At the end of a charming lane, this quintessential Montecito ranch home rests on approximately 1.2 acres and encompasses all that the coveted community is known for: privacy, relaxed sophistication, stunning vistas and seamless indoor-outdoor living. The spacious motor court is complemented by impeccable landscaping, with roses, hedges, palms and more. Nearly every room in the home hosts high, open-beam vaulted ceilings and large multi-pane picture windows and French doors opening to views of the mountains or the tastefully landscaped grounds. The flexible single-level floorplan offers spacious secluded bedroom suites and inviting entertaining spaces. The expansive grounds are thoughtfully utilized, and offer a dazzling pool and in-pool spa, dining and entertainment terraces, manicured lawns, fountains and a fire pit. 


A gracious patio provides a welcoming introduction to the home's entry, which opens to an elegant foyer. Through the foyer, the inviting living room provides the perfect place to host family and friends. Dark-stained wide-plank wood floors, a romantic fireplace, open beam vaulted ceiling, a picture window to the front patio, and multiple French doors crowned with clerestory windows create an ambiance of casual luxury. The French doors open to a large terrace overlooking the beautiful grounds and showcasing mountain views.

Across the terrace or through the home's culinary center, an inviting family or media room hosts a sandstone kiva-inspired corner fireplace, rustic vaulted wood ceilings, a cozy breakfast nook and more French doors opening to the terrace. Adjacent to the family room, a den, which could be utilized as an additional bedroom, hosts a closet and a full bathroom with access to the backyard.


The kitchen is truly the heart of the home. Its expansive, open design features a large and versatile center island, top-of-the-line stainless appliances, a large skylight and abundant storage and counter space. It's convenient to the many formal and informal dining spaces on the property. The adjacent family room provides an informal dining area, while a formal dining room is accessed by a pivoting door, is embellished with a delicate chandelier, and has French doors opening to the mountain view terrace, ideal for alfresco dining.


Discretely located and offering bathrooms en suite, plentiful closet space and large windows with views, each bedroom suite is a sanctuary in itself. The master bedroom has vaulted wood ceilings and French doors opening to a private patio with access to the gardens. The luxurious master bathroom includes a soaking tub, dual vanities, a tiled shower and a large walk-in closet. A gorgeous guest suite or second master has windows with views to the mountains and pool area, and a well-appointed bathroom with dual vanity, shower and tub. An additional guest suite, located off of the entry foyer, looks out to the front gardens.


While the interior of this quintessential Montecito ranch home is certainly outstanding, the grounds elevate the property to world-class. Every bit of the exterior area has been considered; from the perfectly trimmed hedges and rose bushes that flank the driveway, to the hidden outdoor shower built into a natural sandstone outcrop. The beautiful glistening pool and spa have a stone coping and are surrounded by emerald lawn. Just below the pool area, an expansive flagstone terrace is sure to be the locale for plenty of dinner parties on warm summer evenings. At the front of the property, a lush mountain view lawn with a fire pit serves as the perfect gathering place to relax and enjoy friends and family into the night. There is an attached 2-car garage as well as multiple open space for guest parking. While the home is private and boasts endless amenities, it is also conveniently located mere minutes to the Upper Village and Montecito Union School.
