Montecito

Perched high upon a hilltop and nestled among lush greenery, this private Mediterranean-style estate offers never-ending panoramic views of the Montecito valley and sweeping ocean vistas. The impressive retreat on approximately 32 beautiful acres inspires serene living at its finest.

Beyond the stately entry gates, a curved cobblestone driveway accented with colorful bougainvillea leads to a European-style courtyard with a four-car garage. The Mediterranean design with curved arched windows and front door continues throughout the home’s interior. Architectural details and quality finishes abound within: coved cathedral ceilings, rustic trussed beams, stone hearths, limestone floors and arched windows set the tone.

The drama begins with a wash of bright white walls and ceilings, the perfect backdrop for the warmth of large wood beams above. Azure skies along with the brilliant blue of the infinity pool draw attention to the magnificent scenery beyond the expansive windows.

Thoughtfully designed to bring the enchanting beauty of Santa Barbara indoors, this elegant coastal residence offers exquisite views from every corner. Natural light floods the approximately 5,738-square-foot home, illuminating each unique and well-appointed room. The estate boasts a high-end chef’s kitchen with breakfast bar, a coved-ceiling dining room that opens to the pool terrace and outdoor pergola, an executive office with rich wood built-ins, four luxurious bedrooms, five spacious bathrooms and a 360-degree sunset lookout from the extraordinary crow’s nest.

In the master bedroom, wake to a spectacular view of sparkling blue waters. Here, the dream becomes reality outside the massive arched glass windows and French doors where the allure of the infinity pool melds into the seaside landscape in the distance.

Visit magnificent Montecito and experience the serenity, privacy and overwhelming beauty of this exceptional property.
