Traditional house exterior design and modern interior decorating create beautiful homes that blend old and new. Natural materials and neutral colors are wonderful tools that connect old and new design ideas. Lushome presents a beautiful home in California, envisioned by DesignARC Santa Barbara as a gorgeous retreat blending traditional architectural elements and modern interior design.

The Hope Ranch Estate is a beautiful home with a traditional exterior design. Natural materials, stone walls and wood look great with surrounding landscape. The four-bedroom home occupies a south-facing view lot in Hope Ranch, a suburb of Santa Barbara characterized by narrow winding roads, horse paths and native oak trees. The three-acre grounds are carefully planted with native flora, designed to stitch the grounds and house exterior design into the surrounding landscape.

Its outdoor living spaces are spectacular. The stone patio and outdoor swimming pool overlooking the canyon add chic and charm to the perfect place for relaxation, meditations, exercising or entertaining. Beautiful outdoor living spaces and modern interior design highlight this traditional home built with natural materials.
