From its private, nearly 11 acre setting to its expansive mountain and ocean views, this remarkable villa offers an effortless and enviable modus vivendi.Montecito-z-Outdoor-06

This architectural marvel has gone through several graceful revivals throughout the years. In its latest reincarnation, this newly reimagined Tuscan villa recently entered the premier echelon of design.

Balancing and celebrating opposing elements, this incredible residence is refined, rustic, sophisticated, airy, grounded and all the while aglow with natural light.Montecito-z-Outdoor-04

Originally crafted by the architectural dream-team of Harrison Design and Giffin & Crane, this gracious estate is a thoughtful study in everyday elegance. A creamy palate skillfully layers shades of white, linen and soft taupe to create an solid foundation that lets the many custom details shine.Montecito-z-Outdoor
