Petite Chardonnay Vineyard • Ocean & Mountain Views

Villa Raphael is a remarkable estate and petite Chardonnay vineyard. Expertly positioned on a glorious and mesmerizing ocean view promontory, this South facing 5-acre property started as a dream that was expertly realized by the accomplished architect Richard Landry and designer Sue Firestone.  

Set among magnificent oaks, olives, and fruit trees, the owners and their team crafted this inspired  estate with visionary expertise, meticulous attention to detail and true authenticity to create a home and sanctuary for luxurious everyday living and spirited entertaining.

The residence has a grand scale with an intimate footprint.  Upon entering, guests are immediately met with an expansive view of the ocean, Channel islands, rolling hillsides and vineyard.  The main level includes the well-designed chef’s kitchen and ocean view breakfast room, open plan living and dining rooms all with French Doors and windows to the gardens and views.  A short hallway leads to the award-winning, book lined and paneled library with views over the koi pond and adjoining the sumptuous, five-star master suite.

Upstairs there is a very private guest suite, a gym and generous office or third bedroom.  The lower level opens out to the gardens and has a wine cellar, media/ game room and a wonderful bonus or work room complete with ample storage for crafts and party supplies.

Decomposed granite paths wind throughout the property, gardens and vineyard with stops at a romantic rose covered gazebo, past a small stream and custom designed koi pond and arriving at the private, well appointed guest house.  

This meticulous Montecito estate offers every amenity for living a relaxed but refined lifestyle in one of the most coveted and admired communities in the world.
