Park Lane, Montecito - offered at $28,000,000
Let your eyes gaze past the gardens and grounds, over the green of Montecito, and to the endless sea beyond. Noticeably missing from the view are visual interruptions from other residences and their rooflines. The position of this estate offers supreme privacy and a sublimely bucolic experience.
Park Lane has long been one of Montecito’s most iconic addresses and this estate only confirms its prestige. As you enter through the gates, an ovation of California live oaks welcomes you to the estate and their lacy canopy creates a beautiful escort as you meander towards the residence.
A stone motor court offers an understated introduction to what is truly one of the Central Coast’s most magnificent estates.
White limestone floors ground the space and Venetian plaster walls highlight the interplay of light and shadows. A pair of archways leads you to the living room and a curved stairwell ascends to the private wing of the home.
The formal living room looks to the sea and offers a reason to linger and lounge.
The two-story dining room is a dramatic yet intimate setting for entertaining. Perfect for a crowd but equally comfortable for smaller gatherings, regardless of the occasion, vast mountain views are always on the guest list.
The newly remodeled, ocean view kitchen is the heart of the home. Opening up to the great room and terrace, the kitchen is not only a place to create, it’s a space to connect. White marble counters compliment gorgeous cabinetry and professional appliances. A large walk-in pantry ensures that all of your favorite snacks and staples are at your fingertips.
If you fancy yourself more of a grill master, you can show off your skills outside on the built-in barbecue and pizza oven!
Perfect for casual weeknight meals, practicing piano scales, watching your favorite show, or simply catching up with friends, this gorgeous space is where you’ll naturally find yourself drawn to.
Beamed ceilings, a Santa Barbara stone wall, and steel doors add textural details to the room. Opening southward to the ocean views and northward to the mountain view courtyard, the great room makes the great outdoors an extension of the home.
For those that prefer poolside to be with a cue and a cocktail, the lounge is a great destination that accomplishes both. A well appointed wet bar overlooks both the ocean and west grounds while arched doorways open to the terrace. Ideal for entertaining and year round fun, the lounge is a wonderful addition to the residence.
Whether hosting a charitable event, enjoying an al fresco meal, roasting s’mores in the fireplace, or simply watching the sunset with a loved one, the stone terrace is a go-to destination for all of life’s moments.
Partially covered pergola, with automatic screens, the heated terrace transforms with the seasons and easily accommodates all types of weather.
Beyond the terrace, formal gardens roll gently to the large, flat grounds and a dramatic staircase leads to the lower lawns.
The 3.3 acre property is kept verdant courtesy of a private well.
Throughout the grounds, a number of bucolic destinations offer a reason to roam. Enjoy a picnic amongst the oaks or a rendezvous in the orchard. For those wanting to get a jump on life, check out the in-ground trampoline.
If you prefer the romance of roses or the fragrance of fruit trees, there are plenty of spaces for you to while away the day as well.
The vast ocean and harbor view master suite is a sublime way to begin and end your days. Wake up with the waves and enjoy your morning latte on the private terrace.
At night, wind down by the fireplace and listen to the light wind blowing through the trees.
Dual baths and closets offer privacy and an alcove office is a great reading nook. Gracious and grand, yet warm and welcoming, the master suite exceeds expectations.
Two gracious ensuite bedrooms look south to the sea while a pair of jack-and-jill bedrooms look north to the mountains, all excellent accommodations for guests and loved ones. One of the en suite bedrooms currently lives as an office.
Enjoy taking your conference calls on the upper terrace or finishing up a project while taking in the nightly sunsets for which Montecito is known. Complete with a beautiful bathroom and large walk-in closet, it could easily transition back into a bedroom.
The residence’s lower level is home to a game/family room, large wine cellar, kitchenette and a luxe movie theater.
In addition, a large patio space fills the room with natural light. Extensive storage rooms offer ample space for luggage and seasonal decor.
A one bedroom guest cottage has all of the creature comforts your loved ones could want. In addition to the bedroom and living room, a well appointed kitchenette gives guests a sense of autonomy. Guests can enjoy spending their days gazing at the ocean views or meandering the gardens before transitioning into evenings curled up by the stone fireplace or perhaps a moonlit dip in the nearby pool.
Fantastic as a gym, massage studio, or simply as a reprieve from the sun and pool, the ocean view pool cabana is a go-to destination year round. Helping round out the estate, this one-bedroom + living room cabana offers flexible space that can easily adapt to your needs.
The infinity edge of the pool mirrors the infinite horizon views and from a certain angle, the pool and ocean blend together as one.
Whether you are looking for a full time residence, or a chic holiday home, there is no place more idyllic than this incredible Park Lane estate. With sweeping ocean views, primely located in the Golden Quadrangle and just minutes from the San Ysidro Ranch, Miramar Beach Resort, and the Upper Village, this is what dreams are made of.
