A soulful restoration is now complete in the heart of Montecito's Upper Village. Inspired by the view of the Santa Ynez Mtns & Tulum's bohemian-minimalism, the property is a showpiece for indoor-outdoor living.

Greeted by the original, hand-laid stone motor court & historic wooden gate imported from Spain, the restoration takes it's cue from the original underlying Moorish architecture & authentic materials. Redesigned using muted tones & contemporary finishes, the residence is sophisticated, dramatic & modern.

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.
