A formal dining room is conveniently positioned off the kitchen, near the living room, and basks in views of the incredible southerly and westerly gardens.
Doric columns between steel windows add a classical element to the space while a modern chandelier seems to float effortless above the room.
Kitchen & Great 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.
