SOLD 4347 Marina Drive - Hope Ranch
The floorplan of the home is built in an “H” design with an atrium front entry courtyard and a back courtyard surrounded by the main living areas of the home. The huge and versatile living room features a characteristic oversize Neff fireplace, Mexican tile floors, and a floor-to-ceiling wall of ocean-view windows. An adjacent room with its own fireplace could serve as the dining room or a den. The kitchen was remodeled in the 1990’s and has granite counters, slate floors, two dishwashers, two sinks, and a subzero refrigerator, double oven and gas cooktop. The master wing features a library/sitting area and a bedroom with a coved fireplace overlooking the pool and encompassing spectacular ocean views. There are four additional bedrooms and four additional baths.
The front yard with its ample motor court was designed by the noted landscape architect Isabelle Greene. The nearly level property rolls gently toward the ocean with a sprawling lawn and mature vegetation creating great privacy on either side of the property. A large pool is located on the ocean side of the home. The property line stops at the blufftop offering over 150 feet of frontage and the bluff to the ocean below is terraced creating a buffer from the erosive wave action. The beach can be accessed by car or foot at the nearby private-gated Hope Ranch beach.
* Neff designed numerous estates for film stars and the well to do in Pasadena, San Marino and Beverly Hills from the 1920’s through 1970, but only three homes in Santa Barbara.
