Immerse yourself in epic ocean view from this breathtaking Tuscan-style villa perched atop Montecito's coveted Ortega Ridge.
The moment one steps through the front door, one's gaze is immediately drawn outward, past the limestone columns and travertine tiles into the simple elegance and comforting ambiance of the living room. But the view extends even further, as the pocket doors on the living room wall slide back to reveal an expanse of emerald green grass and rippling infinity pool. Beyond these tactile pleasures, the earth falls away, exposing the flank of the Santa Ynez Mountains and the misty coastal plain.
From the edge of the living room, a long corridor leads to a cozy, private den with beautiful hardwood flooring. Down the opposite hallway, a few steps beyond the lavish dining room lies an expansive chamber that successfully integrates the family room and kitchen as well as as additional dining area. Granite counter tops, a wide copper sink and stainless-steel appliances furnish the kitchen, and the unified setting allows for easy conversation with guests as they relax in front of the fireplace and widescreen television.
Upstairs, the master bedroom radiates with warm yellow tones that draw upon the light of the midday sun and burnish to a golden glow sunset. Through the panoramic sliding doors, one can step onto the wide balcony and experience the majesty of the mountains tapering down towards the sunlit sea. Walk-in closets and a luxurious bathroom complete the idyllic setting.
Further amenities include elevator, butler's pantry, two upstairs guest bedrooms, three car garage, a guest house, poolside spa, outside fireplace, covered patio and a barbecue area.
