Montecito Hacienda
Year Built: 1946

MLS ID: 17-3029

A mood of tranquil abiding suffuses this creekside Montecito hacienda. Resting serenely on nearly 1.5 acres, the over 3,000 sq. ft. main residence and its comfortable guest cottage are surrounded by landscaped gardens and majestic oak, sycamore and magnolia trees. Built in 1946, enjoying major renovation in 2001, and impeccably maintained to this day, the home combines early California charm with modern amenities and designer fixtures. Crisp white walls and vaulted open-beam-and-truss ceilings provide stylish contrast to the terra cotta and wide plank wood floors, hand-painted accent tile, and wrought iron fixtures. French windows and doors ensure a light-filled setting. Nowhere is that ambiance experienced more than in the living room, where two sets of French doors open to a portico, terrace and lovely backyard. A curved and leaded clerestory window adds a touch of refinement. A large fireplace – one of six in the home, garden and guest cottage – stands ready to warm those cool Montecito nights. Nearby, the formal dining room hosts a wide-plank wood floor, French doors to a balcony overlooking a courtyard and fountain, and a Dutch door to the portico. The chef’s kitchen features stainless Viking, Subzero and Miele appliances, abundant cabinetry and a generous skylight. The master suite, guest rooms, and library carry on the air of casual sophistication, as does the tasteful guest cottage, which is a sanctuary worthy of the most discerning visitors. The grounds of this exceptional Montecito estate are truly magical. Multi-level, hosting lush vegetation interspersed with flagstone and river rock steps, paths and walls, and leading to enchanted oases such as the intimate dining area guarded by a somewhat whimsical tile- and glass-studded fireplace and surrounded by ferns and mature trees. All of this is just minutes away from Montecito Union School, the community’s upper and lower villages, world-class beaches, and shopping and dining.
