Perhaps the finest estate to hit the market in decades, Oakview is an exceptionally crafted, painstakingly realized example of classic, East Coast-inspired American architecture infused with countless contemporary amenities and exquisite custom details. A legacy property set proudly on 3.4 sublimely manicured acres, this two-story, six-bedroom, 11-bath estate sits in the picturesque foothills of the Santa Ynez Mountains and boasts horizon views of the bright blue Pacific and Channel Islands. Meticulously designed in 2010 by award-winning Santa Barbara-based architect Don Nulty with the help of Feng Shui master David Cho, landscaping by Mark Rios, and impeccable interiors by Kyle Irwin, the 10,000-square-foot main house is brimming with breathtaking classic American manor details, soul-soothing elements and chic modern comforts. With no detail or amenity overlooked, the interior boasts a chef-caliber kitchen, multiple formal and informal living areas, a well-appointed master suite, additional catering kitchen, wine room and state-of-the-art professional theater. Only the finest in materials were utilized to create design touches, including vaulted ceilings, gleaming hardwood floors, detailed handmade crown moldings, custom architectural millwork, and view-framing bay windows. Step out onto the spacious veranda through one of many sets of French doors to lounge beside a wood-burning fireplace, screen a movie on the outdoor living room, observe the koi pond or just take in the vast rolling lawn, gardens and ocean and mountain vistas.
The estate’s masterfully manicured grounds—much of them visible from the veranda—are replete with resort-quality amenities, including an outdoor kitchen and barbeque area (ideal for entertaining in the temperate Montecito weather), an 800-square-foot pool cabana with a full kitchen and bedroom, a standalone two-bedroom guest house and a championship tennis court equipped with dual viewing areas. Lavender-lined garden paths lead to the sparkling pool, gazebos and a picturesque swing hung from the namesake oak tree.
While an extremely private retreat, Oakview is located mere minutes from the shops on Montecito’s Coast Village Road, the Upper Village, the San Ysidro Ranch, Rosewood Miramar Hotel, and some of Califormia’s finest beaches. The property lies within the coveted Montecito Union School District, consistently rated as one of the finest school’s in California.
Oakview. A place to gather family and friends to live life to its fullest and create long-lasting memories.
