Property Description

Nestled on well over an acre among some of Montecito's most historic estates and formerly part of the renowned Brundage Estate, this contemporary home, its lovely guest house and exceptional grounds offer privacy, tranquility and gorgeous views. The main residence features dramatic lines and angles and incorporates a wealth of windows and sliding glass doors, thoughtfully situated to capitalize on the stunning grounds and views. A very private pool area -- with an approximately 40-foot pool, an oversize spa and cabana - is the perfect place to relax and host friends and family. The main residence is entered via a charming walkway flanked by vibrant drought-tolerant landscaping and showcasing a stately natural stone fireplace. Through the entry, the gorgeous living room features open-beam vaulted ceilings, a unique sandstone fireplace with oversize hearth, and floor-to-ceiling windows framing the mountains and complementing the striking architectural lines. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, a breakfast bar, and maple floors continuing into the adjacent formal dining area. Sliding glass doors open to a lovely back porch, creating effortless al fresco dining. A sunroom, overlooking the grounds, is ideal for informal dining or as an intimate reading nook. Across the entrance hall, a spacious family or media room includes a built-in wine cabinet and walls of windows and glass, with views of the front landscaping.

While the upstairs hosts the master suite as well as a versatile guest suite, the entry level is home to a third bedroom suite. The master suite features open-beam vaulted ceilings, a stylish fireplace and a luxurious bathroom complete with tumbled marble floors, a shower, emerald tiled bathtub and a spacious walk-in closet. The upstairs guest suite has built in-shelving, a full bath, and two sets of sliding glass doors opening to a mountain-view terrace. The cozy downstairs guest room hosts a bath en suite.

The comfortable guest house is accessed via a private staircase or directly from the main house through a breezeway. It is bathed in natural light thanks to a skylight and abundant windows, and features a spacious living room with wet bar, a bedroom with bath en suite, and mountain views. A garage and large storage room are located below.

Combining lush yet drought-tolerant landscaping, a waterfall feature, expansive lawn area and a pool and spa, the exceptional grounds complete the property and truly create the setting of a private oasis. Car enthusiasts will certainly have their needs fulfilled with a 2-car garage and an additional detached 3-car garage or workshop. Located mere moments from Montecito's Lower Village, beaches, hiking and Cold Spring School, this serene sanctuary is the ultimate place to call home.
