This French inspired farmhouse, beautifully built in 2006 and thoughtfully elevated during 2010-11.

871 Oak Grove Drive pairs the light and romance of Provence with incredibly layered gardens and an advanced smart-home automation system.

 
 


As you pass through the entry gates, you are immediately enveloped in a canopy of ancient oaks with sunlight streaming through their leaves and dancing in the gardens. 


Incredible mountain views, a charming patio and a bubbling, natural stone water element greet you at the front portico.  The north patio provides a serene mountain view and overlooks the gardens, designed by the renowned San Ysidro Ranch landscape architect Laurie Lewis, giving a wonderful sense of arrival as you enter the home.

Inside, French limestone floors ground the main level.

Interior rooms mingle fluidly with outdoor spaces to create a true garden lifestyle and a lush backdrop for all types of entertaining.


 The beautiful living room extends effortlessly to the formal dining room anchored by a custom fireplace, a handsome office with built-in bookshelves and wine storage and an outdoor dining area under a custom iron pergola covered in climbing roses.  

 

Start your morning with breakfast on the patio or enjoy magical evenings beside the antique fire-pit with built-in stone seating. 

 

This seamless blend of indoor/outdoor living offers the essence of Montecito lifestyle.


 
 

The thoughtful kitchen, skillfully designed by Will Jameson to accommodate convivial cooking, combines the organization and flow a chef can appreciate, with the comfort and style of easy every day entertaining.  Honed Calacatta marble countertops and graceful radius curves showcase the beauty of the space while dual sinks, a walk-in pantry, professional appliances and a raised dishwasher speak to its function. 


The home’s second level offers four gracious bedrooms including the spacious master suite.  Inside the master, one can easily get lost in the expansive closet or find a quiet moment of contemplation in front of the cozy limestone fireplace. 

Three additional bedrooms are spacious and airy, with beautiful stone and tile baths and large custom closets.


Upstairs, an expansive, 1,100+ sq ft finished attic can flex to fit your needs.  Looking for a theater?  Perhaps you’ve always dreamed of a music studio.  Do you need a space for your yoga practice?  This stunning bonus area is guaranteed to quickly become one of the most used spaces in the house.

Perfectly located in the Golden Quadrangle, 871 Oak Grove seamlessly blends old world charm, cutting-edge technology and an ever-evolving natural environment to create a living experience that is as effortless and timeless as it is sophisticated and innovative.
