974 Park Ln, MONTECITO

Behind private gates on 2.23 impressive acres, this Park Lane oasis assures undeniably dramatic coastal views from the upper reaches of Montecito's Golden Quadrangle. With a minimalist aesthetic and contemporary design the main house, separate guesthouse, and artist studio each stand alone in dramatic contrast to the stunning natural setting. Like a solarium, the welcoming main house with a sunlit entry is flooded with light from custom windows and doors. In a sunken living room, new wood floors, built-in teak cabinets, fireplace, and wood plank ceiling are focal points of a sunny great room with striking coastal and hillside views.The open kitchen features an Italian Bertazzoni range and stainless appliances.The main living spaces and view terraces offer pristine ocean and island views that stretch out for miles along the scenic California coastline. Floating stairs lead to the master suite that occupies the entire second floor. An expansive veranda with more unobstructed views is an ideal perch for relaxed days or epic nights of stargazing. The master bedroom with zen-like appeal echoes serenity with panoramic views from corner windows and sliding doors open to the terrace. The master bathroom features a sunken tub and walk-in shower. A second downstairs bedroom opens to another private hillside patio and private spa area. Shady paths and carved stone borders lead to a luxurious pool terrace flanked by a guesthouse and artist studio. With European flair for the uncomplicated, each individually curated space has a chic modern vibe. True to form with simple elegance the guesthouse offers a sleek kitchenette, wide plank walnut flooring and fireplace. A spa-like bathroom is well-appointed and features Venetian plaster and warm teak accents. With avant-garde style the artist studio is drenched in natural light. Skylights, soaring ceilings, and disappearing sliding doors allow the stunning landscape and ocean backdrop to permeate the inspired indoor-outdoor environment. With a full bathroom, the expansive space could effortlessly transform to luxurious guest quarters or a totally cool pool house. The sparkling pool with built-in spa, a dining terrace with gas heaters, an outdoor kitchen, lawn, and fire pit area define this central patio as an exquisite and playful entertaining hub. Modern architectural elements of steel, glass, cement, and symmetry reside in dramatic contrast and harmony with lush native plants, succulents, mature oaks, colorful grasses, and blooms. Resting high above the Montecito landscape and coastal backdrop the botanic beauty of this memorable property has been tamed, terraced, and landscaped to perfection.
