"Casual elegance in a tropical setting" best describes this contemporary architectural gem resting on a verdant acre in the Santa Barbara foothills. With a dramatic 25-foot high skylight gracing the foyer, and four patios - all with separate entrances - Villa Vago is designed to bring Santa Barbara’s natural beauty right into the home. Separating the main house and well-appointed guest house is a 40-foot, solar-heated pool complete with waterfall, spa, and plenty of lounge furnishings to create your own private resort. Villa Vago offers complete privacy yet is only minutes away from the beach, the mountains, downtown Santa Barbara and wine country. The clean, contemporary lines of this home combined with the elegant Asian furnishings provide a powerful blend of serenity and comfort.
The 700 square foot master bedroom suite has views of the mountains and lush garden from two private balconies, and includes a king bed and large sitting area with a 60” flat screen television. Two additional bedrooms and a family room in the main house all feature queen beds. The family room -- decorated with a full-wall world map -- has its own backyard patio entrance, a 42” flat screen TV, numerous board games, puzzles, books, and a piano. The private detached guesthouse has another queen bed, a TV and a stereo system with outdoor speakers for the pool and deck area.
The modern, inviting kitchen is well-equipped for gourmet eating with granite counters, Sub-Zero refrigerator, Jura espresso maker and a cupboard full of herbs and spices for your use. Enjoy brunch at the counter or window seat or move to the dining room to eat at the luxe nara wood dining table which seats eight, all while enjoying the sights and sounds of the attached in-ground koi pond and fountain. Just beyond the dining area is the spacious living room with comfortable seating, a fireplace, and another patio. Hidden away on the roof of Villa Vago are 22 solar panels producing clean energy.
The kitchen opens onto a large patio area in the backyard, which features outdoor dining for 16 people, a gas barbeque, two patio heaters, and a ping pong table -- a great place to dine al fresco on those balmy summer evenings. The covered patio at the guesthouse overlooks the pool and boasts an outdoor heated shower, built-in gas heaters and a mini-fridge – providing little reason to leave this slice of paradise.
With 4 bedrooms plus family room and 4.5 baths, Villa Vago accommodates 8 guests in elegance and comfort. There’s no limit to the relaxation and fun you can enjoy at this stunning Santa Barbara sanctuary!
