The iconic 1919 Montecito abode was purchased in June for $22.5 million and sublimely transformed into an Italian-inspired masterpiece.
Grand architectural elements evoke antiquity – stately columns, arched doorways, and intricate moldings. The palatial five-bedroom villa centers on a Roman courtyard with a fireplace, fountain, and palms. Symmetry and proportion echo ancient aesthetics.
Yet contemporary comforts and California cool equally exude throughout the thoughtfully renovated interiors. The estate, modeled after a Pompeiian villa, immerses residents in timeless grandeur. It is fully furnished, so buyers can inhabit its warm, inviting spaces from day one.
Over eight acres, amenities abound—two guesthouses, a cinematic pool, a tennis court amid ancient trees, and a romantic quarter-mile driveway. The property offers a progression of experiences both public and private, seamlessly blended into a lifestyle of quietly luxurious seclusion.
