Beautiful estate in Goleta, private pool and hot tub, private tennis court and garden
Stay in and spread out. A remarkably simple modus operandi, in a sprawling retreat that’s anything but. That’s because there’s just too much to explore around the grounds of this 4-bedroom, 4-full bathroom estate situated in a secluded spot in the foothills of the Santa Ynez Mountains. Start with a stroll in your on-site citrus orchards and pick a tangerine or two. It will add some zest to the gourmet meal you prepare in the updated, state-of-the-art kitchen. Perhaps cut a few wedges to pop into that drink you’ve just made, before heading to the pool. You’ll be happy to know, you’ll find a hot tub there too. And be sure to save a slice to add to your refreshing, post-match iced tea. Yes, that’s your own private tennis court that you see.
And if you’re looking for a break from the sun or to have a little more fun, just head back inside. You could catch the big game on the flatscreen in the separate pool house that has a convenient full bath. While you’re there, get the woodstove going for a little added warmth. Not a fan of the game? Every guest can carve out a space of their own out on the palatial patio. There, you’ll find an al fresco dining area, outdoor fireplace, plenty of seating and sweeping mountain views to put anybody in a good mood - not to mention the peaceful ambiance of the large estate.
How about challenging someone to a friendly game of pool? You’ll find both a billiards table and a ping pong table in the rec room of the main house, one of three different living areas that grace this large space. Make your way upstairs to yet another sitting area with a fireplace, great for carrying on the conversation in a more quiet, sophisticated setting. And when it’s time to dine, there’s a breakfast nook for four, and a formal dining table that seats eight more.
But at some point, all this activity will warrant some rest. And you will rest well. The master bedroom on the second floor has a beautiful balcony with French doors, and an en-suite bathroom with a soaking tub for those who prefer their relaxation time indoors. Two other bedrooms feature plenty of character and comfortable queens, while the final bedroom houses a full to ensure sweet dreams. And that’s just what you’ll have, when you make your way to The Secret Garden.
