Property Description

Mediterranean Villa, Montecito Upper Village-Newly renovated with inescapable beauty & function this memorable villa on a private lane echoes the Mediterranean countryside and is a short stroll to Upper Village.

A new gourmet kitchen & family room with fireplace offers show-stopping beauty from solid Italian Quartzite surfaces.The enchanting central courtyard with fountain connects the kitchen & formal living room seamlessly. Upstairs the spacious master suite w/view balconies is a romantic sanctuary. Memorable & stunning, prepare to be transported.
