888 COLD SPRINGS Road,
Provenance and pedigree meet comfort and contemporary conveniences on this breathtaking and very private 4.5-acre gated Montecito estate. Its Mediterranean home, pair of lovely guesthouses, and pool house rest on the grounds of historic El Mirador. There is a special, rarefied quality here, yet the ambiance evokes a sort of joie de vivre. Impeccably landscaped gardens, expansive manicured lawns and hedges, a pond, pergolas, terraces, and a large pool provide space and amenities for extensive entertaining and celebrations. The main residence, though substantial, offers an air of intimacy, warmth, and calm abiding. Consider there is liberal use of warm woods in floors, masterfully crafted cabinetry and paneling. Vast open-beam and truss, barrel- and groin-vaulted ceilings combine with an abundance of French doors and windows to imbue the home with a profusion of spaciousness and light. This is a truly magical Montecito estate.
