Designed by legendary architect Reginald Johnson, this extensive classic estate, named Monte Mar by the original owners in 1929, commands tranquil ocean views and equally inspiring vistas of its approximately nine acres of impeccably manicured grounds. Introducing the home's exquisite character, an impressive galleria connects private and public spaces with elegance and grandeur, graced with a hand-painted barrel ceiling, ornate crown molding and French doors opening to the ocean-view terrace. The generous formal living room is a powerful space, with a soaring pitched beamed ceiling and... French doors revealing the ocean view. A handsome copper bar complements the space, while French doors providing direct access to the pool courtyard are ideal for entertaining in this magnificent formal living room. The formal dining room encourages the utmost in sophisticated entertaining with a warming fireplace and two sets of double doors providing privacy for gatherings separate the space from the extensive and well-appointed butler's pantry. French doors open the formal dining room to a terrace and the pool. A second set of French doors open to the home's centerpiece, a delightful and sun-filled courtyard, where a hand painted tile fountain and climbing foliage create the most relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere. A great room encompasses the residence's kitchen and family room. Enjoying elaborate design elements, the space boasts rich pine floors and a coffered beamed ceiling. The adjoining family room is warm and inviting, with a grand fireplace graced with an intricate tile motif. A mudroom/staff's quarters with a full bath, and a project space with a built-in desk and storage complete this wing of the home. The home's ample basement is also accessed from this area of the house, providing additional multipurpose space, completed by a half bath and the home's incredible custom wine cellar. Enjoying its own private wing, the master suite is filled with light with an ocean view balcony and French doors leading to a sun-drenched terrace. Enjoying two impressive ensuite bathrooms with walk-in closets, one with a custom-tiled Roman bath, the master suite is a spa-like sanctuary. A separate galleria leads to four bedrooms and deluxe laundry facilities, while two additional guest suites are accessed by the home's central courtyard. Outside, the swimmer's pool is surrounded by vine-covered pergolas, a hedge-lined patio and ample terrace spaces. Exploring the property's stone pathways, citrus and avocado trees and rose-covered trellises lead to a mature, aromatic rose garden. A truly expansive lawn, lined with mature oak trees and towering hedges, rolls gently towards the Pacific Ocean and Channel Islands. Privately set away from the main hacienda, a lavish two-bedroom guest house enjoys views of the Pacific Ocean and the property's immaculate grounds. Beautifully renovated throughout, the guest house enjoys a gourmet kitchen, French doors opening to ocean vistas, a charming fireplace, two luxurious bedroom suites, a patio and ocean view terrace. Above a detached three-car garage, a lovely apartment with ocean views is outfitted as a gym with a private massage room. With an eat-in kitchen and a full bath, the space perfectly doubles as additional guest quarters. With two garages providing covered parking for +/-9 cars and an abundance of uncovered parking, the property is a collector and entertainer's dream. One of Hope Ranch's original homes, this expansive ocean-view estate is truly unique in both amenities and character.
