A private lane greets you with an ovation of lavender and oak trees. Once through the private gates, an incredible sense of scale and wonder accompanies you along the elegant approach to the main residence. 

As the drive curves gracefully around the southern periphery of the grounds, past the guest house, gently sloping lawns, pool, pool cabana, tennis court, and the rose-lined promenade, all with the dramatic backdrop of the Santa Ynez Mountains, the estate delivers a breathtaking first impression.

Inside the two-story foyer, the sweeping ocean views are first revealed.  The sparkling sea is now on full display and defines the width of the horizon. 

All new wide plank oak floors and crisp white walls compliment the grand volume and perfectly proportioned rooms.  From the foyer, let your eye travel past the terrace, over the pool, beyond the lawns and out to the endless sea.



Beautiful sightlines connect the formal living and dining rooms and create a sense of balance and cohesion between the spaces. The southern exposure comes alive with views of the sea and the pink-moment sunsets Montecito is known for.

The main floor office provides compelling ocean and mountain views and is a wonderful place for work or a simple a respite after a busy day. Crisp white wainscoting, a stately fireplace, and a private ocean view terrace round out the handsome study.

 

The dreamy kitchen, with white marble countertops, professional appliances, and a walk-in pantry, opens to the breakfast room, ocean view terrace and a covered veranda with views of the formal gardens.

The southwesterly corner of the residence is anchored by an impressive family room. Ocean views dominate the space and are balanced by a massive stone fireplace.  French doors and sliding glass walls give this space a beautifully, breezy sense of indoor/outdoor living. 

This space transitions effortlessly from the formal to the every day, to the outside, and every moment in between.

Upstairs, the incredible master suite rivals your favorite five-star resort.  In harmony with both its ocean and mountain views, this incredible space is a true retreat. 

Enjoy cozy nights by the fireplace, late-morning sea breezes coming from the balcony or simply a moment to quietly reflect on life. This space is an ideal way to begin and end your days.  Two oversized closets are perfect for expansive wardrobe, handbag, and shoe collections. 


 
 

The private master bath is awash in Carrera marble and crisp white millwork.  An oversized walk-in shower features dual showerheads, and a lovely soaking tub is beautifully framed by arched windows.  Dual vanities offer fantastic storage options. 

 
 
 

Three gracious en suite bedrooms look to the sea.  Each bedroom has a walk-in closet and its own unique element to set it apart from the rest; a soaking tub, a fireplace, a private terrace.

 
 

The second level is also home to an expansive upstairs family room and exercise studio with a full bath. The family room, with two built-in desks, is a wonderful place for movie night, a pool table, homework sessions or simply to relax. The adjacent exercise studio is perfect for a Pilates reformer or massage table.  On the upstairs northwesterly wing of the residence, lovely au pair accommodations are the comfortable place to house staff. With a private entrance, this en suite bedroom offers autonomy and proximity from the main living areas.

The delightful two-bedroom guest house features a covered veranda, sunny living room with a fireplace, and a full kitchen with a breakfast nook. Located near the main entry and out of sight from the main residence, the guest house could easily be a second residence, office, caretaker’s home or simply a comfortable place for loved ones.

If, as they say, all the world’s a stage, the star players at 710 Picacho are the mountains and the sea.

As one exits your sight, the other slides into view with a refined entrance. Ever present and ever impressive, one of these two powerful forces provides an impressive backdrop for every room in the residence and every inch of the grounds. 


 
 

Outside, 3.5 usable acres unfold with grace and ease. A beautiful pool and cabana provide a focal point to balance the sea and foothills and create a sense of symmetry and order. Take a moonlit dip in the pool.  

Practice your forehand on the north/south facing tennis court.  Enjoy a game of croquet on the lush grounds. The exterior world at 710 Picacho is every bit as gorgeous as the interior living spaces. 

Stroll down the rose-lined promenade on your way to Pierre Lafond and the rest of the shops in the Upper Village. 


In an incredible location, with the area’s most commanding views, Montecito real estate doesn’t get any better.  This remarkably renovated estate offers an effortless, elegant lifestyle.
