A soulful restoration is now complete in the heart of Montecito's Upper Village. With privacy and tranquility at your fingertips this property was inspired by the view of the Santa Ynez Mtns & Tulum's bohemian-minimalism, and is a showpiece for indoor-outdoor living.

Framing an oversized courtyard, the home is surrounded by the original water feature and fountains, and flanked by a swimming pool and plunge pool. The redesign included mirroring French doors in the main living spaces and adding windows throughout - the result an abundance of natural light flooding into every room. Seamlessly flowing between the kitchen, dining room, and living room, this versatile floor plan offers 2 ground floor ensuite bedrooms, each open up to multiple outdoor spaces; a primary suite upstairs with spectacular mountain views; plus, a separate ADU completed with a kitchen.

The property unfolds with subtlety and emotion inviting a peaceful connection to nature and defining Montecito living.
