An impressive drive gently escorts you to the dramatic entry. Sophisticated and symmetrical, polished and picturesque, the first glimpse of the estate is a study in sublime architecture.
Newly completed in 2016, this beautiful estate combines elements from Montecito’s golden age with modern comforts, amenities and style.
Step inside the gracious foyer where steel windows complement a beamed ceiling. Grand yet welcoming, this space is a wonderful introduction to the estate’s effortless elegance.
The formal living room is comfortably classic yet distinctively modern. Clean lines complement bleached, wide-plank, varying width, hardwood floors. Crisp white walls accent the beamed ceiling and Moroccan arched doorway. Embracing the Santa Barbara stone fireplace, two sets of steel doors open to the magnificent central courtyard.
The central courtyard, quite literally the heart of the home, is an integral part of the estate’s allure. Steel doors and windows open to three wings of the residence letting gentle breezes and soft sounds from a fountain wander through the home.
A large fireplace is perfect for keeping warm on moonlit nights. Lush palms complement vine covered columns and add subtle a softness to the space. Adorning the back walls, two tile reliefs, original to the estate, provide inspiration for the azul colored accents in the eight-sided star, which surrounds a bronze fountain.
Doric columns between steel windows add a classical element to the space while a modern chandelier seems to float effortless above the room.
The kitchen/great room are designed for how we live today. Open and airy, this multifunctional space is perfect for culinary adventures or easy weeknight dinners. The gorgeous white kitchen is both commanding and calming.
A cozy breakfast area is perfect for meals and snacks. The sitting area allows for a comfortable place to read or watch the evening news.
An oversized marble island compliments the delicate lotus flower backsplash above the range. A beautiful combination of marble and mother of pearl tile, this stunning work of art adds a touch of glamour to the kitchen. Sunlight fills the room to create a cheerful atmosphere while SubZero refrigeration, an 8 burner Wolf range, and dual sinks offer state-of-the-art professional assistance. An oversized island is a wonderful area to stand and work or sit and witness the day unfolding.
Just off of the kitchen, a beautiful office helps you stay organized and coordinate busy schedules. Extensive built-ins present wonderful storage options for papers or tabletop accouterments. To the east, the kitchen opens to the central courtyard. An extension of the home, the courtyard is wonderful for al fresco meals or an evening under the stars. To the west, the kitchen extends to a covered veranda, which looks to the pool and gardens. Another excellent place for outdoor dining, the veranda is an ideal place to take in Montecito’s twilight skies. Rounding out the northeasterly side of the main residence, a well appointed bedroom with an en-suite bath enjoys a private entry. Whether for staff, a private home office, or a place for autonomous guests, this space offers a wonderful versatility to the home.
A main floor media-room offers an outstanding place for movies and entertaining. Bleached wood beams on the ceiling lend an air of levity to the room while a handsome fireplace contributes to a cozy atmosphere on quiet evenings. Blackout blinds provide ideal viewing conditions at all times of the day.
The main floor master bedroom spans the entire northwesterly wing of the home. Beginning with a private office (or an ideal space for a nursery) the lavish master unfolds with incredible grace. Inside the spacious bedroom, a recessed alcove looks to a sitting area that is aglow from the fireplace. French doors open to the central courtyard and gentle babble of the fountain.
Meticulous attention to detail in the master bath results in an extraordinarily extravagant every-day experience. Heather gray cabinetry sits calmly below carrera marble counters. A groin-vault tile ceiling crowns the spacious steam shower. Radiant heat warms the tile floors. A freestanding soaking tub is tucked in a sunny alcove. Additional storage for linens and luxuries means your favorite indulgences are always on hand.
An unprecedented closet redefines wardrobe storage. Chic white millwork, mirrored doors, abundant dresser space, and a jewelry safe transform the room into an atelier’s salon. Whether you’ve been longing for a larger closet or looking for a reason to shop, this space will leave you spellbound.
The estate, first and foremost known for its beauty, deserves equal accolades for its state-of-the-art automation. Controlled by a Creston smart-home system, residents enjoy customized control of music, temperature, lighting, and security systems with the touch of a screen.
Two upstairs bedroom wings offer spacious accommodations for guests and loved ones. The easterly staircase, with traditional Spanish Revival tile risers, ascends to a large, private, en suite bedroom with peeks of the ocean. The westerly staircase, also adorned with Spanish Revival tiles risers, leads to three generous en suite bedrooms.
The southerly bedroom suite looks to the sea and the northerly bedroom suite opens to a large, private patio. Each bath in the trio of suites has its own distinct but complimentary signature. Soft grays and snow whites coalesce in subtle variations in classic herringbone, elongated subway, and hexagon tiles create a dreamy aesthetic in each of the suites.
A beautiful pool, spa, sauna, and cabana are a wonderful place to spend sunny afternoons and leisurely evenings. The gorgeous open-air pavilion is a welcome respite when you need a rest from the sun but still want to be part of the fun.
Beamed ceilings, mosaic tile inserts, and stately Doric columns serve as an extension of the home’s sophisticated aesthetic. The adjacent kitchenette, with SubZero refrigerator and an ice maker, is perfect for poolside snacks, lemonades, and mint juleps.
Conveniently and privately located just outside the main residence, a versatile fitness room is a wonderful place for a gym or yoga studio. Tennis anyone? A regulation-size, north/south facing court is the perfect place to practice your service game.
Nestled between the tennis court and swimming pool, a delightful two-bedroom guest house is the perfect accommodation for extended visitors. Constructed with the same meticulous attention to detail as the main residence, this sunny space enjoys beautiful garden views. Rounding out the estate, two 2-car garages, each accessible from either the easterly or westerly entry gate, are wonderful for auto enthusiasts or extra storage options.
The natural beauty of the estate is unparalleled. Rolling lawns extend to ancient specimen trees past lush, formal gardens, eventually ending with the sparkle of the sea. From playful afternoons in the autumn sun, to starlit dreams on a mid summer’s night, this private oasis is an idyllic backdrop showcasing the best of Montecito’s incredible beauty.
