This eclectic Montecito contemporary is an artful canvas where large-scale art and design collections can take center stage. The dynamic light-filled home has evolved from an adobe packing shed that was part of a 19th-century lemon orchard. Over the years, the original thick-walled adobe has expanded to an interesting and playful arrangement. The home was again remodeled in 2011 by Barry Berkus, AIA, and Ellen Bildsten, builder, and now offers approximately 5,881 sq. ft. with 4-bedrooms, 4-½ baths, a grand approx. 640 sq. ft. living room with a 12-ft. ceiling, a long gallery hall with walls of glass, a large gourmet kitchen open to the family room, and a bright formal dining room. A large center office opens to an approx. 800 sq. ft. art studio with a 15-ft. steel beamed ceiling, and massive glass sliders that reveal a private salt water pool and hot tub courtyard. The property is located on approx. 1.3 acres and offers sculptured gardens, beautiful mountain views and some ocean views from the expansive roof-top terrace.

The recent two-year renovation reconfigured the unique interior spaces to create a more functional concept. The latest redesign included enlarging the kitchen, adding a large center island with a raised glass breakfast bar, as well as the addition of two more bedrooms, a laundry room, an office, and a new 3-car garage with electric glass doors and a Tesla charging station for an electric vehicle.

The geometrical composition of the home’s façade offers bold and striking design elements with unique sculptures and landscape details. Covered loggia’s and architectural details protrude from the exterior creating a 3-D effect. Columned, tiered steps lead to the glass front door with floor-to-ceiling glass on the adjacent wall with views to the garden and ocean. The main gallery is flanked with floor-to-ceiling windows allowing natural light to showcase stunning art collections within. The serene property is walled and hedged, and located on a cul-de-sac with only five other homes.
