The "Hedgerow District" of Montecito is the well-established neighborhood where homes are largely concealed by century old meticulously manicured hedges, lending privacy and a bit of mystery to fine historic estates and beautifully maintained homes.
Villa Monte Sereno, in classic "hedgerow style", sits proudly on nearly an acre behind private, wrought iron gates and characteristic massive hedges, resulting in an exquisite and secluded property suitable for the discerning world traveler. With an outward Mediterranean aesthetic of natural colored stucco and red tile roofs, the architectural and interior design blend with a certain relaxed elegance that is classic, comfortable and very "Californian"! From sunrise to sunset, amazing views of the Santa Ynez mountains create a dramatic backdrop to this fabulous property.
In the main house, with smart design and fine detail, an abundance of amenities are offered throughout the property that the discerning traveler will appreciate. The configuration of the Main House consists of 4 en suite Bedrooms all with Ultra HD Smart TV's. The Master Suite (upstairs) is a sumptuous and romantic retreat with a luxurious King size bed and spectacular mountain views from the Juliet balcony. The large, spa-like Master Bath features a walk-in marble shower with a rain shower head. The two Guest Bedrooms upstairs feature a Queen size bed in one room and two twin beds in the other.
