850 Rockbridge Rd, SANTA BARBARA

Discover this graciousTudor estate in the coveted Riven Rock enclave. Designed by locally recognized architect Thomas Bollay, the estate is bounded by over an acre of oak studded grounds offering tranquility and privacy - yet with easy access to both Montecito villages, mountain trails, the beach, and downtown Santa Barbara. Inside you will find open beam ceilings, hardwood floors, custom French doors and windows, three fireplaces, and an epicurean kitchen with a six burner Viking range and double convection oven. There is also a private office off the large master bedroom and an old fashioned carpeted attic hide-away on the third level. The storybook detached guest house features a living space, bedroom, and full bathroom. It could serve as office or studio space as well.Outside, there are dozens of venerable oaks, hand cut stone walls, verdant lawns, gardens, and many hidden spaces for reflection or just fun. In one of the most prestigious areas in the heart of Montecito, this property was part of McCormick's (heir to International Harvester fortune) original 87-acre 'Riven Rock' estate. The name came from an oak tree near the main gate, which had split a large boulder through which it was growing. Some of the estate's original outbuildings are still part of the present 34 homes. Here you will find handcrafted stone walls, bridges, winding roads, and lush landscaping enticing you to a tranquil stroll.
