Listed by Sotheby’s is an inspiring 6-bedroom Italian villa with panoramic views of the ocean, Island and mountain in Montecito, California. A 2-bedroom guesthouse as well as an outdoor swimming pool and beautiful gardens are part of the $ 6,295,000 complex.
The main house comprises a first-floor master suite, extensive terraces, en-suit bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, cosy library, a private wine cellar, a sun-filled family room and a large covered loggia with a built-in fireplace. The large garage has the capacity to fit four vehicles.
Furnished to excellent standards of warm Mediterranean hospitality with a touch of contemporary minimalism, the interior of the villa is flooded with natural light, which works well with the natural wooden surfaces and floor-to-ceiling windows. Venetian plaster walls, a handsome limestone fireplace, coffered wood ceiling, travertine floors and a wall of glass seamlessly bring views of the terrace, gardens, and ocean indoors.
The master suite is located in its individual wing of the home with beautiful ocean views across the private stone terrace. Guests can enjoy a fireplace and double walk-in closets that add to the generous space. The luxurious en-suite bathroom is fitted with two Onyx vanities, a claw-foot tub and a marble shower. Also adjacent to the master suite is an alder wood-panelled library, complete with mahogany floors and mountain views.
There are five additional guest suites, each with individual private baths. Most rooms have private terraces, patios or balconies with panoramic views of the surrounding scenery.
The main residence sits across a spacious two-bedroom, two-bath guesthouse with an outdoor terrace. It is furnished in a style similar to the villa with a stone fireplace, wood coffered ceilings, custom cabinetry, travertine floors, and tumbled marble and granite accents. An outdoor swimming pool and a gentlemen’s lounge area are amongst the additional features of the spectacular property.
