Perched on nearly 3 acres of rock outcroppings above Montecito, and offering panoramic ocean and island views that are nothing short of spectacular, this notable architect's Mid-century Modern residence and its awe-inspiring setting await new stewardship. Originally designed by renowned architect John S. Van Bergen and built as his family’s home, the structure incorporates an abundance of floor-to-ceiling glass in order to take advantage of the breathtaking views.

Curvilinear rooms, such as the expansive terrace room with its wall of large windows, and the more intimate living room with its fireplace focal point, are designed to provide optimum vistas of Montecito below and the ocean beyond. Sunrises and sunsets from the home and separate one-bedroom guest house are divine. Realizing that, Van Bergen named the estate “Wide Horizons”.

Outside , the tasteful landscaping surrounding this architect's Mid-century Modern home features majestic mature oaks and native stone walls and walkways, providing a scenic complement to multi-level terraces and a lovely pool, perfect for a refreshing swim or relaxed contemplation.
