4595 AVENUE DEL MAR
The sandy beach is your backyard from this beachfront home within the guarded and gated Sandyland Cove enclave in Carpinteria, California.
The beach extends for miles and has been called the “World’s Safest Beach” because of its gentle slope into the ocean and lack of rip tides.
Panoramic ocean, island & coastline views on one side of the home are matched on the other by magnificent views of the Santa Ynez mountains across the vast Salt Marsh Preserve.
Built in 1981 and updated in 2013, this architecturally exciting split-level home centers upon a dramatic living room and dining area with an attractive stone fireplace, high above which are soaring ceilings with exposed natural wood supported by massive beams.
Sun~drenched walls of glass capture the gorgeous ocean views on one side of this bright and airy room, while a wall of glass extending to seamless skylights provides equally compelling mountain and sanctuary views on the other.
The spacious and open kitchen includes an ample island with butcher block top, extensive counter space, newer stainless steel appliances, and a seaside breakfast nook with windows that open to invite in the ocean breezes.
The top floor primary suite with beachside sitting area enjoys sweeping ocean views.
The primary bathroom has beautiful mountain and bird sanctuary views, travertine floors and shower and a soaking tub.
Located on the lower level is a bedroom suite on one side of the home and three bedrooms/one bath on the other side.
Also downstairs is a wonderful recreation room with ping pong table and room for more fun activities.
Other features include a 2 car garage, walk-in pantry, laundry room, reverse osmosis, water softener and central vacuum system and solar water heating panels.
Known to its residents as “Sandyland,” Sandyland Cove is an enclave of 37 beachfront homes in Carpinteria, California.
Approached along a private road that crosses the Carpinteria Salt Marsh, Sandyland’s entrance is closely monitored and grounds patrolled by a full time guard at the gate house.
Sandyland Cove has views of the magnificent Carpinteria Salt Marsh on one side and fabulous ocean and island views on the other.
Because the houses are so far from the freeway and railroad tracks which run along our coast, Sandyland Cove is more peaceful than most of the other beachfront neighborhoods in the Santa Barbara area.
From the homes in Sandyland Cove, the charming town of Carpinteria is a short beach walk away.
Linden Avenue is the main drag through Carpinteria and it has many delights.
