The epitome of grace and grandeur, the ultra-private neoclassical estate presides over 4 acres of mountain views, mature eucalyptus, and 200-year-old oaks. Once host to a breathtaking music pavilion while part of the original Arcady Estate, the approx. 7,775 Sq.ft. main house was extensively renovated by acclaimed Warner Group Architects to combine Palladian details with modern design. 4 bedrooms in total, the ground floor is an entertainer's paradise with the airy great room opening up to terraced gardens galore. Symmetry, style, and a natural flow from the residence to the gardens embody Montecito's standard of elevated outdoor living. This masterful garden property (featured in Veranda Magazine & Architecture Digest) also enjoys a guest house, Roman pool with spa, rare lighted tennis court, full house generator, two separate 2-car garages, Bocce court, and incredible original walls, stonework, fountains, and ponds. The amenities offer the sophisticated, yet effortless character only seen in an older European estate, and this illustrious showplace speaks for itself.
