Description

RARE ARCHITECTURAL GEM IN FIRST EVER PUBLIC OFFERING! A WORK OF ART. A MASTON ORIGINAL. This iconic coastal mid-century modern home was designed by renowned architect, CARL MASTON, circa 1956 to take advantage of its ocean views & private 1.3 acre natural setting. It is the personification of ''ONENESS WITH NATURE''. The BAUER HOUSE's timeless appeal includes sleek, clean lines and graphic shapes, a muted color palette and a fusion of indoor and outdoor living through glass wall and picture window designs, virgin redwood paneling & exposed aggregate floors that encourage a sense of flowing connection with nature.

Suppliments: Ocean views beckon from the moment you arrive. Sliding glass doors embrace the spacious main living and dining areas on both the north and south sides, providing abundant light and a sense of continuity with the unique landscape. The spacious, private front entry patio on the north serves as an extension of California outdoor living accented by ocean views through the living room, a reflecting pool and fountain feature. The expansive south-facing patio with its stunning ocean view is graced with the living sculpture of a magnificent, gnarled tree (Ficus pedialaris) that presides over the home like a gentle guardian spirit providing shade and sanctuary. All 3 south-facing bedrooms look out toward ocean views and private grounds. The primary ensuite bedroom is richly accented with walnut paneling and offers double closets and a sliding glass door to a private side patio and garden area. The bedroom/office on the north side overlooks the front patio and reflecting pool. The original 50's vintage kitchen boasts ocean and garden views and features Western Holly double stainless-steel ovens and original cupboards and hardware. A laundry room, three-quarter bathroom and entrance to the 2-car garage extend beyond the kitchen. Visually uninterrupted by any neighboring rooftops and evoking images of Out of Africa, the sprawling garden landscape was designed by the esteemed Southern California landscape architect, Emmet Wemple. Many of the mature and rare plant specimens in this botanical garden were personally chosen and imported from six different continents by the original owner. The property was photographed in 1958 by world-renowned photographer, Julius Shulman, who is considered the most famous modern architecture photographer of the 20th century. Home schematics and renderings by Carl Maston can be found in the USC Archives and Shulman's photos at the Getty Library. Ample onsite parking with 2-car garage and room to expand both the home and/or the garage. Tucked away in its own private world in a highly coveted area of Hope Ranch, this delightful home is only minutes away from a private beach, miles of riding trails, tennis courts, La Cumbre Country Club and Golf Course, as well as Arroyo Burro Beach, the trendy oceanside Boathouse Restaurant & Bar, La Cumbre shopping center and only a 10-minute drive to downtown Santa Barbara and mountain hiking trails. $2643.34 annual association fee.
