Tour Santa Barbara's "Little Piece of Heaven"

Updated: Apr 22, 2020

Award-winning architectural designer, Xorin Balbes, has done it again with this heart expending restoration in Santa Barbara.

A true work of art, this masterfully renovated 5 bedroom estate with infinite ocean, island, mountain and coastal views will open your heart and truly connect you to your soul.

With unparalleled vision and exemplary craftsmanship, the residence delivers the ultimate lifestyle experience.

The Japanese mid-century modern residence is infused with the tranquil energy of nature and a sophisticated spirit.

The inspired residence transcends you to another realm using materials and fixtures from Germany, Amsterdam and Italy.

Wander the romantic creekside paths, over bridges, past ponds, native boulders, a bamboo forest, citrus trees and succulent, cactus and sculpture gardens to find new inspiration at every turn.

On 2.26 acres, the gated, resort-like compound is completely unique.

Privacy and beauty abound throughout the entire property.

The master suite occupies its own wing of the main residence surrounded by terraces offering endless ocean views, a copper Japanese soaking tub and fire pits for cool evenings al fresco.

Blending artistic vision with practical conveniences, the kitchen is bordered by a wall of glass that opens to a magnificent rock garden and stone terraces. Every room has been thoughtfully envisioned and designed to weave a cohesive story throughout the home - one that is filled with love.

The dramatic living and dining rooms (indoor and outdoor) anchor the center of the residence offering expansive and peaceful views of Santa Barbara.

Completing the main living area of the residence is an ocean-view office, meditation room with en suite bathroom, an 800-bottle temperature-controlled wine room and the ultimate family/media room - with floor to ceiling windows and doors offering views of the magnificent exterior gardens.




Three guest suites occupy their own wing of the house with a separate entrance, each with their own en suite bathroom, sitting area and private garden.

The largest guest suite could easily be a guest house on its own with a living room, wood-burning fireplace and kitchenette.

Two additional guest suites offer vignettes of the gardens and architecture from every window.

Offered at $8,950,000, 365 El Cielito Road is an unparalleled display of architectural pedigree in a completely private and tranquil setting. This exceptional estate embodies the perfect marriage of exemplary craftsmanship and a sophisticated vision.
