Located a little north of Santa Barbara, the Santa Ynez Valley wine region is the ideal destination for residents of Southern California who want to sample an assortment of fine wines without going up all the way to Napa or Sonoma. Rolling greens hills, gnarled oak trees, and multiple vineyards characterize the serene and peaceful region.
Set on 116 acres in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley wine country, Son Sereno is a modern architectural gem designed by Michael Palladino. The two-story main house has six bedrooms, eight baths, and spectacular views from all angles.
One of the home’s standout design details is a custom curvilinear ceiling. Shaped like a wave and up to 14 feet tall at its highest peak, the ceiling spans the length of the living, dining, and family rooms and ends in motorized clerestory windows that open to let in plenty of natural light.

In addition, French and custom sliding doors open to the outdoors, where a covered patio overlooks a solar-heated saltwater swimming pool in the manicured backyard.To add icing to the cake, oak and sycamore trees surround the estate, and riding trails wind through the grassy hills. Ideal for equestrians, the palatial property has an eight-stall horse barn with a tack room and bathing and grooming station. A separate hay and equipment barn, arena, track, paddocks, irrigated pastures, and a two-bedroom guest house also grace the grounds.
