Amid the mountains of Montecito, this 1912 Spanish Revival estate conjures the romance of the Mediterranean. At its heart is an 8,306-square-foot residence offering luxurious living and dining spaces, four bedroom suites, and a two-bedroom guest apartment. The master suite’s private balcony, a breezy rooftop deck, and a handsome brick terrace overlook the 2.72-acre grounds, which feature vibrant manicured landscaping, a swimming pool and spa, a pergola beside a tranquil koi pond, and a meditation garden—all with serene views across the treetops to the coastline.
