Montecito Mountain View Hacienda
For lease or sale ($3,395,000), this more than 3,000 sq. ft. Montecito mountain view hacienda, resting on almost 1.5 mountain view acres, hosts 4 bedrooms and 4.5 baths. There is also a very private and quite comfortable guest cottage. Surrounding the structures are landscaped gardens and majestic oak, sycamore and magnolia trees. Here is where modern amenities and designer fixtures complement early California charm. Built in 1941, the home and guest cottage underwent major renovation in 2001, and have been impeccably maintained to this day.
Montecito’s coveted indoor-outdoor lifestyle at its best
There are crisp white walls, vaulted open-beam- and-truss ceilings, terra cotta and wide plank wood floors, hand-painted accent tile, and wrought iron fixtures. Abundant natural light is manifest through French windows and doors. In the living room, two sets of French doors open to a portico, terrace and lovely backyard, and a leaded bow clerestory window adds a touch of sophistication. A large fireplace – one of six in the home, garden and guest cottage – is guaranteed to warm cool Montecito nights.
The formal dining room features a wide-plank wood floor, a Dutch door to the portico, and French doors to a balcony overlooking a courtyard fountain. Nearby, the gourmet kitchen provides stainless Viking, Subzero and Miele appliances, abundant cabinetry and a generous skylight. The master suite, guest rooms, and library emanate relaxed sophistication, and the charming guest cottage is a tranquil oasis worthy of the most discerning visitors.
A touch of whimsy. A serving of serenity.
Magical are the grounds of this singular Montecito mountain view estate. The multi-level property is ripe with lush vegetation mingling with flagstone and river rock steps, paths and walls. The walkways lead to enchanted nooks such as the intimate dining area guarded by a whimsical tile- and glass-studded fireplace and surrounded by ferns and mature trees.
