Nestled on a quiet street in Montecito, 851 Buena Vista Drive is a recently remodeled East Coast inspired masterpiece, coming to the market completely renovated, reimagined, and offering spectacular amenities, ultra-high-end finishes, and exquisite design elements on over two acres. Designed by architect Don Nulty, the estate offers expansive scale with seven bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, 12,168 square feet of polished interior living space, and a guest house. Magnificent ocean and mountain views curate an incredible backdrop for a life of ease and elegance.
Enter the estate via an impressive circular motor court, surrounded by pristine landscaping, mature trees, and a trickling fountain. The home is grand and striking—a white facade lends timeless elegance and a columned entrance beckons residents.
Inside, ceilings soar, abundant windows create sun-soaked rooms, and walnut floors glisten. The living area features French doors that open to the outside paradise, a modern fireplace, and built-in cabinetry. Connected is the chef’s kitchen, which includes a butler’s pantry, marble countertops, and high-end appliances. A dining nook is a perfect place to enjoy breakfast with a view of the grounds. The formal is exquisite, with modern wallpaper, wainscoting, and French doors. An additional sitting room has a curved bay window and a fireplace.
Through multiple sets of French doors, step into the magnificent outdoor space. A stone patio features a fireplace and a stone pathway leads through the terraced grounds to the pool area, which feels like a resort with a 65-foot long pool, expansive pool house with its own bedroom and bathroom, surrounding lawn, and ocean views. Additional areas to dine, entertain, and relax surround the home. Landscaped trails wind through rock formations. Brand new mature olive trees create lushness and a sports court offers opportunities for recreation. It’s a world all your own to explore.
The primary suite is spectacular with double-height ceilings, a wall of windows, a private balcony, a fireplace, and a spa-like bathroom. Enjoy the soaking tub with mountain views and a marble shower and vanity.
The home is bursting with fantastic amenities, including a gym, game room, sunroom, a wet bar—complete with a built-in beer tap and attached walk-in wine cellar—craft room, office/library, ten-seat theater, and a guest home. With no shortage of space for entertainment, work, or study, everything you need is at your fingertips.
Completely modernized, the estate offers high-end audio-visual security, with an alarm system and cameras on every corner of the property. The home includes two water sources—a well and water via the Montecito Water District. Three-car garages are conveniently attached to both the main house and the guest house, including space for risers to turn the current six parking spaces into 12 parking spaces. The best of Montecito is just moments away, including fine dining, shopping, and wine bars. The Valley Club of Montecito, the Birnam Wood Golf Club, and hiking trails offer nearby outdoor recreation.
