CLICK THE PLAY BUTTON ABOVE TO EXPERIENCE THIS PHENOMENAL ESTATE


This 1937 Chester Carjola estate underwent a significant renovation courtesy of Unander Construction and Elizabeth Dinkel Design. Their pairing honors the estate’s classic architecture and fills the home with a sophisticated sense of whimsey. Located between the Upper and Lower Villages yet nestled on a quiet lane, here beautiful spaces and incredible design combine to create the ultimate Montecito escape.

Step inside the foyer for your first introduction to the residence’s deft combination of timeless glamour and easy elegance.

The expansive formal living room pays homage to the home’s origins where the original 1937 paneling still ordains the walls.

Beautiful built-in shelving is perfect for bits and bobs and a handsome fireplace anchors the room.

Beyond the living room, a beautifully paneled den makes for a wonderful study. Incredible original millwork highlights remarkable the craftsmanship of the 1930s. A stately fireplace adds a wonderful ambiance to every occasion and French doors let in fresh garden breezes.

 


 

Privately situated at the end of a long hall, the tranquil master suite is a divine dream. Softly patterned walls and a beautiful tray ceiling cast subtle shads of shadows throughout the space. Large picture windows overlook the grounds and create an incredibly peaceful backdrop. Let the wood-burning fireplace lull you to sleep with the gentle crackling from the logs. Sweet dreams are made of these, indeed.

 
 

The spacious master dressing room is a gorgeous place to get ready for your day. Antiqued mirrors grace the custom cabinets and island. A built-in desk looks to the gardens and is ideal as a makeup table or a smaller, secondary office.

The master bath rivals your favorite spa and lets you delight in everyday indulgences. The gorgeous, full-height slab marble shower is a natural complement to a single slab marble soaking tub. Brass fixtures and finishes are as on-trend today as when the home was originally designed.

Perhaps the most picturesque room in the house, the sunroom, is also the most versatile.

 Overlooking the gardens and opening to the patio, the sunroom is a wonderful playroom, a place for your morning latte, or your go-to spot to catch up on your favorite book.

The dramatic formal dining room is designed for entertaining of all kinds. Grand yet intimate, this space easily hosts large crowds but is equally comfortable for an intimate dinner for two. Beautiful architectural details pair beautifully with crisp white wainscotting and lush textiles. Floor to ceiling picture windows look to the gardens and the fruit trees beyond - perhaps part of the menu was grown on site!

As with every iconic property, the kitchen is the true heart of this home and delicious details abound. Dove gray cabinetry highlights black and white stone floors. Mahogany counters pair beautifully with an oversized marble island.

An incredible tile backsplash dances above a stoic Lacanche range. Dual sinks are perfect for prepping and a wall of wine storage ensures your favorite vintage is never far from hand.

 
 

Everyday dining has never looked so good! Off the kitchen, a darling breakfast room is perfect for casual meals and crucial conversations.

French doors lead to the gardens and give every occasion an al fresco feeling.

Located on the northeastern side of the home, a handsome paneled office is perfect for conference calls or catching up on emails. French doors lead to the gardens and offer a private entrance should you need to meet with clients. The attached full bath makes this space easily transform into the fourth bedroom suite.

Four expansive ensuite bedrooms, two upstairs and two on the main floor (one of which is currently moonlighting as a home office), offer chic accommodations. Each suite looks to a different garden view and features chic, timeless tile in the bath.

 The expansive 2+ acre, mountain view grounds are simply breathtaking.

With nearly every room in the house opening to the outside, the residence’s gardens are a natural extension of the home.

Multiple patios, dining terraces, and outdoor destinations make the grounds ripe for adventures of all kinds.

Aided by a private well, the verdant lawn, prolific fruit trees, and tireless blooms are always a delight.

 
 

A well-appointed guest house is perfect for visitors, loved ones, or an au pair.

Privately located above the two-car garage, the guest house contains a beautiful en suite bedroom as well as a charming living room and kitchen.

This property is a car enthusiast's dream. Two garages offer garage bays for six cars. Whether you have all the spots allocated, are expanding your collection, or simply enjoy the extra storage, this configuration offers endless possibilities.
