10000 Sq Feet
2008 Year built
A lavish Mediterranean estate in Hope Ranch, one of the most exclusive enclaves of Santa Barbara, offers approximately 10,278 square feet in which to reside in privacy and entertain in the grandest fashion. Enjoy one of the world’s most perfect ocean-side climates in a palatial home finished with the most splendid materials. Completed in 2008 with a creative flair and details designed to impress, this stunning property presents the rare chance to make the finest of California living yours.
Massive iron gates and majestic trees frame your arrival to 4170 Mariposa Drive, slowly revealing the long driveway that stretches along the edge of the property and leads to the home’s majestic entry. Numerous sets of French doors beckon the outdoors in, leading from bedrooms to a private garden on the north, and from the main living rooms to an expansive Jerusalem stone entertainment patio on the south. Enjoy the quiet respite from the Arcustone pergola that overlooks the gardens, or stroll past the cascading fountain and down a gracious staircase to the expansive lawn and tennis court below.
A stunning entry with cathedral ceilings and a custom Jarrah wood and brass stairway greets owners and guests in impressive fashion. Intricate wood floors of solid cherry and walnut with inlaid burl accents highlight major living spaces, while walls of windows and 20 foot ceilings flood formal and casual living rooms with light. Formally entertain more than a dozen guests in the elegant dining room with its cozy fireplace and coffered wood ceiling, with the sounds of piano playing from the adjacent music room, or gather casually in the oversized kitchen with its stunning maple and beveled-glass cabinetry and imported Argentinian tile floors. The upstairs master sanctuary is a true owner’s retreat, with intarsia wood and marble accents and separate sleeping, sitting, exercise, office, and private outdoor spaces, while five other generously-sized ensuite bedrooms offer lavish amenities for family or friends.
A place of privacy, privilege, and grandeur, an unincorporated suburb of Santa Barbara, Hope Ranch is one of the most envied places to own a home in the world. The Hope Ranch Park Homes Association (established in 1924) keeps watch over this most elite collection of fabulous estates. Immaculate landscaping blankets the gently rolling hills of the grounds, perched overlooking the Pacific Ocean, with views of the mountains as well. Only about 700 homes exist here, and they sell for millions, sometimes millions upon millions, to those seeking a uniquely idyllic setting for a life of luxury. Owners enjoy a private beach, polo fields, tennis, soccer, and the Hope Ranch Riding Trails Association, which oversees 20-plus miles of trails leading right down to the beach. It’s a paradise of golf, horseback riding, recreation, and fine living. Amid historic palms, Hope Ranch presents the most exclusive of lifestyles.
