Beyond the impressive gate on one of Montecito's most prestigious motorways, a bit of Tuscany awaits. Or, perhaps, a taste of the South of France. It's a magical Mediterranean estate on just under 1 acre of pedigreed land on which stands a spectacular Mediterranean-style home, a beautifully restored and updated turn-of-the-20th-century 2 bedroom, 2 bath guest cottage, and impeccably designed and landscaped Italian gardens. The main residence offers superior craftsmanship and custom features, including doors, windows, cabinetry, hardware and lighting. 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 450 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 bedroom, and the sitting room with its 19th century fireplace, feature hand-distressed black walnut floors. The spa-like bath is embellished with Carrera marble. A 3-car garage and work area are also on the grounds, as are fountains, extensive sandstone walls, and antique and custom plaster and tile. 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.
