Old World charm meets modern comforts in this over 4,000 square foot English Country-style manor. The Montecito ocean view home, also offering dramatic mountain vistas, rests on approximately an acre in prestigious Pepper Hill, and is just minutes from the upper and lower villages with their discriminating shopping, dining and beaches. Down a lengthy driveway on a private road, the home is, indeed, a tranquil retreat.
The welcoming foyer overlooks a sunken living room with its 20-foot open-beam cathedral ceiling, one of the home’s 5 fireplaces, and French doors opening to a deck and overlooking the grounds, ocean and islands. Nearby, the family room exudes hospitality and, along with the formal dining room, large kitchen and adjacent breakfast room, is perfect for special occasions with family and friends, or intimate dinners.
In testament to the thoughtful floor plan, the master bedroom is tucked away off the entryway. It hosts a fireplace, walk-in closet, spacious bathroom and French doors leading to a private ocean view deck. A dramatic turreted second floor rotunda and balcony promenade overlook the living room. A second bedroom suite, complemented by two additional ocean view bedrooms and a shared bath, complete the spacious upstairs living area.
Outside, a wonderful outdoor dining and entertainment terrace constructed of native sandstone offers stunning vistas of the Pacific Ocean and Channel Islands. It features a built-in grill and food preparation areas, fireplace, dramatic fountain and controlled lighting. Additional outdoor amenities are a spa, rose garden, a detached, 2-car garage and substantial parking areas.
Located in Montecito’s Cold Springs School District, this Montecito ocean view and mountain vistas home promises comfort, style and nearly endless opportunities for infusion of imagination and creativity.
