There is a magical compound on just under 1 acre of pedigreed land in Montecito, California’s coveted “Golden Quadrangle” of historic and prestigious estates. It consists of a spectacular Mediterranean-style home, impeccably designed and landscaped Italian gardens, and a charming vintage guest cottage. The main residence offers superior craftsmanship, high, groin-vaulted and open beam ceilings combine with windows and French doors throughout the home to bestow a romantic interplay of light, shadow and texture. Tall, manicured hedges border the property, thereby assuring utmost privacy while allowing breathtaking views of Montecito Peak. The kitchen is a gourmet cook’s dream, with French limestone counters, an expansive center island, and top-of-the-line appliances. The culinary center also provides a large breakfast room and a 750-bottle climate-controlled wine room. Two bedroom suites are convenient to the main living areas, and open via French doors to terraces and the grounds. The upper level is reserved for the master suite, whose bedroom and adjoining sitting room comprise approximately 1,000 sq. ft. of relaxed luxury and are complemented by a pair of walk-in closets, a luxurious bath, French doors to a private loggia overlooking the gardens, and offer superb mountain views. The spa-like bath and steam shower are embellished with Carrera marble. This exquisite compound rests within minutes of the community’s “Upper Village,” the renowned San Ysidro Ranch, a popular trail system, schools, services, and world-class beaches. The historic and spacious 2-bedroom, 2-bath San Ysidro Ranch-style, guest cottage, has been lovingly restored and updated. Recently permitted as an “Accessory Dwelling Unit” (ADU), the cottage has its own 2 off-street parking spots and is perfect for visiting guests, adult children or elderly family members desiring proximity to children and grandchildren, yet maintaining one’s own independence.
