California Coastal Living Is A Breeze At Brand New $14.8 Million Estate In Montecito

Real Estate

Traditional design done well can give an estate instant gravitas. And that’s what this newly built home in Montecito has.

The two-story has a timeless elegance that makes it looks as though it is truly rooted in the Southern California coastal enclave, which evolved over more than a century from a popular spot for wealthy Easterners seeking winter homes to the celebrity-populated community it is today.

The nearly one-acre property is above Coast Village Road, with its charming boutiques, upscale hotels and restaurants, and less than a mile from the sand at dog-friendly Butterfly Beach. Also nearby is the Rosewood Miramar Beach resort, from which the estate takes its inspiration.

A gently curving circular driveway leads to the front of the house, where a four-column portico shelters the sidelight-surrounded front door. Shutters frame the windows along the white façade.

The 6,146 square feet of luxurious interiors reflect the ease of coastal living yet have a dignified air. White millwork and wide-plank oak floors bring continuity and a sense of flow to the living spaces.

A bank of French doors and upper windows line one wall of the two-story paneled living room, which centers on a fireplace.

The white marble kitchen opens to the formal dining room, a family room with a fireplace and the terrace beyond. There’s a sink in the center island as well as in the long peninsula, which can easily seat six diners.

The extended patio has a fireplace and plenty of room for outdoor dining and lounging.

The primary suite features dual closets, a private patio with a fireplace and mountain views. There are three additional ensuite bedrooms and a powder room in the nearly 5,000-square-foot main house.

The close to 1,200-square-foot guest house has another two bedrooms and two bathrooms, providing opportunities for multigenerational living, staff quarters or family visits.

A swimming pool, a barbecue center, mature trees and lawn complete the grounds.

Riskin Partners Estate Group of Village Properties has the listing for 260 Oak Road, Montecito, California. The asking price is US $14.795 million.
