Join us for a tour led by Lori Kari, AIA Architect and Brian Lynch, Contractor
This two story 4,000 square foot home is perched on a 10 acre steep ridgeline with private panoramic views from the mountains behind San Marcos Pass to the north, down to Pt Mugu and across the coastline to UCSB and San Miguel Island to the west. The site has been constricted from the onset with only one very small building pad with a steep hillside behind requiring 12’ retaining walls and steep hillside away from the site in the front and side slopes requiring additional walls and regrading to meet the slope requirements.
The design merges contemporary visual building elements on the main and upper levels while blending the structure with the natural surroundings, just peaking out of the hillside, as experienced when approaching the house.
Features of the house include a 9’x6’ LED back-lit Onyx panel at the wall behind the 10 burner range, a media room with quite sophisticated acoustical elements built into the walls and ceilings, concrete walled wine room, expansive roof decks with custom “invisible” mesh railings which disappear to enhance the panoramic views.
Other features involve green building practices with pv solar to off set the Edison grid, large underground holding tank to house water runoff of the 1,900 square feet of lower roof deck areas for irrigation, a secondary advanced treatment system for the septic that also can be used for irrigation water at the end of the treatment cycle.

We first hired Lynch Construction 7 years ago to remodel part of our old house, and we were very pleased with the result. When we built our new home Lynch was one of several contractors who bid on the project. We decided to go with Lynch again and we are extremely happy with final results. Throughout the project the were very hands on and proactive. The standard of workmanship across the various trades and disciplines was mainly very high. The budgets were provided in detail and there was monthly financial updates. We communicated almost daily and any problems, issues or requests were handled quickly.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Lynch for any construction project either large or small.

We are excited to be among the "'Who's Who" in this independent review of local building and development companies in Santa Barbara. I spoke to Jack Cookson, the owner of this online publication, LA Architects, and Jack said :"we did a comprehensive review of the builders in Santa Barbara before we decided who to include in this article". Well we are thrilled to have made the cut! Thank you Jack!
