$11,880,000 610 Cima Vista Ln, Montecito
Located on a private Montecito lane rests a magnificent Tuscan villa - the coveted 2004 Santa Barbara Showcase House. Situated on nearly 11 lush and private acres, the entire estate boasts mature landscaping and dramatic ocean, mountain, city and harbor views within one of the most elegant and refined Montecito residences.
Through an oak covered archway, a stone and grass driveway opens to a grand motor court and intricate sandstone facade, where a hand-carved antique English oak entry door awaits. Inside, ancient imported Medina stone floors, soaring ceilings and Antequerra Limestone clad walls line the gracious entry. Created for absolute luxury and designed to capture the ocean vistas, the formal living room has been meticulously crafted with hand-finished walls, lyptus wood ceilings and a hand-carved, imported fireplace mantle.
With tall Wainscott paneling and stenciled walls, the formal dining room exudes the utmost in absolute elegance. A butler’s pantry, complete with built-in cappuccino machine and wine refrigerator, connects the dining room with the kitchen, a kitchen office/laundry room with bath, as well as an area created to house an elevator. Limestone countertops and Siematic cabinets fill the delightful kitchen, which is open to a casual dining space and splendid family room offering antique beams and beautiful barrel-vaulted ceilings. Enveloped by windows and doors leading out to the terrace, this “great room” offers beautiful ocean views while delicate rays of sun fill the entire space.
A magnificent corridor connects the kitchen, family, dining and living rooms, ending at a plush suite adorned with cork clad walls and deluxe bath, suitable as a separate guest wing or library. A hand-crafted 200-year-old chestnut oak staircase leads to the upper level, where a gracious hallway connects the master suite, its private sitting room, two bedroom suites and a children’s playroom.
The sumptuous master suite envelops one end of the upper level, designed to capture the remarkable ocean and mountain views while creating a haven for relaxation. The barrel-vaulted ceiling lends to a light and airy feel while french doors open to a private terrace that overlooks the lush Montecito hillside and picturesque Santa Barbara harbor. A deluxe bathroom boasts an inviting soaking tub and large dual shower, while a sitting room or office completes the master suite. The upper level continues to two spacious, mountain view bedroom suites complete with walk-in closets and deluxe baths. The hallway ends at a charming, light filled playroom or study.
A secondary stairway connects the kitchen wing to the lower level of the home, graced by a magnificent temperature-controlled wine cellar enclosed my massive glass and steel doors. An adjacent tasting area with walls of hand-crafted stone sets the stage for intimate dinner parties. A well-equipped media room connects to a conservatory with pool access, surrounded by windows overlooking sprawling lawns and magnificent views.
Outside, an extraordinary outdoor dining pavilion overlooks the sparkling, fully tiled pool and spa, surrounded by lush landscape and offering breathtaking mountain and ocean views. Adjacent to the pool, a stone patio with an outdoor fireplace, grill and dining area offers an ideal place for informal gatherings. A formal rose garden, vegetable garden, vast lawns and wildlife conservation area create the estate’s magnificent, secluded feel.
Beyond the oversized three car garage and detached office, a private and peaceful guest house lies at the north end of the property, secluded from the main house. Surrounded by beautifully manicured gardens, the guest house was designed to evoke a “Santa Ynez Ranch” feel. With doors, floors and ceilings built from reclaimed Chinese teak, a masonry fireplace, custom cedar windows and beautiful infinity tub, this guest residence was built with the same unsurpassed quality and design as the main house. An outdoor Jacuzzi adds the finishing touch to the guest area and this magnificent, Tuscan estate.
