About 2401 S Us Hwy 101

Epic log home estate on +/-360 acres in the beautiful Gaviota area of Santa Barbara, California. The main structures are made of massive, handcrafted western red cedar logs with metal roofing that is developing a designed patina. The main +/-7,000 sq. ft. residence is an open design with emphasis on family and friends gathering. A dramatic entry with dual staircases lead you into a vaulted living room with a massive two-sided river rock fireplace. The generous scale of this finely crafted home continues through the large kitchen, with dual islands and copper edged counters and sinks, the dining room, suited for large gatherings, an inviting den with fireplace and a full bath and a powder room are bookended by a +/-900 sq. ft. vaulted "yoga room" on the south end and a +/-900 sq. ft. garage on the north end. The second floor offers an open mezzanine/sitting area that overlooks the living room and entry and serves two en-suite bedrooms including the master bedroom with a Kiva fireplace and a stunning, Santa Barbara inspired bathroom. The second floor also has a bonus, caretaker suite with a summer kitchen and bath accessed from the exterior of the home. Adding to the nature inspired look are reclaimed Douglas Fir floors on the second level and Idaho quartz floors throughout the first level.

The main residence overlooks a graciously sloping meadow flanked by a +/-994 sq. ft. guest house and a +/-1,920 sq. ft. showplace barn with beautiful dormer windows, which was designed and built with the option to install a second floor, doubling the sq footage and possibly converting it into yet another living space. Behind the main house is a +/-1,000 sq. ft. wine cave dug into the mountain that adds yet another unique and inviting space for family and friends to gather. In addition, a rustic +/-320 sq. ft. pine "cowboy cabin" at the top of the mountain allows for complete solitude with a one-of-a-kind view down the backside of the property with nothing but the stars and the Santa Ynez mountains to keep you company. The property also offers the possibility of an additional residence, offering even more flexibility for the lucky homeowner.

This meticulously handcrafted world-class log home estate overlooks the Nojoqui Falls, the Santa Ynez Mountains, and multiple vineyards, including its own that produces Pinot Noir, Syrah, and Grenache grapes. Nicely sited just four miles from a few world class beaches and surrounded by large undeveloped ranches, including the 20,000 acre La Cruces Ranch on the west boundary. This magnificent property has been featured on Home and Garden Television (HGTV), as well as in Log Home Living Magazine and many other publications.

This estate is both a work of art and an engineering marvel that is perfectly blended with a stellar location that is proximate to the ocean, mountains, world class wineries, and the culture and beauty of the city of Santa Barbara and The Santa Ynez Valley. It's almost too good to be true! MLS #16-2787
