Classical Style Meets California Comfort
Amid towering oaks and sweeping lawn on 3.4 acres in Montecito, this classically inspired manor shows equal appreciation for history, modernity, sophistication, and comfort.
In addition to a stately home, it encompasses a two-bedroom guesthouse with a kitchenette, an 800-square-foot pool cabana with a full kitchen and a bedroom, all with the majestic mountains serving as a dramatic backdrop.
The main residence accommodates both the formal and informal under one roof. Its refined living room features a fireplace, crystal chandeliers, classical crown moldings, and French doors.
A unique piano bar with built-in bookshelves, an entertainment center, a fireplace, and a wine refrigerator makes festive entertaining easy.
The formal dining room opens to a covered patio with views of the ocean, koi pond, and gardens.
A comfortable early American charm blends with superior-caliber appliances in the gourmet kitchen, which is anchored by a Calacatta marble-topped island and includes a welcoming breakfast nook.
French doors open to a stunning loggia warmed by an oversized fireplace.
The family room has a light and airy feel, with an inviting bay window seat, a grand fireplace, and doors to a sunny deck.
Bright and airy, the master suite encompasses two spa-like baths and a room-sized closet suite and dressing area.
Other highlights include an expertly equipped home gym, a light-filled library, a home theater with stadium seating, multiple quiet office spaces, a wine cellar, and a commercial-caliber catering kitchen.
The home also offers more than 2,000 square feet of breezy decks and patios, both shady and sunny—one stretching nearly the entire length of the home and offering multiple spots for relaxing and lounging.
The estate is an elegant playground, designed for activity and enjoyment indoors and out.
The expansive green lawn invites frolicking and relaxed recreation, as does the championship tennis court, which includes two viewing pergolas and a spacious equipment-storage room.
The grounds also feature tall trees, a koi pond, thriving rose gardens with a classical sundial, a peaceful reflecting pool, and views of the calming ocean waters.
