Property Description

Resting tranquilly on approximately 2.28 beautifully landscaped acres offering dramatic mountain vistas and glimpses of ocean, this re-imagined Montecito farmhouse compound is an homage to a privileged lifestyle of relaxed luxury. The residence as well as its stylish second residence and versatile pool cabana have been significantly yet tastefully renovated utilizing the finest materials and craftspeople. The result is a blend of 21st century design and amenities with a nod to nostalgia. In the public areas of the main residence, the flow-through floorplan, gently stained hardwood floors, recessed lighting, abundant windows and access to the beautiful grounds create an air of spaciousness and light. Montecito's coveted indoor-outdoor lifestyle is manifest throughout the estate. Thanks to timeless interior and landscape design and its world-class location, this fabulous property provides an opportunity to own an outstanding family compound, entertainer's dream, or private retreat.

Beyond the foyer, the living room evokes a refreshing casual sophistication. The room's substantial fireplace is framed in a mantle and surround providing a touch of classic elegance, and the space opens to a sunroom with its abundance of large windows overlooking the extensive grounds and the ocean beyond a sea of verdant treetops.

Although the culinary center of most homes emits a feeling of high-energy, this re-imagined Montecito farmhouse kitchen seems to rest in serenity and calm abiding. It is so tasteful, in fact, that its visibility from the living room is complementary rather than distracting. There is a touch of Zen here. The centerpiece is an impressive bank of richly stained oversize drawers accented by stainless steel pulls. A pair of custom light fixtures drop from the high ceiling and there is the juxtaposition of stainless appliances set into white cabinetry. Overhead, a skylight illuminates the space in a soft glow. The spacious formal dining room hosts a lovely fireplace, and provides access via French doors to the expansive terrace.

The master suite pampers the most discriminating owners with its fireplace, walk-in closet and farmhouse-inspired bathroom. The bathroom -- luxurious yet enchanting -- features dual sinks with marble surrounds, an inviting freestanding soaking tub, vintage-style designer hardware and light fixtures, and a marble floor and glassed-in shower.

While the guestrooms provide welcome retreats for family and friends, the separate and secluded second residence can serve as a true sanctuary. Under its open-beam cathedral ceiling it hosts a roomy full kitchen, living room area with a handsome fireplace, bedroom with a walk-in closet, and a luxurious bath. French doors open to a charming pergola. Nearby, a versatile pool cabaña has a full bathroom and can be used as an excellent art studio or writing space.

The pool area is surrounded by lush grass, outdoor seating, and a fire pit; making this an ideal gathering spot for friends and family. Nearby, a sizable vegetable garden and a thriving avocado and citrus orchard are now nourished by a recently incorporated well and approximately 5,000-gallon water storage tank. The property also hosts a tennis/pickle ball court with a half-court for basketball and another for bocce ball. In addition, the compound includes a three-car garage with space for a workshop, as well as significant open space for additional parking.

While evoking the tranquility and assuring the privacy of a country estate, this re-imagined Montecito farmhouse compound is conveniently located mere minutes from the prestigious community's Upper Village, Montecito Union School, beaches and other recreational opportunities.
