This exceptional Montecito Estate, located in town, is a rare gem. Originally designed in 1917 and constructed in 1921 by the renowned architect Winsor Soule, who played a pivotal role in shaping Santa Barbara’s design code and El Encanto Hotel. Elsie De Wolfe, widely regarded as the pioneer of interior design in the early 20th century, skillfully blended Spanish elements with colonial style, incorporating her signature lattice work, as well as Asian and European influences throughout the property. Meticulously restored and updated by Kyle Irwin Design over the course of a year, this estate perfectly marries historic charm with modern amenities.

Situated in the highly sought-after lower village of Montecito, this property offers the ideal location, just blocks away from the Country Mart, Coast Village Road, and the beach. With the grandeur and privacy befitting a classic Montecito estate, you can easily walk, bike, or drive to downtown, the funk zone, and other attractions within minutes. However, leaving the serenity of this magnificent property may prove to be a challenge. Imagine yourself relaxing by the 3/4 Olympic-sized pool, inspired by the iconic Hearst Castle, while dining under the shade of magnificent grand oak trees. For gatherings and special moments with loved ones, there are two garden amphitheaters where unforgettable memories can be made.

Spanning four stories, the house offers 5 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms and a variety of exceptional features. The ground floor houses a fully-equipped gym with Peloton bikes, weights, and a Pilates reformer. The first floor boasts an inviting chef’s kitchen, a grand piano room perfect for music and gatherings, a library room, and two stunning De Wolfe sunrooms. One sunroom is designed for elegant dining under the lattice, while the other offers a cozy space for relaxation. Additionally, there is a separate guest suite on this floor. The second floor comprises three bedrooms, each with its own fireplace, private deck, and en-suite bathroom. On the third floor, a hidden staircase leads to a stylish screening room and play area. The master bedroom, a true sanctuary of relaxation, awaits on this floor, complete with an oversized closet and a charming Romeo and Juliet balcony. The house is thoughtfully designed to allow for optimal airflow, and it has been upgraded with state-of-the-art HVAC, Nest smart home technology, Sonos sound system, and other essential creature comforts both indoors and outdoors. Furthermore, an exquisite collection of antique and vintage pieces harmoniously blend with modern design elements throughout the property. A separate two-car garage is also available, equipped to accommodate electric vehicles or classic cars.
