Facing the coastline on a ridge in Montecito, this breathtaking private vineyard estate spans more than 55 rolling acres and enjoys panoramic views of mountains, the Santa Barbara harbor and city lights, the Channel Islands, and the majestic ocean. At the heart of the land is a magnificent Mediterranean-inspired manor, reminiscent of an Italian villa and built in 2010 by renowned area architect Don Nulty. Throughout the roughly 6,000-square-foot interiors, oversized windows, floor-to-ceiling French doors, arched doorways, high ceilings, handsome stone fireplaces, and stylish details combine to create a home filled with delightful spaces, character, and Old World charm. Comfortable and inviting yet impeccably appointed, the eat-in kitchen is an exercise in understated elegance, with countertops of the finest marble and appliances of superior caliber. A dramatic staircase with an ornate iron railing winds upward beside a classical crystal chandelier to the home’s second level. Here, the regal master suite—one of four bedrooms in the home—includes a sitting room with a fireplace and is adjoined by a lavish bath and an office or nursery. Other highlights include a formal dining room, a spacious office, and a three-car garage. The expansive property is tucked below a bluff, with spectacular mountains as a backdrop, creating rare, enviable privacy. The ridgeline location, well above sea level, creates an ideal climate for Grenache and Pinot grapes. The estate’s five-acre vineyards contribute to the highly regarded Paredon wines, making this a particularly unprecedented opportunity for the oenophile or discerning professional.
