Located in the heart of Montecito's Golden Quadrangle, this private and tranquil 1+ acre retreat epitomizes Montecito's ethos of refined yet relaxed living. The 3bed/4 bath main residence seamlessly connects to the outdoors, allowing for optimal enjoyment of the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape (it currently lives as a 1-bedroom house - 2 bedrooms are currently converted into a large closet).Complete with a charming 2 bed/2 bath guest cottage and separate studio with kitchenette and bath , the home's classic California architecture and resplendent interiors offer a laid-back elegance. Tucked within a canopy of oak trees, this private oasis is just minutes from both the Lower and Upper Villages of Montecito, hiking trails, and a mere stone's throw away from the renowned San Ysidro Ranch Resort. Enjoy the solitude of this idyllic property while being just moments away from the vibrant life and all the unprecedented amenities that Montecito has to offer.

The soaring living room exudes grandeur, with vaulted ceilings and exposed trusses, an exquisitely detailed stone fireplace, and large windows and French doors accessing two inviting outdoor terraces one with a trickling fountain and the other, with an outdoor fireplace. Additionally, a Christopher Peacock-designed chef's kitchen boasts hand-crafted cabinetry and top-of-the-line professional appliances. Off the kitchen, you'll find a gracious family room with a beautiful stone fireplace containing a herringbone brick firebox, replete with two sets of French doors leading out to both the front of the home and the backyard. On the other side of the kitchen, there is a spacious dining room with French doors to the front gardens of the home, perfect for hosting formal and informal dinner events.

The primary suite is bathed in natural light, featuring large French doors framing breathtaking views of the backyard and mountains, opening to a private terrace. An expansive en-suite bathroom boasts classic, yet modern finishes, including marble countertops, a freestanding tub, and a walk-in shower with picturesque windows showcasing the natural setting.

Designed by the premier Los Angeles closet designer, Lisa Adams and constructed at a considerable expense, the primary closet spans nearly 500 square feet following a recent conversion of the two guest bedrooms to create an expansive, one-of-a-kind space, meticulously curated to store and showcase one's wardrobe. Rows of custom-built shelving and cabinetry offer a dedicated place for each article of clothing and accessory. This designer closet is the epitome of high style and thoughtful organization though could be easily converted back to the original 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom configuration.

Nestled within the picturesque landscape of the property, a spacious, renovated vintage 2-bedroom guesthouse cottage offers an enchanting and private escape for your guests. The cottage is a harmonious blend of traditional charm and modern luxury. Step inside, and you'll find two well-appointed bedrooms, a large, comfortable living area, and a fully equipped and updated kitchen. Vaulted ceilings add to the open atmosphere, and an original stone fireplace adds a touch of warmth on cooler evenings. As you step outside onto the private back patio, you'll discover a spa surrounded by lush greenery.

Perched above the garage, a detached studio offers additional space for guests or home office and includes a bathroom and small kitchen area. A large floor-to-ceiling window provides an abundance of natural light while framing the picturesque backyard setting. Whether it's a quiet place to work, a cozy hideaway for reading, home gym, or an artist's creative space, this studio provides many options.
