1333 E Mountain Dr, SANTA BARBARA

There are certain things that imbue an estate with world-class status. Its location and its ''bones'' occupy that privileged list. This magnificent Spanish Colonial Revival-style Montecito property offers both. Resting on approximately two acres in the affluent community's coveted ''Golden Quadrangle,'' it is perched in the foothills yet is just minutes from the charming Upper Village, schools, services and pristine beaches. Its bones are born of exceptional materials. No expense was spared. Almost $2 million was spent on custom cabinetry and stonework, including native sandstone unearthed and cut on the property. This stone is found accented throughout the home, including in the home's four wood-burning fireplaces. One hundred-fifty-year-old roof tiles were imported from Colombia.There are Saltillo and Moroccan tiles, antique wood beams and light fixtures. The very private estate is surrounded by mature trees yielding only to stunning ocean, island and mountain vistas. Great expanses of custom wood and bronze multi-pane windows and French doors allow a near seamless flow of interior and exterior pleasures from every room and throughout the grounds. Privacy and safety are ensured with a top-of-the-line security system, dual electric gates, grounds lighting, a full-house-power generator, and a state-of-the-art firefighting, fire prevention and fire-safe storage room which could also be the site of a future elevator. A Crestron smart home system is used to control most of the systems, including the gates, HVAC, audio and visual, security and the pool. Provenance is also a requirement for an estate to be considered truly superlative, and it must include outstanding design and construction. Here, the home and ancillary structure were designed by Don Nulty, an award-winning architect associated with many luxury homes and estates, as are the builder, Rich Coffin, and interior designer, Sandra Canada. The grounds were designed by Grant Castleberg, the noted landscape architect responsible for the beauty of Santa Barbara's revered Alice Keck Park Memorial Gardens.
