“Architecture is art” in this light filled contemporary estate on a private lane in Montectio’s famed Golden Quadrangle. With inspiration from Legorretta and Barragan, the textured stucco walls with golden hues enclose each room like a frame complements a painting. Here is a modern interpretation of traditional Mexican architecture with added design impact in many custom artistic finish details such as lighting, fountains, and a brightly colored galleria mobile. Each room opens to French limestone patios with views of the ocean and foothills as well as color filled fantasy landscaping combining dramatic succulents, grasses and lush walls of bamboo with many gardens by Eric Nagelmann and an extraordinary choice of fixtures, appliances, and materials. Enjoy Montecito’s lifestyle in a way few others will with color, drama, and luxurious comfort while “living in art.”
