Inspired by the Italian countryside and masterfully designed for the California-coastal lifestyle, this extraordinary 8,438-square-foot estate in Summerland, California represents the perfect marriage of modern sophistication and timeless grandeur. Soaring above the Pacific Ocean on over 18 blufftop acres, the immensely private offering, affectionately known as Tuscany Oaks Farm, showcases panoramic views stretching from the Santa Ynez Mountains to the Channel Islands; Santa Barbara to Malibu.
Designed by Don Nulty, AIA, the resplendent property was impeccably conceived for both intimate gatherings and grand-scale entertaining, replete with hand-selected, custom finishes imported from France and Italy. Set behind commanding double gates, a private drive surrounded by mature trees and vast, manicured lawns leads to a stately motor court that sets a dignified tone from the moment of approach. A magnificent entrance galleria reveals sweeping interiors, including formal and informal living and dining rooms elevated by the highest caliber finishes, elegant columns and arch-topped French doors that open to romantic patios and gardens. Highlights include a refined wood-paneled library, French country-style kitchen with exposed wood beams, five voluminous ensuite bedrooms, and a sprawling veranda overlooking the property’s breathtaking amenities and rolling hillsides beyond. An exceptional outdoor entertainment compound flows harmoniously off the great room, featuring a resort-caliber swimming pool, loggia pavilion and a one-bedroom, luxury cabana with a full kitchen and fitness center. The entire residence is 9,503 square feet with an 873-square-foot garage plus additional structures.
A multifaceted estate ideal for equestrian, art and car collectors, Tuscany Oaks features unprecedented amenities set against an awe-inspiring backdrop of the Santa Ynez Mountains—the Pacific Ocean a dazzling panorama in the forefront. The property includes a 10,000-square-foot, 18-stall barn or auto gallery, with an office, two-bedroom apartment, tack room, hot walker, fenced corrals and acre upon acre of laser-leveled pasture primed for polo, grazing or helicopter parking.
Just a heartbeat from the ocean and moments from the world-renowned shopping and dining of Santa Barbara, this magnificent estate offers a rare luxury of space in one of California’s most coveted coastal enclaves. From its sweeping, European-inspired living spaces to its breathtaking grounds, Tuscany Oaks Farm is a masterpiece of beauty, scale and pedigree.
