Paradiso Del Mare represents a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire over 1 mile of oceanfront bluff, just North of the Bacara Resort Hotel in Santa Barbara County. Covering a span of 68 acres, this oceanfront parcel is permitted for a 7,800 square foot single level home and 800 square foot guesthouse. The house has been designed to respond to the sensitive coastal environment and the rural context with which it is sited, and to sit quietly into the landscape while opening up to the expansive coastal views. The architectural character of the home is based on the simple agrarian structures of the Gaviota coast while incorporating contemporary elements to enhance interior exterior connections between living and entertaining spaces. The transparency of the courtyard styled home allows for simultaneous views to the ocean and to the mountains for sunset evening entertaining. High quality long lasting materials have been selected for their functionality, sustainability and to elevate the level of modern sophistication to the overall aesthetic. Architect, Alan McLeod who has specialized on coastal projects worldwide, based in Santa Barbara, has refined the design of the home to balance all the factors that influence and inform the final building form.
