Sophisticated Tuscan Villa

From its private, nearly 11 acre setting to its expansive mountain and ocean views, this remarkable property was originally crafted by the architectural dream-team of Harrison Design and Giffin & Crane. Through a graceful revival, this Tuscan villa recently entered the premier echelon of design. Listed with Riskin Partners, Montecito, CA.




This gracious estate is a thoughtful study in everyday elegance. A creamy palate skillfully layers shades of white, linen and soft taupe to create an exquisite foundation that lets the many custom details shine.  Throughout the home remarkable details come together to create a timeless composition.




Ancient imported Media stone anchor the floors while a hand-painted, Lyptus wood ceiling crowns the formal living room. Reclaimed beams and a barrel-vaulted ceilings define the open family room and compliment to the dining room’s white wainscoting and the newly remodeled Carrera-clad kitchen.




A hand-crafted, 200-year-old chestnut oak staircase ascends to the home’s second level. The master suite, designed to capture the remarkable ocean and mountain views, creates a haven for relaxation. A barrel-vaulted ceiling lends to a light and airy feel while French doors open to a private terrace that overlooks the Santa Barbara harbor and lush Montecito hillside.





The upper level continues to two spacious, mountain-view bedroom suites complete with walk-in closets and deluxe baths. The hallway ends at a charming, light filled playroom or study. A secondary stairway descends from the east wing of the home to the entertainment level that is full of flexible spaces. Graced by a temperature-controlled wine cellar, well-equipped media room, and a sunny gym, these engaging destinations help turn this already versatile home into an all-inclusive estate. Completing the lower level is a beautiful guest room with a full bath.

Just beyond, a formal rose garden, vegetable garden and wildlife conservation area further establish the estate’s magnificent and secluded feel.
