Property Description

A once in a lifetime opportunity and breathtaking views of ocean and mountains greet you upon arrival to this extraordinary, contemporary estate nestled in the hills of Montecito. This 8.24 acre property features quintessential California indoor/outdoor comfort and luxurious Balinese and Asian-influenced design.The entry gate opens to a long, private driveway winding up to the house. As you ascend, lush landscaping displays a diverse array of plants creating a striking environment. At the top of the drive, the expansive estate appears with its exquisite detail to exterior walls and overhangs made from afromosia wood.Torii gates invite you across an expansive koi pond to the front entry where, through a glass wall the heart of this remarkable residence, the Great Room, is seen. With flamed black limestone, distressed oak floors, bamboo ceilings and accents of exotic afromosia wood, the space is warm and impressive. The interior wall finish, replicated from the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, was achieved through a meticulous, hand-crafted process involving six layers of sand and plaster.

The immense, south-facing glass doors slide away, opening to a veranda with a gas fire pit table, dining area and panoramic vista stretching nearly 50 miles along the coastline. The grassy lawn leads to a one of a kind basalt pebble infinity pool that blends seamlessly into the ocean view.

The Great Room flows into a gourmet kitchen, complete with a large family island using Richlite, a unique, eco-friendly material, as its countertop. A built-in Evo Affinity grill, Traulsen refrigerator and freezer, six burner range with two ovens and a separate smart oven complete the professional, quality setting. The clean lines of the custom cabinetry are complemented by the honed basalt countertops that line the perimeter, tying into the stone used throughout the house.

The main corridor of the home stretches east and west. Follow it in either direction to find tremendous light-filled atriums with a suspended ceiling constructed from Petung bamboo. Distinct living quarters on each end of the residence offer both privacy and commanding views of the magnificent landscape. The Master Suite wing, which can be closed off by open-grid sliding doors, is located off one of these spaces.

Two large guest suites with walk-in closets are located off one of these spaces, while on the other side lies the Master Suite wing which can be closed off by open-grid sliding doors. This area includes a secluded den, as well as the master bedroom, oversized bathroom and enormous master dressing room closet.

A cabana including an exercise facility with changing area and shower/steam combination near the pool and a detached office can also be found on the property. There is a guest house comprised of two bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and a great room opening to a full kitchen and private garden.

The property is supported by two water wells and a commercial grade generator which is capable of running the entire estate if electrical power is interrupted.
