    Description

    Reminiscent of an estate in the French countryside yet mere moments to world-class beaches, this beautiful French-inspired Montecito estate exudes an ambiance of relaxed luxury. Christened La Dolce Vita, the main residence and detached structure have been exquisitely maintained to this day. Its distinct architecture lends itself nicely to Montecito's coveted indoor-outdoor lifestyle. Many of the rooms have outdoor access and multiple windows, allowing for an abundance of natural light and listening to the nearby waves crashing on a warm summer night.Through traditional blue wooden gates, a flagstone pathway, bordered by precisely-trimmed hedges and other tasteful landscaping, leads one to an imposing stone turret entryway and a dramatic curved staircase with clerestory window.The home's cool white stucco exterior is accented by colorful trim, while the gray roof is complemented by terra cotta tiles and chimney caps. The immediate presence of refined detail is sure to impress the most discerning future owners and guests. Wide-plank wood floors, vaulted ceilings and soft-toned walls grace many rooms of the home. The spacious sunken living room, a perfect gathering place for family and friends, features a welcoming fireplace, built-in cabinetry and a wall of French doors that open to the pergola, terrace and pool. The charming pergola is a splendid place to relax, host guests, and dine al-fresco year-round. The kitchen and adjacent breakfast area are the heart of the home. The kitchen's decoratively-painted tile back-splash, traditional pale blue-gray cabinets, wide-plank wood floor and center island are evocative of a French country kitchen. High-end appliances add practicality and modern convenience. The breakfast nook features a fireplace, vaulted open beam ceiling and French doors to the pergola, for ease of al fresco dining. The intimate formal dining room is simple, yet sophisticated, with a stunning wrought iron chandelier, sconces and windows looking out to the front gardens. The entryway's impressive staircase leads to a single destination, the fabulous master suite. The retreat features an open beam vaulted ceiling, a fireplace, a generous sitting room and sumptuous bathroom with dual sinks and distinctive tiled floors. Three comfortable guest bedrooms, one of which is currently utilized as a den, are conveniently located on the main floor, as are two full bathrooms and a powder room. Located adjacent to the main house and accessed via a flagstone pathway is a detached structure with a 2-car garage. While the interiors of the home are inspiring, the grounds and location of this French Montecito estate are certainly standouts as well. The approximate 0.55, mostly flat and usable acre is completely walled with gracious engineered lawns, mature trees, hedges and other lush landscaping, creating a tranquil sanctuary. A refreshing pool and spa are embraced by lawn and the flagstone terrace. If the ocean is calling, a convenient path leads from Hill Road to Channel Drive where one can discover Montecito's much-loved Butterfly Beach, the luxurious Four Seasons Biltmore Hotel & Resort, and the exclusive Coral Casino Beach and Cabana Club. The wonderful restaurants and shopping of Coast Village Road are located less than a mile away. This endearing Montecito estate and its unsurpassed location combine to manifest a truly remarkable lifestyle.
