Inspired by architecture from southern European country homes and set amongst vineyards, the sellers built a fabulous 5000 square foot +/- home on 5 view acres in the Meadowlark Ranch area of Santa Ynez Valley. The incomparable views of the surrounding ranches, vineyards and mountain ranges highlight both the entry into the Meadowlark Ranches community, and the property itself, as the views are also featured from nearly every room of the house!
The Entry Foyer opens to dramatic views of the coastal mountain ranges; there is a powder room and coat closet on one side and a fabulous Office on the other. Antique double doors open to the office and there are views to the neighboring vineyards sitting at the office desk!
A beautiful and unique barrel ceiling gallery leads to the bedroom wing on one side; to the other is the kitchen / family rooms and 4th bedroom. Straight ahead is the Living Room / Dining Room / Great Room. Except for the bathrooms and bedrooms a beautiful and rich looking walnut wood floor runs throughout.
Living Room / Dining Room: (42’ 6” x 18’+/-). Two wood pillars and wood beams set off this dramatic room right as one enters the house from the foyer. Four sets of double curved French doors lead to the outside front yard and offer amazing views to the mountains; A fireplace anchors the living room and the large dining area also offers views to the mountains and allows for a large seating capacity if need be for entertaining.
The owner designed the home with a very large Kitchen (22’ x 19’, 10’ x 4’ +/-) and Family Room (17’ x 22’+/-). The kitchen, with granite counters and back splash, offers tremendous storage in high end custom cabinets and a large center island. The island has a sink, cabinets, and a warming oven and a microwave. Featured Kitchen appliances: A 4 burner Wolf oven / range with a pot filling faucet. There is a Sub Zero refrigerator and two Sub Zero refrigerator drawers plus a Miele dishwasher. An intimate breakfast or dining area in a semi bay window is a great design feature. The adjacent Family Room has a cozy sitting area and a fireplace with views through the motor court to a fountain and the neighboring vineyards.
There are four bedrooms in total, all en-suite. The master suite (17.6’ x 20’ +/-) plus two bedrooms are on one side of the house; the fourth is on the kitchen end. All have en-suite bathrooms, generous closets and views!
From the outside covered patio one can look out at the property's small boutique vineyard. It could be expanded or left to make a few cases of your own wine!
