On top of the world villa overlooks the Gaviota Coast
The recently built Villa Della Costa feels like a private island set high above Santa Barbara’s Gaviota Coast. With vaulted ceilings and oversized windows, the sprawling single-story house takes in the surrounding landscape from every perspective. The ranch-style modern Mediterranean shares its 106-acre perch with a helipad, a guest house and a pool cabana.
