This classic Birnam Wood home represents a quintessential relaxed luxury that epitomizes the Montecito, California lifestyle. That lifestyle is manifest in this singular nearly 6,000 square foot residence. It rests on close to three-quarters of an acre at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac and adjacent to the 11th green of the prestigious Birnam Wood Golf Club. Surrounded by sprawling lawn, lovely gardens and majestic trees, the home is imbued with an ambiance of subdued sophistication.

Where Casual Comfort Meets Cosmopolitan Class

Impressive front doors flanked by panes of leaded glass introduce the riches within the home. Their opening reveals a dramatic foyer with highly-polished inlaid stone floor. Two sets of Tuscan columns carry one’s eye through to the living room, with its salon parquet floor, tray ceiling, fireplace with stone mantel, and French doors to the rear patio and gardens.

Nearby, the elegant formal dining room also features a parquet floor, tray ceiling and French doors to the setting for an alfresco repast. The room’s fireplace is of carved wood and adds a distinctly European sensibility.

A sanctuary for refreshing relaxation

There is a feeling of expansiveness manifested in the Great Room of this classic Birnam Wood home, where kitchen and family room unite. While the kitchen features abundant cabinetry, a large and versatile center island and high-end appliances, the family room – with its soaring cathedral ceiling and sets of French doors to the grounds — offers a warming fireplace flanked by a built-in entertainment center.

Two wonderful master bedroom suites grace this exceptional home, and an intimate study hosts its own fireplace as well as floor-to-ceiling bookcases.

The pleasures of place

While what is within a home is important, what is without defines its place. This classic Birnam Wood home -- surrounded by lawns, mature trees, a charming rose garden and private golf course -- claims a very special place, indeed. Beyond its immediate surroundings are stunning mountain views and convenience to world-class amenities such as Montecito’s Upper Village shops and dining, spectacular beaches and award-winning schools.
