It is an energizing retreat perfect as an office, exercise room or yoga studio.
An Oasis of Options
The grounds of this beautifully renovated Montecito compound have been thoughtfully crafted to embellish the property’s existing versatility. The terrace off the family room leads to the rear grounds where an outdoor fireplace, tall hedges for added privacy, palm trees, succulents, and a convenient half-bathroom and outdoor shower surround a sparkling pool. There are thriving vegetable gardens, sprawling lawns, and walking paths meandering through the property and flanked by majestic native oaks. While this remarkable estate emanates a distinct ambiance of solitude and tranquility, it is just moments from Montecito’s villages, world-class beaches and the coveted Montecito Union School.
