$14,500,000 New Mediterranean Villa
A seemingly endless hedge-lined, oak-shaded, estate driveway, introduces this approximately 12,000 square-foot, new Mediterranean home on approx 3 luscious acres in the heart of Montecito. The meandering drive arrives at a gracious motor court and courtyard that compliment the home’s Mediterranean aesthetic.
Inside, immense windows pervade every room, immersing the home in sunlight. Its sky-high ceilings, omnipresent fireplaces, stone or custom-laid oak floors, and hand-crafted fixtures provide potential beyond imagination for its broad rooms and living spaces. A gallery skims the main living spaces, keeping the living and dining rooms immediately open and welcoming. These rooms boast romantic details, including hand-carved beamed ceilings and, like every main floor room, oversized double doors onto the home’s ubiquitous loggia. A mahogany-clad library provides elegant built-in shelving and a fireplace to warm the cozy space.
The dining room accesses the kitchen through a beautiful butler’s pantry. The kitchen presents two center islands and encircling counters of Calcutta Gold marble slabs, while custom sinks and hardware, and camouflaged state-of-the-art appliances provide the best of contemporary amenities. The kitchen opens to an exceptional family room with outstanding natural light.
Three separate staircases throughout the home reach the lower and upper floors. The bottom floor offers a home theater room with stadium-style seating, a wet bar, and three additional rooms ideal for recreational space—suitable for a home gym, game room and a wine cellar as well as a full bath and a powder room.
Five bedroom suites span the top floor—three of them with ocean views--including the stunning master suite. With tremendous proportions, the master bedroom presents a sense of grandeur without sacrificing warmth. A sitting room, luxuriously large walk-in closets, and separate his-and-hers bathrooms offering the utmost opulent amenities complete the exceptional space. Three outstandingly spacious bedroom suites enjoy walk-in closets and plush bathrooms of their own. An additional, deluxe guest suite with a private entrance offers similar amenities with a kitchenette set-up.
Back on the main floor, the loggia spans the south side of the house, enjoying the views over the property’s manicured lawns and gardens. A step out onto the estate’s grounds reveals the thick, oak tree forest that envelops the property. The loggia turns into a pair of walkways that weave through an enchanting rose garden, landing at the pool and entertaining area below.
On the other end of the pool sits a private pool house, complete with a living room, kitchenette, one bedroom, and two full bathrooms for optimal privacy. The pool house enjoys exquisite luxuries including two fireplaces.
With an exquisite arrangement of elegant features, rich spaces, and a magnificent landscape, this brand new Montecito property captures the very essence of the luxurious California lifestyle.
