Behind the welcoming wooden gates of 680 Ashley Road lies a curving gravel drive culminating at a 100 year old Craftsman style home. A former farmhouse originally constructed circa 1910, the shingled home is secluded within hedges on a sprawling 2-acre estate with a prolific private water well. The turn-of-the-century home has been lovingly maintained, yet offers modern day amenities. Lofty ceilings and French doors lend a bright aesthetic to the first floor, which houses an expansive living room, dining room, and sizable kitchen with sunny breakfast bar. The second floor gives way to three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a cozy TV room, and a pair of sun-soaked patios with mountain views. An ascending staircase leads to a bonus third floor guest bedroom that doubles as an office or playroom. The parcel is appointed with 4 detached structures: a state-of-the-art media room, an art studio, a meditation hut and wonderful guest house that sits at a quiet corner of the estate. Impeccably landscaped, the property is peppered with flourishing ferns, roses, wisteria, mimosa, magnolia, oak, and olive trees, in addition to a family orchard that offers citrus, pomegranate, plum, and apple trees. Flagstone pathways twist through a pool area, quaint cabana, and bocce ball court. The bountiful grounds are breathtaking!
Tucked away in Montecito, 680 Ashley Rd is a dream property. A secluded parcel, storied hundred-year-old history, immaculately restored furnishings, and flourishing grounds make it the ultimate sanctuary.
