Nestled on well over an acre among some of Montecito’s most historic estates and formerly part of the renowned Brundage Estate, this contemporary home and exceptional grounds offer privacy, tranquility and views. The main residence features dramatic lines and angles and incorporates a wealth of windows and sliding glass doors, thoughtfully situated to capitalize on the stunning grounds and views. A very private pool area -- with a pool and oversize spa – is the perfect place to relax and host friends and family.

Spaciousness, Light and Breathtaking Views

The residence is entered via a charming walkway flanked by vibrant drought-tolerant landscaping and showcasing a stately fireplace. Through the entry, the gorgeous living room features open-beam vaulted ceilings, a unique fireplace with oversize hearth, and floor-to-ceiling windows framing the mountains and complementing the striking architectural lines. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, a breakfast bar, and maple floors continuing into the adjacent formal dining area. Sliding glass doors open to a lovely back porch, creating effortless al fresco dining. A sunroom, overlooking the grounds, is ideal for informal dining or as an intimate reading nook. Across the entrance hall, a spacious family or media room includes a built-in wine cabinet and walls of windows and glass, with views of the front landscaping.

Restful Retreats for Owners and Guests

The upstairs hosts the master suite as well as a versatile den/office. The master suite features open-beam vaulted ceilings, a stylish fireplace and a luxurious bathroom complete with tumbled marble floors, a shower, emerald tiled bathtub and a spacious walk-in closet. The upstairs den/office suite has built in-shelving, a full bath, and two sets of sliding glass doors opening to a mountain-view terrace. A cozy room with en-suite bath can be utilized as a den or office.

The comfortable attached accessory structure is accessed via a private staircase or directly from the main house through a walkway. It includes a game room, office/study and full bathroom, and is bathed in natural light thanks to a skylight and abundant windows with mountain views. A garage and large storage room are located below.

Luxury and Practicality in a World-class Location.

Combining lush yet drought-tolerant landscaping, a waterfall feature, expansive lawn area and a pool and spa, the exceptional grounds complete the property and truly create the setting of a private oasis. Car enthusiasts will certainly have their needs fulfilled with a 2-car garage and an additional detached 3-car garage or workshop. Located mere moments from Montecito’s Lower Village, beaches, hiking and Cold Spring School, this serene sanctuary is the ultimate place to call home.
