Mira Vista is one of the most remarkable estates in Montecito with a stunningly luxurious main residence and several other structures constructed with unprecedented quality. Specifically chosen because of its prestigious site, this significant property which previously belonged to I.G. Waterman, an accomplished musician, has been lovingly restored and redesigned to reflect its rich history. Approach this grand estate through the iron clad gates past a notable gate house, providing a lovely living space for staff or security. Venture up the historic driveway lined with mature palms and perfectly manicured gardens designed by Susan Van Atta. Arrive at an impressive motor court to enter this 5 bedroom, 5 full baths and 3 half baths estate which spans approximately 13,779 square feet of living space with voluminous 16 ft ceilings and numerous glass doors that allow natural light to flood in and illuminate the vintage inspired interiors. Influenced by Dorothy Draper who relished in using vibrant colors, various textures, patterns, and palettes, Mira Vista was built by the current owners to reflect the 1930's style that she was famous for. While unique and creative in design style, this estate architecturally pairs perfectly with the historical tone of Montecito's lush backdrop.
Upon entering through two grand entry doors, a formal foyer greets you with unobstructed views of the emerald lawns and exquisite sitting rooms which are separated by massive paneled lacquered doors.
Located on the east wing of the estate you'll enjoy the large scale and size of these spaces, yet notice that each room gives off its own unique feeling upon entering. The cooler tones of the seating rooms flow seamlessly to the stately formal dining room with a grand fireplace. Adjacent is the chef's kitchen which features a double island, top of the line appliances, a sunny breakfast room and a large Butler pantry. Completing the east wing is a lovely meeting room that leads to two offices and a state of the art home theatre which also serves as a filming facility. Off the grand hallway is a distinguished office with a stone fireplace, and a mailroom with custom built-ins which also functions as a staging room for events at Mira Vista.
The west wing of the estate reveals the gracious master suite with an opulent fireplace, two exceptional master closets with custom lighting and unparalleled details, two luxurious bathrooms, and a large enclosed porch that enjoys views of the estates' gardens. Completing the west wing are three remarkable guest suites each with their own personal touch and style.
Graciously situated just off of the main residence is a 50 ft pool and spa with mosaic tile detail, outdoor shower, and changing room which allows you to experience resort style living. To capture the views of the pacific and the magnificent 28+ acres, have a cocktail in the tower lounge with intimate seating for various gatherings. Host lavish parties across 28+ acres of space and open land, or welcome guests for a weekend staycation in one of the other three homes, two of them dating back to the early 1900's. Enjoy your animals close with a four-stall barn, equipment shed, horse riding ring, and tack room with ½ bath and fireplace. The opportunities at Mira Vista are endless. This one of a kind timeless and generational estate is ready for its next owner.
