Exquisite Hope Avenue Lane Oasis ...
Resting peacefully in the heart of Santa Barbara, this impeccably crafted and maintained home provides a touch of tranquility just minutes from all the amenities of Santa Barbara’s Upper State Street.

Old World charm is manifest in this 3 bedroom, 2½ bath personal residence of famed artisan & painter Steven Lehner. With custom details such as handmade wrought iron chandeliers and sconces; hand-stained Saltillo tile floors, custom cabinetry and 8’ hand hewn antiqued alder doors; and the powder room’s Venetian plaster. In the living and family rooms, raised-hearth fireplaces, open-beam cathedral ceilings, clerestory windows and oversize glass doors opening to striking landscaping create an ambiance of relaxed sophistication.
Practical yet stylish accoutrements include recessed lighting throughout, premium kitchen appliances, a full-house built-in and centrally-controlled sound system and a spa-style tub and luxurious seamless glassed-in shower in the master bath.
Both the family room and master suite open to a spacious arbor-covered stone patio overlooking lawn and landscaping fit for the most exclusive resort. Dombeya trees, ferns, towering papyrus, eight varieties of ginger, seven dwarf citrus trees and a very private outdoor spa create an exotic oasis.
