The Magnificent Estate


The Magnificent Estate


At approximately 10,000 glorious square feet, the magnificent estate was designed in 2006 by noted architect Don Nulty and acclaimed interior designer Michael S. Smith.

The result of their remarkable pairing is a timeless composition that is at once stately and sophisticated, gracious and grand, meticulous yet effortless. 


 
 

Once inside the galleria, hand-troweled Venetian plaster walls create delicate facets for reflecting light. As the day wanes, and the sun traces its lazy arc across the horizon, shadows dance along the groin-vaulted ceiling and highlight the graceful curves of the perfectly balanced ellipses.

The formal living room is a study in grandeur. A commanding fireplace anchors the room and provides a stately counterpoint to hand-stenciled walls and delicately beaded chandeliers. The beamed ceiling offers a structured balance to the graceful archways of three southerly doors, leading to commanding coastal views.



Just outside three sets of iron French doors, an expansive entertaining terrace, with seating around a beautiful fireplace and lush lawns, offers a front-row seat to experience the uninterrupted views. 

The formal dining room is a dramatic and intimate space for entertaining. Walls come alive through a delicate hand-painted mural and beautiful ceiling moldings crown the room. Privately tucked off the main galleria and opening to an interior courtyard, the dining room offers a reason to linger long after dessert has been served. The serene interior courtyard is home to a beautiful antique fountain and stone fireplace. 

When pocket doors are closed, the kitchen remains private and an independent space for caterers. With two expansive islands, professional appliances, and beautifully painted cabinetry the kitchen is as visually pleasing as it is practical. Beamed ceilings, a stone fireplace, and luxe textiles surround the great room and offer a sense of everyday elegance.

 
 

Perfectly situated between the formal living and dining rooms, an open-concept great room comprises the eat-in kitchen and inviting family room. Walls of French doors access the south facing terrace and allow stunning ocean views and wonderful natural light in.

The main floor master offers a refined sensibility and comfortable spaces. 

As you enter the master wing, an elegant sitting room with a stone fireplace opens to the terrace and enjoys vast ocean views. The bedroom and sitting room feature crown moldings and a delicate ceiling detail. Two ultra-luxurious baths and closets round out the astonishing master retreat—a true sanctuary and exactly what dreams are made of!


 

In addition to the master suite, the main residence features four luxurious guest suites. Positioned on different wings of the home, these suites are wonderfully private and truly lavish, ideal for the most discerning of guests. 

 
 

The two upstairs suites are accessed via private staircases and each offers a kitchenette. Three of the suites feature stone fireplaces and walk-in closets and the fourth offers an expansive sitting room.  All four display gorgeous Moroccan-inspired, hand-made tiles in their respective baths. Perfectly proportioned and elegantly appointed, these suites are jewel-boxes in their own rights. 

On the westerly wing of the residence, off the master suite, a handsome office and library are wonderful retreats within the home. Beamed ceilings with hand-stenciled details are a beautiful counterpoint to walnut floors and rich walnut paneled walls. 

 
 
 
 

French doors lead to resplendent gardens and fill the space with the scent of citrus blossoms and cool sea breezes.

A private staircase on the easterly wing descends to the home’s lower level, where you’ll find an expansive gym, impressive home theater, temperature controlled wine cellar, and extra-large storage area.

With direct access to the lower, 2-car garage as well as a beautiful terrace, these spaces are an integral part of the estate. 


The stunning guest house, located adjacent to the swimming pool, is private from the main house, but not too remote. Built with the same quality and attention to detail as the main residence, the sumptuous accommodations include a spacious living room with a fireplace and kitchen, and a luxurious bedroom with a spacious bathroom, all enjoying the captivating views. 

 
 

Step outside to long, uninterrupted views of the coastline. The exceptional positioning of the residence provides some of the Central Coast’s most magnificent sightlines. Both invigorating and humbling, the awe-inspiring views offer a visual feast to all who experience the magic of the estate.


Presenting a peerless experience, this unequaled estate is sure to remain the pinnacle of what defines Montecito living for generations to come.
