Babcock Vintner's House
Character abounds in the enchanting 1920s mediterranean home of renowned winemaker Bryan Babcock and his wife Lisa.
It is situated perfectly for exploring the spectacular Santa Barbara Riviera and nearby wine country. From the moment you drive up to the fragrant flower filled exterior and open the door into the arched and tiled foyer, you may believe you're in the South of France.
Adjacent to the dining area is the large, cozy family room with views of the majestic oaks, flower garden, and fountain.
Curl up with a book or watch a movie in this gorgeous room with beamed ceiling and beautiful old world fireplace.
Settle in front of the old world fireplace, central to the inviting, antique filled living room. Open the French doors out to the expansive lawn and gardens, and stay a while.
The warm colored dining room comfortably seats up to ten guests and is conveniently situated next to the gourmet kitchen.
Well equipped, the cheery kitchen with fantastic garden view, features a 6-burner Wolf range with double oven.
Also included, a dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, and stainless refrigerator, as well as accessories for meal preparation and service.
Upstairs, four charming and restful bedrooms await you.
Three of the bedrooms have queen size beds and their own bathrooms. The master, with an en suite bathroom, has a shower, garden view, television, and romantic balcony. Another bedroom, also with balcony, has adjacent bath and view of the rose garden. The third bedroom, with an en suite bathroom and shower, has a beautiful antique bed and a relaxing garden view of the fountain below. Finally, the fourth upstairs room has a double bed, a small sun room perfect for reading, and a small half bath nearby.
Down a stone path, the two story guest cottage's charm is a reflection of the main residence.
The upstairs is bright with high beamed ceilings and is thoughtfully appointed with a queen bed, charming decor, and two sets of French doors leading to a large balcony. There is a full bath upstairs, as well, with a beautiful vintage tiled floor. The first level has a sleeper sofa, desk and kitchenette with a small fridge, sink, coffee maker, microwave and toaster, and a cute table with seating perfect for a morning scone and coffee.
Parking is conveniently available near the home's front door, with room for a vehicle or two back by the guest cottage. If you prefer not to cook, excellent restaurants abound in one of America's most celebrated culinary cities, Santa Barbara.
