Property Details for 4426 Via Bendita, Santa Barbara, CA 93110

Inside the coveted coastal enclave of Hope Ranch lies this stunningly renovated Spanish-style estate - a sanctuary of understated luxury inspired by the architectural undertones of George Washington Smith. While many homes lay claim to noteworthy distinctions, Casa Colibrí (''House of the Hummingbird'') truly stands in a class of its own. Every inch of this estate has been thoughtfully, meticulously, painstakingly reconditioned to restore the home to its authentic roots. The magnificent result is a classically Spanish-style yet thoroughly modern estate, exuding a masterful combination of charm, comfort, architectural detail, and stylistic integrity. The amenities afforded in this impressive 3.25-acre estate check all the boxes and then some: a 7,100+ sq ft. home with private guest quarters, a 3-car garage, a saltwater pool & spa, a lighted tennis court, a horse stable & fully fenced pasture area, a chicken coop, an enclosed garden, a kids' play structure, a bocce court, an ocean view gazebo, and acres of ecologically-conscious landscaping indigenous to California. Hope Ranch association amenities include private gated beach access & picnic areas, private security, and 22 miles of equestrian trails. The adjacent La Cumbre Country Club & Golf Course offers its members and guests virtuality endless opportunities for recreation, community-building, and enjoyment of this historic and perpetually peaceful neighborhood. The expansive home exhibits an alluring blend of intimacy and scale. Six bedrooms - including upper and lower level primary suite options - ensure ample space for family and guests. Indoor & outdoor spaces are seamless extensions of each other, offering a sense of harmony with the surrounding landscape. Exquisite attention to detail is evident at nearly every turn: exposed wood-beamed ceilings, intricate tiled flooring, period-correct oak flooring, inviting fireplaces, iron sconces & metalwork, large windows that welcome abundant natural light, and French doors leading to numerous patios & terraces. Like the beautiful and often-elusive hummingbird, an opportunity of this caliber and quality is bound to fly away just as quickly as it appeared. Experience the luxury of beautiful precision at Casa Colibrí!
