Rife with the charm of a Hamptons beach house, yet tucked away in the foothills of Montecito, this breathtaking estate is the epitome of the ideal family retreat. Beautifully merging an East Coast aesthetic, with a casual, quintessential California feel, the property evokes an idyllic storybook appeal, perched atop two acres of prime southwest facing land and set against a backdrop of ocean, island and mountain views.
Designed by famed local architect Don Nulty and constructed in 2008, this legacy estate takes cues from the classic Cape Cod style of Robert Stern. Solid wood entry gates reveal a cobblestone drive and circular motor court leading to an expansive, beautifully shingled abode, supported with stately columns and finished with a slate roof. Step into the foyer of the 12,000 square foot masterpiece with complex craftsmanship and you’ll be greeted with a gently curved staircase, walnut herringbone flooring and softly arched entryway. The sun-soaked living room gives way to a stately dining room large enough for multi-generational celebrations. French doors open onto a flagstone patio. The heart of the home, a sizable kitchen with coffered ceilings and exquisite Carrera marble countertops, leads to a sunny octagonal breakfast nook and adjacent family room replete with stackstone fireplace and built-in entertainment center.
Beyond the French doors of the main house, the lush, fertile landscape hosts an expansive and well-appointed detached guest house, perfect for visiting friends and relatives. The backyard offers a wrap-around flagstone patio, two fireplaces, and two barbecue areas for large family gatherings. Expansive green lawns give way to fragrant rose gardens, native shrubbery, and boulders leading to a 65-foot saline swimming pool, spa, pool house, and changing cabana with stunning views of the Santa Barbara Harbor and beyond.
Nature abounds amid a secluded seasonal creek, and native, drought-resistant foliage. A wonderland dotted with huge log bridges, handcrafted ash benches, a secret tree fort, hillside orchard, and pristine landscaping are maintained by a private well producing 23-gallons per minute with an 8000 gallon storage tank. This ideal family compound also incorporates a 7-hole putting green and sports court equipped for paddle tennis, badminton, volleyball and full-court basketball.
This enchanted property is unrivaled, beautifully merging the magic of Montecito with classic East Coast charm to create the perfect home for generations to come. Blending 20th century craftsmanship with 21st century amenities for those who seek the best of both worlds. The perfect estate for creating special memories.
