Montecito house description

Point of View offers a unique perspective on the vacation experience, creating a perfect balance of relaxed elegance and designer style. Located in the lower foothills just above Montecito Country Club, the home sits perched on gently sloping grounds offering views that span from the majestic foothills to the blue coastal waters below .

Formerly equestrian trails on an old Montecito estate, the quiet streets wind through this beloved neighborhood of flowering gardens and graceful architecture. The homes here actually date back to the 1920's.

Completely remodeled to perfection, the home has a peaceful and regenerative energy. Many of the architectural elements of the house were created using salvaged, reclaimed, and antique materials from France, Spain, Switzerland and farms of the mid-west. The use of old materials in new construction adds character, elegance and a relaxed grace to this home.

The main living space is a bright open room with soaring ceilings featuring rustic barn beams and railroad trestles. The Living and Dining Room blend together seamlessly with a game table and linen covered armchairs dividing the two spaces. The fine furnishings of the home are first and foremost designed for comfort.

The large stone fireplace with 18th century mantle from France welcomes guests to gather and relax in the Living Room, but can also be enjoyed as a warm and welcoming backdrop to elegant dinners in the adjacent Dining Room. A wall of glass doors open to the expansive deck with ocean and garden views.

The Kitchen and Family Room offer yet another special place to relax and and unwind in front of a 2nd marble fireplace adorned with a salvaged mantle from Paris. The kitchen is well appointed with professional appliances, soapstone counters, wine cooler, and a large walk-in pantry filled with picnic items and serving pieces. For those who bring their work along, the Office offers a quiet place to set up a laptop, make phone calls and stay connected even while on vacation!

The romantic Master Suite with soaring ceiling and king-size bed faces backyard and ocean views. Amenities here include a soapstone desk with antique marble balustrades, flat screen TV and antique corbel night stands. A balcony offers a serene spot to begin or end the day.

The spacious Master Bathroom adds to the luxurious feel of the Master Suite. Walls of smooth marble, glass top vanity, unique cast-iron and steel soaking tub, walk-in shower and large walk-in closet complete the smart design features of this spa-like space.

A south facing Guest Bedroom offers a queen-size bed facing the ocean views, shares the balcony with the Master Suite, and has a private full bathroom.

Two north-facing Guest Bedrooms share another balcony facing the entry. One room offers a king-size bed and flat screen TV. The other Guest Bedroom offers two luxurious and comfortable full-size beds. Both rooms offer sliding glass doors to their shared balcony. These two rooms, plus the Hall Bathroom, make the perfect area for a second family or older children to enjoy some privacy in their 'wing' of the home.

A large deck is the unifying feature of this wonderful family home. A generous sized teak table overlooks the back yard, with coastal and mountain views. as the backdrop to every meal. This space is complete with an outdoor Living Room with deep sofas, gas heaters and market umbrellas for all kinds of weather. For the amateur grill master, the outdoor kitchen is generously equipped with a top of the line gas grill and Big Green Egg Smoker.

The surrounding gardens offer guests the opportunity to enjoy culinary treats from several fruit trees including avocados, lemons, limes, olives and figs. There is an edible garden with herbs and seasonable vegetables. Enjoy a game of bocce ball on the lawn. A host of recreational toys have been generously provided, while a warm water outdoor shower offers returning beach combers a place to rinse off before coming inside.

Point of View is relaxed and luxurious, with an ease and informal grace that is sure to have guests exclaiming, "C'est magnifique. Point de Vue es perfection!"
