A sweeping drive winds up off East Valley Road to a spectacular five acre estate property that offers panoramic views over the entire Santa Barbara coastline. Located beyond the private gated entrance is a cobblestone drive that leads past the stately Guest House and the north-south laying tennis court to the circular motor court. Two lofty specimen palms grace the walled entrance that leads to the inner courtyard and the glass and wrought iron front door beyond. The entry courtyard sets a tone of tranquility through its interpretation of Moorish landscape architecture where tiled water fountains complement the hand chiseled stone pathways and plantings.

The front door opens into an octagonal entry hall with a rich darkly stained beam and coffered ceiling that is flanked by a large powder room and guest coat closet. Immediately ahead is the spectacular living room which features an antique limestone fire surround and handsome parquet patterned floors. An axis is formed that extends out to the magnificent views out to the covered terraces and lawn and landscaped gardens. The western exposure provides expansive views across the entire Montecito Valley and out along the coastline that affords an explosion of color as the sun sets.

Located adjacent to the living room is the formal dining room with herringbone pattern walnut floors and antique fireplace. A private elevator provides access to the lower level wine cellar, and a large separate butler’s pantry is directly accessible to the Dining Room. Further down the wide central hallway tiled in rich dark red tiles that is the north-south axis of the home is the vast kitchen with breakfast area and large family room all open out onto a covered terrace with outdoor fireplace. Unending picturesque views flow in through disappearing pocket doors that lead out to the lawns. The kitchen is outfitted with every state of the art appliance imaginable; a large marble topped central island serves as the hub in this gourmet’s paradise and handsome white cabinetry create a play of light. The breakfast area features stunning views to the south and is equipped with a completely independent galley kitchen that allows for breakfast preparation without need of using the main kitchen. A wrought iron candle chandelier adds wonderful warmth to this room.

Returning down the central hallway past the dining and living rooms one arrives at the walnut paneled library with marble fireplace and a coffered and paneled ceiling. Book shelves, built in cabinetry and walnut herringbone floors encourage one to partake in an afternoon of classic literature. With large double doors that open onto the adjoining Master bedroom, a sublime master suite is immediately achieved. The large square master bedroom is very private with views out across the swimming pool and spa to the Pacific beyond. A carved plaster ceiling and graceful marble fireplace add to the elegance and charm of this room. Pocket sliding doors open out to a private terrace with fireplace. The gentlemen’s bathroom is sheathed in marble and features an oversized shower and separate toilet room. Intimate views are afforded out onto a secluded terraced garden with a drip waterfall feature. The ladies master is bathed in natural light that complements the lovely white marble counters and tub. Separate oversized his/her walk in closets complete this spectacular master suite. Two generous guest bedrooms are also located down the bedroom wing hallway. Both feature private courtyard gardens and limestone baths with inlayed Moroccan tile finishes. The central hallways and guest rooms all feature iron and glass French doors and windows which create a brilliant sense of light and place.

An additional large guest bedroom with en suite bath is located adjacent to the kitchen and enjoys views out onto the tranquil entry courtyard. The service wing of the residence includes a large laundry room with double washer/dryer, an additional powder room and an oversized four-car garage.

Located on the lower level accessed by a classic wrought iron railing and red brick pavers is a spectacular Media Room lined with glass walls that look out to the garden. This magnificent room that is additionally equipped with a full wet bar could become transformed into a billiard room, dance studio or the perfect setting for elegant dinner parties or dances. A separate guest room with en suite bath offers complete privacy with access to the lawn area and stairs to the upper level motor court.

An intimate Pool House is comprised of a living area with fireplace and kitchen amenities that lead out to a raised stone terrace. An adjacent living area is located off one side of the main living room, and a large Dressing Room with steam shower is located on the other side. The classic tiled rectangular swimming pool and spa once again provide a setting of unparalleled ocean and valley vistas.

A two-bedroom Guest House with two full baths and large living room with kitchen offers both a covered veranda and private motor court is located across from the sunken tennis court near the entrance gates.

This spectacular estate compound is the epitome of elegance, sophistication, refinement and grandeur. A home that represents timeless classicism and whose spirit harkens back to the Andalusian and Moroccan influences on the architecture of Montecito in the early 1920s, an era where quality of life and appreciation for beauty was at its apogee. Though grand in proportion and in luxury of space, the home also exudes a sense of warmth, family and belonging. No thought of design or expense was spared to create the impressive atmosphere of quality and timelessness; from the soaring plaster, beam and paneled ceilings (13 feet), parquet and herringbone walnut floors, to the ‘smart’ technology that controls all aspects of home operation, the intimate loggias and covered terraces that encircle the residence all come together to create the ambiance of a grand European estate that will become a home for generations.
