COLD SPRING SCHOOL DISTRICT

One of Montecito's Finest Estates

Sold Furnished

Old-world stonework and stately architecture combine with livable, streamlined design at this world-class estate on five park-like acres in Montecito’s prestigious Golden Quadrangle.

Just beyond the ornate iron entry gates and encompassed by troves of towering oak and sycamore trees, a commanding circular driveway anchors the property. Immediately apparent is this remarkable estate’s grandeur. The striking facade of the 8,000 square-foot main residence embraces starkly traditional architecture, nimbly channeling Byzantine styles of old—trefoil-arched windows, a stone turret entry, and a wraparound koi-pond moat. 

Meanwhile, the interiors showcase a refreshing melange of classic and contemporary elements—crisp walnut and red oak juxtapose with dramatic limestone, marble, and wrought iron—that have been thoughtfully engineered to incorporate the most cutting-edge technological accoutrements. (See details for complete list.) A wealth of windows, French doors, and balconies ushers in scenery of the beautifully landscaped grounds.

The entry level includes a dapper foyer and entry hall, formal dining room, living room, study, wine storage, and detached office; a designer culinary center with imposing island, walk-in pantry, and butler’s pantry; and a master suite equipped with a well-appointed dressing room with his-and-her baths and steam shower. 

Two additional bedroom suites, a butler’s mini bar, a drawing room and a one bedroom with one and a half bathrooms and a full kitchen, comprise the upper level. A detached one bedroom, one and a half bathroom guest house, consisting of approximately 1,000 square feet with a two-car garage and storage room and a deluxe 1BD/1.5BA service apartment with a kitchen and living room, ensure private living space for visitors and on-site staff.

While the interiors of the property deliver relaxed luxury at every corner, the five-acre grounds are an entertainer’s playground, accented by a professional-grade tennis court, a bocce ball court, and a luxurious backyard patio with outdoor kitchen and al fresco dining for 12, a 45ft pool with spa, an air-conditioned cabana with full bath, and a romantic trellised terrace with fireplace. Illuminated flagstone pathways lead to a formal garden and to a bountiful chef’s vegetable and herb garden and citrus orchard. The three-bay garage and motor court are a car collector’s dream. No detail was overlooked to achieve the ultimate standard of living.

The estate, built in 2011 and re-imagined to perfection in 2019 with the creative oversight of a stellar design and architectural team, is offered fully furnished for the lock-and-go buyer yet is an equally versatile canvas for the visionary decorator. This secure and secluded hotel-like estate may seem like a world away but is actually only moments from the energy of Coast Village Road and world-renowned country clubs and beach resorts.
