SOLD: Iconic Montecito Estate Site
I’m celebrating today with the new owners of my absolutely stunning listing: an iconic 88-acre Montecito estate site. The new owners of this prime real estate made a wise decision to purchase the site, perhaps the most impressive and pristine property of its kind remaining on California’s Central Coast. This offering was so extraordinary it was showcased globally on the home page of the acclaimed Sotheby’s International Realty® website.
Don’t worry if you had your heart set on moving to this slice of paradise in Toro Canyon. I have other amazing properties in the area still available. Take this World-Class Toro Canyon Estate, a stunning example of modernism architecture. Perched high in the foothills of the Santa Ynez Mountains and surrounded by the peaceful sylvan setting that is Toro Canyon Park, this incomparable 42 +/- -acre Toro Canyon estate seems a world away yet is mere minutes from all the wonderful amenities of nearby Montecito and Santa Barbara. The over 6000 sq. ft. the main residence, its 2-bedroom guest house, and multi-room cabaña were designed by award-winning architect Andy Neumann, and constructed to exacting detail and with the use of the finest custom materials by master builders and craftspeople.
My recent blog about this beautiful farmhouse situated close-by on approximately 2 acres is a perfect example of chic luxury meets coastal casual. This showcase home includes a pair of detached guest cottages. Set amidst native and tastefully introduced landscaping, the estate takes complete advantage of nature’s bounty. I enjoy the sandstone paths that meander through luxuriant foliage. You’ll find a canopy of palm, oak and eucalyptus trees beside a seasonal creek, with openings to enchanting ocean and island vistas.
Perfect for family life and entertaining, the main residence greets guests with a classic and welcoming front porch, which provides a fitting introduction to the comforts within. We’re talking about a nearly 700 sq. ft. living room, with its wide-plank walnut floor, soaring vaulted and coffered ceiling, and substantial fireplace with floor-to-ceiling stone surround. There’s also a spacious dining area opening to a terrace with several French doors.
The country kitchen includes an expansive and versatile island showcasing a custom Boos butcher block surface with inlaid marble baker’s area, top-of-the-line appliances, granite counter tops, a copper farm sink, and one-of-a-kind topiary relief tile mural with copper pot filler.
Three guest rooms are conveniently located off the main living area, and each opens to a lovely terrace. The upstairs master suite offers utmost privacy and features a soaring open-beam vaulted ceiling and French doors to two private terraces with ocean views.
