    A stunner situated high on a coastal-view hilltop, this spectacular Montecito estate covers roughly 20 acres and offers panoramic ocean and mountain views as far as the eye can see. With approximately 12,000-square-feet, this Mediterranean home is rich with spaces that are warm and intimate at the same time, and ideal for entertaining. The long front drive arrives at a beautiful courtyard surrounded by lush and colorful landscaping and wrought-iron entry doors welcome visitors into a gracious foyer with travertine floors.  No need to choose a favorite room, as the family room and formal dining room both have fireplaces and breathtaking views. This is a property for a foodie. The impeccable chef ‘s kitchen has a  Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, a six-burner Viking stove with double ovens, three sinks, two dishwashers, a wine refrigerator, separate drinks refrigerator, and a large soapstone center island.

     

    Privately sited on the main level, the master suite is spacious and custom-fitted with his and her walk-in closets, and an inviting bathroom with an air-jet tub and a double-headed steam shower. French doors open from the bedroom to a terrace with a private spa tub and breathtaking coastline views. A spiral staircase ascends to two large guest suites, each with a view balcony. This same staircase also curves down to the lower level to a game room with a full wet bar and an exceptional wine cellar with space for approximately 3,000 bottles. From here, three sets of double doors reveal beautifully landscaped gardens that encircle a fountain, sparkling swimming pool, and spectacular one-bedroom guest house.
