CLEVERLY DESIGNED


CLEVERLY DESIGNED


Once inside, the estate’s true star comes center stage. Staggering ocean views greet you at the entry door and invite the eye on a long exploration of the California coastline.


The living room’s south and west facades are defined by 14’ glass doors and windows that lead to an expansive poolside terrace.  Cleverly designed, the living room welcomes natural light to pour from three directions and serves as an incredible backdrop for most any occasion. 

Adjacent to the living room, the formal dining room overlooks the sea and opens to the expansive terrace. Wonderful for indoor/outdoor entertaining, this space is as perfectly poised for formal events as it is for impromptu BBQs. Previously used as a home office, the flexible space easily transforms to a private workspace.

The grand galleria joins the entry to the great room. Geometric lines offer a structured counterpoint to gracefully curved walls. Here the marriage of form and function has never looked so good.

A spectacular eat-in kitchen with coastal views is defined by its massive center island. Two slabs of book-matched marble create a dramatic backbone for the space. Kinetic white veins run through the stoic black stone and give palpable energy to the room. Glossy white cabinets, Carerra counters, professional appliances and dual stainless steel sinks round out the chic, monochromatic palette. This kitchen, with its layout, amenities, and sweeping views is a dream come true.

Positioned with an effortless sense of levity, the room appears to both be perched among the palms and afloat amidst the waves. 


A second patio offers a respite for those who prefer the sight of the majestic foothills. The cozy sitting area is ideal for reading, catching up on e-mails or watching an episode of your favorite new show. Heated floors, a freestanding soaking tub, and a private, ocean view terrace give the bath a tranquil, resort-like quality while dual sinks and two oversized closets offer a practical everyday sense of luxury.

 
 

Also upstairs, 3 large bedroom suites offer lavish accommodations. The first features a private patio, built-in desk, large sitting area, walk-in closet and a beautiful bathroom. The second suite overlooks the serene wooded landscape and offers peeks of the mountains.

Outside, the heart of the estate is the ocean view terrace and dramatic infinity pool. As an extension of the home, the space beacons morning laps in the pool, afternoon sun salutations on the terrace, al fresco evening meals around the fire and late night hot tubs under the moonlight. 


Adjacent to the terrace, a wonderful pool cabana is perfect for an ocean view gym, a home office, or simply your favorite recreation.

Opportunities abound to uncover natural delights throughout the approx. 1.5 acres. Ancient California Live Oaks cast lacy shadows on hidden pathways and primal boulders. Positioned in an A+ location and pushing the boundaries of contemporary design, this enviable estate captures the balance between strong geometric lines and soft, fluid curves while all the while celebrating the beauty of Montecito’s natural surrounding and stunning views.
