568 Toro Canyon Rd, Santa Barbara, CA 93108
At a gentle bend in the road, moments from Montecito & near Carpinteria's fabled Padaro Beach, an esoteric farmhouse and barn preside over 10+ acres of pastoral grounds, as they have for over a century. Today the property stands as a hip Santa Barbara hideaway set among lush gardens & ancient specimen trees. Stunning mountain views surround the chic residence, and from certain areas of the grounds, the ocean makes a dramatic cameo. Be it a weekend retreat or a full-time home, this historic property blends old-world sensibility with the best of modern design. A century-old barn is enjoying a remarkable second act as a creative studio offering flexible space for artistic endeavors or an artist in residence. Lush lawns surround the pool & spa while two day-time turnouts are ideal for horses.
