200 square foot roof top deck on the main building, which has an expansive great room with soaring volume ceilings and skylights, teak floors, three kitchens, a hot tub/sauna, an office, yoga and meeting room. Added features include a laundry room and a Kiva--a unique subterranean meditation room with custom accent lighting. The long-term investment value is also enhanced by the extensive outbuildings, two outdoor double shower houses, backup generator, 220-watt, wired Quonset workshop, and an abundant water source in the San Jose Creek, which enters via a 25' waterfall and exits through a series of deep water swimming pools. Perfect for an artists' colony, corporate retreat, event center, healing-rehab center, a small vineyard or just a private sanctuary for anyone who wants to get away from it all, yet still have easy access to everything Santa Barbara has to offer, including the SB airport, this large, well-conceived property also has +/- 50 mature fruit trees, an herb &vegetable garden, ample parking area at the entry, a 25 gallon per minute (GPM) main well, two 4,000 gallon water storage tanks, an 80 GPM back up well and additional 5,000 gallon storage tank. Whether purchasing as-is and realizing the dream of a lifetime or re-imagining the property to reach new heights, this turnkey retreat is a rare opportunity.
