What would you do if you had an extra $13 mil in your bank account? Would you consider buying this house? This gated Montecito, California home is reminiscent of the Italian countryside and situated on a private 11+ acre parcel with panoramic ocean, harbor and mountain views. The finest detailing throughout this 5 bedrooms, 5.5 bath main house + a 1 bedroom guest house with separate gated driveway. Garages for 5 cars, designed by Marc Appleton and built by Paul Franz.
Don’t you think that anything located in beautiful California has something extra magical about it? Maybe that’s because the pictures are always filled with sunshine!
Private. Love that!
Welcome to the villa.
I adore the courtyard.
Beams “al natural” bring a rustic feel. Take a look at the amazing views.
Everything feels very neutral.
No matter how expensive or not your house is, nothing can substitute rooms that feel like you can live in them, have your family and friends over. That’s what is really important in a house and this family room has this feeling.
A very warm kitchen. I really like the natural feel of this space.
Just perfect sized.
Don’t you also love this sitting area off the master?
This is stunning! Don’t miss the ceiling.
What about this door? I love the patina on it.
Choose your “poison”.

So green, so sunny, so summer!
The guest house feels private and has lovely views.
The perfect place for guests or if you like to have some quiet time.
This would be a place where I’d coke to read.
I think this pool is calling your name…

How are you today? I hope you’re having a relaxing day so far. I’m trying to take it easy this week. Last week I was overdoing myself, spending too many hours working and not taking any time to recharge my energy and my mind. I’m learning to balance things because harmony only happens where there is balance. You need to find it in your life to feel happy, to feel you’re doing the right thing and especially to feel healthy. So, having said that, I’m searching for my balance this week. What are you searching for your this week? Let’s try to improve our quality of life. We really deserve that.

Lindo post Luciane! Este tipo de casa tem tudo a ver comigo, acho que meu sangue italiano falando mais alto. Desde que meu marido teve um AVC ha dois meses, tenho encontrado conforto e distracao em seu blog. Obrigada pelas lindas imagens e inspiracoes. Beijo e uma semana linda e iluminada.
I would buy this house in a heart beat! Problem is I don’t have an extra 13 mil!
This villa is fabulous! And your’re right about houses in CA… just something about them that is so lush and sunny! Perpetual summertime!!
And this… is what villas are made of! I LOVE this one so much. Just looking at all the photos brings a sense of calm. The views are gorgeous, the exposed beams my favorite, but I also love the turquoisy colour on the doors and windows… and, oh that wine cellar!!!
Hugs to finding a moment of balance that we can all enjoy!
That pool is absolutely amazing!
The views are ridiculous! I love how private all of the individual spaces seem. If only…
That pool and WINE CELLAR are calling my name, Luciane! Just stopping by to say HI! xxoo
I love this place so much it hurts! GREAT post, yet again!
This is pretty close to perfection. So many luxury houses make you feel stand-offish, but this one feels very comfortable and inviting, like a family could really live here. While the interiors are beautiful, nothing can compare to the luxuriant landscaping, the fabulous loggia, terrace, pool, and the incomparable views. And I love the blue-green trim on the exterior. I could be quite happy in the guest house. Thanks for finding this one. Hope you’re feeling more balanced today!
Perfection! Nothing pretentious about this home and it definitely feels like a home!
This is my kind of home. Beautiful. I love the area. I have stopped posting but I haven’t stopped visiting.
Absolutely stunning home..I love everything about it!
