Behind private gates on over 2 impressive acres, this Park Lane oasis assures undeniably dramatic coastal views from the upper reaches of Montecito's Golden Quadrangle. With a minimalist aesthetic and contemporary design the main house, separate guesthouse, and artist studio each stand alone in dramatic contrast to the stunning natural setting. 

Like a solarium, the welcoming main house entry is flooded with light from custom windows and doors. In the sunken living room, new hardwood floors, built-in teak cabinets, fireplace, and wood tongue and groove ceiling are focal points of this bright great room with striking coast and hillside views.

The open kitchen features an Italian Bertazzoni range and stainless appliances. The main living spaces and view terraces offer pristine ocean and island views that stretch for miles along the scenic California coastline.

Floating stairs lead to the master suite which occupies an entire floor of this multi-level floor plan and has a loft-like feel.  An expansive veranda with more unobstructed views is an ideal perch for relaxed days or epic nights of stargazing. The serene master bedroom with panoramic views from corner windows and glass doors opens to the terrace and radiates with Zen-like appeal.  The master bathroom features a sunken tub with hillside views and a walk-in shower.  A second downstairs bedroom suite opens to another private hillside patio and private spa area.

Shady paths and carved stone borders lead to a luxurious terrace flanked by the newly constructed artist studio and separate guesthouse. With European flair for the uncomplicated, each individually curated space has a chic modern vibe.  Exuding simple elegance, the guesthouse offers a sleek kitchenette, wide plank walnut flooring and fireplace. A spa-like bathroom is well-appointed and features Venetian plaster and warm teak accents. 

With avant-garde style, the artist studio is drenched in natural light.  Skylights, soaring ceilings, and disappearing sliding pocket doors allow the stunning landscape and ocean backdrop to permeate the inspirational indoor-outdoor environment. With a full bathroom, the expansive space could effortlessly transform into luxurious guest quarters or a totally cool pool house.

The central patio is anchored by a sparkling 44’ lap pool and built-in spa. The dining terrace with gas heaters, outdoor kitchen, lawn, and fire pit area is ideal for entertaining whether day or night, and provides the essential ingredients for exquisite active indoor-outdoor living. 

Modern architectural elements of steel, glass, cement, and symmetry reside in dramatic contrast and harmony with lush native plants, succulents, mature oaks, colorful grasses, and blooms. Resting high above the Montecito landscape and coastal backdrop, the botanic beauty of this memorable property has been tamed, terraced, and landscaped to perfection.
