With inspiration from the Italian countryside, Guy Lowell, an architect from Boston, designed this grand Italian estate in 1914 at the top of one of Montecito's most prominent lanes featuring estates dating back to the early 1920's with world renowned gardens as well as architecture. The current owners completed the renovation of this home in 2006 with the goal that the integrity of the Lowell Italianate design be enhanced by the addition of luxurious amenities for today's lifestyle which include advanced systems for music, theatre, lighting and internet needs. With 13,950 +/- square feet in the main residence, the easy floor plan offers 7 bedrooms, 8 baths, spacious light filled public rooms with views, a library, sumptuous theatre, brick lined wine cellar, loggia with fireplace, entertainment terraces, and half moon infinity pool with columns as if the property truly was located outside a small country village in Italy. In addition, you can stroll along meandering paths that lead from the formal gardens to the "secret gardens" below where you find a tennis court, picnic areas and the private well. Your guests can enjoy the gatehouse above the garage, the lower recreation room and the lushly landscaped gardens on these incredibly rare 6.2 ocean and mountain view acres.
