Designed by the famous architect James Morris, who used a combination of geometrically interpreted classical Palladian elements to build what was quoted in the Santa Barbara Book of Architecture as “One of the best houses of traditional design in the area.”
Spectacular two acre property with extraordinary privacy, built to host the grandest of parties, with amazing parking facilities capable to accommodate forty cars. Extreme care has been taken by designers, builders, and architects to create the most eco-friendly lush gardens in Montecito with imported Sicilian orange trees and persimmon trees. This extraordinary Euro-style inspired estate commands 180-degree vistas of breathtaking unobstructed ocean and island views.
For those who have travelled the world over many times, this property is the next best thing to paradise itself. The original owner believed in the ancient art and science of Feng Shui, and everything in the home, including its position, had to reflect a balance of energies to assure the health and good fortune of the people inhabiting it.
The grand four bedroom estate contains an extraordinary master suite with fireplace and en-suite office/library with ocean and mountain views from every room. This ‘dreamworld’ of lustrous marble, dramatic glass walls, volume ceilings, private master suites, marble terraces, view-filled entertainment rooms, and spacious dancing studio bespeaks on a monumental scale an inimitable style of sophistication epitomizing the classic tradition of Santa Barbara.
